Overwhelmed by the start of school.

Today reread Basho's the Narrow Road for class on Tuesday.

Then finished up Joshua Clover's book on The Matrix. Somewhat cutting, somewhat sweet essay. I enjoyed reading it. It felt smart. And I thought it negotiated that line between being a fan and being a critic interestingly.

Over the last week have been reading Nato Thompson's and Gregory Scholette's The Interventionists. Nice survey of various forms of activist art. Had Suzanne Lacy and a bunch of her collaborators visit in my other class so have been thinking a lot about what is to be done. Her work left me very confused. Lots of issues. Not sure how I felt about it all.
