EXPLODING APPENDIX – On Film, Counter-Culture, Identity Politics, Gender and Christian Love.
EXPLODING APPENDIX Bradley Tuck
Exploding Appendix is an amazing new online initiative by our ex-colleague / editor Bradley Tuck.
Exploding Appendix is the subsidiary remnants of a philosophical masterpiece. Part wasteland of once refined, part architecture built of dismembered pieces.
Exploding Appendix uses cultural fragments and artistic expressions to explore philosophical, political and cultural ideas. Bursting through your intestinal tract, Exploding Appendix, offers an online platform combining essays, articles, videos, podcasts, photography, comics and other art pieces to provide multimedia rupture to your pleasant morning stroll.
We hold a suspicious distaste for etiquette of any shade. We like our art brewed in the murky sewers of scandal and controversy; our theory born out of a disregard for tradition. We seek to melt and meld, mince and mash, flip and fuse. We seek to bring the most unexpected together in a feverish gourmet of irreverence.
We like our politics to be equally challenging. We would like to imagine a future without victims or parasites, where the emancipation of all grounds the fearless invention of tomorrow. Yet we will hold no fetish over which path will take us there. We seek to use thoughts, theories, traditions and ideas like an experimental chef concocting the most unexpected cuisine. No tradition is sacred. All traditions will be ours.

Last year Peruvian Tree Productions interviewed Exploding Appendix Bradley Tuck. They discussed film, counter-culture, identity politics, gender roles and Christian love. There is a little bit on David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Marilyn Manson, Mary Poppins and Pedro Almodovar. Hopefully you find this and interesting and thought provoking video.
Peruvian Tree Productions is a collaboration between James Marcus Tucker and Michael Urwin. They have been working on a series of Inspiring Minds videos where they have interviewed figures such as gay rights activist, Peter Tatchell, the actor/director/playwright Rikki Beadle-Blair and the psychotherapist Meg-John Barker. If you enjoyed this video and want to check out more please visit their You-Tube channel or like their Facebook page.
COTO is a platform for expressing and exploring fresh, maybe controversial, but definitely thought provoking ideas that allow people to understand contemporary culture in new ways.
