‘There aint no fold-in shit going on here. I don’t even understand that shit’ –the author.

[First Draft]

 

Chapter The First

In which we learn that the novel is a most remarkable thing, but not quite what we thought. In which we also learn the place of ladies in modern industrial culture, and the importance of being prepared for unexpected and inclement weather.

When writing a cut-up novel for the 21st Century, or a novel that includes cut-up, my advice is to choose your texts well. Remember that the primary role of a cut-up novel should be to transform the consciousness of the reader, to a higher level of perception and understanding of ‘texts’ in general (meaning anything in life that can be read for its underlying and inherent influences, not just the written word -in this sense all of human experience and art can be viewed as ‘text’, from ‘objective’ and subjective perspectives). Additionally, at this late stage of the globalised neoliberal capitalist empire (Acker’s Empire got even more senseless) the only valid cut-up has to attempt to help Rebellion, or else it’s a complete fucking waste of time, do you feel me? I don’t know if Acker’s work can strictly be defined as ‘cut-up’, but to me it is. My treaties here are a response to the spirits of Acker, Gysin and Burroughs, to the extent that they were interested in loosening the connection between the written word and what it (supposedly) refers to –a reaction against the deification of words and the use of words to oppress, by certain entrenched systems of power. Perhaps you could also see this as a shock tactic to blast through the wilful ignorance of lazy people.

Don’t worry if you didn’t get any of that. Just follow the instructions below. This is my way of doing cut-up. It’s not the only way. I encourage you to experiment, and take this in new directions. Feel free to cut-up this book and re-write it as your own, and try to sell it and profit from it if you dare. (If you’re stupid enough to pass this tripe off as your own, then good luck to you. I for one won’t be taking you to court. I wouldn’t embarrass myself).

So, back to choosing texts.

As the New Statesman review on the back of my copy of Empire of The Senseless says, ‘In this domain, everything signifies, but nothing refers’. Every novel is simultaneously a work of individual creative will, and the sum of disparate infinite threads of underlying momentum, meaning and power, many not realised by the author. In the cut-up form the author is beginning to make conscious the unconscious forces which drive literature, and thus society in general.

Exercise One: Block Form Cut-Up:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     I think we’ll start by choosing some large blocks of text. So when I wrote above, ‘This is my way of doing cut-up’, what I meant was, I’m making it up as I go along. Choose several diverse blocks of text. The idea is that you are trying to represent your idea of the modern world you live in, or even the feelings that modern society raise in you. So don’t just choose texts that you ‘like’ aesthetically or that explain the world well for you, although you could include those. The overall angle is to choose texts which are representations or significations or signs of what you perceive to be going on in the world, or of how you perceive the world to be, including your place in it. It would make sense to include material related to your own life and anything that’s been on your mind recently. The texts don’t have to make sense in a narrative way –they only have to make holistic sense to you personally, when taken together. You’ll see what I mean below. If you can choose multimedia texts, so much the better. Try including some food labels of the stuff you eat, or the stuff you definitely don’t.

The order you put the texts in will affect how the reader views them individually and holistically, as an impressionist whole. How can you best represent your impression of the world by the order in which you place the texts? Even if you don’t put them in any order consciously, your unconscious and the universal unconscious will be ordering them according to some logic of their own –so beware. (Just how conscious can we be?)

Here are my texts, some written, some visual, (and when I have the payment plan, some audio and some audio-visual). Throughout this WordPress version of the book, all sources for every portion of every chapter are at the bottom of the portion (published post) except for this first chapter. For this first chapter I’ve included the sources in the text. The published audiobook and hard visual text copy will be completely different versions, and both will be different from this WordPress version. Thanks to WordPress for allowing this to happen etc blah.

A final note before we get stuck in: The internet allows unlimited possibility for cut-up. In fact the internet is one gigantic unconscious cut-up. This is the age of unconscious cut-up. I wonder, is that why cut-up has not proliferated as a conscious art form, except in obscure pockets?

Kathy Acker, Empire of the Senseless                                                                                               ‘Someone may wonder whether in a post-industrial world a revolution can change a city’s architecture. Or anything. The streets were now the property of cars. The cars were now the property of those who had real (government) jobs. No prostitute had a car. This is why there were almost only women in the visible world. The men who worked in the corporations spent so much time in the corporations or driving to and from the corporations inside mirrored styrofoam cars, they were no longer visible. They were dead.’

https://www.ektinteractive.com/history-of-oil/:                                                                                ‘With the dawn of the 20th century, environmental concerns and new technologies led another energy source shift from coal to oil. Interestingly, although women were not yet allowed to vote, ladies’ societies in the United States were instrumental in lobbying for laws to improve air quality and reduce the dense smoke caused by burning coal.’

Walpola Rahula, What The Buddha Taught:                                                                    ‘According to the teaching of the Buddha, the idea of self is an imaginary, false belief which has no corresponding reality, and it produces harmful thoughts of ‘me’ and ‘mine’, selfish desire, craving, attachment, hatred, ill-will,conceit, pride, egoism, and other defilements, impurities and problems. It is the source of all the troubles in the world from personal conflicts to wars between nations. In short, to this false view can be traced all the evil in the world.’

Frederick Douglass, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave:      ‘Mr Severe’s place was filled by a Mr Hopkins. He was a very different man. He was less cruel, less profane, and made less noise, than Mr Severe. His course was characterised by no extraordinary demonstrations of cruelty. He whipped, but seemed to take no pleasure in it. He was called by the slaves a good overseer.’

bell hooks, We Real Cool‘Irrespective of class, status, income, or level of education, for many black men sexuality remains the place where dysfunctional behaviour first rears its ugly head. This is in part because of the convergence of racist sexist thinking about the black body, which has always projected onto the black body a hypersexuality.’

CG Jung, Synchronicity: ‘You can never say with certainty whether what appears to be going on in the collective unconscious of a single individual is not also happening in other individuals and organisms or things or situations. When, for instance, the vision arose in Swedenborg’s mind of a fire in Stockholm, there was a real fire raging there at the same time, without there being any demonstrable or even thinkable connection between the two.’

Abdullah Ocalan, Democratic Nation: ‘It takes the right of nations to self-determination from its enclosure as a bourgeois right, and includes it within the scope of societal democracy. In other words, the Kurdish question could be solved without being contaminated by statism, without gravitating towards a nation-statist pursuit and, without being forced into solutions under these categories, it could be resolved within democratic governance models of society. This is the essence of the transformation of the PKK.’

The animals die that we may live, they are substitute people, hunters in the fall killing the deer, that is Christ also. And we eat them, out of cans or otherwise; we are eaters of death, dead Christ-flesh resurrecting inside us, granting us life. Canned Spam, canned Jesus, even the plants must be Christ. / When you can’t tell the difference between your own pleasure and your pain then you’re an addict.’

Simon Fairlie, Demystifying Wheat -The Land, issue 19Over a quarter of all British households grow vegetables. Thousands of people with s scrap of land keep chickens, pigs, sheep or goats. But who grows wheat? Almost nobody except arable farmers. The business of cultivating and processing our most stable food is shrouded in mystery. A small child can grow a carrot -but the mechanics of wheat production are apparently beyond the reach of the common citizen, requiring hundreds of horsepower of machinery and arcane processing equipment.

Simon Be, via FacebookI wish XR well in its endeavours and strongly wish to see the organisation prosper according to its purpose and to grow beyond that which perpetuates the wretched oppressions which brings us here to these times. I think that XR will accomplish extraordinary things if it can find a through line between the urgency of now and listening deeply to what’s truly needed. XR is an expression of life, of rebellion and love and should not IMHO become a crutch of hope nor anything much further beyond a beacon of initiation and a call to action. May many rebellions emerge and unfold as they always have done and will continue to do so as long as free humans look upon beauties destruction and say no. I am still to face the legal consequences of my actions for the rebellion and am entwined for as long as I live in a trajectory that’s aligned, taking action on behalf of our planet and especially our wild nature which so easily gets forgotten by a culture that’s dishonest about that which gives it life. So paths may be bound in many ways but for myself that’s no longer under the identity of XR. I’ll not be discussing the reasons why here on FB but hope to get my thoughts down in writing soon as I can, I feel that’s vital and also “right”. I’ve got a zillion PM ‘s to catch up on so please be Patient in communications. Keep rebelling, keep fighting for the grace the beauty of the natural world bestows upon us, keep human in a time when leviathan is seducing us all with its machine song.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jan/22/tory-hardliners-reconsider-may-deal-amid-fears-that-brexit-could-be-blocked Tory Brexit supporters alarmed by the prospect of a delay have hinted they could be won over in the coming weeks – if Theresa May can produce a serious concession from Brussels on the Irish backstop. The numbers may not be enough for May to win support for her deal, given continued opposition from a hardcore of Brexiters who also object to the £39bn financial settlement, those with personal grudges against the prime minister and Tory remainers hoping for a second referendum. However, some Brexiter MPs or those in seats which voted leave have suggested in recent days that there is a path to win their support.

Native American activist Nathan Phillips stepped in to diffuse the situation, and a video of Phillips being stared down (center) by student Nick Sandmann (pictured in the video, and right during an interview with NBC) went viral as social media immediately accused him and his MAGA hat-clad peers of racism. When asked whether he owes anyone an apology in an NBC interview, Sandmann said: ‘As far as standing there, I had every right to do so’. He said: ‘My position is that I was not disrespectful to Mr Phillips, I’d like to talk to him’ and: ‘In hindsight, I wish we walked away and avoided the whole thing.’ Video that emerged later shows the run-up to the incident as Israel called the students ‘a bunch of f****ts made out of incest’. Israel said the Native American activists ‘were trying to stop everything’ and ‘de-escalate the situation’. ‘They actually interrupted what we was teaching,’ he added.

The Rebel Sense of Kathy ‘Sugar’ Celeste -Chapter the First, Part Six

http://www.sugarhistory.net/who-made-sugar/history-of-sugar/  History of the world is filled with culinary ingredients that had great impact on our civilizations, development of sciences, and global socio-economic status. One of the most impactful of them was sugar, high end “fine spice” of the Asia and Middle East, who was responsible not only for large changes in our diets, but also as a starting point in the development of large European trading fleers in early Renaissance and propagating of African slaves around the world between 17th and 19th century that allowed sugar to finally become bulk commodity that is used by everyone.

Smart Company: My business partner and I are in the middle of a debate and we have agreed that you will be the adjudicator. To sum it up, this is what happened. I went on a sales call with one of my staff and she drove me crazy by spending half the call talking to the client about where he ate last night (some fab new bar), his hernia operation (I saw the scar) and his Thai cooking class (I kid you not!). In fact, she is actually taking the cooking class with him so they spent at least 10 minutes discussing whether his chicken satay with basil was up to scratch. She said it was, he said it wasn’t… yadda yadda.

Public Enemy, Fight The Power: Our freedom of speech is freedom or death,
We got to fight the powers that be.

Mark Cartwright, Ancient History Encyclopaedia: Kali is the Hindu goddess (or Devi) of death, time, and doomsday and is often associated with sexuality and violence but is also considered a strong mother-figure and symbolic of motherly-love. Kali also embodies shakti – feminine energy, creativity and fertility – and is an incarnation of Parvati, wife of the great Hindu god Shiva. She is most often represented in art as a fearful fighting figure with a necklace of heads, skirt of arms, lolling tongue, and brandishing a knife dripping with blood.

Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything: Of all the big green groups that underwent pro-business makeovers in the 1980s, none attracted more acrimony or disappointment than the Environmental Defense Fund…Fred Krupp took the reins of the organisation and he was convinced that the group’s ‘sue the bastards’ motto was so out of step with the times…the EDF’s new goal became ‘creating markets for the bastards’.
