    Lovely moment last night with my son who is off to Warwick to study politics - we were going through his reading list and Mark's first book was on there as a recommendation. Nice to see his alma mater remembering its illustrious student but also nice to be able to pass the book on to my boy. I know - hideously sentimental and Mark would admonish me for such but, you know...

    I hope they dont turn him into a kurt cobain, ian curtis posterboy for depression and untimely death. Theres been worrying signs. His whole project was about finding the exit. I think we should continue that work. Find the way out of this impasse. It can be done.

    Very, very late to this. I haven't been on this site for years and randomly thought about Mark Fisher today only to learn the awful news. Like others, I came straight here. RIP

    It's nice to see this place still alive and kicking. Just logging back in has brought back fond memories of this forum, the wider music blogosphere that was so vital and where I was at that time of my life. Just wish it didn't take something so sad to trigger me to come back. RIP k-punk

    Reviewed in the New Yorker. He'd probably have resented the scent of affirmation, but it's always been my favorite magazine and I'm glad to see him in there.

    been reading his collected works, actually (how i came here). only ever checked out mark very recently, someone i didn't really know on twitter, shortly before i deactivated that account, dm'd me a copy of capitalist realism (deep assignment?). but it's been very weird to find the huge impact ccru and k-punk had on the music i love and online communities i've been in and out of and having been completely oblivious to it. i agree that his suicide makes 'the search for an exit' even more urgent. we all have to continue this project together, we can't rely on one figure to 'lead the way' for us.

    I read something on the 'Posthuman Gothic' in Pynchon last night and Mark's concept of 'the eerie' came up - https://thewastedworld.wordpress.com...thuman-gothic/

    Itís been over two years, and I still struggle to wrap my head around this. Itís oddóIíve struggled with depression myself, and I understand that it produces in the mind thoughts thatís makes no sense, or that are attached to reality but in a sort of sinister and incomplete way.

    But I keep returning to Mark, looking for some reason. I wonder what was going through his mind, whether it was general circumstances or something specific. Of course itís none of my business, and I really donít want to knowóbecause itís someone elseís life (the life of his family, those who knew him). But it does haunt me.
