The personal revolution is far more difficult and is the first step in any revolution.~~ Michael Franti

I’m releasing some of my weirder and wilder bookmarks into the wild and linking to people that have influenced me as a writer.

First up we have three mind-bending essays by the brilliant and incisive Alex Burns from Disinformation.

I read them 14 years ago and they broke my head open — so much so that I even recently asked the author on Twitter how to find them so that I could read them again.

If you’ve ever thought about twisting your head out of shape or starting a revolution, this is a good place to start:

personal mutations 1: by way of introduction
personal mutations 2: asleep at the wheel
personal mutations 3: condemned to repeat it

These essays had a massive influence on me at the time — along with the writers and artists I discovered as I went down the rabbit-hole.

The complete Disinformation archives are also available online.

There’s plenty more where that came from if people are interested. If not I’ll stuff them back under the bed and read them by torch-light.
