    I'm trying to pick up on Niklas Luhmann's systems theory using an English translation, but this shit is dense. You essentially have to ignore that he's going back to a functionalist perspective to be alright with it.

    Tomorrow I move past the intro and the first chapter.

    Because it's been 40 years since it came to cinema screens?

    No because I have never read the book, but always wanted to.

    I loved Clockwork Orange from first page, literally, translator made it perfect. I will never be able to read it in original I guess, but I barely regret. I've read that polish-russian version, but I know there's a polish-german too, just in case.

    K.Kesey is a master of descriptions and bearable psychoanalysis, actually after reading "Sometimes a great notion" I feel like I saw a movie, I remember it like that.

    It is a movie, fyi. Sometimes, A Great Notion is one of those books that wasn't extremely interesting at first, but got better and better. The ending is really what blew my mind.

    Besides it's about life in Oregon, as the resident Oregonian I love it just for that.

    Hard to believe it's been 40 years since the movie came out.
