Listened to No Cities Left

Listened No Cities Left from Tumblr

Initial Release Date: April 12, 2003

I was super into this album in 2004/5ish. I haven’t especially liked anything they put out in the past ten years, and haven’t listened to this album in its entirety since 2007, per last.fm. But, their email list is so infrequent I’m apparently still on it 😂 Got an email about the lead singer’s new solo project, didn’t like it, but got the inkling to give this a listen and I’m digging it tonight.

 

Liking Warm and Sunny Days but it doesn’t have a music video 😉

Read So Many Books

Read So Many Books

Join the conversation! In So Many Books, Gabriel Zaid offers his observations on the literary condition: a highly original analysis of the predicament that readers, authors, publishers, booksellers, librarians, and teachers find themselves in today—when there are simply more books than any of us can contemplate.

Generally interesting, two or three essays that felt outdated. He has a refreshing non-preciousness about books while also clearly loving them.

Diversity and uniqueness of reading

The uniqueness of each reader, reflected in the particular nature of his personal library (his intellectual genome), flourishes in diversity.

I like the idea of an intellectual genome, and the phenome is your thoughts from your reading.

There are more books to contemplate than stars in a night on the high seas. In this immensity, how is a reader to find his personal constellation, those books that will put his life in communication with the universe?
