Facebook’s new Timeline demonstrates what the internet is becoming: a constant flow of information. But instead of looking at the internet in a linearly chronological sense, let’s think about other ways to approach it. If you really wanted to Facebook stalk someone, you would spend the first few minutes on their page admiring their most… Continue reading How the New Facebook Timeline Represents Post Postmodernism

Self-Consciousness vs. Acting Natural: A Post Postmodern Dillemma

 Then we started to drive up the 101. This was like Italy, and the high cliffs and deep blue ocean and the sun glittering off it and into her eyes made me understand that now after all those years of wanting love, I had it. “This is incredible.” We both knew what I meant, how… Continue reading Self-Consciousness vs. Acting Natural: A Post Postmodern Dillemma

City Petrichor, Big Sur, and Moral Relativism in Post Postmodernism

>David Copperfield is So Post Postmodern

> Young Charles Dickens  So I’m reading David Copperfield, which makes Great Expectations look like chicken feet. Dickens employs certain techniques that are very far ahead of his time, such as switching from the past tense to the present for a rush of immediacy. Take this sentence from chapter XVIII, “A Retrospect:” “I think continually… Continue reading >David Copperfield is So Post Postmodern
