August

August has flown by. I'm not sure what I've been doing. For the most part I've just been socializing and looking for a new job. I've been reading a little bit. But I had to take a break from philosophy.

I read Naked Lunch and honestly didn't like it very much. It was a pretty frustrating book.

Right now I'm reading a book called Democracy Incorporated: Managed Democracy And The Specter Of Inverted Totalitarianism.

It excites me because it gives me a sense of a concrete line of historical and political research that I could carry out. I find the relationship between government, corporations, the military, and the universities. Really fascinating stuff.

Compelled me to buy a copy of a book called The Cold War And The University. Really really interested.

I may end up researching something like that for graduate work.

But yeah. Practicalities are dominated my life right now. A job hunt. Ordinary living.

Oh well!

I have an idea for an essay.

It would be titled 'Atonal Worlds, Master Signifiers, And Clausewitzian Theory Of Choice'.

Zizek's book Violence was what really clicked and made me feel like I could write something extended. Especially the chapter 'Sexuality In The Atonal World'.

I look forward to writing it. But I'm not sure when I will.

Over and out.

NO POEMS RIGHT NOW.
