Shoes Thrown At Bush - Ducked

After giving what can only be described as "daps" to the Iraqi Prime Minister (see the video below if you don’t belive it) President Bush ducks not one, but two shoes thrown at his ugly head.

Bush’s powers, though similar to those of the the ninja, are thought to originate from the dark side of The Force, therefore enabling him to duck both projectiles (or theoretically allowing him to stage the whole spectacle).

No matter what you think of him, you’ve got to admire the guy’s response.AA He was quoted as saying, "so… some ninja threw his shoes at me… so what?"AAAA That, my ninjas, is relatively gangster.

Trajectory

trajectorymnp.png

A series of imminent and necessary breakdowns are inherent to the production of desire: first, because desires connect up to an outside, with something which is always unrecognized, which is totally foreign; next, because desire is brought to turn upon itself, it is seduced into betrayal (by resentment, fear, hate, etc.); finally, because desires are always collective, but the individual makes these collective desire their own, digests and reintegrates them. In each case, there is a kind of fundamental deadlock to any investigation of the unconscious which reflects the essential paradox of psychoanalysis.

We risk not only our feelings and thoughts but even ourselves as beings entirely: the risk of losing not just our habits, our beliefs and our identities, but the very significance, the subjectivity, of our reality. Everything becomes a trajectory, a cosmic machine, a universal process of production. A becoming-nothing which is the essence of consciousness: and in the end will we know which it is a€" a disease or an experiment? a€"But what do we matter? For alienation is becoming a stranger; not trading places with a double, nor a diagnosis, but rather this mis-recognition of an alien consciousness always already present within enjoyment, within our desire itself.

The Disaster, the Event, Difference a€" this is what is always recognized but never known; or rather, you dona€™t know, you will never know whether this alterity is truly radical or not. We must make a certain wager in order to discover the real, to know our desire, to learn anything at all about ourselves. It is not a question of imitation, but of pure intensities, of movements and singularities and flows. There is always a risk involved in a becoming, a risk which is always recognized and never known to us a€" a displacement of essence internal to becoming, an infinite capacity which transfigures reality.

Fantasy depends upon an element exterior to the situation itself radically exceeding the space which is gazed upon and yet intricately involved in every detail of its structure: it is not only because the gaze is the fantasya€™s only audience that this absolutely alien element is always already the hidden meaning of its excess. But what is ultimately so traumatic is the very fragility and inconsistency not of our fantasy but of reality itself, its ironic vulnerability to sudden and immediate disintegration, our apparent powerlessness in the face of disaster.

Russian hopes to cash in on ;-)

unknownshapemnp.jpg

A series of punctuation marks used to convey a wink in text messages - known as an emoticon - has been trademarked in Russia, says a local businessman.

Entrepreneur Oleg Teterin said the trademark for the ;-) emoticon was granted to him by Russia’s federal patent agency.

But critics doubt the trademark’s legal basis as the emoticon has been in the public domain for years.

Helvetica - The Movie

Stare at that American Apparel ad a little longera€"no, not at those, look at the font. It’s Helvetica, a typeface that is bold, precise, and, like the babe in the ad, it’s on every street corner. However, the story of Helvetica and how it came to be so "used" isn’t what you think; in fact, it’s a story about the tides of war, radical idealism and the neutral Swiss.

In the documentary film Helvetica, the origins and motivations of the promiscuous font are brought to light, and I promise, you have never heard design geeks speak so lustily about anything…. [continued]

So… the reason this feature stopped appearing on the site wasn’t because we all [of a] sudden found some new esteem for the P.C. [ Ed. You might remember initial reader reactions to this series ]. The problem was that I wanted to present this in order, so, we started in the 60’s… but then it just got out of control. So, what I’m trying to say is that we’re skipping the 70’s for now, but we’ll get back there, and we’re jumping ahead to the 80’s. For those of you who were too young, while you’re watching this - just realize that it IS in fact who you’re thinking.

Yes, my ninjas. The semi-re-re mickey d’s ad of the week is back for now.
