finally finished this past weekend, took me almost a year to get through it and ended up skimming a lot of the last few chapters anyway. mixed bag of theory and I haven't read Bourriaud which made things a lot more frustrating. but some good morsels in here overall.

next up

Ray Monk's biography is a fantastic gateway to Wittgenstein, especially if you don't have any background in philosophy. I don't think I would have even started to understand his work (or what others have written about it) if I hadn't read it.

with all the Murakami talk on the board and after watching Burning, plus trying really hard to get into shape lately, I started What I Talk About When I Talk About Running and it is extremely pleasant

bourriaud gets slammed a lot but i found his Relational Aesthetics to be kinda cool, surprisingly influential and a breeze to read, should be easy to find secondhand

speaking of wittgenstein, i found a nice hardback edition w/ cover of the tractatus from the early 60s behind the counter at a thrift shop yesterday. i asked to look at it then had the lady hold it while i looked around and when i came back to buy it, the damned person sold it to some other dude who noticed it on the counter while checking out! god effing damn it

I'm almost done. I've enjoyed it quite a bit. Hoping Let It Come Down is better to me because I prefer Tangier to Africa. We'll see.

When I went to Morocco it was such a trip to look out the plane window and think "That's AFRICA!" A place I never figured I'd be in my life

Disappointed in this. Some fine writing and i quite liked the cult section and the description of the videosToggle Spoiler but didn't feel like everything came together plot wise. Plus, and I know he's quite a fine fellow, Jeremy is a huge charisma vacuum. Also, the college kids and their oh so perfect parents in the last part are sickening. Loved his debut though and I'll read his next one
