Drove thru nj once. car broke down in the hood. three whites freaking out. this was before i became hoodwise.

anyway this dude shows up (african american) calms us down calls his friend who is a mechanic fixes our car on the spot for free.
Dude was a local councilman or some shit.
fuck preconception.

Elpho made a recent plug, if that's what you're referring to?

I've been wondering what to start on after a period of nothing, myself. It's currently a toss-up between The Trial and an extended version of Exodus with labeled diagrams.

I finished The Trial and it's like I GET IT but I don't GET IT you know what I mean

I felt better when I looked up analysis and found disagreement everywhere

Also I didn't know his books were all unfinished that's Punk

Also wondering how much is lost in translation for example the word he uses for Trial also means "process" but is not really used how it is in English to where it can mean "test"

As far as I understand at least maybe someone who knows languages better scolds me

i finished reading a house for mr. biswas a few weeks ago. it took me a while to get into but once i ran past the halfway mark or so i tore through the rest. paul theroux always talks about v.s. naipaul in his travel books so i gave it a shot. it was pretty funny, but in a cerebral, bemused chuckle sort of way. like, huh. that is some funny stuff.

then i read drinking: a love story, which was great.

now i'm close to finishing every song ever and his interpretations of music can feel so abstract to me, but it's pretty interesting. i haven't heard a lot of the reference material, though. maybe it would make more sense once i listen to that.

it's a compelling book for drinkers and abstainers alike.

I'm reading Bruce Campbell's new memoir. The best parts are the non-film related stuff. Like, just shit about bombing around in the backwoods of Oregon in his old truck and skunks sneaking in through his cat door and whatnot.
