This makes me want to get a girlfriend, just so I can experience the feelings of inadequacy that any man with a grasp of current trends must experience when he sees his significant other reading this.
Or at least someone who is insecure...

Being sucked into a periscope
Still the mind is dull
Like you need another excuse"
… a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
.. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
domain in which it is clear and adequate…. - David Bohm
I saw a stand out today with all the books which are meant to be similar to it, Henry Miller got top billing in it and I think it is really shite, story of O, also shite, couple of other pop S&M books, shite too, the only ray of light was Anis Nin's Delta of Venus and In Praise of Older Women and Fanny Hill was absolutely no were to be seen.
It all only confirms for me that literary is not subversive or even mentally enriching.
