TLASILA Blog: A forum for all things related (and of interest) to the experimental collective To Live and Shave in L.A. Founded by Tom Smith in May 1990, TLASILA is antithesis, energized at the juncture of aesthetic revulsion. Genre is obsolete.
"Postmodern thinking damaged neglect, while post-structuralism insisted damage be countered by sour aesthetics. Conversely, the sublime Dentally Orally are visual Marxists, meting obstacles to inflection. Their corrosives abide the fascinations of abused and degraded critique, with, as their newsletter (!) avers, "visual side disputes correcting contrasts of instance". Damaged peers open neglect and mark the loneliness of cultural departure with a photography of domestic asperity. The iconic relativism of Yet Stale Envy... offsets any infusion of 'balanced' asymmetry. Moan-cloaked spirals are dead matter."
