  • In Conclusion
    Posted by barnes on December 23, 2015 at 3:25 am

    My aim with the project was not to find an answer, but engage with and add to this discourse that I find very important. The “sexual emotional aesthetic network,” has endured a disruption and shift in its feeling (networked). Though The Sluts deals with a website, again, it is used to generate hookups as the […]

    Well I have some bad news everyone It turns out that the man museum was just a hoax. Brad is just some 14 year old kid from Pittsburgh who fucking scammed me out of a lot of money. But since I gave him my mom’s money I can’t get the money back. So now my … Continue reading Well shit… &rarr […]

  • Friedkin’s Film on Cruising
    Posted by barnes on December 23, 2015 at 1:59 am

    In a 1980’s film, “Cruising” comes across the opening scene’s screen in large, slow, rolling words. This makes a big and clear statement. Directed and written by William Friedkin, as well as the writer of the novel it is based on, Gerald Walker, the film offers a historical context to this project. This places us […]

  • The Repercussions of Insensitive Rhetoric
    Posted by Daniel on December 23, 2015 at 12:43 am

    Donald Trump’s callous statements on Twitter have caused for intense backlash.  Because @realDonaldTrump represents the “real” Donald Trump, the account is susceptible to much more scrutiny for it’s demeanor than compared to something fake like a parody Twitter account.  What seems to be greatly influenced by Trump’s Twitter account is a new savage trending topic called, #KillTrump. Here are […]

  • High Maintenance // Qasim
    Posted by Emily on December 23, 2015 at 12:05 am

    Scott, the main character of the “High Maintenance” episode titled “Qasim”, gives the initial impression that he’s an every-day guy who’s obsessed with working out and eating properly. He attends two gym sessions a day, six days a week, and is shown preparing meals and exercising inside of his home regularly. The web series utilizes … Continue reading High Maintenance // Qasim […]

  • Scott as a Source (Networked Boredom, Neoliberalism, New “Sites”)
    Posted by barnes on December 22, 2015 at 11:03 pm

    This post engages closely with a secondary source, solely, as I stated in my proposal. In terms of my title, I imply ambiguity in the word “sites,” referring to Delany’s Forty-second Street’s porn theatres etc. physical site, (though not explored much in this source/post The Sluts website), and Grindr as a website. This source is a scholarly […]

SHe literally wakes me up before she goes to work and says “get a job.” What a bitch y’know? Doesn’t she realize how hard my life is? My people are struggling and … Continue reading JOBS?!

    Hello Everyone! The Dark Knight of Meninism has returned! And he’s here to drop some truth on ya’ll. First off, I like porn. I’ve been watching it since high school.

    I need to step up my game. I recently found a subreddit called the red pill and it has changed my life. The red pill says that their website is a discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men. I knew people were talking about men’s rights but I … Continue reading TBH &rarr […]

  • Is there such thing as a conclusion?
    Posted by layne on December 22, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    Well, I certainly have explored the ideas of how we perceive sex. Although I focused, or attempted to, on shattering versus non-shattering sex it looks like I was really attempting to get at the “essence” of sexual pleasure. My initial question of whether an orgasm has anything to do with shattering seems completely irrelevant now. I … Continue reading Is there such thing as a conclusion? […]

  • I have a confession to make.
    Posted by layne on December 22, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    I talked about “The Outs” a little bit, but I honestly was struggling with the concepts of shattering sex within the episodes. I recently watched a movie, one I am embarrassed to admit I watched, but it made me think of the ideas of sex and shattering sex. I thought it was supposed to be … Continue reading I have a confession to make. […]

    Posted by layne on December 22, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    When I started this project I had a different idea of how it was going to play out. I watched five of the seven episodes of the web series “The Outs” (212) when I realized there doesn’t seem to be a lot of shattering sex, at first glance. It seems as if it is more … Continue reading Out and About […]

  • Beyond Sex?
    Posted by layne on December 22, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    I began this project thinking I was going to interpret and analyze a great deal of Berlant’s work, but as the process continues I find myself turning to Bersani more. Let’s get back to that guy. What Bersani suggests about sex is that most people don’t like it (Is the Rectum a Grave? 197).  He … Continue reading Beyond Sex? […]

  • Photographic Death on the Network: the Immortality of Aylan Kurdi
    Posted by newton on December 22, 2015 at 12:04 pm

    In Camera Lucida, Roland Barthes grasps at the essence of photography and attempts to synthesize and explain the medium. He approaches photography by analyzing various images and classifying them, while expressing how he personally interacts with these images. He quantifies a sort of grammar of photographic images, which one may individually assess in their reading … Continue reading Photographic Death on the Network: the Immortality of Aylan Kurd […]

  • We Will Now Be Taking Questions
    Posted by Daniel on December 22, 2015 at 7:24 am

    Just as any presidential candidate is supposed to do, Donald Trump finds himself answering political questions midst his presidential bid.  Twitter has now become an easy platform for citizens to ask presidential candidates political questions.  What is strange is when political questions are also asked to parody Twitter accounts like, @DrunkMiggy. Yup.  Let’s see what we […]

  • Wait a minute…
    Posted by layne on December 22, 2015 at 4:29 am

    In my previous post I explored the concept of depressive realism, and I did so because it lays the groundwork for how we can think of and perceive sex. To take this position is to explore the ideas surrounding sex outside of the typical heteronormative rhetoric. To allow oneself to be shattered (in the context … Continue reading Wait a minut […]

  • Tell Me That’s A Bad Joke, Mr. Trump!
    Posted by Daniel on December 22, 2015 at 3:51 am

    A comical luxury found in the vast cyber-world within the Twitter network’s live feed of diverse statuses is the parody account.  Parody Twitter accounts appear all over the network.  They obtain a persona of a fictional character or, in many cases, a real life person.  For example, while Miguel Cabrera, all-star hitter and first baseman of […]

    It is hard to think about death, let alone see it in a photograph or watch it play out on a screen. What is harder still is to imagine that we can be “anesthetized” to the supposed power of that death. Like any obscenity (although, according to Bazin, the obscenity of real death is not … Continue reading The (Ir)Relevance of the Photographic Imag […]

  • A Brief History of Photographic Suffering and the Promise of Affect
    Posted by newton on December 22, 2015 at 2:01 am

    Photography has various purposes, certainly, and our understanding of said purposes has changed over the years, along with the breadth of its application. The camera was once a niche toy of the elite, not unlike the first automobiles (On Photography 7). Cumbersome, with long development times, the “utilitarian” aspect of the camera, which now seems … Continue reading A Brief History of Photographic Suffering and the Promise of Affect […]

During my meeting with Scott, I proposed a possible explanation that would focus on the gradual shift of daily activities/hobbies from contemporary life to cyberspace. To put it more … Continue reading The Master […]

Berlant … Continue reading Now the fun stuff […]

    Photography is a relatively recent media form that has significantly influenced the world and our perception of reality.

We do, it would seem, … Continue reading Spectral Visions […]

    Before getting into any theory I want to note that in my intro I questioned whether an orgasm has anything to do with shattering.

I posed those questions because they are what honestly went … Continue reading Before continuing […]

The two met in 1972, and soon founded a small religious group known as … Continue reading Technology and Heaven’s Gat […]

    Posted by Emily on December 19, 2015 at 12:39 am

    In the historical past, apotheosis is documented in numbers. Expression and exemplification of development through deification is present in literature, anthropology, music, art, religion, sociology and even economics. While the term “apotheosis” ranges from region to region, the ideology remains intact, spanning from Ancient Greece, Rome and Asia to the present. In Greece, immortality was often … Continue reading A Short History of Apotheosis […]
