(no subject)

Had a decent advisor meeting, got some dinner, and pissed away the evening finishing reading "As Bees in Honey Drown" and wandering around Hillman library and reading about McLuhan. Maybe I picked the wrong books, but they made him seem like kind of a wanker. I can buy into his distinctions like "cool" vs. "hot" and "light-through" vs. "light-on" being meaningful distinctions by themselves, but I don't really follow why one side or the other of such continuums should cause people to be more engaged in a medium.
