I wonder now how closely the vehemence of Mark's defense of music and art from a given period coincided with the success or not of his career at that time. Not that this would undermine it at all, but I did always wonder where the energy for those extremes of assertion came from.

Cheers - my mind is still absolutely boggled that this place is almost twenty years old. Glad it's still here.

Another thing I wish I'd appreciated about Mark at the time is that all his talk of bodies without organs, Deleuze, Rhizomes etc. wasn't an act of spontaneous intellectual creation, but him riffing on his PhD thesis. But I suppose putting up a scholarly wall was at least part of the point for him (though he also lowered the drawbridge often enough).

Guess this is the best place to put it. A question I had to myself the other day: did Land and Fisher keep up any sort of relationship (whether working or just talking like friends) after Land went full right-wing?
