Real interesting sounding book (and good cultural tastes, obviously).
He has lots of tweets mentioning the Clash

Re: Whatcha reading?

86) Saga of the Swamp Thing Vol 1. - Alan Moore, Stephen Bissett, John Totleben. 1984. Comic. Enjoyed the fuck out of this, with Moore's typically deep, rich prose which luxuriates in its own vocabulary married to a brilliant, old fashioned colour style from old horror comics and occasionally in-th...

Re: The Election Thread To Talk About The Election

I'm pretty sure I've written about this before—with my post count? C'mon—but I've been reflecting back again on a book by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., The Vital Center (1949), which is a core text for understanding the Cold War liberal mind. In it, AMS makes the claim (and one echoed by Hannah Arendt...

Re: The Election Thread To Talk About The Election

I strongly suspect one of my sisters could be. She my wife, son and myself were chatting a few months back about what I dont recall. Bill Gates came up somehow and Ive never seen a person have so much venom for him. On the surface she isn't the type to have anything against him. I later did some re...

Re: What Are you Listening to Right Now?

Anybody listen to the new Momus yet? I bought it but it hasn’t arrived yet. Used to love Momus—and still like his 20th c stuff—but when he started putting out records that sounded like plinking on an old casio, I lost interest. Is that still his sound? I'm not sure what you mean by old casio. His m...

Re: The Election Thread To Talk About The Election

I guess the old school fusionism that ruled the GOP led them to believe that the free market would somehow protect traditional culture and values. I have no idea how they could be so deluded. There are a number of philosophers on the Catholic left (I'm thinking of Charles Taylor and Alasdair MacInty...

Re: The Election Thread To Talk About The Election

I think stuff like that is referring to the lip service paid to BLM and LGBT+ issues by the major corporations in the US. These kinds of social issues get recuperated (Debordian sense) or incorporated by capital relatively easily. On the right it's popular now to speak of woke capital, but it's real...

Re: The Election Thread To Talk About The Election

And that's the problem with politics in practice. Elections are so often treated by party loyalists as the choice between eden and the pit, and the effect can be to sour one on the whole thing. So, yeah, I agree completely with you and Wolter here, tho I maintain that it is warranted here (well, no...

Re: The Election Thread To Talk About The Election

I included abstention as an option! The problem with abstention is it seems to have no political effect. So if you want to do something that has an effect, you are funneled into voting for one of two options. Whoops! My glazed eyes missed that the first time. It''s hammered into us that we absolute...
