Reading Derrida for the first time…

Nerds Have More Fun

Is akin to watching “Fall Out,” (the final episode in The Prisoner. It blows your mind.
However, unlike “Fall Out,” Derrida lacks two important things:
Cathartic release.
Patrick McGoohan.

This is why I should not be reading theory early in the morning. I’m not even reading Derrida right now–I’m reading Althusser and Zizek. But Zizek’s the man, so its okay.
