Eclectic Readings and Viewings

Things which kind of define and influence my thought and thinking. Some are things I return to over and over. Most are just things which make clear some important point. A number are heresy I play footsy with. The fictions tends to either summarize some aesthetic or be an ur-example in my imagination. If you read these things and synthesize them (and reject a goodly bit of), you may get a sense of what makes me tick. In general, YMMV.
