Bear's Postmodern Academic Journal Article (Hint: Look Anyway)

Awesome publicity photo of Jack Dreeda or something like that.


The Bear does not want everyone to think he is just a buffoon. Here is a scholarly article he wrote on language and sexual identity and stuff.

Not really, but you might get a kick out of it. Especially if you are an Umberto Eco fan and recognize the name Derrida. (Be sure to note that in the comments, so we can all be impressed!) This is from the famous post modern essay generator. It is utter gibberish made up of jargon, and fake scholarly quotes by real figures - in other words, it is indistinguishable from real articles of this nature. In fact, one was submitted to a journal, and got published.

Yep. Editors of a journal could not tell the difference and published it for real.

No worries. The Bear does not write literature. He writes crowd-pleasing yarns with smokin' women and smokin' guns, using simple words and as many familiar tropes as he can cram into 160,000-ish words. Subplots? Confusing to the reader. Character arcs? Who cares? You want plot, I got your plot. Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. In chapter two people start dropping. 46 chapters later, they're still dropping.

Oh. It's a Catholic psychological thriller. Because the characters think sometimes. ("Man, she's smokin'," thought Bill as he killed another bad guy with his .48 pistol with poison bullets.)

Isn't that right, beta readers. Hello?


Batailleist `powerful communication’, cultural subcapitalist theory and
libertarianism

The bear

DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS, AMHERST


1. Expressions of defining characteristic

The main theme of Cameron’s[1] essay on Batailleist
`powerful communication’ is not theory as such, but posttheory. In a sense, von
Ludwig[2] implies that we have to choose between
deconstructive appropriation and textual precultural theory. 
Any number of narratives concerning Batailleist `powerful communication’
exist. Thus, the primary theme of the works of Tarantino is the difference
between society and sexual identity. 
The subject is interpolated into a deconstructive appropriation that
includes language as a reality. In a sense, Debord suggests the use of
Batailleist `powerful communication’ to challenge sexism. 

2. Tarantino and the textual paradigm of expression

“Society is dead,” says Derrida. Many theories concerning not, in fact,
narrative, but subnarrative may be discovered. It could be said that
Baudrillard’s critique of Batailleist `powerful communication’ holds that
sexual identity, perhaps surprisingly, has objective value, given that the
premise of neomodernist objectivism is valid. 
“Class is part of the genre of truth,” says Lyotard; however, according to
Pickett[3] , it is not so much class that is part of the
genre of truth, but rather the stasis, and some would say the paradigm, of
class. The main theme of von Ludwig’s[4] essay on
Batailleist `powerful communication’ is the role of the writer as observer.
However, if the precapitalist paradigm of narrative holds, the works of Stone
are reminiscent of Koons. 
The characteristic theme of the works of Stone is the bridge between society
and class. Debord promotes the use of dialectic construction to analyse and
attack sexuality. But Sartre’s model of the postcultural paradigm of reality
suggests that consciousness is capable of significance. 
“Sexual identity is unattainable,” says Derrida. The subject is
contextualised into a deconstructive appropriation that includes narrativity as
a whole. However, Foucault suggests the use of dialectic construction to
deconstruct class divisions. 
Tilton[5] states that we have to choose between
constructive structuralism and postdialectic nihilism. Therefore, the subject
is interpolated into a Batailleist `powerful communication’ that includes truth
as a reality. 
An abundance of discourses concerning textual theory exist. But in
Natural Born Killers, Stone affirms dialectic construction; in Heaven
and Earth
, although, he denies deconstructive appropriation. 
Bataille promotes the use of Batailleist `powerful communication’ to analyse
society. Thus, many deappropriations concerning not materialism, but
prematerialism may be found. 
If dialectic construction holds, the works of Stone are modernistic. But
Foucault suggests the use of Batailleist `powerful communication’ to challenge
hierarchy. 
Any number of discourses concerning dialectic construction exist. However,
the main theme of Hamburger’s[6] critique of subcapitalist
semanticist theory is a mythopoetical whole. 



Comments

  1. OK, admit it.
    You're just mad you only got one comment on the Titanic post, and so you're punishing us with this auto-generated text.

    Bear Punishment. It explains everything. You warned us in the London Has Fallen post (a thinly veiled apocalyptic message) about commenting on the Titanic post. Then follow up with an oblique Green Acres post about the obliviousness of the woodland to the displeasure of Bear. Then POW! Bear Punishment.

    We must all do reparation before it gets worse!

  2. Well, the Bear occasionally indulges himself by writing his memoirs. Not often. Memoirs are classically self-published because no one wants to read what some nobody did fifty years ago. He gets that.

    But, yeah, the lack of response hurt the Bear's feelings. Bears are very sensitive creatures. He has no idea how he is going to handle any real criticism of his David Lynch treatment of It's a Wonderful Life.

    When you set out with the goal to subvert the most beloved trope of all - the Christmas Miracle - and set up readers to have their every expectation defeated by an anti-sentimentalist agenda and brutal realism where choices have consequences... well, some people probably aren't going to like it

    You see, the Bear thinks that a movie involving suicide that ends with a giddy Christmas romp through Bedford Falls is grotesque.

    But the Bear is not punishing anyone. The po mo article generator is pretty fun, and you can go play with it yourself. It is a wonderful way to deflate academic pretensions.

    1. It's a Wonderful Life is really an Easter movie.

      Just a thought.

  3. Yes, every group, academic or not, has its own jargon.

    I'm puzzled, though, when I read a document like "Love of Lust," (can't spell Francis' Exhortation and too lazy to look it up) promulgated by Pope Francis for the whole world to read and understand, and find it full of incomprehensible 'Vatican-speak.'

  4. Jorge is not writing for Catholics. He doesn't care about us. Like every other Godless liberal, everything he does is PR, buffing his tolerance cred. In short, a budgie pecking at a mirror. Real encyclicals are short, and easy to read. Good thing got a spare Pope.

    1. Sorry; the spare pope turned out to be a disappointment. I'm ready to move on.

    2. Fisheaters has a terrific John Paul II quote generator. Totally convincing.

    1. Focault's Pendulum for Dummies? Oh, yeah. I am finally pumped. I cannot wait to turn this epic exercise in subverting beloved tropes and defeating expectations loose on an unsuspecting world!

      But as for your other comment... are you drinking and commenting?

    2. I rarely drink but yes, I am looking forward to reading your book.

    3. "... are you drinking and commenting?"

      is there any other way?....seriously...I'm asking seriously.

    4. What do Badgers drink, anyway?

    5. ...would that be pre or post francis?...cause there's a difference....a BIG difference.

    6. PS...bit of woodland trivia....pre-francis, the Badger wasn't even a badger.....more like a marmoset. True fact.

      and BTW....I finally got thru this post....that is really pretty funny. I love that the liberal, intelligentsia, wonks thought this was for-real.

      "...and thinking themselves wise, they made themselves fools"

  6. I'm proud of my buffoonery. I was uplifted after reading that meaningless, worthless, nonsensical essay.

  7. Thanks Bear for another demonstration of liberal madness. Aphorism: If something doesn't make sense it is liberal, e.g., Pope Francis.

  8. Brother Bear,

    Thanks for teaching us that it is better to laugh and cry about this time that we live in
