Мессиан. Святой Франциск Ассизский. Впечатления от...
Буквально только пару минут назад закончил смотреть замечательную постановку оперы Мессиана “Святой Франциск Ассизский”, единственной оперы Мессиана. Хочу поделиться своими впечатлениями. Но для начала скажу, что с оперой знаком, слушал неоднократно, но как-то не особо доводилось ознакомиться с либретто. Опера всегда мне казалась однообразной и скучной, и хотя я ее слушал...
Фатальные стратегии. Ожирение. Бодрийяр.
В своем эссе “Uber den Begriff der Ekstasis als Metastasis” (“О концепции экстаза как метастаза”) Франц фон Баадер рассматривает метастаз, который он приравнивает к экстазу, как антиципацию смерти, выход за пределы собственного конца в рамках самой жизни. И, конечно, это есть и в ожирении, когда кажется, будто еще живое тело поглотило свой собственный труп, что создает слишком...
Смерть и хипстеры: к опыту переживания...
Тезисы: Бытие-к-смерти: осознания своей конечности и смерти как итога. Перенесение смерти в жизнь для того, чтобы обогатить жизнь Игра в смерть. Заигрывание со смертью. Отрицание реальности смерти и замена ее символическим планом В контексте данной дискуссия я предлагаю рассмотреть именно символический план и обсудить то, как символическая смерть укоренена в нашей жизни. В качестве примера...
Путешествие по тексту
В очередной раз убеждаюсь, что теоретические установки реальнее практики. Сознание определяет бытие, так сказать, хотя многоуровневость и многоплановость Бытия известна. Привлекаю массовые высказывания, вырывая их из контекста и убивая. Все мы включены в большое количество контекстов. В этих контекстах наша личность в какой-то степени остается - если мы не чрезмерно рефлексируем над теорией...
After mindless morning I decided to have a walk but without predetermined direction. “Let’s try to move into everyday direction and see what will happen” And at one point of time I looked into my phone, at foursquare feed and found that one of my ‘friends’ is in a very interesting place. So I decided to visit it. And now I am here, have already finished my food and...
Yet another text
Watching and screeming - silently - isn’t it great, huh? Nothing special, nothing worth paying attention. Total operationalization. Looking into oneself. Waiting for changes. Nothing happens. Everything around is bright and pale, drunk and sober. Nothing special again. Who the hell is talking about meaning. We invented it and decided conventionally that it is a real meaning.
Almost summer time
When you ask me what the criteria of attractiveness I answer I don’t know. Slim? Sometimes but not all the time. Smart? For a long run maybe. The whole point of subjective attractiveness is that it should resemble strong symbols. Eyes of perfectly fucked young lady. Face of girl you missed. A movement you love to watch. Do you love me, honey? I love some traits melted into one big pot. And...
Apathy, God damn apathy
The constellation of devices I have only makes me more unfocused. The whole point of buying a tablet was the ability to work on my dissertation and related topics outside home. But now I just play Angry birds, GTA and other games, regularly update Vkontakte and other shitty websites. An attempt to compensate absence of message by means of medium has failed. But it has brought another not very...
I was thinking about the great times of written-instantaneous reflection I had with Tumblr. Among all social media sites it is the best one. And I could write anything I want, and I wanted to write. Ascetic and abundant. I love photos appearing there. And because no one knows about this blog (who cares?) I love it even more. I remember that I used to post here from my phone - great time! -...
Totality of reflection
Once a friend of mine said that before saying something he recreated the whole world in his head. That is a total reflection as I see it. With this in mind any movement is restricted, before doing something you think about enormous amount of time and spend a lot of your emotional resources. So the world outside has been transforming into something boring and less intriguing. If your reflection is...
Reflection not worth mentioning
Do I believe in knowledge? I do. But the criteria of knowledge are sometimes misinterpreted when you’re trying to define it. For example, now I reading a very useful and insightful book on marketing named “Total relationship marketing” by Gummerson. This book is about different level of relationship emerged between companies. customers, organisations and inside them. But as a...
Российская Futubra угрожает тебе монументальной функцией постинга “мне скучно”. А также тем, что можно поделиться мероприятием. Да, это жизненно важная функция микроблога/блога/футублога! Но честно, интерфейс не внушил доверия и не расположил к тому, чтобы продолжить туда писать.
A week ago I decided to write down something everyday - in English, in Russian, nevermind! - for betterment of my writing skills and fixating what I was thinking about. The intention was good, the implementation sucks. Some quick thoughts about Lady Gaga, media violence over sense and purpose, and that’s all! The problem isn’t that I have nothing to say (to write down)....
Back to social media marketing
The topic of my dissertation is ‘Marketing communications via social media the critical perspectives of modern marketing theory’. In this thesis the following issues will be covered: 1) How the new technologoes and the way we communicate in digital space with peers and brands affect our consumption and comsumer behaviour 2) Where is the place of emerging social media (or speaking more broadly –...
About three months ago I wrote an essay on the theory of interactive marketing topic (including beloved social media marketing), where I tried to explore the main directions of scholar researches. But after unpleasent experience with HSE’s postgraduate school, when I was told that all this was irrelevant to management topic, I have tried to refocus on something a little bit practical....
When I want to write about something, and there are a lot of thoughts I have during the day, I feel that I’m incapable of doing that. Yeah, I was thinking about well-being and consumption, how they are related (obviously!) and how they are both affecting me. There was a thought about friendship (one of my friends doesn’t think it worth talking to me). And the feeling of time compression has come...
It looks like a mental blockage. At one point comes a clear understanding of what I (or someone else) am supposed to know. And I am talking about trivial and at the same time very important skills. They are the basis of professionalism. On the other side, facing with relevant articles, interviews, opinions and so on, you realize that at that point of comparison (of what has been said) you are...
From parasocial relationship towards narcissistic...
The world where TV was a dominated medium via which the ‘valuable’ ideas were acquainted has continually been disappearing. The parasocial relationship that take place when someone decided that ‘this guy on TV is my buddy (or expert who can help me to solve my problems, whatever)’ is now replacing by something that in 1984 Lyotard named ‘metanarrative...
You're better to check-in
Before eating, children, it’d be better to check-in at a the spot you want to eat. Then and only then the food can be consumed. Really, really? Is there a need to care what I Wright here. According to some brief and vague estimates none of my friends will read this and who follows me on Twitter too busy to read this. Only when someone will decide to read what I wrote here and there - and I...
Alms: the good, the bad, the ugly
Many of us used to perceive a alms phenomenon as something presumably good and moral one. ‘To help poor people’ is considered as one of the basic principles of global religions. Having in mind that it was quite unexpected for me to read from A. Sviyash that poor people (poor in a broad sends) deserve to be poor. They are punished for something (perhaps the stuff they did in their...
