Kate Bush’s Before the Dawn

Kate Bush, 2014

Kate Bush, 2014

2,447 words

Outside London’s Eventim Apollo the sign reads: “The KT Fellowship Presents: Before the Dawn: Sold Out” There is no mention of the name Kate Bush, but it fools nobody because news of her return to live performance has been so high profile and has often spilled over into hysteria. The conceit of anonymity is only part of the story. Before she had released a record, Bush played a series of gigs at various London pubs as part of the KT Bush band. The KT Fellowship sounds like a nostalgic throwback to such carefree times before she had even thought of the Tour of Life.  Read more …

On the Sublime & the Numinous

Caspar_David_Friedrich_0714,193 words

The words “sublime” and “numinous” have shifted in meaning somewhat over recent years. The word “sublime,” I presume, would now generally be interpreted to mean something of particularly great beauty, or an action particularly well executed. It would not be limited to a narrow usage but could be applied to any thing or action of particular excellence, perhaps with a slightly pretentious connotation of elegance.  Read more …

The Immortal Death of Mishima

Grave_of_Yukio_Mishima

Mishima’s grave, Tama Cemetery in Fuchu, Tokyo

5,511 words

When Yukio Mishima arose on the morning of November 25th, 1970 he knew that it would be his last day on Earth. It was the deadline for completion of his novel, The Decay of the Angel, the fourth book in his tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. He placed the completed manuscript, sealed in an envelope addressed to his publisher, on a table. Mishima had given intimations that the completion of the tetralogy would be the culmination of his life’s work. Read more …

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

apes11,237 words

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the second movie in the rebooted Planet of the Apes series, establishes this as a superior franchise inviting comparisons with Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

The movie begins exactly where Rise of the Planet of the Apes left off, with a tracker plotting flights around the globe showing the spread of “simian flu.” Read more …

The Presence of the Past:
From Ancestor Worship to Hauntology

William Blake, "Hamlet and his Father's Ghost"

William Blake, “Hamlet and his Father’s Ghost”

5,903 words

We never manage to bury the dead completely. Their words still echo down to us from beyond life’s event horizon in direct contravention of physical law. Our stance towards death is a determining factor in how the dead return to us; in what form and with what significance they haunt the living. Although they are always there, the ways in which they interact with us vary and shift through time. And, at the present time, there is a strange blend of residual religious funerary rites and atheistic materialism. It feels very much as though we go through the motions of dispatching the dead to the next world without believing a word of it. Read more …

God Has Become Cancer:
Damien Hirst, Religion, & Death

Damien Hirst

Jonathan Yeo, Portrait of Damien Hirst, 2013

3,374 words

For the radical Right the issue of contemporary art is something of a non-starter. The past century or so of developments in the fine arts have been dominated by American (and often Jewish) theoreticians who have fashioned a sensibility wherein anything that smacks of European tradition is automatically verboten, unless it can be refracted through a distorting lens of ironic detachment or disinheritance.  Read more …

Posthuman Prospects:
Artificial Intelligence, Fifth Generation Warfare, & Archeofuturism

Giorgio de Chirico, "Les Masques"

Giorgio de Chirico, “Les Masques”

4,851 words

The speed of technological development can be dizzying, and it has become natural for us to expect a never-ending stream of faster, more powerful devices. The future development of such technologies promises increasingly sophisticated machines that will challenge the very notion of man’s supremacy. The dystopian future of intelligent machines endowed with astonishing capabilities, whose very existence might cause them to supersede humanity, is being enthusiastically pursued.

Transcendence

transcendence-johnny-depp-poster1,019 words

Transcendence marks the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer. Nolan is also the executive producer so the expectation is that this sci-fi project could aspire to the heights reached by Nolan’s Inception. Sadly, it fails to live up to the comparison.

Johnny Depp stars as Dr. Will Caster, a leading researcher in artificial intelligence (AI). His work is opposed by a terrorist group known as RIFT (Revolutionary Independence From Technology) Read more …
