>he texts with perfect grammar and punctuation
Overrated. Like Japanese films, it LOOKS like a novel but there's really no content. It's pure imitation of American or European models without anything inside, like a replicant out of Philip K Dick.
Can you guys recommend some good "literary" twitter accounts?
>try to kill postmodernism
>only make it stronger
Is this about irony vs. sincerity?
All text from him (not too many I know) kinda sound "very nice", good message, but when I know some guy was (also?) all about fucking young chicks doubt about all intentions creep up my mind I stop believing.
That's why we need Camille "no appetite for deconstruction" Paglia.
>considers himself patrician
>doesn't even speak fluent French
>he polluted his knowledge of English, the logical conclusion to language, with some disgusting Continental babble
>cultivate beautiful enunciated Parisian accent
>love reading aloud or subvocalising while reading texts because the language is so beautiful

Are you living the literary life yet?
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
A BOAT, beneath a sunny sky
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July—
Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear—
Long has paled that sunny sky;
Echoes fade and memories die;
Autumn frosts have slain July.
Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.
Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.
In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,

Was Marx right to turn Hegel on his head? What do you all think of dialectics? Are you an idealist or materialist? Will we ever reach a final synthesis or is that contradictory to the nature of dialectics?
Have Fiction books significantly changed your mindset/lifestyle? If so, which ones and why?
Is there even a reason to read fiction besides killing time? For example, how would a book like Moby Dick change you when it's about whaling(which you most likely don't participate in.)?
What's your opinion on people who read books like this? Scumbags right?
Just a few days left.
Are you hopelessly behind, or coming close to your wordcount goal?
Post books that are fun/funny.

I'm not in the mood today, just finished an essay for Uni and want to curl up in bed with a Paige Turnah.
Are we allowed to have a thread for questions that don't deserve their own thread?
What word processor or text editor do you guys use?
Currently deciding what college I will go to and I know I will go in undecided, but my question is there anything to do beyond trying as many new things as possible to figure out what I will do with my life or just put my head down and try to grind for a job that can pay well and hope for the best? Essentially, should I try to work a probably unfulfilling job and try to read books on the side (I personally don't think that would happen) or go into a field related to philosophy or literature and ride the struggle bus for the rest of my life?

>Christianity is much more atheist than the usual atheism.

Look at his lectures. Lots of his ideology sifts through in those and he goes back to the same motifs a LOT.
The inkling I got from him is that Christianity is centered on the death of the "Big Other" i.e Christ and God on earth, and, he says, the realization that we are truly alone. He goes on about this at the end of Perverts Guide to Ideology during the Christ scene specifically (close to the end, or actually the end of the movie)
