    Reading The Pyrotechnic Insanitarium is like attending a class reunion of the last decade you get to revisit all the things you kind of forgot about and all the things that you wish you could forget, like big boob jobs and Jim Rose Circus Sideshow He even examines those horrid daytime tabloid tv shows and validates their existence with some compelling reasons although not convicing enough for me to watch.The first chapter covers the gamut from the X files and Crag Baldwin to Umberto Eco Adorno T [...]

  2. Anya Webersays:

    This is what it feels like when the End Times are Nigh which seems to happen every hundred years or so, and recently, about once a decade Mark Dery wrote this book of essays in the late 1990s, about the fin de millennium, and it s still equally relevant as our fractured, kaleidoscopic, socially networked to death decade of naughts draws to a close The essays explore everything from the Unabomber to killer clowns, placing disturbing 1990s American pop culture in a larger technological and scient [...]

  3. Wythe Marschallsays:

    Mark Dery is one of the sharpest writers on modern culture I ve ever discovered His feverish, post everything essays about American global technological millennial culture what he calls the pyrotechnic insanitarium, recycling a gem of Coney Island barkery reverberate with the right mix of the hip and the academic curmudgeonly, making this collection a joy for casual readers and sine qua non for futurologists, skeptics, and genealogists of the uncanny.Neither technophobe nor fool for the fake gol [...]

  4. Scottsays:

    i re read this book and enjoyed it as much the second time its focus is really on some of the darker threads of the fin de millennium american culture end of the century apocalyptic schizo kinda stuff killer clowns, branding, post humanism, aliens, and conspiracies it is just a relevant now as it was when i first read it at the end of the 90 s it confirms to me that somewhere near the end of 2001 time started running in reverse

  5. Cwlsays:

    Similar in content to the superlative Apocalypse Culture anthologies, but oddly interspersed with Naomi Klein style economic critiques I suggest that you peruse the wonderfully written paeans to Coney Island and sideshow bodies, but skip over any page that devotes space to income disparity And read Apocalypse Culture first.

  6. Mikesays:

    14 years old, and as a compilation that means some pieces are even older Regardless, Dery s insights pry back the linoleum and reveal some surface truths about mostly American culture which can be disturbing Dery s takes a slightly askew angle and this approach brings forth truths than are in the words.

  7. Madison Santossays:

    Required reading for how we went from Obama to Trump, from the 2008 image and figurehead of pure hope to the pyrotechnic insanitarium of 2016.

  8. Jessicasays:

    it s been years since i read this book, but i really remember enjoying the hell out of it i should reread this.

  9. Davidsays:

    Highly recommended.

  10. Dixie Johnsonsays:

    very interesting essays about some of my favorite morbid topics killer clowns, damien hirst and the xfiles its about the coming of the year 2000 so its a little dated but still relevant

  11. Kate Walkersays:
