Nowadays, whatever purchase you moon over, whatever person you lust after, most likely it’s presented on a smooth glass or plastic screen. On a laptop or a television. And no matter what the technology, you’ll catch sight of your own reflection. In that electric mirror, there hovers your faint image. You’ll be superimposed over every email. Or, lurking in the glassy surface of online porn, there you are. Fewer people shut down their computers anymore, and who can blame them? The moment that monitor goes black, you’re looking at yourself, not smiling, not anything. Here’s your worst-ever passport photo enlarged to life size. Swimming behind the eBook words of Jane Austen, that slack, dead-eyed zombie face, that’s yours. That’s you.
Give me a complete late-stage revision of my adult life.Invisible Monsters is a catastrophic ride from page one to the very last, I mean literally from page one that only has about seventy words. It's a disjoint and fragmented story that doesn't always make sense, which makes me curious how the Remix edition feels, it's that good.
Give me anything in this whole fucking world that is exactly what it looks like!
All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring. We must never, ever be boring.
