I know he's been working on it for months. Apparently it deals with the presence of absence.
it's a modern wonder of the world!
it encapsulates the isolation experienced by the office-bound bored.
like a new emo thread.
has someone responded to it?!?!
NOW YOU BASTARD!!
it was me. woo ho! and no one will ever be able to prove otherwise.
only one as clever as me could ever respond to a thread like that.
work it out for yourself.
i think you are lying.
ok, I'll make it two posts then.
look at Mr Homescik being all clever, no-one else can figure it out!
Or can they...
i just made a couple of extra posts on restlesses thread. anyone see that?
so far. come on, use yer noggin.
in your collective FACES.
I'm in there.
for 10 minutes. I'm stumped.
It's like the bestest puzzle on here ever.
And by the bestest, I mean, the only...
on the thread now.
seriously, marco, I'm suprised you haven't got this yet!
(assuming everyone else got there the same way I did? ooh, I can ask in there)
I've tried altering the URL to no avail!!
...restless boy's "White Thread" is an icon. A work meant to inaugurate a new
social-cultural order, the Revolutionary order.
restlessboy proclaimed his work as the "zero" of threads, that there was
nothing other than 'internet messageboard chat' presented, no positioning, no certain
conventional imaging. A meta thread, - more - a thread that has
no opposite in say music discussion, no discussion to its anti-discussion.
For sensible debate must deal with particulars of sorts, whereas
'not-debate' is a general relation englobing the rest of the universe.
restlessboy saw the "White Thread" as being that work that would necessarily
maintain a spiraling triad into the fourth dimension by being a
thread, by negating online discussion, by bringing DiS threads into a new context,
threads beyond threads. ...The synthesis then bears the insignia of
its origins - its memory in fact...It was a structural change in levels.
"White Thread" was to be everywhere, made by all, to be drawn on
the palm of one's hands, pasted on walls, worn on clothes, painted in
individual studios - the centre was to be everywhere and there was to
be no more circumference.
restlessboy posted a "White Thread" in the place where 'normally'
stood an icon...he positioned an incomprehensible 'object-less'
object in the place where before hung those objectifications which had
given all objects their reason to be, and the raison d'etat...
the order of the universe ...that narration.....by the re-placing of
the inane thread, by the appropriation of the holy space, the sanctioned corner
where the Face, the Family, the Ordeal hung, restlessboy appropriated
the significatory value, the syntax of the originating code of
British cultural ideology.
Restlessboy posted a "White Thread" in the centre of the world of meaning and
the word was irrational,
Noise and in Pure Contradiction
Sign. The Fullness there of.
The plenitude of a sign
is the sign as sign and not as meaning.
This is the history of resurrection, both the revolution and evolution.
Abolishing through the pure negation the lamination of signs, the merry-go-round
of language, the noose of the dead of naming.
Through the effacement of the Icon a parable about the Icon.
"And even today the notion of a structure lacking any centre represents
the unthinkable itself." Derrida
I've got an Action Man stuck up my nose
on it's place in the table?
Maybe that itself challenges our perceptions of identity...
HOW DO I REPLY. Arrrghh!
how how how???
people misunderstand how difficult it was to make the thread (which i prefer to think of as my untitled/self-titled thread).
It came from within. it's really the culmination of everything I've ever believed. I'm proud of it's installation here on DiS.
wanna do my art assessment work for me? i think you might be better at it than i.
It's horrible in there...like something out of Event Horizon.
this is worse than suduko
...such a scary place, I wouldn't recommend it.
but it it worse than the people who play Suduko?
You didn't even make it past the bouncers to the Super Exclusive Club (TM)
how do I know you're wearing silver jumpsuit!?
there is more than way of getting to it (my way being the coolest). So there's no excuse really.
sort it aaaaaaaht.
I don't care what anybody says. I'm going to find a way in.
It really isn't that difficult, honest!
I feel like I'm the leader of some secret cult.
tell us to castrate ourselves are you?
unless you want to.
And YOU WANT TO. </hypnotist voice>
my brain doesn't work properly before 6pm. I need answers dammit. ANSWERS!
I don't need anyone to tell me. I'm gonna do it for myself. Just you see.
all you have to do is xxxxxx and then you xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx and before you know it you have xxxxxxxxxxxx and everything is xxxxx
hope that helps :D
and you lied grinders
at work until I work this out. you're ruining my 'career'.
And by career I mean pointless office job... but still, IT'S THE PRINCIPLE.
I know that comment will help.
wouldn't anyone like SAUCE <<!!! with their pretzel?
I knew we shouldn't have trusted you. You're a communist, after all.
remember you can't touch the strippers!
How stupid must I be?
Good thing I'm not getting wound up by it.
but alas it doesn't work.
I posted in the invisible thread, I'm so great
a flux capacitor?
nearly combusted but it's all okay now....
Trying to fiddle with the url.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WORK!
I'm an absolute moron. I'm ashamed. But I can't. Let. Go.
Must get in.
how do you know you're outside?
how do you know?
oh. my. god. the. frustration.
i'm sure this isn't good for me
feel my former frustrations.
This thread is testament to my stupidity and I demand it's deleted.
you TELL ME HOW TO GET ONTO THE DAMN THREAD!
Then I gave up. It's like my life, in a microcosm.
I took my over an hour but I worked it out.
You should see what it's like in there. But a bit like the Matrix, I cannot explain it. You have to *see* it to understand.
there are three distinct ways to find it.
One is probably no longer possible unless you have loads of patience. One is quite clever but still a bit tedious. The third is the most commonly used one and can be done in two clicks.
I used the first one.
tried the first one, but it probably only worked just after the thread was made. I don't know how to use computers so the second one was out. I can't work out whether the third one is the one i used or not.
is wasting my afternoon dammit!
a big bundle of sex in there.
I have obtained access to the magical room of mysterious wonderment!
So what exactly do you DO in here?
I HAVEN'T GAINED ACCESS TO THE MAGIACL ROOM OF MYSTERIOUS WONDERMENT AND SO CANNOT BE TOLD WHAT YOU DO IN THERE!
That would be an ecumenical matter
that this will be a thread with 1000+ posts? none from me.
It was rubbish. I left.
It's nothing but an overgrown 2d country club in there anyway. Who needs their pretensions and stifling bourgeois airs? Think they're so clever by denying access to everybody else and nerdily sniggering into their sleeves. It's the imposition of class upon what should be classless. I'll make my own snide clever thread, and none of you are invited. So there.
I just made a thread with ' ' as the subject line to see what happened. That's it. No agenda.
Some people figured out how to view it, others didn't and we had a bit of a giggle on the thread. It wasn't a big conspiracy.
Of course you would SAY it isn't a big conspiracy, wouldn't you.
