solids and liquids

Supper with Roy and Slav last night, then off to the Freddy Wood Theatre to hear Arjun Appadurai's talk "Solids and Liquids: Notes on the Materialities of Terror," which is part of larger series of talks on terror at UBC this fall. Interesting read on how the materials of everyday life, from toothpaste to shave cream, have become objects of anxiety.

Afterwards, downtown to the Brick House for the launch of the first Commodore book, Fred Booker's Adventures in Debt Collection. Exciting to see a slice of Black Western Canadian history come to life.
