well well well

Well, I watched "My Octopus Teacher" on netflix: a flawed but moving documentary about a straight man who has a lifechanging erotic relationship with a female octopus. I cried, then read out loud to my friends the entirety of @amiasrinivasan's 2017 essay (https://t.co/ILun9KMlxz) pic.twitter.com/Azefm8xJjU

lol, that film is dumb insofar as he befriends an octopus and then doesn’t interfere with a shark attacking it but then feels it’s appropriate to bring it food to heal and then bring his son to meet the octopus and that’s at the halfway mark of the film. narrator says “that’s when my relationship with my teacher deepened” and i peaced out. i’m as avidly pro-cephalopod as the next person but projection on that level is just gross. yes, the photography is spectacular. it’s good oceanography film porn but no, it's not erotic.

actually, i just read that whole tweet thread and i guess lewis is right on!

Some of the reactions to that fun thread..

xyzzzz__, Monday, 21 September 2020 20:01 (eleven months ago) link

Bernie would fuck an octopus

is it possible to have a non-erotic relationship with an octopus? or, because octopuses are by nature boundary-negating (in your reading) which is the essence of eros (in your reading), does that make them inherently erotic, meaning all relationships with octopuses are erotic?

I have to say, I never much care to hear anything from Elizabeth Bruenig and this goes double for this.

I have no intention of watching it but that LRB piece linked is classic and all the tradcaths/bores replying to that thread going “uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” are only telling on themselves.

that moment just before the lethal neurotoxins from the blue ringed octopus paralyze your muscles and you can't breathe any more!

I have had a very similar experience - "oh wow, look, I think that is a tiny octopus! how magical, never seen one in a rock pool before"
*BING, dozens of blue rings light up on its skin*
"oh shit I am leaving now"

in the thread it diverges into other dangerous Antipodean creatures like the "murder-bird" and on reflection I very much like this colourful little octopus.
