So subverts what have you been reading recently?

Ive been reading a lot of time theory, philosophy and whatnot. Implication, raw data, data entry, assemblage anxiety, paradoxical fantasias, you know...a ton of bollocks very few people understand. 
Of course, i don't expect em to understand...I'm hardly Mr. Oxford Don by John Agard either.

In radio, I've been reading soma.fm Drone Zone like a triptych of the ASIP, Low Point and Kranky labels, fed into a monopoly radio station.
Best of all is being able to ask "Alexa, play Drone Zone"... and yes i love you very much

Dune: House Atreides. It's a prelude to Dune and enjoyable.

Just finished Tracey Thorn's Bedsit Disco Queen. Entertaining stuff. And inadvertently interesting (to me) that the music she particularly liked way back when was the music I particularly loathed...

Vic Godard's lounge version of Subway Sect.
Scritti Politti, after Green had kicked out the rest of the band.
Paul Weller, post The Jam
The fucking Smiths.

I still hate every one of those.

Anyone who genuinely hates someone personally needs to grow up and get over it. I don't mean you btw.

Me...I'm starting a crime thriller by Lee Child - 61 Hours. It's a Just Fiction Edition publisher book, in the multiple authors royalty deal I accepted themed on my obitu pbk.

I've also got Angels And Demons by Dan Brown next to the bed for when I feel better. The film was a good one.

Other wise...I'd be a dud for solitary confinement, I prefer solitude but need a daily walk at least, like a proper mutt.

that Grass types are only really affected in a "super effective" way by Fire types - in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, at least

Properly, I read a review of Pokémon Sword And Shield in GAME magazine for the Nintendo Switch

Does anyone have any experience with Audible or other audiobook services? Is it the best one for English literature?

I wonder whether or not the small subscription plan is worth it or not, how many titles are available for free, and if one credit per month will make one buy more audiobooks while waiting for free credits.

They are fronting a lot of political and ideological among their mainstream titles, and I want to know more about the depth of content provided before I sign up.

I want to use Audible for Western literature classics and philosophy, economics, history, etc.

Just finished "Failures of State" by Sunday Times journalists Jonathan Calvert & George Arbuthnott. 400 pages of investigative journalism cataloguing the utter uselessness of Boris Johnson and his government's handling of the pandemic. Essential reading for anyone who still has any doubts whatsoever about that.
