Next Waves Theater #7: Maximum Karnage

The Max Karnage Show (aka Maximum Karnage) is a superlative feedstream avatar from somewhere not now. Something of all types of talking heads, Max was created for your feedstream as a vehicle that fetishizes post-apocalyptic nostalgia for the pre-apocalyptic Internet media of the early 21st century.

Before the massive social upheavals of the Aquarian age, before first contact, before singularity, before fractured reality, before post-truth, y'know the good old days. Max’s use of kayfabe satirizes the opportunistic notification fatigue of the year 2020. Because in hindsight everything is 20/20.

Maximum Karnage is an integrative hybrid talk show format utilizing sporty political techniques to address anti-racist vigilance in the theatrical world. Using early meme culture the appisode / s is / are structured to reflect the digestible trauma of the notification media. Engaging with the apocalypse of here and now.
