    Allegro Con Plastic Lobster

    …mentioned in a review of Monsaingeon’s book by Edward Rothstein, the former culture critic-at-large for The New York Times, “Allegro con Plastic Lobster(:)” “Richter was enslaved by obsessions. He was tormented by a ‘terrifying, nonselective memory’: he could recall the name of every person he ever met and lost sleep when one escaped him. He…

    Love song of Prufrock

    T.S.ELIOT “The yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes, The yellow smoke that rubs its muzzle on the window-panes, Licked its tongue into the corners of the evening, Lingered upon the pools that stand in drains, Let fall upon its back the soot that falls from chimneys, Slipped by the terrace, made a…

    More Camus

    “I can have peace only by refusing to know and to live, in which the appetite for conquest bumps into walls that defy its assaults? To will is to stir up paradoxes.

  • Der Pessimismus in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart : Translating Olga Plümachers famous Philosophy Book on Schopenhaur

    Der Pessimismus in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart : Translating Olga Plümachers famous Philosophy Book on Schopenhaur

    Pessimism Past and Present Olga Plümacher (1839–1895) published a book entitled Der Pessimismus in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart in 1884. It was an influential book: Nietzsche owned a copy (as did Sam Beckett), and there are clear cases where Nietzsche borrowed phraseology from Plümacher. Plümacher specifies philosophical pessimism as comprising two propositions: ‘The sum of displeasure outweighs the…

    Rereading the Tractucus Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus Available from Gutenberg Archive. First time read Wittgensteins Tractatus I loved it. I tend to read philosophy as a part of language studies.

    Presently reading, and starting to take some notes. The Trouble with Being Born Time was becoming unstuck from being. Carried away by irresistible desire to proclaim.

  • Habit Tat

    Spot on Literature is a habitat for me now, a breathing organism. Tho one of oceanic starkness and darkness still, it has come to assume again a threshold of immanence — A decorum of intimacy, that puts ear to sluice of page, like Fitz and Zelda, Proust and his mum, or young Baudelaire riding his…

    Goal of expository nature is to get me in trough with the angels I like to say. Write in rain with certain authors Becks Burroughs — Rimbauds complicity with simplicity, not really Hemmingways. Naked Lunch Break cycles through the Incendiary with Zenus, and then stacks a list of liberatory contentionalisms at bottom to compel the…

    The bad and the beautiful, giddy and god awful. A pride, a prejudice and a passion. Hitting a triple, thats poison to the pesticide. Space to rover for glory, touched by freedom’s madness.
