    To me, he’s more like Jimi Hendrix than Elvis …

  7. GkYerBlues says:

    How does Zizek’s talk of appearance with out substantial ‘thing’ behind it
    differ from Deleuze’s talk of ‘true repetition’, repetition without
    difference? ,

  8. DeepOne says:

    whats this about?

  9. Max Gutapfel says:

    I just hurt my finger trying to clap with one hand … fuck you slavoj!

  10. LORDMAUD says:

    Incredible to see him not give the same talk drawn from his standard
    repertoire of jokes strung together with variations on a philosophical
    them. Seems even more engaging and insightful this way. “The Elvis of”
    whatever is a terrible analogy : he’s more like a jazz musician who, if
    it’s just a paying gig, will jam out whatever he knows the audience wants
    to hear, maybe hitting a few ‘blue’ notes here and there just to provoke,
    but when it comes down it it, can impress a room full of musicians.
