deconstructionist weirdo
You are a Deconstructionist Weirdo. Although
ostensibly originating with Derrida, the
theories of your particular school have long
since passed beyond intellegibillity; half the
time you don't even understand what you're
saying anymore. That's okay, though. You're a
lot more fun to party with than a bunch of
stodgy new historicists.

What kind of postmodernist are you!?
brought to you by Quizilla

My loathing of Derridean strategies of non-intelligibility only serves to destabilize the categorical limitations of this quiz (via Raging Kraut who is also definitely a Deconstructionist).

And then... Anthony's result is the best.

I'm a Theory Slut. Yay.

"You are a Theory Slut. The true elite of the postmodernists, you collect avant-garde Indonesian hiphop compilations and eat journal articles for breakfast. You positively live for theory. It really doesn't matter what kind, as long as the words are big and the paragraph breaks few and far between."

Thanks for the drive-by back at the Castle. However, I'm afraid you could shoot Trey in the head and it would take him days to notice. Shoot, sarcasm seems lost on him. And I do so hate intellectuals who can't spell.

I was serious about setting up a blog for the guy. I am baffled by people who will leave eight consecutive comments in a single post but won't set out a shingle for themselves.

I am also increasingly despairing of the possibility of a conversation with these people. They appear to have been deranged by the President's pronounciation of the word "nuclear" and utterly indifferent to the torture and mayhem their peacism serves to perpetuate. Misha is right. Their ideology only survives because it is protected by the sacrifice others make.

I am reminded once again of all the whining directed at Gondor...

The whole concept of Postmodernism is that words and not actions (or indeed facts) are the important thing. The fact that Bush pronounces "nuclear" incorrectly means that he is a miserable failure. The fact that he gets results just rubs salt into the wounds. It's the old idiot/evil genius/idiot thing.

Meanwhile, I appear to be a Cyberculture Floozie. Got that one right.

If you haven't, you should read the Commissar's review of ROTK. It fits in with "all the whining directed at Gondor..."

Oops. I hate typos when I can't edit 'em! Grrrrr!

One typo corrected... now off to find the Commissar's review!

"illegal Gondorian settlements in Ithilien"

Heh. Indeed.

Consider yourself blogrolled, comrade!
