We never pay attention to the mail.Emmy Hennings, Morphine, Zurich, 1921
Sunshine we hate, it doesn’t mean a thing
Let others join the struggle to survive
Dead to the world, dreaming on our feet
The darkness just comes down in sheets.

"For him [Hegel] philosophy is the bird of wisdom, and the bird of wisdom is the owl. But the owl takes flight only towards the end of the day. Philosophy is the discipline that comes after the day of knowledge, after the day of real-life experiments - when night falls."
- Alain Badiou ‘Philosophy for Militants’
Chris Marker ‘The Owls Legacy’
Do not ask who I am and do not ask me to remain the same: leave it to our bureaucrats and our police to see that our papers are in order. At least spare us their morality when we write.Michel Foucault
And everyone will fuck in his own social class, the dynamic junior executives will breathe with rapture the smell of their partners’ aftershave, and even the pope will no longer be able to detect anything wrong with it. A very natural thing, as a recent film said. The new official gay will not go looking for useless and dangerous adventures in the short-circuits between social classes. He will surely go on being a sexual pervert, he’ll experiment with fist-fucking or flagellation, but with the cool good sense of sexological magazines, not social violence, but in sex techniques. Pasolini was old-fashioned, the prodigious remains of an epoch that is now being left behind.Guy Hocquenghem, ‘We all can’t die in bed’.
