A Day in the Life

I'm starting to feel the pressure of fall semester (I start teaching on Tuesday), so blogging may vary over the next few days. Here are a few topics that I'd planned to write about that never quite became full blog entries:

On Francois' suggestion, I dove into my archives the other day to see what I was thinking about this time last year, and of course most of my thoughts were focused on teaching, but I was pleasantly surprised to come across a discussion from late last summer that addresses some of the questions raised recently in the anonymity discussion. I don't have anything particularly new to the current discussion, but it's interesting that it has re-emerged at the beginning of a new school year. Now I really should be organizing my syllabus or working on my Fight Club article.

While we're on the topic of the f word, you might enjoy this list of books that can allegedly induce a mindf*ck:

Personally, I think the list is too long. Less would have been more. And I certainly don't see why books like The Fountainhead, The God of Small Things, The Catcher in the Rye, and A Tale of Two Cities meet the mindf*ck standard.

Chris, that is a very odd list. I haven't read The Fountainhead, but the others seem to hardly qualify, especially Catcher, a novel that I'll begrudgingly admit to liking.

Cassie, thanks for the tip on the article. The story has been fascinating to follow.

Few of those books speak mindf*ck to me. _House of Leaves_ and _Neuromancer_, but... I don't know. I think the list is, as mentioned, too long.
