It is my understanding that grits are cornmeal based. I recently had shrimp and grits for breakfast and it was a stunning meal.
          So welcome to February. Welcomewelcomewelcome. It is good to see you. We are enjoying a fair bit of happy here at 98 Harbord St. We've got some events coming up. We also have a book launch. The book launch will be very nice. I do urge you to pop by if you are near.
This newsletter features a little bit of Broken Record Newsletter Neil. This coming Sunday, February 9th, will be our annual inventory day. We will be closed on February 9th. We will not be open that day. You may see this mentioned a few times in this electronic document.
Once again the new titles do not disappoint. If only I could read as fast as the world produces good books. I had a discussion recently in which myself and the other member of the conversation considered whether, as a possible result of the current hectic and imbalanced world, hamburgers might become sentient and come for us all. Happy to discuss further with anyone who sends me an email. Though it is likely you we are not clearly visible from space we love you very much. Thank you for helping us through the second month of the twenties. Away we go!

Race After Technology
Ruha Benjamin

May We Have Your Attention Please? will help you to conquer your adult ADHD -- in a way that's From everyday apps to complex algorithms, Ruha Benjamin cuts through tech-industry hype to understand how emerging technologies can reinforce White supremacy and deepen social inequity.

Benjamin argues that automation, far from being a sinister story of racist programmers scheming on the dark web, has the potential to hide, speed up, and deepen discrimination while appearing neutral and even benevolent when compared to the racism of a previous era. [More. . .]

Cognitive Code: Post-Anthropocentric Intelligence and the Infrastructural Brain
Johannes Bruder

As the second decade of the twenty-first century draws to a close, the cultural, social, and economic effects of artificial intelligence are becoming ever more apparent. Despite their long-intertwined histories, the fields of neuroscience and artificial intelligence research are notoriously divided. In Cognitive Code Johannes Bruder argues that seemingly incompatible scales of intelligence - the brain and the planet - are now intimately linked through neuroscience-inspired AI and computational cognitive neuroscience.

Bruce Reis - Preface by Christopher Bollas

Creative Repetition and Intersubjectivity looks at contemporary Freudian and post-Freudian theory through an intersubjective lens.

Allowed to Grow Old: Portraits of Elderly Animals from Farm Sanctuaries
Isa Leshko, Sy Montgomery, and Gene Baur

There’s nothing quite like a relationship with an aged pet—a dog or cat who has been at our side for years, forming an ineffable bond. Pampered pets, however, are a rarity among animals who have been domesticated. Farm animals, for example, are usually slaughtered before their first birthday. We never stop to think about it, but the typical images we see of cows, chickens, pigs, and the like are of young animals. What would we see if they were allowed to grow old?
