THE DICKHEAD SONG (Revenge Song) by Miles Betterman
By last summer, evidence of Loughner's increasingly deteriorating mental state was littered across the electronic worlds he inhabited. Finally, another regular on the site wrote back that "I think you're frankly schizophrenic, and no that's not an amateur opinion and not intended as an uninformed or insulting remark. I really do care. Seek help before you hurt yourself or others or start taking your medications again, please. Loughner, to put it lightly, had issues.
We often clamor for tales of debauchery, angst and torment in the lives of writers and artists we admire, as it seems to some to be "romantic," to reveal the turmoil driving the art. In Dick we may not find such truths to be so edifying because his art was so imbued with an ethic of caring and respect for all living things, but we must also see that the android, the creature without empathy for others and whom Dick feared and deplored, was an ct of Dick himself.

I was a friend to him when he was in Vancouver, and I understand I am named in the book.

I sold a letter from him a while back to pay bills. I think I had another letter but I do not know where it might be. I would love to read it again. To me he was kind, and enjoyed coming to and sitting in one particular chair at my house, and listening to stories and then he would tell them again and spin them to PKD. Hi Bev, I run this blog. I would love to talk to you a bit more Post a Comment. Photo by Philip K Dick Linda Levy has placed her entire correspondence with PKD for sale on.
She's also written up a very extensive recollection of her times with Phil.
Her unflinching portrayal of PKD in the early s is incredibly detailed and she writes extensively about both his charm and the deep psychic pain he seemed to be in. Check out the lot here and read the. One of the most interesting items in the lot is the letter Linda wrote to PKD before they met, when he was still in X-Kalay in Vancouver.

May 03, Unless you follow the world of feminist science fiction academia closely, you may not have already heard that author and critic Joanna Russ passed away last week after suffering a series of strokes (sound familiar?). Her relevance to the life and work of PKD is limited (at least here in this post) to her absolute hatred of Dick's anti-abortion story "The Pre-Persons."Author: Ragle Gumm.
Linda took it upon herself to write Phil. While it's impossible to ever really 'know' Philip K Dick from this vantage point 26 years after his death, after much study I am starting to get a sense for the guy. And I know this letter must have totally blown his mind click images to enlarge : Can you imagine PKD's mood upon reading that letter? After he read it, he asked McNelly to have Linda pick him up at the airport natch.
He later described Linda waiting for him at the terminal in LAX as 'destiny in a mini-skirt. Then there was the copy of Philip K. Posted by Ragle Gumm at PM. Newer Post Older Post Home.

Jan 13, Sadly, it is becoming increasingly clear that Jared Loughner, the mentally disturbed man who shot Congresswomen Giffords and a whole bunch of other people in Tucson last week, was a Philip K Dick fan (Though he does not list any PKD books in his favorite books section of a profile page) In yesterday's Washington Post a story recounts Loughner's contact with fringe metalstringsound.com: Ragle Gumm.
Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom. I haven't seen anything in his forum posts or youtube that show that PKD was his "favorite writer". For a change, I'll be brief. I don't agree with the comment that Palin's remarks could inspire people like Loughner. I don't think things work like that, period. As for Podhoretz's view of what people who live in a disordered reality maybe he's thinking of the denizens of the beltway are susceptible to in literature, it sounded like it referred to all fiction.
Gosh, I like Greg Bear, I'd better be careful. When I was 16 or 17, I had this most interesting class in HS, in which we got to 'study' various nifty things totally inappropriate thank God for a standard college prep state education. One of the subjects was the book Psycho Cyberneticswhich I was fascinated with briefly at the time.

I discover some 35 or so years later that James Earl Ray was wandering around from sleezy motel to sleezy motel, carting a copy of that book with him wherever he went. Indeed, he would have been doing this about a year before my own interest in the book. Fancy that. As if the Arizona event was not bad enough, we get to submerge ourselves in flaky theories in the aftermath and who knows how such constructs will be used by various political forces with agendas.
Maybe this is a conspiracy to discredit PKD and writers like him. Could Loughner have been a Manchurian Candidate? We may never know. Let's just hope there won't be any bans on his books in the near future.
Hopefully, Phil's name won't be scathed any longer by being tied to this creep. He would vehemently decry the violence and torment that Loughner has inflicted upon all those involved. I once knew a man who worked at a McDonald's and thought that when his coworkers called out the numbers of the orders they were talking about him in code. If he'd seen some videos on YouTube about Happy Meals being left on shelves for years without any sign of decay, maybe he'd have shot up the place.
The books were dangerous, it was decided. Not because the words in those pages inspired revolt, or contained recipes for bombs, or rally cries to spree kill. The books were dangerous, it was decided by a few for the unrequested behalf of the many because they encouraged readers, again and again, to question what they saw, what they read, what they heard, what they felt.
The vaccine was more of their lies but the only real cure was truth. They didn't burn the Philip K Dick books they hauled away from bookshops and libraries, they shredded them, and recycled the paper for the approved literature. Cleansing the internet of Philip K Dick's ideas and questions, however, proved impossible.
Thanks for bringing some perspective to the ugly little factoid linking Loughner and PKD. After years of recommending Dick to my friends and relatives,a few are now giving me the tilted head look.
Has anyone noticed that self-professed expert grammarian Loughner said he was interested in "conscience dreaming. Adds another layer to the weirdness. Dick would have laughed. THAT is the question! To me it seems like a bunch of lazy journalist hacks turning over every turd to find something to write about.
No doubt if Loughner liked apple pie that would also be in the news and those damn apples would be to blame. Dick" Political Ideology on the other hand Real man Post a Comment. Sadly, it is becoming increasingly clear that Jared Loughner, the mentally disturbed man who shot Congresswomen Giffords and a whole bunch of other people in Tucson last week, was a Philip K Dick fan Though he does not list any PKD books in his favorite books section of a profile page In yesterday's Washington Post a story recounts Loughner's contact with fringe culture.
The money quote: "Loughner's favorite writer was Philip K. Dick, whose science-fiction tales travel a mystical path in which omnipotent governments and businesses are the bad guys and the average man is often lost in an identity-shattering swirl of paranoia, schizophrenia and questions about whether the universe and the individual are real or part of some vast conspiracy.
Dick, who all but invented a science-fiction genre about how the powerful have the rest of us living in a dream world in which we are manipulated.
The most commercially popular version of this worldview is The Matrixthe film with Keanu Reeves as a computer hacker who discovers that he and all of humanity are actually trapped in a gigantic machine in which they are serving as energy sources for other machines. The Dick view was, it turns out, quite literally out of the brain of a paranoid schizophrenic, as biographies of the writer himself reveal. Dick, of whom there are many millions, are going to go out and shoot people.
That this notion seemed less plausible to many than that Loughner was driven to a murder spree by talk radio says a great deal about the reality distortions that grabbed hold of the minds of eager liberals over the past six days. Will the angry villagers now hunt down the literary legacy of Phil Dick with pitchforks and torches because one of his fans lost it?
I doubt it.

But this makes me sad. This line in the WaPo story really hit me: "He had friends, but then all of a sudden. This guy certainly could have been part of it.
The WaPo article concludes: "Over the past two years, Loughner "was desperate to hang out with people," Montanaro said. It was rather annoying.
Dick is able to make it clear exactly how 'fake' consumerist culture can be. Dick's ultimate conclusion, in my opinion, is that these connections forge and ground our realities, rendering 'false' realities real. Our digital interactions are limited by our lack of physicality, but they are not rendered completely powerless either.
Reality, like home, is where the heart is. Sadly, for Loughner, there was no ' there ' there. Loughner's rampage shows the effect of long-term isolation and alienation, the toll mental illness takes on the psyche, and the desperate, existential need we all have for connection.
Apr 07, Boom Studios announced today that it plans to publish a issue comic book adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.Remember, Dick's trust authorized an adaptation of "The Electric Ant" last year, and this looks like another pretty good move, hopefully exposing the novel to another set of metalstringsound.com thing that I like about the project is that they plan to a complete adaption, Author: Ragle Gumm.
