i'm reading this just now, the first story is pretty ropey, well written obvz but real fucking dodgy/misogynist. second story is much the same, but heavy negi which makes me pretty happy...

"But why live? If life has no aim, if life is given us for life's sake, there is no reason for living. And if it is so, then the Schoprnhauers, the Hartmanns, and all the Buddhists as well, are quite right. But i life has an aim, it is clear that it ought to come to an end when that aim is reached. And so it turns out, ..."

anyone ken anything about this? Are there proper tattooists signed up for it, or is it more of like an amateur hour stick and poke frenzy?

i went to that, there were pro tattooists charging £40 per hour, there was some nice stuff being done, and some shite, but that might be about subjectivness rather than the talent of the artist. they showed some cool movies too, including a doco on russian prison tattoos/russian prison systems.

On a Beckett binge. Reading How It Is for the first time. It's great, obviously.

Also, has anyone read Friere's Pedagogy of Hope or Ranciere's Ignorant Schoolmaster? If so, are they awesome?

Also also, has anyone read any theory of pedagogy stuff like the above that isn't the above that they'd care to recommend?

which beckett you reading?

i was making my way through trilogy (Molloy / Malone Dies / The Unnamable) then lost the book. it was fucking awesome though, molloy reminds me of notes from the underground, partly cause it's also internal monologue, but also cause it's just so dense. and pretty dark and self pitying/self righteous in turns.

"I understand that you will loose money by organising gigs in squats, however, unfortunately, by the very nature of how social centres / squats
run, you always will. ....especially as our gigs (as are yours) are always benefits"

a show that loses money is not beneficial. therefore they either didnt lose money or didnt put on benefit shows.

Bought a stack of books for the first time in a couple of months, some classics I've some how never read like Catch 22 and Slaughterhouse 5, but am particularly looking forward to Team of Rivals, the book up about Lincoln's advisers.

i'm just finishing slaughterhouse 5 now, and reading beyond chutzpah by norman finkelstein. both are fucking awesome in very different ways!
