My first real introduction to Sun Ra was through the film Space is the Place. I scoured the Internet, and one day made a request on the Stairway to Heaven music forum. One poster, Mingus, responded--as the downloads fell through cyberspace like the veils of Salome. At the time, I was wondering the most effective way to make the music and information available. That was long before I participated in any blogs, and had a much stronger resentment to the form. I still am skeptical about blogging and the importance of my tastes, yet I also share a classical music blog here.
The first version of this site was hosted on blogger, as I have no knowledge of html or web design. I eventually moved the site to Google Pages, as I still have no knowledge of html, but found the site slightly more suitable for my vision.
I consider myself a student of comparative literature and literary theory, for what this is worth. I am an amateur book collector, interested especially in the literature of the insane and delusional. I am a devoted reader of Marxist-Leninism, with plans to do something with that knowledge--a la the Theses on Feurbach.
