What you reading

Well Egon has gone underground since then and apparently he sample hordes and his contracts aren’t great for the artists but that’s all come out since the drama started. Madlib wants nothing to do with him anymore and they were partners for eons.

I enjoyed reading ‘Other Minds’ - the 2016 book about the evolution of intelligence in octopuses and other cephalopods. There was a little surge in interest in studying them with some cool programmes on tv.

It didn’t cross my mind that they could be given ecstasy.

It’s obvious now that I think about it.

I’ve got that book too. Fascinating creatures and very intelligent.

Not through the entire Rubin thing yet but a lot of wishy-washy mantra’s & not a single anecdote of him working with certain artists. I guess this makes it a more timeless book in the vein of some of his favourites (Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tao Te Ching,…)

Was hoping for a section about Slayer barfing in the studio or deep conversations with Johnny Cash.

I notice that a new Crooked Man track went up on Apple Music yesterday (and presumably Spotify, etc too) called Love & Resistance.

It seems to be a new version of a tune he did a few years ago as Tooth Faeries.

I’ve just been listening to that. It’s great.

New Bret Easton Ellis definitely soon. Got an alert from uk.bookshop.org which if you haven’t checked it out yet already it’s a way better option than Amazon (for uk users of that forum)

Just started HH’s Long Relationships and loving it so far.

Reading Lori by Robert Bloch, the author behind Psycho. Maybe not his strongest outing but it’s got a strong identity, filmic, a bit like a failed screenplay. I’m only about fifty pages in so maybe it’ll get stronger, too.

I’m just finishing this up. Good read if anyone has any interest in the Iraq War.

A great read on why all (online) platforms go to shit in the end

that was a good read - not really anything i didn’t already know or suspect, but elucidated elegantly.

Great post - here is an archive linked for those who don’t want to sign up or are paywalled: https://web.archive.org/web/20230125000551/https://www.wired.com/story/tiktok-platforms-cory-doctorow/
