• at the last part of 2666 why this man makin me look at sea spiders

  • on the reals tho, a good encyclopedic ode/condemnation of the times and the land that we live in. proust style narrative looping over a dostoyevskian catastrophe of this side of the atlantic. nothing resolves but everything turns into to something else, something more interesting. def recommend it if u have like 2 weeks to burn ur eyes out.

    "In Sheep's Clothing" G. Simon

    Ideally i'd like to make a syallbus with some thoughts contextualized

  • good list. I look forward to hearing your thoughts (if you want to share them)

  • "In Sheep Clothing" is pretty approachable and convincing so far.

    Do your books tie into a theme for you? or random selection?

  • I bought the Beastie Boys book.

    yeah, kinda like a book for those who don’t really read, but it looks cool!

  • i like those kinds of book. the information is concise, the imagery is great.

    i think its a style that makes the most sense for bands.

    @demikat existential angst & death is the theme. (thats unfortunately been a theme of 2019 so far for me so its what I am gravitating towards). they are also books that I've wanted to read for a long time tho

  • ^ maybe that's been a theme for many people this year. I've been feeling it and trying to come to terms with what i can make of it. how has it been coming together for you - your year in review?

    I did that thing where I bought too many books at once, attempted my first read; wasn't here or there about it and became disinterested, but association is king and i lost momentum for the rest =/

  • yeah its been a really weird year. I'm inching my way through No Longer Human and its pretty interesting so far but I'll have time to knock out the list in December.

  • i read interpretation of dreams a while ago - at this point i only remember bits ofthe case studies we (my class) bounced the content off

    what are you reading/learning?

  • About to start some Richard Rorty

  • ay what r u starting toony rortys a riot

    ily postmodern grandpa

  • @demi We did a lot of his early work before the ego and id distinction including interpretation of dreams and 3 essays on sexuality, and we’ve read some psychoanalytic feminists and queer theorists and we’re doin a module on Lacan.

    My buddy I’m taking the class with is actully on track to become a practicing psychoanalyst. It’s really cool to plumb the actual clinical institution that exists today and see how theres a lot of analysists that are basically Freudians in many respects, even today a over hundred years after the practice started. I’m a cultural studies major so we get a lot of psychoanalytic “theory” but stay kinda isolated from actual practice

  • @shooty how are you going to, or rather, how do you see yourself applying your interest and theory post graduation?

  • @shoots achieving our country

  • @toon ooh report back what u think ive actually read that!

    @demikat I have lots of ideas. The end game is to be able to actually get a book written and published some day, but I’d only wanna do that if i knew ppl would actually read it.

    So I wanna build a popular audience through some sort of teaching, maybe podcasts, maybe videos. I have a little philosophy course website designed in a notebook I’d like to impliment in the future. Its all pipe dreams for now.

    I also make music and have this video game ive been working on and i like to think theory stuff helps with those.

  • i members you mentioning a video game briefly before. is it playable? is it a teaching game?

    i think it's pretty rad you're aiming to be a teacher of kinds and sorts. i look forward to the audience you'll curate.

  • I'm reading funny work quotes to chill out my mind while doing work.


  • not really doing work if you're on a website spacing out to comments dead people made, tho.
