1 and 3 aren't anything surprising... aside from my not understanding anyone who pays to get into a show to heckle/throw shit. 2 ... Was this after being hit in the head?

fucking cunt better not have given moz a brain bleed.

I only love him more with years.

It's a good, solid book. I wouldn't call it amazing or anything, but I think that's mainly because of I can't relate to 99% of his stories. I'd recommend it to people. 7.5/10

I'm reading "Stormbringer" by Michael Moorcock. I own a copy of the 1983 reprint. The cover leaves a lot to be desired.

Yet if anyone else uses the word "fag", loony lefties label them homophobes. Double standards have always been the norm for loony lefties.

I love Bukowski. His letters are particularly good reading. The only novel I've started to read but put down was Pulp. It wasn't that it was bad... I just prefer his non-fictional work.


I'm reading Tropic of Cancer.... again.

I'm totally with you on this. It's ever since those Muslims got into power, I can't kick the shit out of a black cripple without the Politically Correct brigade tutting heavily.

Incidentally, while I'm here, in case anyone's wondering why I never post in this thread, it's because I don't tend to read whole books and mostly stick to academic things that are of marginal interest to... well, even myself I suppose. This week has seen me reading up on Bible slash fic, 'post-Madonna' feminism [gash], Valentinian Gnosticism [AMAZING] and 11th century mysticism. Just in case you were wondering.

It's a load of male feminists making 80s Madonna into feminist wank fantasy. If you get a chance, John Fiske's 'Madonna' is probably the single worst essay I've ever had the misfortune to read.

the zizek and the jackson came in the post recently, but i haven't started either of them yet, just glanced at a few of the articles in the jackson one - first impressions are that it lives up to the whole zero books ideal and is definitly high calibre music journalism.

and this one i've read 10 times online already, but needed a real life copy - they should hand this out on the street instead of bibles

Tell me about this last one. That looks like the sort of thing I might like.

Also, props for Zizek. One of the few philosophers who, regardless of what he's actually saying, always says something meaningful.

Yeah, saw Glenn Beck fear monger over The Coming Insurrection. I would hate that to be the extent of its impact in America but I figure it will be. Should pick up a copy, anyway.

As for Zizek, he's the most love/hate contemporary philosopher that I know of. Some guy on another message board I frequent said literally the exact opposite, that nothing he says is meaningful. Really, I know Zizek mostly from his Marxism 2009 debate and that's about it.

the coming insurrection -

it was called "a manual for terrorism" by the french government"
the supposed authors (they probably weren't but had some connection to them) were arressted in their commune somewhere in northern france. they were released ultimately, i think zizek and agamben had something to do with circulating a petition calling for their release.

when a translation of the book hit new york - people organised an unofficially reading in a barnes and noble. after a crowd gathered the manager tried to get them to fuck off - but they refused and started reading out passages until they were eventually kicked out, they continued down the street and had looted a perfume shop and screamed at the cops before it was all over.

but perhaps best of all, glenn "I AM LITERALLY FUCKING INSANE" beck read an advanced copy and dedicated a segment on his show about it. in which he warns that the ultra left is preparing to take up arms, and we should all be ready.

someone in the new statesman called in potentially the most important book of the century. nina power of the infinite thought blog wrote a review for frieze which i can't read because i'm not a subscriber, and perhaps most interestingly of all, it's really pissing off some of the anarchist community. they really seem threatened by it, perhaps because it threatens their cosy/ineffective activist structures and heirarchies? some of the online reactions to it have been idiotic and irrationally dismissive, calling it simply "poor" and lacking in ideas.

you can read it
