JLB Chats #08 w/ Chad + Dante + OriSim (11-Sep-2018)

Was Osama bin Laden a real person, or a fictional character played by actors? Did actual planes hit the Twin Towers on 9/11, or was television used to fool the lemming masses once again? Speaking of the Twin Towers, were these real and legitimate office buildings, or were they gigantic props ‘built to be brought down’? In the largest terror event the world has ever seen, did anybody really die or get hurt?

On Wednesday, 12-Sep-2018 (Australia time), I made another appearance in the Fakeologist audiochat Discord server, to partake in the annual Fakeologist 9/11 Special Discord audiochat. I was joined by Chad from California, Dante from New York, and OriginalSimulant from Florida, to discuss all of these questions and more.

This podcast features that discussion, mirrored straight from the Fakeologist audiochat. In the past I have recorded introductory and closing remarks to accompany ‘JLB Chats’ re-releases of the Fakeologist audiochat files, but this particular piece is presented ‘as is’ i.e. direct from the original upload (edited only to remove the section not involving myself).

Original Fakeologist call: here.

Production notes: Recorded 11-Sep-2018 (US time), 12-Sep-2018 (Aus time). Re-released as Chats episode 19-Sep-2018. Timestamped as 11-Sep-2018 for practicality. Rendered at 32kbps (native file 16kbps).

    i just caught a 70mm screening of 2001, and it reminded me what i meant to comment about artistic production when i listened to this. that is, i believe there’s an element of surprise/discovery for any artist/creator vis-a-vis his/her own artifact/creation when encountering an audience’s reactions. once a piece is released to the audience, i reckon one of the things a producer should look forward to are the unanticipated responses, the ones that show a creator new ways of exploring that very creation.

    so i guess i don’t believe it’s even possible for an individual creator to neatly pave every single avenue of interpretation running between artist/artifact/audience. perhaps playing at controlling those routes amounts to making something more akin to propaganda. rather, artists may create landmarks for the mind, yet audiences ever blaze their own trails there and back.
