If blogs are the leading edge, how come my staff of thousands (yeah, them again) took so long to discover Reality Studio? (Don’t answer that.) The site is dedicated to Burroughs scholarship, and so rich in related material it’s dangerous. You can end up doing nothing all day but read it. For instance, have a look at this interview with John Geiger, who wrote the biography of Brion Gysin “Everything Is Permitted — Nothing Is True.”
Which brings to mind this question: What would the millions of
mainstream meanstream perp watchers who tune in to the perv-nabber specials on NBC’s “Dateline” make of the Supervert site? It’s a self-described “sort of deviant Bauhaus [that] strives to create new experiences through the synthesis of art, technology, pornography, and philosophy.”
Supervert is an alias — a nom de plume — a moniker for an individual — a company — a corporation — better yet, a brand name. Yes, that’s it. Don’t get hung up on what’s behind Supervert. Just get off on what Supervert offers you, a unique combination of intellect and deviance. Perversity for your brain. Vanguard aesthetics, novel pathologies.
Only a few days ago Supervert launched a spinoff, PervScan.tv, featuring “videos of sexual perversity in the news.” Why let NBC corner the perp-watchers market?
