DAVID CRONENBERG

Don't forget about The Brood!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSfZunKpRVM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSfZunKpRVM</a>

Potentially Cronenbergs most visceral.  It's about a doctor's new psychosomatic treatment in which recovery from psychological trauma involves the trauma expressing itself through physical manifestation.  This gets taken to the extreme when the horrors of the trauma are literally birthed by a women.

You guys are forgetting about R.A.P. Music by Killer Mike

Unless this was sarcasm, I don't see how this appeals to you more than m.A.A.d city.  Please elaborate.

I just wanted to say, I started watching this recently and it's fantastic.  But you all already knew that because I am like a decade behind on good TV.

That's awesome! What season/episode are you on?

I can't remember the passage exactly but I believe Fredric Jameson (in the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism) on the topic of the disappearance of the subject and the cannibalism of capitalist culture says something like "you cannot help but impose Claude Simon onto Faulkner".  Having not been exposed to Simon's bibliography, I didn't really understand what he was talking about until I heard Black Ivory's track and couldn't unhear it as a beat break.

Otherwise,

Fuck, this can't really compete with the other cover but it bothers me every time it pops up:



This whole series of covers is terrible.  What the fuck is up with the colors and typography!?  Also, "HENRY Miller"!? You got to be fucking kidding me.  If I didn't know better I would've thought that this was 'shopped joke for god knows what reason.

Are there any History or Poli Sci students that could recommend good introductory texts to Contemporary Australian Politics or an introductory overview of South American Politics?

OPPAN GANGNAM STYLE


A friend once pointed out that this sounds like "Open Condom Style" and now I can't unhear it whenever I listen to Gangam Style.

Acadian Rap

It's actually Chiac but whatever, that's way to esoteric.

Italo Calvino - If upon a winter's night a traveler

If anyone hasn't read it, it essentially explores the relationship between an author, a reader, and the text among other things.  I really needed the blunt dynamic to understand that there was more to the lit. game than just thematic analysis, character development, and symbolism.  Now, I pretty much hate lit. discourse because it obscures the very things I abandoned (that's not true, I still really love it).
