Currently:

Pasolini's Petrolio
a collection of Andreyev's short stories and stage plays
Martin Luther's On the jews and their lies (fun shit)
Everything from Leopardi

On Hold:

bits of Negarestani's Cyclonopedia (zchzuxchxc), half of a book with most of the most important shit ever written by Cesare Lombroso because it's huge, sum Religious violence in contemporary japan and ten pages of the Hypnerotomachia poliphili and no more because it's too necro and i could not bear reading a line reminding to seventeen different notes spanning from three lines to three pages each, it was hell.

I's white and well-read.

Yo read it? I stopped near the end of the chapter about earth ungrounding and the dramatic epic of the rats, it was neat but hard, my english's still not good enough to dabble in such essays, but it had some nice shit, silly shit mostly, like the rog of gog magog - i found some mathematical flaw in the numerals and countings he adopted and developed that i always meant to try to ask him about but the guy is a mystery, didn't he write the text lyrics whatever for an hecker cd, and had a split himself with - teh horror - kenji siratori as well? Favorite quote whilst reading it was "Love is incomplete burning. In my scarred, fevered skin, you see a person who belongs to sickness. In your healthy flesh, i see the same". I also tried reading some Heisman's Suicide Note but still the same with it, so far i can't get myself to commit entirely to treatises like these, i'm a wop after all.

i posted a "lol" about his collab with kenji siratori in clemon's fiction thread
i didn't get very far into it, still have my copy tho, might crack it open for a bit tonite
been reading beckett, finished confession of a mask today

edit: wanna say that the best thing about my particular edition of confessions of a mask is the fact that the back cover blurb describes mishima's death as "after a demonstration in the public interest, he committed suicide in the traditional manner of sppuku in 1970" lmfao

juliana spahr's book on ubu editions is good too but i really disliked the other thing i read of hers ("this connection of everyone with lungs" i think, it was too much of teary liberal i can't believe bad things are happening when im just sitting here writing poetry omg for me tho i liked some of the repetition)
