Four weeks on Monday everything will be over. Well, University will be over. I’m in an essay-oriented state of limbo for the time being, which is acceptable, and with 6’000 words of the 10’000 written, I’m feeling good about it. This weekend I’m turning to Fredric Wertham’s Seduction of the Innocent to explain the grand hammering the comic book industry took in the 50s, before putting it to bed for a couple of weeks as I plough through Modern Film Theory (Film as an artistic vs philosophical discourse), Photography U.S.A. (Mythmaking in Gonzo, the AMMO press book of Hunter Stockton Thompson’s photography) and Movie Music (the diegetic and non-diegetic disctinction).

In other news, the flat hunt continues. This may worry me if we don’t find somewhere in the next two weeks, but I’m quite blase about it at the moment. I also visited the new soungenerator offices, and got a peek at the soon-to-be-relaunched website, both of which are swish, crisp, easy to navigate and terribly cool. Very much looking forward to starting that off properly in May.

I’m no longer heading to ATP, but am heading up the the Bristol comics convention on May 12th and 13th, and the Bestival line-up continues to look brilliant – more announcements coming from that camp this weekend I believe. But in the meantime, the internet continues to happen, so here are some links:

* “The trouble with being human” an essay on ‘liquid modernity’ and relationships

* Resonant Frequency #45 (@ Pitchforkmedia.com) – an editorial about mystery in music
