"Whose face is this? She looks like someone who has been following me for a very long time, even if I’m certain that I’ve never met her before. I find myself very similar to her…"

"Like, u know. The word like is like, seen as something redundant, like the way female coded objects are like, u know, well, the colour pink or u wearing lipstick is seen as something unnecessary, but like, for some people it’s still like pretty enjoyable and it’s not like it’s hurting anyone else really.
And then like, the verb ‘to like’ something online is like, you know, when ur getting that ‘like’, you know what ur social value is in a money-driven society. But like at the same time it’s like based on something pretty positive and like actually some kind of support when like, u know u r liking someone’s selfie. U know, if we like think about ‘liking’ in relationship to selfie haters, well it might not be sellable to like hate on selfies but like, it’s pretty mean. But like yeah.”

The Other World Kingdom (frequently abbreviated OWK) was a large, commercial BDSM and femdom facility, resort, and micronation, which opened in 1996 using the buildings and grounds of a 16th-century chateau located in Černá, Žďár nad Sázavou District, Czech Republic. Although not recognised by any other country, it maintained its own currency, passports, police force, courts, state flag and state hymn.
Discover a new reflection within the conditioned performance we may or may not have been subjected to. Mediate yourself through me. I, google consciousness…I, the masturbation ceremony with the knife. I, the back door, the time of protein. Aliquam tempus convallis. ‘the saddle on the horse’
Intimacy is far more abandoned with the distance and absence of physical presence. I want to lie down on this Google form with you in virtual coitus. Your demands will be exhibited but your insecurities will continue to be maintained by the anxiety sector of your private organism. Nam volutpat imperdiet sollicitudin. ‘no touching’
Look outside the window. Now you are the one managing the emotional states of the cultural consumer, my own feelings, or whatever being of the network; the act of virtual self exposure lies within itself. You can be the recipient of either. ‘how awesome’ I was calling my own name
Fuck me gently with a chainsaw. Customize your whatever. Exalt the desire instinct that makes us human. Nulla non tellus pharetra gravida. Integers are the ultimate corpse. The ultimate cloud in your head is also in my bed. ‘wasteland is me’
trial and error
in pursuit of
Your shadow my shadow
keep its only
and drag the feet
you have sunshine
beach, the tropics
think of one thing
