today i saw the word POSTMODERNISM like 5 times so i thought about something
i like the books POSTMODERNISM: THE LOGIC OF LATE CAPITALISM and also THE POSTMODERN CONDITION: A REPORT ON KNOWLEDGE. i think that after reading those two books i actually knew what postmodernism meant, not just like: “oh there’s a giraffe eating fritos and watching himself on television” type of postmodernism. frederick jameson wrote the first book and jean francois lyotard wrote the other. they both explain the idea in terms that apply to production and technology and to me that makes them applicable. i think before, when someone said “postmodernism,” i thought, “oh there must be a giraffe eating fritos and watching himself on television in that story.” but no, sadly, i think there doesn’t need to be a giraffe eating fritos watching itself on television for it to be postmodern. after reading the books previously mentioned, i threw away my manuscript: THE POSTMODERN GIRAFFE EATING FRITOS AND SHIT. i really liked the two books i mentioned above. i have read them both twice and it was like being at a playground sitting in the sandbox in that it was relaxing and at a certain point my legs were covered in spiders. i will probably read these books again. i am glad you have read this. if you are not busy, and um, you wouldn’t mind reading these two books, um, that would be nice. i am sorry if this post was boring, i think there might be some arguing going on somewhere on this site. enjoy!
