Sweet merciful crap. It's a sort of journalistic pseudo-intellectual Buzzword Bingo up in there, isn't it?

It's amazing. That first quoted paragraph is extraordinary in itself - metaphor soup has never looked so primordial.

And by "paragraph" you mean "single convoluted, idiotic, run-on sentence"? *wry grin*
Jul. 11th, 2011 08:22 pm (UTC)
Yes. That too. Yikes.

That's all he ever does, no?

Oh Will what the jibbly fuck are you talking about.

No idea, although I have to give him some kind of perverse kudos for being the first person to use the word 'interregnum' without describing the period from 1649 to 1660.

Oh, dear, someone get onto his dealer and tell him whatever he's cutting it with, can they please change it.

I thought he'd been clean for some time, actually. Replaced heroin and coke with one hell of a Rogets' habit.

I preferred him when he was high. At least that way there was a chance he'd OD on live TV or something.

What the copulation?!

How did I know that was going to be Will Fvcking Self before I clicked the link?

...worryingly, I think I might be his target audience, as I don't really see what is wrong with those paragraphs and was smiling and nodding along, not knowing that the hive mind was against them...

Argh, words...!

LOL, that kind of thing is exciting if you were studying Crit. Theory or English Lit. about eight years ago.

"These developments are the ructions in the informational crust resulting from the underlying tectonic shifts; and it is nowise unexpected that on this delusory levelled media playing field the following equation follows: if anyone can be a celebrity then anyone can be exposed."

That there is my nomination for most inelegant sentence of the year.

On the other hand, as Jon Steward said, I feel better about America now, thanks!

Old Media good; New Media bad.
Old Media good; New Media bad.
Old Media good; New Media bad.

Say it often enough and it's almost believable.
