Screams of Reason

Wednesday, 21 August 2002

i’m about 75% through Screams of Reason by David Skal. Its mostly about Hollywood’s fas­ci­na­tion with mad sci­ence. Its ok. but a good shot in the dark by my mother who bought it for me. i can see many dif­fer­ent tracks where ex­pan­sion and deeper aca­d­e­mic dis­course would add some in­sights but it is pretty hard to find good aca­d­e­mic texts on film since most are tar­geted to hob­by­ists and film buffs in­stead of aca­d­e­mics. yes i’m pompous. fuck off.

3 days till back to school.
