Brave New Whatever

Brave/New/Whatever: a semi-public dumping ground for research and experimentation, right on the outskirts of the main drag.



Original photos and work-in-progress tagged here.

I try to live naked in the world, unashamed even under attack, unafraid even though I know how much there is to fear. What I have always feared is being what people have thought me—my stepfather’s willing toy, my mother’s betrayer, my lover’s faithless tease, my family’s ultimate shame, the slutty, racist, stupid cracker dyke who doesn’t know what she is doing. Trying always to know what I am doing and why, choosing to be known as who —is as tricky as it ever was. I tell myself that life is the long struggle to understand and love fully. That to keep faith with those who have literally saved my life and made it possible for me to imagine more than survival, I have to try constantly to understand more, love more fully, go more naked in order to make others as safe as I myself want to be.

“I feel like human beings are basically adaptable and resilient, and I think we survive by doing this whole thing of shrugging off the rupture and embracing the damage as a necessary part of some longitudinal process in which there are no rights and wrongs as seen from space or whatever. That’s my strategy, anyway. Of course my survival strategy is inseparable from my philosophy of a lifeworld, so in that sense I’m an avatar for my own politics as far as it’s possible to be.
I take that pretty seriously somehow: to live your truth in the world and be the change you want to etc etc neoliberal-greeting-card-Facebook-banner-corporate-NGO-coffee-mug—you know the score. I’m into prototypes, though. Like before the truth became the cliché, somebody somewhere was out there shouting about that shit in the void.” — JD

GIVE THE WORD [from ATEMWENDE IV]


Everyone comes, no one missing, male or female.
(Siphets and Probyls among them.)

A man comes, a mensch.

Tears near you, big as a world-apple, 
Passed through, flooded, 
by answers,
                    answers,
                                        answers.

Frozen through — who does that?

"Pass," you say,
                             ”Pass,”
                                              ”Pass.”

The scab quietly lets loose of the roof of your mouth 
and wafts light onto your tongue,
                                              light.

- Paul Celan

"There’s these GIFs about me, these stupid stereotypes people have of me as this overly emotional character that cries in his room every night,” says Drake. “There are jokes because of Degrassi, because I’m Canadian, because I make music for women. There are memes of guys crying to my music.” He scowls, then shrugs. “I love it. I heart those photos when I see them on Instagram.”

Internet Pedagogies for 2K14

bed is a classroom

body is an office

likes are highlights

scrolling a dash is twirling a pen

rolling eyes is always that

fevers are free writes 

fingers are tongues
