In Episode 5, This Spartan Life interviews guerrila media icon Malcolm McClaren. In addition to talking about his work in fashion and with the Sex Pistols, he offers thoughts about how the web is the new rockstar world.

There's something about the web that says it doesn't have to sell you anything. The virtual world becomes a more comfortable world – a world where the outlaw spirit can exist … a world where you can in truth become an artist again.

Pink Floyd, Roger Waters and David Gilmour fans will want to get to know Taren Fox. There are a bunch more from the Portugal show – much better production values than your average YouTube fare. If you can only watch one more, how about The Gunner's Dream?

The effect of activating the Blogstar was far greater than I had anticipated. Ken warned me about it but I (of course) wouldn’t listen. I found that it wasn’t really possible (or desireable, for that matter) to turn it off. Thompson suggested an application of Chinese fireworks which (while certainly colorful) seemed excessive. I told him to master his fear – he chose tequila and lies insensinate on the couch with a sleeping (and lovely) Helen.

All of us are experiencing a profound warping even though none but Thompson typically medicate in such a way as to produce the effects. E told us that she expected as much (illustrating her point on the walls in a manner that was a marked improvement over the wallpaper). The gist, she said, is that we have all been partially severed from the certainty of time and rove fore and back in the manner of a rolling wave. E seems most stable (she says it’s a learned thing – I think she’s just lucky) while some like Thompson are on and off like an unreliable public utility.

E also says we’re passing behind some sort of existence schmonsky and that there will be some disruption.
