Ruin Porn

 You know the major art form of the zero's? Ruin porn. Online viewing. Abandoned cities, abandoned kitchey hotels abandoned movie theaters. Empty haunting dead. THE CANYONS is a movie about ruin porn of the human condition and it is a movie I am obsessed with. It's the orphaned child of TWIN PEAKS. It stars the most elegant ruined actress alive Lindsay Lohan who is stunning and perfect in this movie. I can not wholeheartedly say "you must see this movie" because I'm pretty sure it is one of the "worst movies" made. I've never let bad taste or bad art stand in the way of emotional or spiritual deliverance. Sometimes it is the sheer decadence of an object that provides us with deliverance. I love this movie. It is written by the same mind that wrote AMERICAN PSYCHO and therefore does not not try to make us feel good about our life. Have you ever heard of a cult religion based on the source of the New Age Movement "the course on miracles"? (A Course on Miracles has sold over 2.5 million copies and was once featured on Oprah) The premise of the entire first chapter is that everything has never actually existed..it is something we completely made up. There are no banks, no cities, no bicycles, no cupcakes, no wars, no forests, no earth, no space it is all a social construct. It claims that eternity is outside time and space and that this dream never occurred in reality and is "already over", though not the (illusory) perception. THE CANYONS is the New Age Satanist version of truth. Only it's not actually evil. It's just having fun with our self-serious belief that we even exist. Brilliant counter-culture decadence and art. 10/10.
