About meBack in school after Burning Man...after spending a month at a nudist commune in Majorca...after sailing from Barcelona to Palma...after spending a month dogging at Cap d'Agde. Studying now but preparing for Confest...yeah. Can you say mud bath?
I grew up partly on a sailboat and lived all over...living ferally when we weren't on the boat. We were in the states two years ago doing a road trip in a knackered old v-dub combi...where I met my current lover in Charlottesville! We're erotic kamakasizes whose goal is to root out sexual monogamy...Guattari lives!
I like movies but I hate American TV cuz of the commercials - sitcoms are pathetic bourgeois morality plays except Seinfeld which is refreshingly nihilistic. I don't own a cell phone (except a prepaid crapper for emergencies) cuz its a dog leash and I'm not a dog. I also like to draw, write, and photograph.
Burning Man was cool - at least something of the 60s still lives in America - perhaps there is hope. You do have UVA - the first secular university in the Western world and Jefferson - your first and last atheist president. Of course you showed your true colors by building a church and opening a religious studies department the second his body was cold...and there was that little incident of running a professor off campus because he was Jewish...land of the free - although you did legalize recreational use of marijauna in some states and gay marriage finally...to the rage of all your right wing filth...and you did elect a bi-racial MAN...good on ya...let's see if you have what it takes to elect a woman.
Now I'm reading for a Literae Humaniores degree at Oxford. I was accepted at Harvard (I only applied because my SO insisted), but who wants to go to a pretend Oxford when you can go to the real thing...America is Disney World...pretend everything. You even have a pretend democracy. What you have is what's called Inverted Totalitarianism...look it up sub-genius.
With a few notable exceptions, undergraduate education in the states is a joke. Most of the morons that matriculate in these schools are only interested in getting a job not an education. Look at the complaints about having difficulty reading Jonathan Israel's book Revolutionary Ideas.
So I am bigoted...so what? You're either too stupid or PC to have an opinion. My life is all about pleasure...according to my definition which also includes random acts of kindness - nuf said. If you're reading this and reacting negatively, thank god filth like you no longer predominate - the greatest accomplishment of mankind is atheism. God is an orgasm. That is what Terisa of Avila discovered: 'Christ has no body but yours.' Who are we to disagree?
About my libraryMy SO set me up with this LibraryThing thing. I mainly post under his name...who has to remain anonymous...for political reasons...but sometimes here. He used to be a prof until he met me - he mainly studies me now :-).
My ratings are 3 or above because I don't waste time on books that suck - except when its required reading for school...gag. Sometimes I'll buy a book because of a particularly luscious binding or paper - the senses are where it's at!
