Read, read, read!!!! education, imagination, humour

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Enjoy! I’ve got a dedicated autographed copy somewhere, signed by RAW sometime in the early/mid 90’s at Forbidden Books in Dallas, TX.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Not a book, but an announcement of a series of articles by the Quietus investigating extreme politics in underground music
With the far right in ascendence across the globe, there's never been a more necessary time to investigate fascist and racist infiltration, current and historical, into the underground culture we love. In an introductory essay to a new Quietus series, Dylan Miller explains why we're doing it.

Oh, just got a copy myself. Not sure when I’ll get to it though.

Edit: turns out there’s also a play based on it being performed in my neighborhood. Just grabbed tickets.

I've long held that Peter Murphy was a genius who would never be properly understood in his own lifetime, but until I read this headline I had had no idea just how influential he has been.

And I did read it whole. Interesting and I can't find why it cause such madness on left-side? Like some issues that he presented in book published in 2015 wasn't true (sponsoring thus influencing on many schools and universities, sport clubs and so).
Houellebecq certainly knows what's going around, can read emotion of mob and sociteties, he can write some catching phrases, cynical, sarcatis as true.

Hope it's a copy with Rage in it, he let it fall out of print a few years back, no new edition of The Bachman Books contains Rage and I very much doubt you'll see a new edition of it ever again.
