Advanced Praise for ‘A Brief History…’
“Even after he drugged me I refused to have sex with the author due to the perspicacious mendacity of the contents within.”
-Sarah J in Sweden
“After I read this I vomited a little in my mouth. I placed that vomit on a baking sheet, sprinkled with some hazelnuts and cinnamon and baked for 10 minutes at 325 F and served to my guests with a cup of free-range Earl Grey tea I named ‘gastro-biscotti’
“One could open to a random page of Hegel and find more clarity and Hemingway like gift for brevity than this garbled, extraneous and all together purposefully peripatetic tosh.
-Peter J. Ph.D student harangued by author at a coffee shop on 6th Ave. and West 9th St. (great biscotti however)
“The proximate truth of perception is that it is the object which is an appearance, and that the object’s reflection in self is on the contrary a self-subsistent inward and universal. The consciousness of such an object is intellect. This inward, as we called it, of the thing is, on one hand, the suppression of the multiplicity of the sensible, and, in that manner, an abstract identity: on the other hand, however, it also for that reason contains the multiplicity, but as an interior ‘simple’ difference, which remains self-identical in the vicissitudes of appearance. The simple difference is the realm of the laws of the phenomena – a copy of the phenomenon, but brought to rest and universality.”
-Hegel ‘PHENOMENOLOGY OF MIND’
“This book is more inane and an insult to BurningMan and the human spirit in general than the year we had that stupid fucking Green Man theme.”
Larry Harvey is not quoted as saying.
“This is the best book I have ever read while smoking brave amounts of DMT”
“Even with the copious reference to bacon and other swine related products I couldn’t help but feel a little something died in me after I read this book.”
“I had no idea about the fascinating history of a great event in American let alone Babylonian history of the world – on par with the Old Testament and Readers Digest. BTW Where is Babylonia – upstate NY?”
“If I had known about the candied bacon recipe back in 1897 eating swine definitely would have been higher on the agenda for the Zionist Congress. I can’t believe the Burn was held in Bern that year – 20 miles away and I missed it. I heard from Hannah (Arendt) it was a good burn.”
