anything he has written. i think he's one of those writers whose entire biblography is incredibly diverse yet you can hear his own distinct voice.w4ffl35 wrote: Had a friend recommend Murakami, where should I start?

i've been obsessed with him for a while now, pick up closer and frisk (they're both really short so not much time investment) and if you like them read the rest of the George Miles books (Closer, Frisk, Try, Guide, Period) and on from thereLet's Fight! wrote:Yeah, I'm a fan of his blog even though I've never read any of his published work. His blurbs are also awesome.
Is that the same book with the Bob Mould out-ing article?

Adorno's "Aesthetic Theory" has been on my "to-buy" list for the longest time.... alongside shitloads of other Frankfurt School-related texts (both by the Frankfurt School and about the Frankfurt School).Clemon09 wrote:adorno's aesthetic theory - not by adorno

Have you read Minima Moralia? I think that's the best place to start with Adorno.Clemon09 wrote:hmm, yeah. i don't think this intro is great - at least for someone with very little knowledge of aesthetics, hegel, kant and that sort of thing. a lot of it reads as part nonsense and it's difficult to reconstruct much of an argument. _but_ i think that it might make that book easier to read - i looked at a couple of pages that had really stumped me and i think they clicked. maybe just determination...
