    vim, you're just trolling now, right? i know i'm just a dull blockhead but that first sentence alone elicited an eye roll. i'm sure it's not at all the pretentious word salad that it appears to be, care to explain it for the common man?

    For someone affiliated with arts and such, Josef K's cardboard lacks a bit in aesthetics, though.

    Yeah, he could have brightened it up with some colourful fonts or a bit of clip-art or something.

    This one would've been good:

    ...but as Robartes delves further into the system’s origin, he discovers that the Cracow book (the Speculum Angelorum et Hominis by one ‘Giraldus’, published in 1594) recapitulates the belief system of an Arabian sect known as the Judwalis or ‘diagrammatists’, who in turn derived it from a mysterious work—now long lost—containing the teachings of [...] Luka, a philosopher at the ancient Court of Harun Al-Raschid, although rumour has it that [...] Luka got it from a desert djinn.
    Huh, figures.

    Oh yeah, I forgot the title but I remember you talking about Yeats. Might look out for a copy once I've read 'you's book about psychopaths.

    Hey Leo. Not trolling. Ireland's article is very much in the Ccru style a la Land, K-Punk, Sadie Plant, etc, etc -- I suppose it's a bit of a tribute. I thought it was a nice counterpoint to the Guardian article, which doesn't really touch on its philosophical side in much depth.

    I always thought CCRU came across as a bit pleased with itself. All that making up personas and words and alluding to things.

    It was all stuff that I liked (jungle, gothic, lovecraft, occulture, sci-fi, subversion) but I hated the obscurantist style of it. I always associated them with people who would tell you in the 1990s that it was OK if you couldn't understand Deleuze and Guattari (you thicko), you should just let the words wash over you. They were mainly a lovely bunch of people when I met them though.

    There's a bunch of their stuff here https://libcom.org/library/ccru-writings-1997-2003

    And that's the pity of it. I'm sure the article Vimothy quoted had sth interesting to say, so why hide behind the status defences of whatever form of academese that was?
