This morning I have for you;
This paper on medieval concepts of stress & insomnia feels very timely, & super interesting looking at premodern conceptions of the body & nightmares & stress. Talks a little about ephialtes as well so I must link one of the best bands of all time.
I was reading something else on Invert journal but clocked this paragraph;
in Ray Filar’s text on wages for housework, labour & sex work which felt a bit On The Nose re: recent twitter discourse. The whole text is great tho & compares the (lack of) differences between the working particularities of prostitution as a result of it’s quasi-legal status & the casualisation of “legitimate” labour in the gig economy which now we might aswell just call ‘the economy’.
I v much enjoyed this episode of Buried in Space which was full to the brim w/ gold.
Finally finished watching Class Relations by Straub-Huillet which is based on Kafka’s Amerika & has our old pal Harun Farocki in the role of Delamarche. I don’t know if I can recommend it particularly in these circumstances but you make yr own mind up.
See u tomorrow for more friends, hope you’re well.
