Carlos Whitlock Porter, The Eccentric
Lovecraftian Madness on The Internet
I’m gonna keep this one short.
The internet exposes the public to radical subcultures and media. I have been on my binge recently with vintage internet hate site trauma and vintage NAMBLA aesthetics & pedophilia. And through my own research, I have discovered Carlos Whitlock Porter, and his personal website that takes the cake.
It’s hard to pinpoint his internet presence, as he’s known for making multiple websites that have this Geocities-like quality to it. It’s also a concern that he might have schizophrenia, as he’s known for rambling and writing nonsense.
His website is mirrored multiple times. Every variant of it has a special aesthetic to it, and possess an extreme, shock-jock transgressive quality.
Porter knows Nick Bougas, and has published his “A. Wyatt Mann” cartoons through his own edited collection, “Satires.”
You can see where Jim Goad gets his kicks from.
For some odd reason, Porter thought it was ok to create a webpage of dead fetuses and bodies to make the point about “The Jews” or something. Very gory stuff.
NSFW, the page can be viewed here at this link.
Porter screams the punk rock transgression of creating dead body collage and silk screen art straight out of the Search & Destroy punk store in the East Village.
But even more concerning is Porter’s wild obsession with white nationalist John de Nugent. Porter argues that he is some kind of plant. I agree, something is very unhinge about Nugent, as I had my own bout with him in the past.
However, Porter’s own page on Nugent being a “con artist” and “lunatic” is a fine piece of internet art on it’s own, just like Frithjof Arngren’s shopping website of the same name.
Did I also mention Porter also has multiple art pages on Nugent? This one being one of my favorites. It’s incredibly simplistic, and wildly effective. Everything from the irregular font size, the bizarre pictures, and the horrible indenting, Porter is creating internet zine art without knowing his true potential.
Every link leads somewhere else. To private documents, to fringe rants, Porter’s digital letters and power electronics zine art speaks for itself.
I don’t have much to elaborate on, considering Porter’s art goes back to my thesis on post-traumatic internet art. This article only bolsters my argument that the far-right is related with the subcultural outsider.
Take a look at some of his links, and you be the judge yourself whether he’s punk or not. Because this isn’t about “holocaust revisionism” anymore at this point.
