Books at my desk at CMJ waiting to be returned to the New York Public Library after being partially read:

Image Music Text – Roland Barthes
Writing And Difference – Jacques Derrida
some Lester Bangs book
Illuminations – Walter Benjamin

Also, just turned in my Liars review to PopMatters. I’m not feeling great about it, but one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to let some things go, because in the past I’ve held on to writing for so long, never satisfied with it.
