Re: ramdom thought thread revival

Oh also White Sox games are criminally underrated. So you can get pretty good seats to see the best team in baseball for like $25/ticket and its crazy easy to get to Comiskey on the CTA.

Re: ramdom thought thread revival

I'm a big fan and longtime resident of Chicago, but I honestly don't feel like its all that interesting of a city to visit. The exception is probably our restaurant scene, so I'd recommend planning your days around where you want to eat. Recently, I've eaten really well at Avec, s.k.y., Testaccio, C...

Re: theory (from books)

1) What is the 'ideological project' of western academic theory and what does it mean for a theory to be 'effective'? (Note how unconsciously we measure the 'effectiveness' of a thing by quantifying its 'ends' or outcomes. Was May '68 a failure because it didn't radically alter the politics of Fran...

Re: theory (from books)

Reading Capital is great, but Harvey's original work is at least as worthwhile, I think. Unlike a lot of marxists, he seems to really care about clarity. I remember reading Brief History of Neoliberalism around the same time as Hardt and Negri's Empire and found it to be much more potent at about a ...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

For the doubters, this is the whole process. WD40 is itself an oil but i guess it like activates other oils so the soap can take them both out? Which, like, crazy

Re: the death and life of great cities

does anyone have any resources on comparing urbanization with colonization? e.g. wealth gap and resource and labor flows between rural and urban areas. imo just as an observation it seems like cities extract resources and labor from rural areas in a manner not unlike that of rich countries extracti...

The Furniture Game

What furniture do you like? What furniture do you hate? Is finding furniture worth the time money and effort? Even if no one ever comes over? We just bought these lounge chairs for our new apartment. The seller is holding them until we move in May but I can't wait to sit in them. https://i.imgur.com...

Re: Ramdom fashion thoughts

I was annoyed that Nike didn't seem to be able to deal with the problem by implementing, for example, captcha checks on their websites. But after reading about the lengths that re-sellers are going to (and the amount of money they're willing to put into this), I don't know how Nike can solve this p...
