Hello and greetings from Canada! Where the maple syrup flows freely over the cured pig belly year-round.
Your cultural requirements for this week are:
THE INFORMATION by James Gleick (A History, A Theory, A Flood). It’s literally a history of our concept of “information” and how we transmit and @ measure it, as well as how it has transformed human society. Some nice non-fiction there for you, because you sounded enthusiastic when I mentioned it. The very beginning where Gleick explains about African drumming and information redundancy is killer and made me realllly excited.
Have you been given Beck to listen to yet? If not, then it’s definitely got to be, oh look - THE INFORMATION. (Would you believe me if I said this was a total fluke?) This is definitely one of my favourite albums and I know you’re going to love it.
If you HAVE had this one already, then let me know. I’ll be REALLY disappointed and then I’ll find you something else.
