We will be reading excerpts from the new CrimethInc. book, Work. If you have the book the pages are 164-191 and 247-251. if you do not have the book the excerpt is available here: http://www.mediafire.com/?7bl87bj6pce71ic
Join us for food (vegan & gluten free if possible) at 7 pm. Reading at 8 pm.
Read it here – Call
This is a call. That is to say it aims at those who can hear it. The question is not to demonstrate, to argue, to convince. We will go directly to what is already obvious. This is not primarily a matter of logic or reasoning. What is obvious is what is perceptible, the realm of reality.
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…
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 🙁 .
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 http://www.mediafire.com/?0910m1l3seqdkzi
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 http://theanarchistlibrary.org/HTML/John_Zerzan__The_Case_Against_Art.html
