Can counterculture still exist? What does it mean when countercultural figures (historical or otherwise) are ripped out of their c...ontext and put into a fanboy's DeviantArt wet dream? It is in this demarcated (mindfuckzone/ The Internet's Dark Heart) where it becomes possible for 50s Americana to exist side by side with 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 its many insidious micro-genres over the terrain like a second skin. Our subconscious desires filtered though 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 with 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 the best course of action is the 'idea' of a 'collaboration' (as if that was even possible anymore in this hyper accelerated acid-meme bathhouse "culture zone").
This film would not have been possible without the help of: Jeff Baij, Kaliisa Conlon, Mike Manning, and Coldstar Ice.
