Hello there.

I haven't been around here much! Perhaps that will change. And then again not. Anyway, here are two things:

1. I'm reading, among other things, the abridged version of William Vollman's exploration of violence, Rising Up and Rising Down. It is very, very depressing.

2. There is a new episode of Wasted Words, America's favorite drunken podcast, available for your listening pleasure. I am a guest. Please enjoy it.

My wife, peach that she is, bought me the complete hard bound set of Rising Up and Rising Down. It is an astonishing work on so many levels. A juggernaut of academic social science (not socialism) put together in ways that are both exhausting and efficient. I think I made it through the first two volumes.

It made me want to go to sleep forever and withdraw from the human race, but more aggressively and with more finality.

And then I Googled Vollman, and then I found the McSweeney's "Oral History Of Rising Up Rising Down" and that was a very engaging piece, so thanks.
