these are my favourite twitter accounts at the moment. in the hallowed tradition of anglo/american cranks. part bullshit, part autism, part genius, part mental illness

these people can never be role models. it would zap the fun

one reason i find them interesting is that they read books. stan is interesting because he refuses to read books but that makes him a representative member of his generation. the pursuit of knowledge without reading

nobody here with the possible exception of limburger reads for the simple reason that it has become virtually impossible

he talks about blake who he might of read and pound and olson who he probably hasnt read. all of which endears him to me. hes not heard of prynne.

i'd be surprised because they strike me as too unsocialised, too volatile, too egotistical... but who knows
