TELL YOUR PUP YOU LOVE HIM

DataLounge, the scabrous homosexualist discussion forum of two decades’ standing, is a hive of scum and villainy only some of the time. Here and there, pearls of wisdom emerge, like these arguments against transgenderists and their apologists. [continue with “Transgender wisdom from DataLounge” →]

I’ve mentioned Camille Paglia’s aperçu that Madonna “thinks with her body” from time to time. Here is the closest I can get to an actual citation.

From an appearance on Imprint, a much-missed literary talk show on TVO, in 1992 (YouTube):

Paglia in red suit and matching lipstick

DANIEL RICHLER: What I’m getting at here is that you use academic language to explain something that you know perfectly well she cannot.

PAGLIA: Yes, yes. I believe that Madonna is at her weakest when she tries to explain herself in words.

— In fact you go so far as to say several times, referring to an interview with her on MTV: “Wrong answer.”

— Right! [laughs]

— You would like to be her… spokesperson.

— Well, yes, because I think that she does her deepest thinking, as I say in an upcoming review of her rather shoddy new book, uh, does her deepest thinking in music and dance. I think that music and dance are the oldest kind of thinking – thinking through the body, through the sensory language of the body.

That review, originally for Us but reprinted in Vamps & Tramps, did not mention thinking with the body. Later in that book, Paglia states that Princess Diana, like Madonna, “expresses herself best through dance, the universal language.”

    that we were destined to fail, that the future of our civilization was rainbows, unicorns, and chocolate-chip cookies – fruits Frenching their boyfriends in front of empty churches; neon-lit mosques eclipsing the cities our forefathers laboured to build; and finally, being finessed out of our neighbourhoods by swarthy foreigners who stare at our sisters, wives, and girlfriends the way lions stare at gazelles.

  3. Lauren Southern: “You’re all still fags.”

I’d still prefer to be stabbed in the front.

You can pronounce antifascist any number of ways according to national dialect and idiolect. I use a nasal alveolar flap, hence [ˌæɾ᷈iˈfæʃɪst].

A shortened form now in common use is antifa. How do you pronounce it?

Logically you’d use your native pronunciation of antifascist and knock off the last syllable. But that’s a complete non-starter. It would leave me with [ˌæɾ᷈iˈfæ] – strong stress at the end of the word and the same vowel as in cat. Like a teenager leaving the nest, albeit with purple hair and no ability to bench-press, you have to look at antifa as a creature unto itself.

The problem here is the variability of words that begin with anti‑ (in various senses): antidote, anti-inflammatory, antigen, antithesis. I’ve heard antifa pronounced about half a dozen different ways. There seems to be a convergence on this pronunciation:

antifa
an·TEE·fa – Strong stress on middle syllable; start that syllable with T; end vowel is the same as in hut and is not [a:] or schwa†
IPA: [ˌænˈtiːfʌ]

Evidence from recordings

  • I trimmed each clip down to a few seconds before the utterance and a few seconds after. Some clips contain two utterances; two utterances span two clips in one case. All clips are .MP4.

  • I’m giving colloquial phonetic transcriptions (a joke – you saw how much explanation I needed above [see daggered† section]) and International Phonetic Alphabet.

  • As ever, there are more right-wing sources than left-wing. Both sides’ pronunciations are converging nonetheless.

Thank Goddess that Canada had a right-wing-extremist mass murder of Muslims so that progressives’ and academics’ decades-long insistence of the danger of right-wing extremists could finally be vindicated. They were right all along, they can now insist. [continue with “Finally: A hate crime that progressives can get behind” →]

(WITH ADDITIONS) I unfucked various of Jordan Peterson’s terrible PDFs, and made audio files of YouTube interviews nobody in their right mind would sit fixedly at a computer watching.

(If you’re on a podcast or dictating over the phone, joeclark.org/jbp, /jordanbpeterson, or almost anything you could think of, including misspellings, will work.)

Update: I managed to forget esteemed colleague Jeremy Keith’s Huffduffer service despite having stayed at Jeremy’s house twice. You can now subscribe via RSS at will and audio files will just show up in your podcast player (surely Overcast‽) as God intended.

Peterson has about $150,000 in annual pledges, but neither he nor his son has acknowledged my many offers to help publish technically correct and usable files. The next things Peterson will screw up are transcripts and captioning despite now positively having the money to do both perfectly. The mark of a great Ph.D. is never ever admitting you don’t know something. His son Julian and I have been E‑mailing. I am slowly teaching him not to top-post.

Also: “C‑16” is not written with a hyphen.
