Q: Have you ever said 'I love you' and not meant it?

A: All the time. When I really love someone, I can only show it by making aggressive and bad-taste remarks.

I'm not sure I've ever read an interview quite like that one.

Have you ever read Zizek before? I'm assuming you have, but if you haven't, welcome to a whole new world. Other than being a Lacanian, he's mountains of fun. There was a documentary that was made about him, that was pretty good. He was also featured recently in a documentary named The Examined Life in which he expounded on the relationship between garbage and nature, and how ecologism is the new conservatism. He's also had a TV show/TV lecture series called The Pervert's Guide to Cinema which is wholly entertaining. He's the master of the intellectual one-liner.

And oh, he's a Stalinist.

Yeah, I was going to post it in this entry, and then I realized, wait, I'm spoiling the fun!! :) I suspect editing by the interviewer got this one at the end for greater punch value.

He makes you want to be proud to be a lefty in spite of the failures of communism and socialism.

Besides everything else, I refused to believe that Zizek doesn't have sex.

With that supermodel-cum-philosopher of a wife, too?

Methinks they have non-masturbatory kind of sex with each other. Often.
