"A classic is something that everyone wants to have read and nobody wants to read." --Mark Twain

Bored lately with what I have been reading. Mostly open source software manuals, web pages, how-tos. Not finding any fiction that pulls me off the chair. I remember a friend of mine talking about this happening for him with music. Going through phases where he's burnt out, everything sounding the same, nothing fresh. He told me that when this happens he returns to jazz and classical music.

Recently I watched that Crispin Glover movie "Bartleby". It's based on a novel by Herman Melville, the guy who wrote "Moby Dick". He wrote a bunch of books, among them: "Bartleby The Scrivener --A Story of Wall Street". The movie was strange, cryptic and interesting enough to make me want to read the book. A quick read, more of a novella really. The movie a faithful adaptation. About a guy that works in a legal office in the age before copy machines. He spends his days copying documents longhand. Then one day his boss asks him to do something and he replies: "I would prefer not to." (wouldn't we all...) The book has a flavor somewhere between Kafka and Dickens.

Good movie, good book. And it reminded me of my friend and what he had said about music. Sometimes when you're burnt out on contemporary things it's good to remember that life is a continuum of experience. We have a tendency to think (at least I do) that only contemporary things are of value, or at least to get caught up in them. Marketing has a good deal to do with this. We live in a world where we are constantly off balance. Be. Consume. Live. Nothing without this. Nothing without that.
