to continue our month of nihilist queer readings, here is the ending of the new book Queer Ultraviolence.
make tote destroy and all that…
so we screwed up and didn’t put the reading for this week (which is the editorial from the new journal Lawless), although luckily some of us have the hand out, and some have the journal, so tonight should still be saved.
this reading starts out a month of queer nihilist readings. the reading for 6/5 is the conclusion of the new book Queer Ultraviolene.
also – next week is potluck. bring food and come at 7. yum.
the reading for this night is kropotkin, a brand new scan thanks to sam and audrey.
here is the link for the download.
remember this is also potluck night. bring yummies!
we will be reading Theses on the Philosophy of History by Walter Benjamin available for download here: http://www.mediafire.com/?no9xaua8j6neayr
we will be watching videos, either two shorts (i didn’t catch what they were about) or the old but still very funny Surplus (featuring rice and beans), or perhaps some combination of the above.
also there is no plan for a reading for two weeks from now, so if someone gets inspired, now is the time to act! (or, before the 13th, anyway.) bring readings for us! bend us to your reading will! or maybe we’ll make another run at a good louise michel reading. who can tell.
the reading is the rest of desert (from page 17 to the end of the book -roughly 50 pages). there are probably still copies available at the long haul.
also, this is potluck week. we welcome good food, especially vegan, nut-free, and alcohol-free food.
we’ll be reading the sovereign self, a brand new, beautifully put together little egoist paper put out by some folks in tacoma, wa.
also, here is a reminder that we will have a special guest on november 15th, a charming and affable anarchist philosophy professor and contributor to the anvil, talking about language, spectacle, and morality.
next week (10/11) we’ll be finishing God and the State, by bakunin.
after that we’re going to Galleani’s end of anarchism?
(also for two weeks), and after that we’ll be reading the revolutionary catechism
we will be reading claire fontaine’s ready made artist article (link below). some of us hope that this will be the last of the poofy french theory for a while. but the boxing match was inconclusive, so we will have to wait and see.
we’ll be watching the second episode of “all watched over by machines of loving grace”. the second episode is about (among other things) the creation of the concept of the ecosystem.
the following week we will be discussing Call again (the ajoda version mostly, but read whatever version you can get or that you like), with increased scrutiny and the question of what would it be like to write something like that for the bay area…
