Q: What does a cereal killer eat for breakfast? 



A: 

.


The bike ride must have done me some good as I'm now limbering up for a long overdue post bringing The Reader up to date with matters pertaining to Kulchur.

Thusly ...

On & off the shelf

Godard, MacCabe
Life of Samuel Beckett, Knowlson

Clark Coolidge - esp. Own Face, Solution Passage, Baffling Means
W C Williams - Spring and All
Devin Johnston, Tim Atkins & Miles Champion - various
Graham Foust - To Anacreon in Heaven and Other Poems
Gabriel Gudding - Defence of Poetry, Rhode Island Notebook
Ron Silliman - The New Sentence & then a quick dip into Kit Robinson, Lyn Hejinian, Hannah Weiner, Jack Spicer
Lisa Jarnot - that selected volume which packs well into a virtually full suitcase

(picked up in the Reading Oxfam & other affordable repositories of sustenance)
W Lewis - Apes of God
J Austen - Letters
Raoul Vaneigem - The Movement of the Free Spirit
Joyce - Ulysses (pretty fresh annotated ed.)

(saved from the school staff room bin - shameful!)
The List Poem, Larry Fagin
The Alphabet of Trees (A Guide to Nature Writing), McEwen & Statman

Norman Mailer - Mind of an Outlaw, Fire on the Moon
Sontag - various
Milam Kundera - Slowness
Henry Miller - Colossus of Marousi, Time of the Assassins

In & out & around the ears

Lennie Tristano / Lennie Tristano
Paul Bley / Play Blue
Art Pepper / The Rhythm Section
Zoot Sims / In Paris
Clifford Brown / Memorial Album
Cecil Taylor & Paul Bley Black Saint reissue box sets
Kerouac / Complete Collection on CD (at last!)

Nucleus / The Pretty Redhead (& playing right now - love it! - Snakehips Dream, Track 3, with John Marshall's drumming ... fabulous!)
Poliphony / Poliphony
Dave Holland / Prism

Philip Glass / Einstein on the Beach (the original & finally affordable)
Meredith Monk / Piano Songs, Dolmen Music, Book of Days (which is probably the best)
Vivaldi The Four Seasons recomposed by Max Richter (still not sure ...)

Darius Milhaud / Miscellany CD

Xenakis / Works for Orchestra (formidable ...)

Punk 45 There Is No Such Thing As Society anthology

Julia Holter (ah!) / Tragedy, Ekstasis, Eating the Stars, Loud City Song (most especially)
Linda Perhacs / Parallelograms (because Julia says so)
Laurel Halo / Chance of Rain (ditto)

Haydn (yes, really) / Six String Quartets (Takacs Qt), The Creation (Karajan), The London Symphonies (Sir Colin Davis) 

Before the eyes

Le Petit Soldat, Histoire d'Eau, Le Mepris, Bande a Part, Four Hundred Blows

(& which allows for a perfectly gratuitous picture of Anna Karina, JLG's Muse & proof that there's more to Denmark than Lego ...)



.

So that's that's the current syllabus. Students wishing to enrol should send see vees (no fees!) post haste to the Open Uni-Verse City where we're all perpetual undergraduates & Mr Gove is but a fictional grotesque consigned to the erratum pages. 

Tune in. Enjoy!
