researching. it’s something i love and hate. i love having an excuse to read heaps of books on arcane subjects. i hate trying to do this while holding down a day job.

i’m currently reading about new religious movements of the 60s and 70s. could there be anything more fun?

plowing through ed sanders’ the family. a thick book written in a strange personal style. pretending objectivity? not ed. his highly subjective writing style constantly reminds you that you are reading the history of the manson clan through a filter. still, a fascinating study.
