My sister is a fan and she kind of converted me, it's not my strong suite but it's pretty deep politically, socially and spiritually. Before this one i only read La Fête de l'Insignifiance (The Festival of Insignificance) from him, he wrote it in french, i think he came hear to escaped Staline's regime, he's fucking with him in this novel)

I lost my entire collection of books. Only thing that's left is a bunch of Robert anton wilson, which I grew very bored of halfway thru each book during a bout of discordian obsession :'(

My use of "failed entertainment' when describing infinite jest previously was an attempted low-grade sardonic-ironic wordplay, using the books original working title. Ive come to realize the novel Infinite Jest is simply too next-level for my education level. Hopefully someday I will be able to appreciate the brilliance of the book in a manner DFW would've respected. a failed post about a fialed entertainment. Apologies.

I read "The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom" a while back and I am trying to be impeccable with my word moving forward and trying to refrain from sarcasm or self-deprecating humor.


Next book - Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor

A New York Times Bestseller

A Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of 2020

Named a Best Book of 2020 by NPR

“A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe—and how we’ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time.” —Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love


No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly.


There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat twenty-five thousand times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences.

Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren’t found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe.

Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is.

Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again. < Amazon Book description
