Found in Office

  • One Chemical Brothers CD, “Dig Your Own Hole”. Condition: Possibly playable.
  • Several more issues of “Out” magazine.

So… “lifestyle” magazines and techno music…

    What I want to know is who forgot to return this library book we found in the bookshelf, “Scarcity & Modernity” before they graduated. I assume they had to pay for it out of their student account.

  2. Vincent says:


    There is, in fact, still a copy of “Who’s Deceiving the Liberals” on the shelf.

  3. Sean says:

    I bet it was Aaron Polk. I’ve seen him reading that on multiple occasions.

  4. Niedermeyer says:

    You have to admire the, um, dedication it takes to bring the political discourse back to Euclidian geometry. I had never heard of LaRouche until I moved into that damn office, and his work definitely provided some much-needed entertainment.

    My personal fave is “Who’s Deceiving The Liberals” which we got a whole box of from some organization or another. The short answer to the titular question: Satan. I put the box outside the office with a “free humor” sign, and most of them were taken. I really hope we’ve held on to at least one copy.

  5. Sean says:

    “In order to keep the nation-state strong he proposes eliminating Karl Rove and Jane Fonda.”

    I’m ok with this one.

  6. Ian says:

    I think I’m responsible for the LaRouche book, but I can’t take credit for the Out or Faith No More.

    And really, is there a more hilarious title anywhere than Children of Satan III: The Sexual Congress for Cultural Fascism? From a review:

    Decrying the “dumbing down,” of America that has turned a once healthy and Aristotle-quoting citizenry into a reality TV-watching herd of “human cattle,” for the meat-packing convenience of Cheney et al., President LaRouche’s education revitalization program would begin with mass book/film/CD burning and university shuttering.

    And then, education would be reconstructed along the basic ideas of the Pythagoreans, rejecting utterly the beast-man inducing philosophies of the Stoics, Eleatics, and those damned radical Euclidians–whose flawed geometry, Larouche says, was employed many centuries later to bolster the Cartesian ploy known as the a priori universe and then, aided and abetted by Thomas Hobbes, who “bans classical irony,” the CCF hypnotized baby boomers spawned Dick Cheney. This gives rise to post-Classical irony, which LaRouche for some reason fails to mention.

    LaRouche’s vision is for a strong America rooted in a well-led mercantile class and the traditional American values founded in Renaissance Italy. The nation-state, he says, is the best form of political organization humanely possible, so long, of course, as LaRouche is running it according to proper geometric and artistic principles. In order to keep the nation-state strong he proposes eliminating Karl Rove and Jane Fonda.

    To save ourselves from the fascists we have to start burning books. Connect the dots, man!

    It’s all Ted’s fault.

    Well, you already have alcohol…

  9. Vincent says:

    This is turning into one kinky after-hours club!

  10. CJ Ciaramella says:

    Don’t forget the Larouche book and the blowgun.

    Oh, and the Faith No More CD.
