A new Randy Prozac (Goat Worship) interview recently surfaced on a Spanish website. Below is the English translation link. Prozac riffs on his website design, facebook, the new world order, and rumors about subliminal messages laced throughout his various video work.

i suggest throwing your computer in the garbage if you really want to make a progressive step towards freedom. otherwise get back on YouTube and jerk off to more cartoons and funny cat videos, but keep complaining about the new world order, then go relax and completely immerse yourself in new world order video game mind control technologies that rewire your ability to process information, and then go eat the new world orders poisonous food that you paid for with non-existent worthless Illuminati ones and zeros.

RANDY PROZAC (Goat Worship) Surfaces, Releases Statement

prozac2

The most active page on this site for several months now has been the comment section to a Randy Prozac (aka Goat Worship) post.

It has been alleged that Randy had actually died some months ago. A newspaper clipping of his demise surfaced, and a mysterious girl named Britney Morgue was said to have taken over his website, which thankfully has remained fully functional and even occasionally updated.

While rumors that he had possibly faked his own death and was perhaps institutionalized were also suggested, it seemed many were convinced that Prozac did indeed exit stage left. Sadly it appeared no more works would surface, and many were crossing their fingers, hoping that Britney would at least keep the remaining ship afloat.

Odd back and forth comments have become a daily occurrence in the last few months which only fueled the mystery further.

“honestly, when i come to the Internet, i expect to find The Truth, and to see this level of obfuscation is just terribly disappointing.

i expect to find much more openness and transparency from a website that has clowns masturbating in their own puke.

i don’t think i will ever have the same faith in comments again.”

Today though, it appears as if Randy has stepped forward. Not only does he declare he’s still here (alive), but in extremely rare form he tilts the mask up and takes a few moments to explain the origins and motivations of his massive collection of work, both as a member of the video art group Goat Worship and his solo absurdist video projects that have followed.

For those that don’t know (and unfortunately, not to mention shamefully, this includes many, so-called, underground and experimental film curators) Randy Prozac and his former project Goat Worship, have put out some of the strongest underground absurdist cinema in the past decade, which in turn Randy has archived while adding new works, all available to view on his website SentimentalCorp.org . The website alone is arguably one of the best personal film sites in internet existence with it’s self hosted videos, interesting-engaging and mysterious navigations, as well as NO youtubes, NO vimeos, and thank god no stupid ass “facebook/twitter/tumblr” I-“cons” for the delusions of social misery-media “glory”.

To put it another way, if people still cared about art, specifically current art in the subversive vein, Prozac would have been celebrated a lot more through alternative media, articles, interviews, and screening requests. But we live in a dark period where most of the celebrated subversives of the past now spend more time curating their persona on facebook rather than creating new works or seeking out true underground works of others.

It’s perhaps because of this black-out that Prozac’s sudden surfacing is a rarity, as well as a relief for his well being, even despite his new found flip off to still admirers of his work.

And having said this, his statement below signifies a moving on, sealing the Sentimental Corp lid, having come to terms with the motivational madness which fueled the fire. Future work from Randy seems uncertain, probably unlikely, but if his ‘mask back on’ last sentence gives a hint that something might be brewing, it would likely aim to be something completely different.

Here’s Randy:

to whom it may concern,

the materials i produced were a method and process to deal with pain. i personally have no interest in goat worship or any of the video materials i created, they were made only as a ‘means to an end’ and were never fully intended to be shared, but i did share them and they remain an attached stain on me even though the internal matters have since been processed and released..

i don’t believe that clinging to aspects of the past is a healthy pattern to develop, especially when trauma and pain were involved.. i don’t believe in holding onto pain, or embracing negativity.. i once did.. i once thought i needed it and it convinced me that i needed it.. but i don’t and to be honest i hate most of the people goat worship attracts because they are often parasites who revel in their own suffering and the pain of others. i understand because that was the state the materials were created in. rather than project it onto others directly i opted to create a controlled platform where i could spit out the poison.

i didn’t want the pain i went through to.. the hatred i felt.. i didn’t want it to simply remain within me.. to crystallize into a state of being and become permanent.. cementing me into oblivion with ‘me’ projecting how ‘it’s everyone else’s fault how i feel’.. i am accountable for how i act and react to my own emotions.

the world has too much selfish cruelty and too many people who’ve developed no sense of compassion. people who are mental/emotional sewer rats looking for any piece of rot to validate why they should remain in that fixed state of perpetual bitterness and automated loathing.. i am aware that i have expressed and endorsed hatred and misanthropy and that it was a reactionary aspect of myself, but it was not the core.. and as i said, it is the part of a person that holds onto all the manufactured reasons why i am justified in feeling my hate..because it makes a person feel the illusion of strength.. but it’s not a real strength.. letting go of it was.

i leave the materials (goat worship etc) online because maybe they can serve some function, perhaps those that resonate with that toxic state of being can see the process i went through in order to let go of it, although i doubt that, i know it would be easier to mock me, or to laugh like a heartless sociopath and feel nothing but juvenile emotional cancer. i know all about it and good luck with that.

the materials i produced were also a reflection of a sickness that i see, but that doesn’t make them any better than what they articulated through visual metaphor. i can only hope they don’t contribute more to the neutralization and desensitization of peoples hearts and minds, even though i know that they probably do.. i chose to make fun of my pain and that is what goat worship primarily was, i laughed at the hurt to reduce the impact of it within myself.. i would not want it to be viewed externally as a form of validation or celebration of the negative aspects of the self..even though it was that at the time, a transmutation occurred and i am still working through the residual radiation.

and that is what it was.. an ugly healing process and no healing process is pretty.

now i put the mask back on..

Love always,

Randy Prozac

Updates #6 : Goat Worship AKA Randy Prozac

 

Our Canadian Absurdists, GOAT WORSHIP, seem to remain disbanded. Left in the wake has been the ringleader, RANDY PROZAC, who is working under the moniker “Sentimental Corporation”.

Prozac has forged ahead, absent his usual stable of performers. He instead has been animating, using Sims characters it appears, to take the place of the ex real life co-conspirators.

The pieces are incredible, and clearly it seems he is able to cover more ground, and say much more.

Currently on his website, on the PARASITE DREAMS page, there are  6 “Treatments” each about 65 minutes long.  They flow so well you can lose yourself in these pieces. And despite their length, Prozac can somehow cover prescription drug use, senior citizen sex, consumerism, terrorism, religion, and feminism, all in the first 3 minutes (see Treatment 4) and it just builds to more Absurdist heights from there.

Some of the pieces I recall viewing a few years ago, so when trying to get an update on current work I contacted another Absurdist who informed me he hadn’t talked to Prozac in some years now, and emails were never returned. “He’s probably dead”, was the conclusion made.

Prozac’s work is a mountain of “what’s fucked in the world”, mainly the consumer laden, horrible culture trending, heavily corrupted world in which it seems most people hardly bat an eyelash at, let alone question, and instead just accept as completely “normal”. 

He’s delegated himself to his own corner of the digital world, the internet, while heavily swearing off any association with the social media trend taking place. Facebook? Twitter? No way.

All the former Goat Worship videos have been deleted from YouTube, account closed, and now he hosts his own videos on his own site which you have to be sort of a magician to navigate through.

Hence the prediction of “probably dead” could stem from perhaps the thinking that a breaking point has been crossed. Prozac’s a well written punk/rage artist taking on a huge amount of bullshit reality in 3 minutes, then not stopping for another 62. And that’s just one piece.

FUCK YOUR MENTALLY ILL

CASTRATED AND STERILIZED

MIND CONTROLLED WORLD

 

Upon further waving my wand and looking through his site, I see some “2012” signs that he is still here, and still going strong. There are music links which were done in 2012, as well as some spoken word poetry books (POEMS FOR THE MACHINES) for streaming, and much more.

I also found all the old Goat Worship videos. Instead of “Treatments”, these are divided up into “Rituals”. Numerous works, very lengthy, much more than I remember seeing on YouTube.

Here’s some comments from 2011 I stumbled across from a message board where someone had posted Randy’s site, and the forum members seemed to be blown away, though many confused, hence the attempted explanations below:

–“It’s the illusion. He’s showing you how it looks to him. Crazy right? Just because of how he’s reacting. Most of what he’s trying to represent is a natural product of society. While you want to think E! and all those sexy womenz and menz of society. Really society produces disease and diseased personalities. In the large scale of looking at the whole world.”

–“It’s all really over exaggerated to show you what it really looks like in his mind.

And then you start to see how he’s figured out how it’s society and the major people in power have shaped the population and that’s why everyone is like this. But it only stops when we decide to stop treating each-other like this.

I think he’s saying that it’s too late almost. Like there’s too many people that are so fucked up that you can’t fight them because they’ve just taken it upon themselves to steal everything to be the number 1 on top of the world. And how can you stop them all?

Change them maybe? I think this is the point of his videos. To show you the meaning behind it. “

–“And at around 9 minutes, the speech about ‘The loneliness of wisdom’, it’s surprisingly optimistic and goes against the idea Parasite Dreams is just a depressing tirade against the system. In spite of the unsettling imagery, it sums up what Parasite Dreams is about, not a struggle to ‘change the system’ but that we should disassociate ourselves from it and be aware of it to the fullest extent. The series is pleading with viewers to wake up, there is no liberal political agenda, the imagery isn’t that important, it’s all in the subtle details.”

GOAT WORSHIP RE-BOOT 2011

GOAT WORSHIP has been a bitch to track. A prolific video making experimental absurdist outfit, they used to have nearly all their work on YouTube and then in some sort of fit of rage or frustration they would take down their whole channel, delete all their videos. Then months later it would re-surface under another channel, then, once again it would be gone; either again self inflicted or YouTube inflicted.

In their hometown in Canada they apparently have been banned from various venues.

In 2010, in the U.S., they were featured as part of the Absurdist Film Festival.

And then, some sort of inner turmoil disbanded the whole Goat Worship acting troupe.

But the ringleader has returned, and has turned to animation (SIMS characters) to further spread the hive mind goat gospel.

The animation approach works great. I sat through 35 minutes of the “first dream” no problem and eager to get into the second dream series.

The incredible new website offers new work, plus all the classic GOAT WORSHIP videos, and also music.
