I am starting a new internet meme. I’m calling it LOLsaints LOLsages. Here’s the first installation:

*I’ve been informed that LOLsaints has already been taken. Damn my impulsive lust for novelty; i didn’t do my homework first.


NOTE: LOLsages is inspired by LOLcats, and essentially represents a post-post-modern mashup of the incredibly brilliant and the incredibly stupid.  If you are not already familiar with the LOLcats phenomenon, i suggest that you try googling the term.  Or you can simply refer to the cartoon below, which sums it up pretty well.

What Is Boomeritis?

July 27, 2009 3 comments

(This is the first thing i ever wrote for Integral Naked, way back in 2003.)

What is Boomeritis?

Diagnosis: The postmodern cultural condition whereby highly developed cognitive pluralism becomes infected with poorly developed emotional narcissism.

Symptoms include (but are not limited to): rampant deconstructive tendencies; fits of nihilism and romanticism; self-serving victimhood; aperspectival madness; idiot compassion and reckless egalitarianism; frequent outbreaks of hypocrisy and performative contradiction; earth-shaking delusions of grandeur.

Prognosis: Boomeritis is a parasite which feeds off of the fruits of postmodernity. Those inflicted often lose themselves in a solipsistic playground of self-indulgence where, under the banner of pluralism, they place themselves at the center of the universe, only to awaken one day in a barren wasteland of self-deception and spiritual impotence. This disease ultimately infects the entire Spiral, collapsing it into flatland inanity, widening and reinforcing the gaps between each successive stage of consciousness by viciously denying developmental stages altogether. Under the hypnotic gaze of Boomeritis, multiculturalism becomes rigid identity politics; pluralism becomes fascist political correctness; and ecological sensitivity becomes the Unabomber.

Treatment: Integral Life Practice, familiarization with the Always Already, high doses of humility and humor.

Help me help you help me.

Since launching http://www.CoreyWdeVos.com nearly 24 hours ago (the dark ages of the internet, as everyone knows… how far we’ve come) I have been approached by not millions, not thousands, not even hundreds of people, but one beautifully sentient holon, all of him asking:

“Corey, this pitifully transparent attempt for some sort of information-age immortality project is, without a doubt, one of the most important pitifully transparent websites I have ever come across—and believe me, there have been many.  What can I do to help your vanity project truly stand out in the noise of today’s digital scurry?”

Well Corey, this one is for you. (Coincidently, his name was also Corey.  That kind of stuff freaks me out sometimes, as you can read about here.  Another weird coincidence: he and I are also the same person. I talk to myself sometimes.)

I have been engaging in a comprehensive social-media marketing strategy—shifting some paradigms, revolutionizing outside the box, and synergizing with natural systems—and I would like to share it with you.  I am sure by now you have already followed this to its inevitable conclusion: you are one of the luckiest people to have ever walked the face of this planet. You’re welcome.

I have drawn from a rich palette of highly successful and well respected advertising gurus*, learning from their almost transcendent mastery of linguistic subtlety and grace, and have used what I have learned to create what I am about to give you—much like a painter uses different colors to create his masterpiece.

I believe I have indeed given birth to that masterpiece.  What you might call a magnum opus of marketing copy.  A chef-d’œuvre of subliminal manipulation. A pièce de résistance of friendly (yet patently irresistible**) brainwashing that will politely bash through your skull, tenderly carve through your neocortex and limbic system, and affectionately kick your reptilian brain stem squarely in the nuts***.

Make no mistake, this is a Sistine Chapel of social-media advertising.  It’s some heavy shit.  And I want to share it with you all.  Because it totally benefits me.

Here’s what you do: simply copy and paste the following copy into your various social media websites, and with almost no effort I will be guaranteed a lifetime of endless prosperity.  Which, of course, will totally benefit you in the end—after all, you will know that I am happy, and that should make you feel good.

Are you ready? Are you sure? Okay, here it is:
