Luke is a PhD student at Macquarie University, Sydney Australia in the department of English. His research interests are the politics of aesthetics, Weird fiction and New Wave. He memes as @deleuzeanddragons on Instagram and Dungeons and Repetition 2nd Edition on Facebook. Earlier, he posted as Dungeons and Dasein, but has now joined The Potato Gang. What began as playful explorations of the potential to uncover understanding the meme format has largely turned into obscure sad posting and the difference and repetition of blankly parodic shibboleth. He is poorly read in all areas that one would expect him to have some familiarity with given the above.
