Can counterculture still exist? What does it mean when countercultural figures (historical or otherwise) are ripped out of their context and put into a fanboys DeviantArt wetdream? It is in this demarcated (mindfuckzone / The Internet's Dark Heart) where it becomes possible for 50s Americana to exist side by side w Japanese tentacle rape, Victorian era fetishism, and Industrial Revolution speculative fiction. The soundtrack to this scorched earth is provided by the Pitchfork media behemoth, a satellite hydra transposing one of it's many insidious micro-genres over the terrain like a second skin. Our subconscious desires filtered through image aggregators, converted into algorithms and passed like currency thru the mind-hands of digital pimp-engineers and distant GUI slaves in India.
Out of this shit heap, two characters emerge ...Deke2, a bad boy cliche who paints w MDMA; and Body by Body, a lazy hermaphrodite organization (bc not getting out of bed is the most radical political action of the year) they decide that the best course of action is the 'idea' of a 'collaboration' (as if that was even possible in this hyper accelerated meta elite warzone) .
