“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Hyperobjects in Newsweek

Also, thanks for the list of books a few posts back. I'm going to send the whole thing to my university librarian here and order them all in.

I wish "Newsweek" was still what it was, but it's still an important moment. Crossing over that particular boundary is very difficult. Enjoy the moment, take good care, wear a helmet. And congratulations.

Copy of Hyperobjects arrived recently - allow me to say this in the most hyperbolic and commodity fetishistic way possible, this is the coolest thing I've bought in YEARS. Tim, you are one hell of an object. Your writing on MBV is also spectacular, someone should get you contributing music reviews somewhere.
