You go on Ire.pub and what do you see? Some would call it a blog, others a digital magazine. Well, despite what your vision presents you, Ire Publications is neither a blog, or a digital magazine. We are a publication company and as such, we are going to begin an aesthetic and internal rearrangement in regards to how we function as a company. The WordPress will remain, but will only serve as a hub for updates and news regarding the direction of Ire Publications including but not limited to: new acquisitions, physical releases, and more.
This restructuring comes on the heels of a deal striked with Kantbot of Autistic Mercury. So now, the first ever project to be published by Ire Publications is: Autstic Mercury. From now on, all stories, critiques, inquiries, blog roundups, and much, much more will be posted to www.AutisticMercury.com
Website, posts, and legal structuring are currently in the works. Buckle up, and stay tuned..
Autistic Mercury is coming back soon, and it’s crashing through the wall like the fucking Kool-Aid man.
Ire began as an entity to work with Kantbot after his Angel Investor evaded. Having his read his Plan for An Autistic Mercury, but no Mercury in sight, I approached him and offered to procure the funds for AM and bring it into fruition. We came damn near to finishing up plans, until mid-December there was a lag due to private events.
[(Buzzfeed + Vice) – Anti-Intellectualism] = Ire Publications? : There was a time I was fond of Vice. They used to have some genuinely entertaining content that I could rely on for sedentary pleasure while pretending to work at my desk in my office. But Vice sold out, and has consequently become shit. Buzzfeed is the furthest thing was intellectual, with their pop-corn journalism model of information that no one on this planet ever would need or even want. However, seeing as most fringe content creators publish on Twitter, I think pop-corn isn’t all that bad so long as it is intellectually stimulating or that the reader walks away with something valuable.
Diverse Content: Instead of a Marxist publication, or Capitalist, Formalist, Futarchist, etc., what I want to do is create an egregore of all of this, from the autistic mind. This means this is not an “alt-right” or “NRx” or “Marxist” blog. It is an encapsulation of the collective consciousness of the fringe ideologues that have been percolating on message boards, their own individual blogs, or more likely, Twitter. Ire wants to unite everyone under one umbrella, and create an alternative-fringe media machine. One that challenges the mediocre, bubble-wrapped bullshit presented by anyone on the mainstream. We’re going to change the status quo.
Authors have a lot of free range on what to write about. Whether it’s a critique of a place you ate, an elaborate scathe of the New York City Subway and how it relates to Calhoun’s Ratse, or your own take on current events, to NRx Ducktales. With adament development and stubborn determination, I feel like I can make this really big, and then we all win. Including the humanities.
As this is grassroots, we’d like to start with a request of pro-bono journalism to start just this first 1-2 week bit till company incorporates and such things are officiated, however soon after that, unlike many nascent independent publications, we are capable of guaranteed compensation, (BTC or USD), given your consistent quality and adaptability. Your degree of involvement will depend largely upon your own discretion, and there is a high degree of flexibility in this area. That is why the main purpose of this post other than to fill you in on the project, is to recruit your involvement.
As a part of the recruitment process, we’re looking to collect a list of contributors/writer inventory, and to survey what everyone would like to write about, how much everyone is able to write, and how frequently.
This is a publication by the autistic man, for the autistic man. We will redefine the status quo. Gamers, rise up.
Abstractly, my goal is to arm the humanities the way J.P. Morgan armed Tesla and other innovators. Nauseous with the state of affairs concerning the media in the mainstream, and even the fringes, what I would like to do is arm as many of you little fringe intellectual autistisches and start an all star team of savants right here on this planta-sweatsh- blog.
A true treasure in this community was right there with me ready to wage this war.. while I was ready to (and still am) fund it after an Angel Investor pulled out. The plan was for me to acquire and support the growth of Autistic Mercury while allowing its original owners to maintain their own creative vision, which we already shared anyway.
Ire Publications was to act as an umbrella organization for A.M. however, as time went on, things went from having the Mercury’s general right by my side to a random disappearance. Unfortunately, communication has slowed to a halt. However my ambition has only grown stronger. That, my friends is what leads to to this iteration of Ire, a publication for the furthest of fringe ideology, by the autist and for the autist. The scope of topics discussed on here will be extremely broad, though all should hearken back to a core philosophy. Right now that philosophy is simply: do what the dying magazines aren’t. And what they aren’t doing, or trying, is taking into the account the enormous Internet egregore of comedic and intellectual prowess.
Of course, if you’ve read this far, you might have noticed that for grander, more provocative, and formal essays, I’ll need to contract the community. This is where we form an egregoreof the autistic mind, and channel that towards turning this website into a cyber neo-Don Quixote. Writers will be contracted and paid per article and reserve the right to hold proprietary rights to their works.
