    Here it is, the turrrrible video that Youtube most recently banned from my Topless Topics channel! As you can tell, it's definitely the most raunchiest of porn, unsafe for even a sailor's eyes. e.e Anyhow I just bit the bullet and upgraded to a mid-level Vimeo account, so I can upload 5 GB per week--that's about one or two videos per week, which should be plenty until I can start pumping them out full time (i.e. quit my day job and become a full time video maker). However video making ain't cheap, not least of which is having to pay Vimeo, so if you like my content, please consider donating! You can make a one-time Paypal donation to ToplessTopicsTV@gmail.com (don't forget the TV!) or you can sign up to be a regular patron on my Patreon account (https://www.patreon.com/toplesstopics) and get access to various cool perks like early access to videos and specially targeted content if you donate a little more! (wow that sounds money-grabby. I don't mean it like that, I swear!) Look for some all-new video content to be uploaded as soon as I have a few hours free to edit it, hopefully this weekend. A friend in LA with a nice camera and I went around Venice Beach asking passersby what their opinions were on topfree equality, it was pretty nerve-wracking but I got some really excellent stuff! Here's hoping I can get it up here soon!

      Music: "Hep Cats" by Incompetech.com Some relevant links: http://gotopless.org/topless-laws has lots of good info, including a map showing in what states it's *technically* legal to go topless as a female. Good luck getting away with it, though. Phew, finally got (part of) the footage from Venice Beach I keep telling you guys about. There's a lot of footage I haven't even gotten to include yet, so I'm gonna have to break it up into a few parts. Here's the beginning, though. Huge thanks to Anthony for lending me his camera and talents to film this. It was so nervewracking! Totally different from filming by myself or with my fiance in the bedroom, haha. Dunno when I'll have time or opportunity to film more of this, hopefully soon. Maybe at the ren faire coming up? Anyway. Stay posted! (ps most of my videos are now available on Vimeo only, as I got tired of dealing with Youtube banning my videos as "porn." You can find them here: https://vimeo.com/toplesstopics) You can also help me fund bigger and better projects if you like by signing up to be a patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ToplessTopics And to keep up with future uploads, other projects that are going on, etc., I invite you to follow both the Twitter and Tumblr accounts: https://twitter.com/ToplessTopics http://toplesstopics.tumblr.com/

        We wander these pathless woods Seeking not the meaning of life But the rapture and beauty in living ----------------------------------------------- I made this with some friends while exploring Oak Openings in Northwest Ohio. The goal was to show that even in the middle of flat Ohio there is beauty all around us. It's also a reminder to myself to stop over-thinking and go live a little! Thanks a lot to Alex Goetz, Brian Dickman, and Trevor Lee for helping me shoot this and being inspiring explorers! Music licensed through Music Bed

                DOWNLOAD HERE THE CONFERENCE'S HANDOUT: http://www.mediafire.com/download/y4p13g499v9dwz9/Ray_Brassier_Naturalism%2C_Nominalism%2C_Materialism_handout.pdf Nominalism denies the existence of abstract entities (universals, forms, species, propositions, etc.). Traditional nominalism proceeded from an empiricist epistemology that challenges the very possibility of metaphysics, whether idealist or materialist. The critique of empiricism is taken to entail the refutation of nominalism. But nominalism contains a valuable insight for materialists: reality does not have propositional form. This is an insight that should be taken up by post-Darwinian materialists, who ought to deny that reality has a conceptual structure. For a consequent materialist, realism about abstract entities is problematic because it re-iterates the theological presumption of a pre-established harmony between conceptual order and real order. The question is whether materialism can take up this nominalistic insight while jettisoning the empiricist prejudices that tie it to skeptical relativism. For the claim that reality is devoid of propositional form need not require denying that we can use language to capture aspects of reality or that concepts have ontological purchase. This is what I propose to investigate using the work of Wilfrid Sellars, who managed to combine nominalist semantics, epistemic naturalism, and what I will call ‘methodological materialism’. Ray Brassier is a member of the philosophy faculty at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon, known for his work in philosophical realism. He was formerly Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Middlesex University, London, England. He is the author of Nihil Unbound: Enlightenment and Extinction and the translator of Alain Badiou’s Saint Paul: The Foundation of Universalism and Theoretical Writings and Quentin Meillassoux’s After Finitude: An Essay on the Necessity of Contingency. -- The Matter of Contradiction is a series of workshops and seminars initiated by Sam Basu, Fabien Giraud, Ida Soulard and Tom Trevatt. The Matter of Contradiction: War against the sun was organized in collaboration with Inigo Wilkins. More informations can be found here: http://lamatiere.tumblr.com/ -- War against the sun was held at Mute magazine offices at Limehouse Town Hall in London on the 1st and 2nd of March and followed by a workshop on the 3rd. -- Special thanks to Val Ravaglia and Stephen Nachtigall for the video recordings of the event.
