In the age of formulaic demographic-pandering, nobody really wants to take a chance on a genuine eccentric. Eccentricity is "not-normal" and normal sells to normal people. Social media presence is almost obligatory these days, and an eccentric is essentially a loose cannon for an industry obsessed with image and outreach, as if they could save their failing medium by just putting forth the correct image and publishing the correct people who can be trusted to hop on Twitter with regularity to comment blandly and positively on some hot-button issue with tons of opportunity for exposure. All of this is a streamlining process by which they facilitate most easily their preferred lifestyle of sitting back as the business prints money for them.

I‘m writing my diary desu right now, have been for a while, but it’s pretty difficult so it‘ll probably never release.
People hate eccentricity and even someone like Murakami is seen was pretty radical; you feel that with every paragraph you write: why am I even doing this?
They‘re kind of all letters, and letters and speeches and poetry, or fake history snd philosophy, are the best ways for me to write, but no one really wants to read that. Especially when it’s from today and not some old, secret tomb written by a blind scholar on the other side of the world, or some eye patched nomad.

Hate to burst your bubble fellow schizo, but consider the following factors:
>zero tolerance school policies
>pharmaceuticals fed to children to treat boredom and sadness
>lack of physical activity
>low testosterone
>mimetic behavioral stimulus
>financial poverty leading to low agency and limited responsibility

All of this adds up to the most docile and homogenous generation to ever grace the planet. The real pacifier is not the early childhood conditioning factors, but the voluntary consumption of other people's fabricated lives in 30s doses. Vicarious addiction goes hand in hand with financial hopelessness. Your generation literally cannot afford to actualize and exercise agency so you cope by living through icons who have zero substance and merely appear as the image of your unobtainable desires. Tik tok stars are propaganda posters come to life.

The "dark age" is purely a result of the image triumphing over the idea. Once technology progressed that the image could be spread as quickly as an idea it was all downhill. The internet is just the latest piece of technology to facilitate the spread of image and even worse video.

There's no golden age at the end of this phenomenon, you vastly underestimate the broad appeal of the image. An image obsessed culture is not capable of an attention span long enough to produce any artistic work of meaningful quality. It just infinitely shits out propaganda depth copies of its ideas. You best start believing that the memes have come to life, son, because that's all that will ever exist in your lifetime.

You're underestimating the power of a generational gap. Boomers recoiled so hard against their WWII-era parents that we got the hippy movement. You will always have an element of people who want to define themselves against the conventional. My generation recoiled so hard against the free love liberals that we horrified them by signing up in droves to fight pointless wars in the middle east, because as children of those movements we were in the best place to see all its flaws without a rosy tint. The social media zoomer generation might not be the one that recoiled, since social media is essentially brand new in the scope of our development as a species. But their children might grow to hate it, or their children's children. Nothing is lost for good. If you disagree with the way things are, do your best to be the change you want. Speak your mind as often as you can. Know that even if nobody replies or seems to care, that people are reading and they are listening, and you are performing a valuable societal function by providing a rational, healthy alternative to the people capable of listening.

Naturally, I'm completely seen a a pariah, to be someone so liberated from the wagie-cagie mindset and lifestyle... there was a ton of fun, drugs, personal growth, women, and societal infiltration I did...

Then I finished my 1st book in 2013 that predicted the social fallout from the hedonistic nihilism washing over our culture. In 2021, no DOUBT it has come true.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rmvc0H70z74

Vancouver in particular does not produce any of its own culture... we are under the boot of globohomo because, as explained, people have had the adventure, testosterone, and agency beaten out of them over several generations.

My own father is the most extreme beta-male, he would never question the CBC and is a die-hard liberal voter. His real estate keeps going up, up, up!

>>18537520
I think you're right about the generation but you're generalizing and your take is kind of reductive. You also need to consider that:

>High art has always only been produced by a small amount of people and the masses are always doomed to consume trash.
>The people who produce great art rarely conform to the norm, a significant amount of intelligent people and capable artists will be able to see the negative effect social media has on the masses and break away from it and consume older media, and possibly even form communities online.
>Great art is often not appreciated in the lifetime of the artist, the artwork has to stand the test of time.

The problem as I see it s rather that there is so much noise on information-sharing platforms. An artist has to build a following on social media to even have the chance of someone discovering their artwork.

For there to be a golden age a movement producing good art with a high standard has to become popular enough for talented people to discover it. I think talented people will be starved for good art in this age and that such a movement is plausible.

Initially 6 pages very carefully before I got totally disgusted and sniffed you out as a graphomaniac. I had no idea that you were a pathological liar yet. I just skimmed another 15 pages and it fucking gets even worse, so congrats, another pathological liar got me. I never should give you fucks the benefit of doubt. You don't deserve it.

You can't hide in written text. The shallowness of your fabrications shines through. You obviously have the gift of fabricating a million fantasies that are all an inch deep. That works for social situations because intrigue is limited and others are self absorbed. That doesn't cut it for novel writing.

you are posting your shit on a literature board and your writing is bad. fucking unreadable, blud. me finishing the first act is not going to change that. you flaunting this self-perceived secret schizo genius persona or whatever has zero to do with the quality of the sad document under review. sampling pages all over i can see that this unbearable style of yours – the airball cliches, the embarrassing onomatopoeia, the dogshit dialogue – persists. not even high school freshmen turn in slop like this

i suggest you get into some serious sentence-by-sentence analysis before going over this pile of trash again. rip it up and start over. and cut redditisms like "ginormous" if you want more than a cursory glance and a wee chuckle from anyone even remotely literary minded. at least pretend that you're standing on the shoulders of giants here

or turn it into a screenplay. because it clearly is one, screaming to burst free from this 'novel' it finds itself grafted onto. penned by a sorry cunt who just had his first bong rip during a boondock saints showing

Most of what you see has been categorically standardized BECAUSE of the maniacs and drunkard chads. It's not their fault, but a lot of those people during the 40s-late 60s actually started to pose serious problems to the power structure because of their cultural influence. Fuck, Thompson almost got elected as the mayor of the town he lived in.

That's not saying that these past people were so edgy and dangerous, it's just that back then, there was less of a handle on what people decided to follow, so any artist that began to emerge as a cultural force was actually something to be reckoned with, rather than someone who could just be bought off, or was already owned.

I have seen literally no evidence of anything at all that would suggest you have any capacity significantly above the norm except for your willingness to promote yourself. Your writing is bland and featureless, and it will literally never improve because you want to blame everything but your writing itself. You whine about how you can't get published because you're a white male who has opinions, but the real reason is because you are a poor writer with an ego. This is deeply objectionable in and of itself for anyone who genuinely cares about writing, since it shows your "confidence" – which seems to me to border more on something like narcissism – precludes you EVER actually improving in the way someone who'd take a chance on you would like to see.

This whole narcissistic shtick works well in real life, where you can use things like charisma and pressure to make people more likely to buy into whatever it is you happen to be selling at that moment. It's ironic that you've chosen to try to translate this approach, which probably works for you in person, into the literal one single avenue where it has no chance. When you write, you need to write well. There are marginal cases where people get lucky, sure, but if you want to write well you actually need to write well.

You don't write well, and you probably never will.

Why would I do that? Even if I didn't think your narcissism is incredibly obnoxious, I didn't like the prose. It felt amateurish, like an F. Gardner "book".

Nobody wants to do this because your writing is dull. Its not a bad book, but its not a very good one either. Why should anyone read hundreds of pages of mediocre prose just to feed your narcissistic ego?

Judging from your total inability to take the constructive criticism offered to you, the story itself is probably lame too.

Tarantino is the best example I can think of of this trend in how his movies are 100% aesthetics and pretty much zero ideas. Porn is another big thing that I think connects to this somehow.

Why are you so fixated on trannies? Nobody here is a transvestite. You're the one who did gay porn for years, not us. And most of the criticism in this thread is actually good advice. I personally thought your writing was amateurish but probably would have bought a copy just to support you until I saw this shitshow of a thread.

But lets take a direct example from your book. Second page, because I don't have time to wade through that much crap.
>"Creme, sugar?"
>Suzanne had walked up with a tray of coffees and put one down for Ken.
>"Aw, thanks, that's so kind," Ken remarked with a big smile and taking a couple of creams and one sugar.
>"You wouldn't believe what I had to do to get these, okay- first- the interact machine was down, so I had to take out cash, which- naturally- there was a lineup. This is after I had to step over a guy passed out on the sidewalk. Then, when I was in the lineup, there was a save-the-old-growth march that went by- everyone yelling, waving signs- the baristas stopped for ten minutes to watch. Okay, so- I order the coffees, pay, leave- it's been like thirty minutes for my break. I walk outside, and there's this lineup of shiny pickup trucks and guys leaning out windows, horns honking- I turn my back for a second and a huge train horn gets blown and- I drop my frap!"
>"Coffee down!" Ken says, taking a sip of the rich and perfectly hipster coffee. Even the cardboard ring around the hot cup had an exquisite texture, like a well-worn rug.
>"-so then, I wait in line and get my frap- I finally get out of there and get back to my desk- no caramel."
>"No caramel?" Ken raises his eyebrow and smiles.
>"Stop messing with me, Ken, you know it's Friday, it's my routine- I need it to work in this shithole- I can't believe I still have to come in at all!"
Its like you went and wrote down an actual conversation you had with your girlfriend. Great literature isn't supposed to capture reality in all its monotonous details, it presents a story. Ken raising an eyebrow flirtatiously at Suzanne means absolutely jack shit to the reader because we don't know who Ken is, we don't know who Suzanne is, and most importantly of all we don't give a flying fuck about either of them. Does this dialogue tell us anything about these characters? No, its just a rambling paragraph about how Suzanne dropped her coffee because a horn honked. Like you're a teenage girl rambling about her day. Does this dialogue advance the story then? Unless "perfectly hipster coffee" is a set up for a major plot point I doubt it. So why did you include this at all? Ken saying "Coffee down!" isn't endearing, it isn't thought provoking, it doesn't move anyone emotionally. It seems like you just wrote down a conversation you had with your girlfriend and for some reason assume we care.
And the whole book is like this. Long, rambling, amateurish back and forths between characters we don't care about. You're writing a book, not a diary, so try to justify the content.

Honestly I think a lot of it has to do with the continuing postmodern cheapening of the human experience. With the advent and following ubiquity of modern psychology, we have killed the mystery of the human condition. Psychology has facilitated this kind of faux-objective stratification of the human mind, where we now feel almost unconditionally justified in attributing to certain people normalcy and to others psychological aberration. "Oh he's just mentally ill" and statements like it have had a deleterious effect on the perception of the human experience. Where madness could prior have been seen as potentially a cost-benefit analysis with downsides and upsides, modern scientific psychology now sees things overwhelmingly from a pathological standpoint, with the overarching goal being to allow a human being to fulfill a role in an ill society. Even if the pills kill your dramatic mania or quell the voices in your head to the point where you can hold down a 9 to 5, it also kills the creativity which is part and parcel to many, many of the greatest artists throughout human history. It's important to remember that in the scope of our evolution as a species, the idea that you can take a pill to make things better is very new. It has literally just started happening.

Your analysis is somehow right, but perhaps already outdated. Liberalisation and Foucaultism actually led to a new situation in which less conditions are seen as illnesses.

It doesn't take any money to self actualise, I'm reminded of the recovering alcoholic from Infinite Jest who spent his time luring cats into doubled garbage bags, tieing up the end of the bag then watching as the cat suffocated.

Don't get me wrong, there exist a number of people who genuinely just want to be able to function. The fact of the matter is that within the scope of our society and if we take its mores and structures as moral bedrock, anything that gets in the way of your societal "contribution" can justifiably be seen as an illness or aberration. My problem with modern psychology is less the methodologies than it is how it stops at this social utility and uses it as an objective bedrock for its pathological diagnoses. If you take a step upwards or "outwards" on a meta level, it starts to become obvious that this isn't actually objective at all and subsumes entirely its pathology under the grand social rubric, as if the rubric itself isn't at least as much a problem as the individual. The more I think about this stuff the more radical I start to become, but I don't think it's a stretch to see this dynamic as a symptom of overcapitalization across way too many applications. If you can't work you can't generate currency, which means you can't house yourself or feed yourself. You can't survive. And it's not even your fault since the world you were born into didn't prepare you to develop those skills by virtue of your upbringing. This is the standard to which modern psychology is beholden, and a lot of the time it doesn't even seem to be aware of its position as an insidious arbiter of the system which is actually making its patients iI'll.

The whole thing just leaves a rotten taste in my mouth. Now, in defense of modern psychology we are just now starting to entertain this idea of neurodiversity, by which large amounts of people currently pathologized by a litany of abstract labels and disorders could be seen as within the normal range of human variance. All of this in the hope that by eroding the faux-objective bedrock, which I talked about earlier, there could be a trickling down to the layperson a broadened standard for normalcy which would then hopefully radiate outwards. I'm pessimistic since there are many highly qualified psychologists against the idea even before you get to the general public, but here's hoping. We'll just have to see how it all pans out.

>totally out-of-touch with their creative sides
The issue is that your creative side isn't even that good. Your writing is subpar at best, and while it would be acceptable for an amateur who's still honing his craft you have none of the humility necessary to actually improve.

I write, translate, publish, paint, I've lived on several continents, can hold a conversation in half a dozen languages, watched people die, have gotten arrested, trafficked drugs internationally, once beat up a whore, have written copy-pastas which have touched the hearts of dozens of anons, blah blah blah. None of that means shit and I mostly keep it to myself because the point of an anonymous forum is that it isn't about you and your ego, its about having actual discussions stripped of all that superficial crap. It doesn't matter what kind of car you drive or how much money you made selling porn on the internet, your book is still poorly written and will always be poorly written unless you actually take the time to exam your work with a critical eye and ask yourself why it sucks so bad and how you could improve it.

And for the record the best people I've ever met, and I've traveled all around the world and known all types of people, have been the ones who marry young, never leave their home town, and don't compare themselves to other people. The next best people are the ones who find a career and excel at it. The worst people are burned out junkies who think drugs and sex are a proxy for having a personality.
