    I think I'm just more annoyed by condescension than you are.

    Didn't Death of the Author inspire Derrida

    I think Derrida mentions Death of the Author in Differance, but, I don't know if it inspired him necessarily, but I am no expert on the topic.

    I don't think so. Barthes was more of a contemporary of Derrida - Death of the Author came out in like 68 I believe, loooooooong after Derrida was already established.

    Uh it was when he came to play with Electric Six and another band at FSU

    Was a fucking blast.

    Oh damn, he did the same thing at Warped Tour '04 at Gilette.

    Though the best thing he ever did was rock on MTV while in a fucking wheelchair. That was hysterical and awesome at the same time.

    67, which I only know because I have the wiki page open for it. :mrgreen:

    Edit: And Differance came out in 63...so...it couldn't have referenced Death of the Author, I must be getting things muddled up.

    I sincerely don't have a problem with you having strong opinions. Seriously. Especially since the opinions themselves seem to be well-informed.

    But this sense that those of us who don't agree with you or who like certain bands/books/movies/whatever that you consider "unacceptable" are somehow lesser beings permeates almost all of your posts on these subjects. That's what really annoys me.

    So consider the following factors:

    1.) I have $6k in student loans (a federally consolidated loan for which I meet the minimum every month)
    2.) I have $5.1k owed directly to my prior university from which I received no credits, which I am seriously delinquent on but which they don't send to collections I guess because they're a university.
    3.) I'm 21 and I don't make very much money
    4.) I live in PA
    5.) We're in a recession

    Should I go to PSU? I feel like going to a larger school that allows me to take out loans for dorms (like Penn State) would be wise because a.) I'd be working towards a degree, b.) I'd have more free money to pay my active, interest-bearing debt with my old university, and c.) I'd be able to defer my federally consolidated loan while at PSU.

    Thoughts?
    Unless you plan to lie on your application, you'll have to disclose that you attended the prior university, as well as provide transcripts. The new university most likely won't admit you, knowing you owe the prior one 5 grand.

    Man, I hadn't even considered that. Shit.

    Could have just been that Death and Difference were published the same year and I made some sort of chronology for them.

    What the fuck difference was published in 63?

    Sorry it comes off that way. I'll keep that in mind. It's more just that in the fields that interest me I am pretty knowledgeable, and those fields tend to be ones were people aren't too informed but are nevertheless both interested in and unwilling to have their opinions challenged. Basically, people don't want their opinions on books and art challenged AT ALL, and they are begrudging to think their philosophies can be incoherent.

    I honestly and sincerely hope that people call me out whenever I might be saying something that they have evidence to the contrary. Because I want to be better.

    Universities tend to be very willing to work out payment plans with you. It can't hurt to at least call and see if you can set up something you can afford. At least then you'd be current, and able to apply to new schools.

    Yeah we decided to do a New Jersey location because it would be the easiest for the greatest majority of people. The concert is in June, tickets cost between 39 and 59 dollars before any fees that they might decide to tack on. If you weren't listening to any other music at the time you could acquaint yourself pretty well to NIN before the concert.

    We'll know more when Mike returns and I get a chance to talk to him about it.

    Opinions on books i understand if the book is not fiction or espousing some stupid arguments or whatever but

    art?

    art is completely subjective and essentially undefinable. Half of art itself, especially contemporary art, is between the work and the viewer. It's inherently incoherent.
