Well, what the fuck?

Nothing is going on. At home I'm debating what to research and read. I've got "The Real Work" by Gary Snyder and a book by B. Traven, but also lots and lots of weird stuff, which is another staple here. Cleaning out and organizing the book collection. From where I'm sitting right now I can see a shelf that contains the following "The Cities of the Red Night" by William S. Burroughs, "The future of socialism: perspectives from the left" ed. by William K. Tabb, "Classic, Romantic, and Modern" by Jacques Barzun, which I have yet to seriously read, "Atala and Rene" by Chateaubriand, "Freedom, Equality, Solidarity", writings by Lucy Parsons, "The politics of anti-semitism" ed. by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair, "The theory of capitalist development" by Paul Sweezy, "Earl Browder: the failure of american communism" by James Ryan, "From Hegel to Marx" by Sidney Hook, "Paradigm Lost" by Stokes, "Soliloquies in England and Later soliloquies" by Santayana, "The Storm" by Ilya Ehrenberg, "A Guide to Learning" by Mortimer Adler", "The Twilight of the Idols/The Anti-Christ" by Nietzsche, "The Crooked Timber of Humanity" by Isaiah Berlin, "Foundations of Leninism" by Stalin, "Symbolic Logic" by Sophia Langer, still have to work on that one, "The Age of Ideology", a collection of philosophical writings from the 19th century, "introduction to Positive Philosophy" by Comte, "Character Analysis" by Wilhelm Reich, "Culture and Anarchy" by Matthew Arnold, "My Past & Thoughts" by Alexander Herzen, "Under Satan's Sun" by George Bernannos, "Problems of Knowledge and Freedom" by Noam Chomsky, "Theory of Religion" by Georges Bataille, "Walden and Civil Disobedience" by Thoreau, "Bowie: Loving the Alien" by Christopher Sanders", "Crooked Little Vein" by Warren Ellis, "H.P. Lovecraft: Against the world, Against life" by Michel Houllebcq, "The Soft Machine" by William S. Burroughs, "Crimes of Culture" by Richard Kostelanetz, and "Johnson: Rasselas, poems, and selected prose", by Samuel Johnson.

One shelf out of many, hard to believe I've accumulated it all, but it's unreplaceable because it's so obscure.
