  • Philowixian - Apocalyptic Talking #4
    seem to utilize it the idea of fame has widespread social ramifications The question yet remains what is the reason behind our society s eternal obsession with the celebrity Aficionados of celebrities speak of them as if they are in possession of intimate knowledge only fellow fans may know They are the initiated However in truth they have no personal knowledge of their icon at all What possesses us to take hold of these stars and squeeze them for all their radiance is worth It seems as though nothing differentiates the celebrity from the average individual with identity issues After all as Warhol once said one day everyone will have his fifteen minutes of fame There are innumerable opportunities to become known in today s world that it is difficult to determine why celebrities are special anymore Celebrities are only special inasmuch as they are special to society a rare and therefore valued commodity Their special status in our culture lies less with qualities we attribute to the celebrities that meet certain norms as determined by pop culture and even less with the unique achievements of the stars Rather the controlling will is most paradoxically held by those supposedly left most powerless in the panoptic schema In fact the entire institution of celebrity is born from the desperation of this position of powerlessness This interpretation is hinted at in the discussion regarding the apotheosis and lionizing of convicted murderers We create gods out of monsters because we need to feel as though we are retaining our sense of self even as it gradually is eroded away a sand castle at high tide The desperation we feel as our veridical self disappears births a similar desire to create a new frame of reference After all if we can only exist as

  • Philowixian - Geezer Geyser, Part 1
    example of editing because of the acknowledged strength of the work and the most forgivable example of editing because of the history of the word being edited to lay down some law but first I should note to be fair at least he mentioned that the selection had been edited for content Now the law to be laid down is this it s perfectly ok by the rules that govern our society for the citer of a work to change the words of a novel if he SAYS he s doing so heck in some cases it s ok to appropriate them as his own even if he doesn t say he s doing so After all good poets borrow great poets steal BUT CAVEAT EMPTOR your version has to be better If your version as this was is just a spineless fearful little scratching out of something you re terrified might hurt someone s feelings because a symptom of the racist in you clawing its way to the surface is that you jerk your knees against apparent instances of racism in others then you sir madam or both are a tool and should be put back on your nail
