plan for august 16

the plan is to show episode one of adam curtis’ new series – watched over by machines of loving grace.
this assumes that someone will show up who can get the video to work off of a usb key. sigh.
we think that the following week will be the second episode, but we won’t show the third episode because it is not good 🙁 .

reading for 8/2 and potluck

come early (7pm), bring good food (pref vegan, nut free, gluten free and delicious).
there are two readings:
1) The Origin of Science and Art from The Art of Tracking: The Origin of Science by Louis Liebenberg – available at
2 notes on this text: first, the first page of the printout is for chapter 3 which defines “simple tracking”, “systematic tracking”, and “speculative tracking” which are terms discussed in chapter 4 and second, “a.m. Homo Sapiens” means anatomically modern Homo Sapiens.

2) The Case Against Art by John Zerzan available at
