I want to start reading Bataille, and I'm wondering if y'all have any suggestions as to articles/books/etc that I should look into to help understand the arguments (links would be much appreciated).  Thanks!

Saints of the Impossible: Bataille, Weil, and the Politics of the Sacred by Alexander Irwin

 

and

 

The non-esoteric portions of The Thirst for Annihilation: Georges Bataille and Virulent Nihilism by Nick Land

 

straight up Bataille is confusing if you're not well-read in traditional philosophical texts

Do you know where I can find a PDF of Land's book?

I uploaded it to mediafire myself but got lucky awhile ago and found some sketchy link on a twitter account to get the PDF.

Also Bataille's "On Nietzsche" isn't too difficult and gives a lot of insight into Bataille's mindset.

The bullshit is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of continental philosophy, most of the arguments will go over a typical audience member's head. There's also Michigan KM's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into their cross x questions- their personal philosophy draws heavily from Philip K Dick literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of these taglines, to realize that they're not just edgy- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence, people who dislike Policy Debate truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humor in Morgan's existential cross x question "If you were an abstract expressionist painting, what color scheme would you use and why?", which itself is a cryptic reference to Bataille's French epic The Solar Anus. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Aaron Kall's genius unfolds itself on the livestream. What fools... How I pity them XD. And yes by the way, I DO have a Michigan KM tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies eyes only. And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 outround wins of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.
