Quote from: RyanWreck on December 11, 2015, 09:25:40 AMMusic At The Extremes: Essays on Sounds Outside the Mainstream (2015) - Anyone read this? There is an essay by one Andrew Whelan, his essay is called "Power Electronics and Conventionally Transgressive Assembly Work" (wordy enough?) that talks about Nicole 12, IOPS (he quotes an interview I did with Mikko for IOPS), Sutcliffe Jugend, collecting, etc. Collecting is presented next to an actual screenshot of someones "collection" of Hospital Productions mp3's from some p2p network like Soulseek. No joke. You can read part of his essay on Google Books here is the link, (the PE piece is around page 70, though you cant read the whole thing) .It's pretty drab, long-winded academic stuff. I don't think you can get the idea of our obsessions through indifferent studies on fucking ethnomethodology, semantic theory, or whatever other boredom you can cope with. At times outsider perspectives can make an interesting read but this isn't the case here.

Quote from: oOoOoOo on February 24, 2016, 07:14:26 PMI've read a few books recentlyMy favorite book I read was The Wasp Factory. It was amazing how the story got weirder and weirder as it unfolded. I like these super surreal books which leave what is really happening up to you to guess.The other book I read is called In The Miso Soup. It was a fascinating look at the psychology of a serial killer in the form of a fiction. It had some moments that were so intense that I lost sleep over them, there were also a lot of psychological mind games. The other book I read was called The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. I did not like this book what so ever, because it was simply depressing and seemed to be designed to throw the reader into existential despair. One book I read half way through but dropped was called Story Of The Eye. It was a story written by a philosopher, which was supposed to explore transgressive themes. It seemed to play out like a dream, but the book itself was very relaxing to read, it's complete dive into the deep waters of depravity was something which made me feel like the world was lifting off my shoulders.I'm not sure what to read next. I tried reading the first couple pages of a William S. Burroughs book, but I dropped them because I just didn't become interested enough. I find it hard to read stuff if I'm not all that interested. I'm still looking for something else to read very soon, I don't want to stop reading and get out of the habit and just forget about it altogether.
