Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

Second read: Read this over a weeklong break of long walks, silence, and privacy. The book is no less forceful, vigorous, entertaining; I felt no less provoked to live well.

First read: I respect Taleb more than most. His life's work, as a writer, has...more

“The Runaway Five's obvious influence is The Blues Brothers. During localization, their black and white suits were made more colorful to avoid legal action from Universal Pictures or the film's producers. When I told my wife Aviva about this, she admitted she had never seen The Blues Brothers film. Having grown up on a steady diet of Saturday Night Live-spawned movies, I told her that her innocence here was blasphemous. That night, we marveled together at James Brown's hair.”
Ken Baumann, EarthBound

“If we were to take EarthBound's early hours as material evidence of Shigesato Itoi's impressions of American culture, we would have to consider cruel parents, small-town gangs, abusive cops, weak-willed politicians, usurious property owners, and murderous religious cults as the case.

This does not seem inaccurate.”
Ken Baumann, EarthBound

“People are screwed up in this world. I'd rather be with someone screwed up and open about it than somebody perfect and ready to explode.”
