Hey! My name is Alexander Rudenshiold, and this is my newsletter.
Yes, this is named after a Fugazi album; no, it is not my favourite Fugazi album. It’s named such because it’s about nothing, in particular. On the internet everyone’s a dog, metaphorically speaking – most of the time. It’s not controversial to say that the depersonalization which occurs via digital media has resulted in an inescapable Extremely Online reality where nobody is anybody, and everyone wants to be somebody. At this point, it’s probably better to just accept that than to fight against it. So, this newsletter is for all the internet dogs and wannabes.
In 2022 I got my M.A. in Media, Culture, and Technology at U.Va.
I am now getting a Ph.D. in Film & Media Studies at UC–Irvine.
