Books I Read This Summer

I’m going to keep a note of books I read this Summer. Books that are read in full and not just an odd chapter here or there for college.

As I read more I’ll update the post. Here’s the list for starters:

Dracula: Bram Stoker
The Kool Aid Acid Test: Tom Woolfe
Convergence Culture: Henry Jenkins
On Photography: Susan Sontag
Joshua Ferris: Then We Came To the End
Ways of Seeing: John Berger
Media Control: Noam Chomsky
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Wolves at the Gate: Goddard/Jeanty/Whedon
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Time Of Your Life: Whedon/Moline/Loeb

Overload

What a week! It’s all busy busy and this weekend wasn’t any different. I attended a two day training/seminar with Larry Jordan who told us all about Final Cut Pro and all that surrounds it.. Really interesting. www.larryjordan.biz Two eight hour days on a Saturday and Sunday though kinda make my head sore! Need a days sleep! and some time to let all the information sink into my little head!

I’ve added two pages.. Writings and Remediation… just bits and bobs I write that you might like to read, like my Little piece on Pere Lechaise, Paris  and a 1500 word essay on Remediation: From The Printing Press to Blogging.. any comments are welcome. Would love to hear opinions on this. The more I read on the subject the more interested I become. I think Henry Jenkins is one very clued in man! Read the essay and check out this blog! www.henryjenkins.org

This week is Rag Week in college and DCUFm is on air.. should be good – I may also be doing an interview this week with DJ Flip and Stretch from Foreign Legion (Oakland, CA, USA) who are about to go on a European Tour! Stretch has the coolest SF Giants hat I had ever seen!  Which reminds me that Spring Training isn’t too far away! I can feel my insomnia kicking in!
