There is a good account of it in Sir Shane Leslie’s 1956 book 'Ghosts' where he interviewed three of the priests involved in trying to remove the poltergeist. My favourite line about the ghost is from Fr. Keown “ It showed a Protestant hostility to holy water which seemed to infuriate it…” Prominently Mark Fisher and Jeremy Gilbert, 'Capitalist Realism and Neoliberal Hegemony: A Dialogue', New Formations, 80—81 (2013), 89—101 DOI:10.3898/NEWF.80/81.05.2013; Reading Capitalist Realism, ed. by Alison Shonkwiler and Leigh Claire La Berge (Iowa City: University of Iowa Press, 2014). Having read Ghosts of My Life, I now know hauntology refers to the psychological state of being haunted by a future that, for one reason or another, never arrived in one of modernity's many vacant slots. It's a bit more complicated than that though, and if some Deleuzian theoretician cornered me in an alley and browbeat me to a definition, I'd be more inclined to run away than hold my ground and submit a response.k-punk: The Collected and Unpublished Writings of Mark Fisher (2004–2016) | Repeater Books | Repeater Books".

Renowned writer and K-Punk blogger Mark Fisher from Felixstowe took own life after battle with depression", Ipswich Star, 18 July 2017 To anybody paying attention over the past decade, and more especially anyone invested in the aesthetic and political afterlife of theory, the writings of Mark Fisher have felt essential if at times frustrating. From the haunted screeds that appeared on his blog K-Punk, through the untimely meditations on precarity and the administration of affect in Capitalist Realism (2009), to his generalised presence today as melancholic – better, dysphoric – provocateur, Fisher’s has been a voice of relentless intelligence and (at his best) unabashed vulnerability in terms of fleeting personal revelation. A collection of his occasional pieces promises many things, chief among them a frank appraisal of the valence today of ‘hauntology’: the concept that he copped from Jacques Derrida and which has perhaps now had its time (again) as a way of thinking about culture and politics. This collection of writings by Mark Fisher, author of the acclaimed Capitalist Realism, argues that we are haunted by futures that failed to happen. Fisher searches for the traces of these lost futures in the work of David Peace, John Le Carré, Christopher Nolan, Joy Division, Burial and many others.

Granny at one time came first in an exam, beating a snotty nosed kid who later went on to be a Bishop of Clogher, no not that one that left under a cloud…nor that other one that left under a cloud…no the one before both of those. But as she was ‘only’ a girl the scholarship, or prize, was awarded to the future Most Reverend Snotty. At the time of his death, Fisher was said to be planning a new book titled Acid Communism,  excerpts of which were published as part of a Mark Fisher anthology, k-punk: The Collected and Unpublished Writings of Mark Fisher (2004–2016), by Repeater Books in November 2018.   Acid Communism would have attempted to reclaim elements of the 1960s counterculture and psychedelia in the interest of imagining new political possibilities for the Left.  On Vanishing Land [ edit ]
The live version, which can be heard on Oil on Canvas, is much longer, with an unsettling intro added on to the beginning. a b c d e f " Mark Fisher's K-punk blogs were required reading for a generation" by Simon Reynolds, The Guardian, 18 January 2017Unfortunately a lot less insightful than expected. This basically being a barely-cohesive collection of k-punk/magazine articles doesn't help: Fisher's opening essay (also by far the most interesting of the lot) does its best to tie everything together, but the fact remains that the book both repeats itself multiple essays in a row and yet doesn't really go into a satisfying level of depth. Post-Punk Then and Now (editor, with Gavin Butt and Kodwo Eshun). London: Repeater Books, 2016. ISBN 978-1910924266 Terminator II is "basically" the same as the first Terminator with added synths, a delay on the stabs and the Mentasm sample towards the end gets quite a bit more crazy on Terminator II but the structure is 95% the same.
