Ludicrous Indulgence


 "Middle-class society had been reckless enough to set up institutions in which young,clever, morally conscientious people had nothing to do for three or four years but read books and kick ideas around; and the result of this ludicrous indulgence on society’s part was wholesale student revolt."
                                                         - After Theory 
    by Terry Eagleton
        literary critic,
           cultural theorist,
              mind troll.

While i have read some Eagleton along the way, mostly him explaining different critical approaches to literature..the marxist approach i guess...i never knew he was such a hilarious MOFO. I am wading my way through After Theory looking for a way to use the idea of plausible truth in the face of the superabundance of ideas in modern society...a.k.a. the internet...but am applying it to Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s writing...specifically speaking God Bless You, Mr Rosewater...wherein Eliot Rosewater searches for meaning in the face of his 87,472,033.61 dollar trust fund.

Anticipating madness.

Hello again Nobody,

Some time ago I had few and far between but regular bouts of temporary insanity which helped me feel sane. These bouts have all but ended thus I am left with some concern. I had always felt that these were spasms of reality and emotion that my mind felt the need to release. A steam valve, if you will, to ensure that the entire system doesn't crack open, irreparably.
          Hence my concern.
            No fear.
   I feel one surfacing again. Happy day.
              To clarify and alleviate any concern on "your" part, these spasms merely consisted of uncontrollable manic laughter interspersed with gut wrenching sobbing.
 Back and forth.
    Laughter and tears.
           Sweet equilibrium.

take that cao maru...


Okay N,
Here's the scenario. 
you are a father and your kid is always alone in his room playing loud music. one day you go into his room and witness this...

apparently you have sired dj bl3nd, nicely done...yes well he is jumping around in shorts, strobe lights are flashing, in front of a video camera...oh yes and he is wearing a Chucky mask..."from Child's Play?" you ask..yes from Child's Play. 
your interruption has just ruined his set...not to mention his You Tube dick.
the clip you have just ruined may have been his CLUB MIX from a couple of years ago.."the same CLUB MIX that has 42 105 619 hits?" you ask...yes that one.
WTF you may ask yourself
well here's the Fuck...
damnit i forgot...
the point wasn't that i stumbled across this little weirdo looking for hits on you tube...he found his way into my playlist because he finds great music and plays nice long sets of them back to i listen to him on YouTube as background music... 
lucky for me no one reads this.
i need medication.


in the meantime i will listen to this kid. 

this is my favorite
