Eternal Blacklist Growing

There’s a war in Europe. No, this time it’s not about refugees escaping from such, but the big adblocker war. What’s happening? Big publisher’s in Germany are trying to get rid of users that installed an adblocker plugin in their browsers. Thirst, they displayed large messages on their news portals begging for users to switch off their blockers. The next level was bolting out users with an active adblocker. And now first companies are suing users who were publishing hints for circumventing the adblock blockers. If that’s no reason for putting these news portals on my eternal blacklist. Continue reading

Tumblr, Twitter, and the like

The emphasis on interest has created the buzzword of the day: Tumblr, and also Twitter, is an interest graph while networks like facebook and Google+ are social graphs. Note the difference: Twitter is rather transparent and you quickly learn how’s following whom. Tweets can be read by many, not only followers. Tumblr users are collecting stuff they’re interested in from people they are following. There is no ‘public life’ like Twitter has. Tumblr’s dashboard is one’s very personal window to the world, and that’s why so many of us got so upset when Yahoo was buying this platform. Continue reading

Aesthetics of Porn

Mental Sinema likes that moment of anticipation, the silence before ecstasy. We are looking at porn images as if it was art. Why shouldn’t it be art?
Mental Sinema isn’t that interested in the porn industry but in the aesthetics of porn. What are the patterns? How does porn work? Why are we attracted or disgusted? How does it reflect our own desires?
On our travel through porn we have discovered that porn needs some kind of cultural context. If a viewer assumes an image to be porn or not is dependent from his cultural circle. Since the legalisation of porn this context is changing constantly.

Top News: I Have Invented Bitcoin

Okay, that’s a lie, obviously. I’m not Satoshi Nakamoto, either, though you can find articles on this blog that claim quite the opposite. I also have never said that Bitcoin is the best currency for criminals – this might be true, but a bit bad, too. I don’t have anything against Bitcoin – you may pay me in it if you want, but it never ceases to amaze me how something that is only a couple of years old has developed a mythical history already!

Relationship Anarchy, Or: Sex And Nihilism

Alina Long, Jessica Fox

Alina Long, Jessica Fox

While polyamory isn’t for the faint of heart, this current trend gives me the chills: relationship anarchy is the new hot shit for people who probably consider themselves progressive. From outside, however, this ‘love without expectations’ is more than just living for the moment. If it’s really like described in this Motherboard article then it’s the current endpoint of consumerism. No questions, no obligations, no goals. It’s the old ‘No Future’ slogan, this time applied to your sex and love life. I can’t understand these people. To me, it seems like a life far away from any deeper feelings, like total isolation, drifting from and to disposable lovers. Continue reading

On Growing Up

(Remark: This is a post from my former Tumblr blog where I discovered a lot of young people hurting (and displaying) themselves. The following words are still true.)
Mental Sinema is a hard-boiled blog about porn, but some things I’m reading elsewhere don’t leave me untouched. So here’s a word to my younger followers (at least some of them) and many others that are going through a personal hell.
We all want to be recognized and loved, especially when we are uncertain about ourselves, and we standing in need of love, support and sympathy. You all know people who are growing up in a stable environment, getting all the love from their parents, their friends, everybody, where there’s always somebody willing to help if there’s the slightest hint of a problem.
Unfortunately, in most cases this person isn’t you.
