Apologies btw for not posting more recently.
The US equity market is doing very little, the US economy isn't generating much consequential news, and gold seems to be unable to drag GDX with it.
Meanwhile, I've been reading ahead for next year's classes. I'm very interested in taking transportation geography after reading the textbooks this summer, and I also want to get ahead of the curve in econometrics.
I've also been reading Kim Gordon's Girl in a Band, and have these thoughts:
1) It's never a good idea to write a book right after your marriage breaks up.
2) She talks a lot more about art and stuff than she does Sonic Youth.
3) Apparently Michael Gira is a cunt, well colour me surprised!
4) Goddamn it those chapters are short.
Generally, despite me liking Sonic Youth more than Everything but the Girl, I vastly preferred Tracey Thorn's autobiography and would recommend it over Kim Gordon's book. Girls to the Front was also a better bio on girls in bands.
