What do you think of my limericks?
A girl I met at the zoo
Suggested we'd fuck in the loo
When I got the wrong hole
The fifth base I stole
And mixed in her semen with poo
A pretty blonde girl named Sally
Was well known in the whole valley
For being so tight
You could use her alright
For the human vehicle rally
A professional lover called Lance
Was known as the best in all France
With his heavenly thrust
They fainted of lust
So he asked for the check in advance
This young guy made lots of noise

I need a double cheeseburger and hold the lettuce
Don't be frontin' son no seeds on a bun
We be up in this drive thru
Order for two
I gots a craving for a number nine like my shoe
We need some chicken up in here
In this dizzle
For rizzle my nizzle
Extra salt on the frizzle
Dr. Pepper my brother
Another for your mother
Double double super size
And don't forget the FRIES
The Archive search is down, will it ever be fixed?

Is your life an experiment?
Post the five books in your collection that'll hold you over until the coast guard arrives or you die of starvation.
People in the cave could easily compare their own flesh to the shadows, devise a theory, and realise that they're seeing a projection. Plato was a fucktard
Never having left the cave, how could they know what a theory was? How could they know a valid theory from an invalid one?
How could they know that a difference between the shadows and themselves was an incongruence if they never knew anything else?

I want to read about the historical cycles of civilizations and civilizations decline and collapse.
Also about the moral decay in the last stage of the collapse of a civilization.
What do you got?
Would this be a nice gift for a girl who likes Cortazar, /lit/?
Yes, cortazar is after all a shitty borges.
recommendations of loneliness stories??
Why is high society so hard to break into?
More specifically, how the fuck do I get involved in the local theater scene? I love the idea of theater but have no idea how to get my finger on the pulse, so to speak. There has to be a better way than googling "*city* theater" and looking at every online box office, right? I don't even care if it's new or classical, as long as I can get a student discount. I can't even find a facebook page for local performances or anything.
Oh là là!
Is this cute the protagonist of the book?
Post your favorite!
Their photoshopped photo covers are endearingly terrible.
wait till you see that cutie Clarissa Dalloway
What is the 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' of literature?
I haf 3 dictionaries.
What's the verdict?
If there was ever a book emblematic of 'pop-logic' then this would probably be it. You're better off reading some Godel biographies by his many Asian correspondents. I'd recommend "A Logical Journey: From Gödel to Philosophy" if you want something in depth regarding Godel's philosophy and his opinions on the philosophical implications of his own work
Who is the best philosopher and why is it Hegel?
Has anyone read any of Steiner's works or know anything about Anthroposophy?
I am interested in learning more about it but I found The Philosophy of Freedom a bit boring to read.
Are there any other good starting points?
Anthroposophy is know by its critics to be the 'world's most influential cult'. It is perhaps the most influential Western esoteric philosophy in the modern world. Steiner most notably gave birth to the Waldorf education system and biodynamic agriculture.
He covered most every topic in existence.
You can spend a lifetime reading Steinerian stuff. I know people who know people who are really into it. Mostly nuts, the types who go out to California to live in a commune or read books about healing crystals.
Some of it's pretty neat but you might want to just browse it yourself and not actually sign up for the monthly crystal healing. It has some interesting philosophical and mystical/esoteric perspectives, including some shit they try to cover up these days because it was "of the time," and the time was early 20th century Germany, if you catch the drift.
My father is an anthroposophist and has read literally every single published work of Steiner. He isn't a hippy or anything, but I came to /lit/ because I wanted to know if any 'normal' people are into it.
Have a whole bookshelf full of Steiner.
As far as I'm aware there isn't anything that is too 'edgy' aside from the ideas of different races at different stages of spiritual evolution, although there is nothing about racial supremacy.
yet Occultism isn't?

What did he mean by this
Is the 1980s rivival/bubble worth giving a shot? I am thinking of a story about a magical tournament. Every game was programmed by aliens to find the chosen one who could beat them. Each game he wins give him a mega man type power until he has to use them all to defeat the boss. I want to hit the RP1 and Stranger Things demographic.
I am a dumb poor piece of shit law student that spilled coffee all over my Bluebook and ruined it (along with my phone, but I can't download a phone). I have found the 19th Edition (978-0615361161, published 2010) on BookZZ, but have had no luck finding the 20th (978-0692400197, published 2015) in any format on any of the usual sources.
If one of you have come across this before, please save my ass. Thanks.
There are so few changes between editions that the 19th will likely serve you perfectly well. Also, as a law student, through your library/journal/whatever shouldn't you have access to the online version?
Also, what year and tier?
different guy but also a law student, figure id hop in this thread
1L at T14 here, it's alright. Bluebook seems pointless desu I don't care about being slave labor for the law review.
My university is apparently wealthy enough to give us full access to all the major legal research databanks, but makes us buy the fucking Bluebook. And I'd love to have access to the online version, but they don't offer that, the cheap fucks, unless you're on Journal.
I'm a 1L, at a first tier.

Was he right?

>just now getting around to it
>thought I would try it out see why the internet loves it so much
Complete meme. Its not bad just not great either. Is any of it a must read or am I just wasting my time?
General consensus is that the writing is somewhere between not-that-great and shite, but the mythos he established, the idea of humans and human gods as being insignificant beside the sheer awesome size and power of the cosmos, is what's important. So no, you don't have to read it. I have and it was mostly a waste of time. The Dream Cycle is cool though.
What have you read?
Also: if you aren't into the occult, Lovecraft is much less interesting. The best part about reading him is all the strange details he is constantly inserting that are taken from or suggest ancient occult lore/practice. Aleister Crowley was a contemporary of his who was very interested in Lovecraft's writings, and believed Lovecraft was receiving truths and informations from beyond that even Lovecraft wasn't aware of. Many of Livecraft's ideas came in dreams, by his own...

What good does reading good literature provide for its own sake?
What do i do to differentiate my literature channel from other review channels?
So, i'm planning to start filming for a literature youtube channel but the one's i know are so cringey and they don't really have a lot of views. I speak japanese and study japanese literature in university so maybe i could teach some japanese also? Maybe do some songs about a book?
if you read a japanese author, you could do the review in japanese, or read a segment from the book in japanese, or compare between the translation and the original. i would watch anything along those lines
just give your videos your own interpretation/spin on the work instead of the "JAPANESE BOOK HAUL XXDDD"
what authors have you covered at uni?
Why are so many sociologists marxists? How can the academia have this kind of people that are no different than fascists?
What is best publisher?
How can I realistically expect my life to go if I major in English Literature?
