...postmodernism essays...

Well I didn't post yesterday, and that was obviously very very sad. I had a Bio test today, which I think I did okay on, but I had to study a lot for it. Plus, I had to practice my beautiful cello, Philos, and yeah. We decided I'm Yo Yo Mo. Yep. That's just great. Anyway, yesterday was the 26th, and to my disappointment, nothing magical happened. However today was the 27th, and it was Nobu's and Mr. Vaughn's birthday today. We sang happy birthday to them at different points in the day and in various languages. It was exciting. Not really. Actually, today I was subjected to a sad confrontation to my denial. It was very sad. Nobu came to our PE class, and I was forced to observe athleticness. I tried very hard to avoid it, but it's no use. *sigh* I guess the fact that he voluntarily did PE is warning enough. Once I asked Angelina, "Is Nobu buff?" and she's like "yeah, decently buff" and then we make fun of each other's boyfriends. Ha. Kangway was being mean, he's like "your boyfriend's on track" and i'm like, "stop rubbing it in"... I should have said "your girlfriend's NOT on track." HA. Anyway, I try to promise myself that I won't like athletic people anymore. Or at least, overachievers in this area. Even Lucas counted as one of these. Of course, it was because of masochism, and macho-ism. *shudder* men suck. I want guys. I want weak, scrawny, incredibly hott, asian guys. Sometimes I may have to sacrifice the "scrawny" bit. Other than that, NO. No other combinations. I'm gonna stop ranting about this now. Anyway, Nobu is having me over to Zuke's house tomorrow for his birthday, and the thing I got him actually CAME! Here is a link, assuming he doesn't read my blog, which is a fairly safe bet. Yep, this is it

Anyway, on to more important things. I mean, what could be more important than my love life, right? WRONG. Haha. You couldn't care less anyway. Or you could care less. I get so confused. Anyway, I need to do my history, but right now, let me show you something Peaches found. First, though, I have a quote from Ms. Linder to Austin:

"I hope you don't smoke pot as much as you make that gesture."

ANYWAY, the thing Peaches showed me. Here:

Feminism in the works of Spelling
Y. Luc Tilton
Department of Gender Politics, University of Illinois
Catherine C. Dietrich
Department of Deconstruction, Cambridge University
1. Contexts of genre

The characteristic theme of the works of Spelling is a self-sufficient whole. However, Tilton[1] implies that we have to choose between feminism and subconstructive nihilism. The main theme of Reicher's[2] analysis of the neocultural paradigm of discourse is not, in fact, discourse, but subdiscourse.

"Class is fundamentally impossible," says Sontag. Therefore, a number of theories concerning dialectic postsemantic theory exist. The primary theme of the works of Eco is a mythopoetical reality.

In the works of Eco, a predominant concept is the concept of textual consciousness. Thus, Debord uses the term 'the neocultural paradigm of discourse' to denote not appropriation as such, but preappropriation. The subject is contextualised into a postdialectic discourse that includes narrativity as a whole.

However, the main theme of McElwaine's[3] essay on the neocultural paradigm of discourse is a cultural reality. Sartre uses the term 'postdialectic discourse' to denote the futility, and therefore the stasis, of subpatriarchial reality.

But if the conceptualist paradigm of consensus holds, we have to choose between postdialectic discourse and postcultural rationalism. An abundance of theories concerning the bridge between sexual identity and class may be found. However, Lyotard promotes the use of feminism to modify and analyse sexual identity. The subject is interpolated into a Lacanist obscurity that includes consciousness as a paradox.

It could be said that Marx suggests the use of the neocultural paradigm of discourse to attack capitalism. Several discourses concerning modern presemanticist theory exist.

However, la Tournier[4] states that we have to choose between feminism and subpatriarchialist nihilism. Any number of discourses concerning a self-fulfilling reality may be discovered.
2. Eco and Lacanist obscurity

If one examines postdialectic discourse, one is faced with a choice: either reject feminism or conclude that the establishment is capable of intent. Therefore, if conceptual neotextual theory holds, we have to choose between the neocultural paradigm of discourse and capitalist libertarianism. The primary theme of the works of Eco is not narrative, but prenarrative.

"Sexuality is a legal fiction," says Marx. However, Pickett[5] implies that we have to choose between Sontagist camp and modernist theory. Debord's critique of feminism states that the raison d'etre of the reader is deconstruction, but only if postsemiotic constructivism is invalid.

If one examines postdialectic discourse, one is faced with a choice: either accept the neocultural paradigm of discourse or conclude that art serves to entrench outmoded perceptions of class. It could be said that the subject is contextualised into a cultural rationalism that includes truth as a paradox. The characteristic theme of McElwaine's[6] model of postdialectic discourse is the role of the poet as writer.

"Language is part of the economy of narrativity," says Lacan. However, the example of feminism prevalent in Gaiman's Neverwhere is also evident in Death: The High Cost of Living. The primary theme of the works of Gaiman is the common ground between class and language.

In a sense, Derrida uses the term 'the neocultural paradigm of discourse' to denote the dialectic, and eventually the genre, of subcapitalist society. If postdialectic discourse holds, we have to choose between dialectic theory and postpatriarchial discourse.

Therefore, the subject is interpolated into a feminism that includes art as a reality. Dahmus[7] suggests that we have to choose between neotextual capitalist theory and the subcultural paradigm of reality.

It could be said that if the neocultural paradigm of discourse holds, the works of Gaiman are reminiscent of Burroughs. Baudrillard uses the term 'feminism' to denote the bridge between sexual identity and class.

Therefore, Lyotard promotes the use of postdialectic discourse to read society. The subject is contextualised into a textual appropriation that includes language as a paradox.

Thus, Debord's analysis of the neocultural paradigm of discourse implies that context comes from the collective unconscious. The characteristic theme of Hubbard's[8] essay on feminism is not discourse, but postdiscourse.

The essay you have just seen is completely meaningless and was randomly generated by the Postmodernism Generator. To generate another essay, follow this link. If you like this particular essay and would like to return to it, follow this link for a bookmarkable page.

The Postmodernism Generator was written by Andrew C. Bulhak using the Dada Engine, a system for generating random text from recursive grammars, and modified slightly by Josh Larios (this version, anyway. There are others out there).

This was definitely link-of-the-day-worthy. Here we go:
Postmodernism Essay Generator I should figure out what Postmodernism actually is one day, though.

Today we watched a very strange video in Health (and yesterday) and it was quite disturbing. I see that he has TEN videos. Hahahaha. His name is John Burstein, you can look him up yourself.

On a different note, Iiaeaux said that a bunch of people were watching Tom and Zoe kissing in the hall after school. It reminds me of my conversation with Julie yesterday, which went something like, "Are Tom and Zoe going out or something?" And she said something like, "No one has officially asked each other out yet, but they go on dates and hold hands and stuff" and i'm like, "so why hadn't I noticed this before, like, last week?" and she's like, "well it's only been going on a week." Haha. I'm so observant. It doesn't really bother me, neither do Ben and Maggie. I just don't see why the guys like their girls. I mean, Tom and (sometimes Ben) are so cool and un-preppy and lazy and ... nice. But I really really don't like Maggie or Zoe. There's just something about them. However, Barr said Zoe asked how I seduce Nobu. Hahahahahahahaha. Yeah, apparently they have a little family tree that I have been integrated into, without having to allegedally have screwed Nathan to produce whoever's child I'm the mother of. That is always a good thing, when you find out you didn't have to do that. Yes yes yes. I think I will take a shower and wrap Nobu's clock.
