Andri Snaer Magnason at Birdwaves, Time Traveling and Dream Harvesting: Contemporary Sci-Fi and Geek Culture
March 1, 2013
To kick off the Sci-Fi Fortnight at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, Andri Snaer Magnason participated in the panel “Birdwaves, Time Traveling and Dream Harvesting: Contemporary Sci-Fi and Geek Culture” alongside Sean Ferrel, Stephen H. Segal, and NK Jeminsin.
During the event, Andri focused his reading around ideas. He read from LoveStar’s manifesto:
“An idea hijacks the brain, pushes away feelings and memories, makes you neglect friends and relations, and drives you toward a single goal, that of launching the idea into the world. An idea takes over the speech centers, allowing access only to itself, it steals your appetite, reduces your need for sleep, and induces the brain to produce a chemical that is stronger than amphetamines and can keep you going for months at a time.”
