Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil (by Alain Badiou)
I know it doesn’t make sense because you’re in a classroom while recording this, but I always imagine you smoking a corn-cob pipe in a tweed jacket. Awesome stuff, and I’d love to hear you do an analysis of Evangelion one day. I wonder what your mighty brain would make of that rabbit-hole.
Haha, you’re too kind Marshal. I still need to get around to finishing Evangelion, but I liked what I saw. Are you on the forums?
I was around on the forums for a bit when Vassals started but I’ve mostly dropped off. I’m not a big forum person, mainly because I have a massive back-log of content I need to get to (not to mention the pile of shame), and talking on forums just tends to add more things to the pile! It’s very exhausting. But yeah, you should catch up on Eva and then watch the ’97 film. I’d love to hear what you have to say about it. Eva is one of those shows that I never get tired of hearing what people have to say about it.
