Fuck Yeah! Jean Baudrillard!

Smile and others will smile back. Smile to show how transparent, how candid you are. Smile if you have nothing to say. Most of all, do not hide the fact you have nothing to say nor your total indifference to others. Let this emptiness, this profound indifference shine out spontaneously in your smile.

—Jean Baurdillard (via danika-kimberly)


I’m assuming this is a debaters sight, and today we hit a team who ran this or should I say  sang this.

This is in fact a debater and I do in fact read this along with a rap version, so it doesn’t really surprise me.

I love Baudrillard’s work and concepts. I can’t help but reflect on Tumblr’s hyperreality and the identities people ‘create’ from external media, photoshopped synthetic images, soundbite quotes from other people and the group-thought of reblogging: ultimately creating an artificial ‘self expression’.
(anyways, I’ll get back to posting cute cat memes…. (:  )
