A Zine About Internet Pets
A zine about internet pets
I didn’t try to be neutral with this zine. I tried to present Rogan and his most famous guests as the internet perceives them. The quotes here are all directly from the speakers. I did my best not to quote-mine in a dishonest way. The non-quotes about Financial Robots are from an email spambot. They are a purer representation of the internet ether than anything I could have imagined or invented.
This Joe Rogan is a gorilla – silly, hyper- masculine, short, strong, nature-loving, and loud. Gun enthusiast Tim Kennedy is a shark/kitten. Rogan describes him as “one of the most American Motherfuckers that’s ever lived, the great and powerful Tim Kennedy.” Like everyone in this zine, he’s loved and hated – deadly and cuddly felt right. Jordan Peterson is an iguana-parrot. Is he parrot for right wing ideology? Is his ideology so dated it’s actually prehistoric? The internet sure seems to think so. I thought it made sense to include a prophetic quote here. We’ll see if it holds up. And then there’s Ben Shapiro as a lapdog. Because, well, some people love him and some people think he’s a sycophant.
