Can’t decide what to read, so I’ve been going back and forth between these books:
- Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
- The History of Sexuality Vol. 1 by Michel Foucault
- The Great and Secret Show by Clive Barker
- Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller.
The problem is none of the books have been captivating my attention like Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson did for me several months ago. I want something complex but not diluted. Something fun but not cheap.
As for music, despite my recent flirtation with newer industrial releases such as the Haujobb, Imperative Reaction, KMFDM and ohGr, I have reverted to mainstays: Milemarker, Unwound, Skinny Puppy, Sleater-Kinney, PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth and what not.
Basically culturally I’m starving for something. What exactly I’m starving for, I don’t know.
