[NetBehaviour] My name is [Your Name Here] and I am an Accelerationist

My name is Paul Hertz and I am a hodge-podge of contradictory and
half-ass[ed|imilated] philosophical viewpoints. There serve me well for
making art, but less so for staking out any sort of theoretical terra
firma. Given a choice, I would prefer islands to continents and slowing
down to accelerating (an issue Virilio discusses in some depth). I might
also prefer to set my path through the thicket of theory by tracking poets
rather than philosophers. Assemble the tropes and consistency be damned!
