A few years ago, when Disinfo released Generation Hex, it was along with a message from the editor of said book (Jason Louv) that the kids of today were appearing in record numbers, and we were going to, like, take back the world.
Did that happen? Fuck no. We didn't take shit back from... Anyone.
But, uh, Louv did manage to get one volume of the Ultra-Culture journal out. (Is it just me, or were a good deal of the contributors over the age of 30?)
So, five years later, I'd like to know: what happened? Did it just never come together? Was there a total of three gatherings before individuals discovered they loathed one another? I recall hearing something about Louv distrusting people that worked with the Lwa, but I have no idea as to the specifics.
Was this just a bunch've smoke blown up the collective asses of the occult youth of yester-year? If so, have we learned anything from it? Am I allowed to declare that this project was worthless and probably one of those many ego-get-togethers where we all assure one another things are getting better and we'll take over in no time?
As per usual, I have nothing but doubts. I guess that makes me a “hater.”
