Holy fucking shit, OP. Are you me? What is your favorite film, book, album, painting? We should be penpals.
I like Pulp Fiction, that book right there, I Could Do Whatever I Wanted If I Wanted by Snowing (and) anything by Boris, and Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch always comes to mind.

Less Than Zero-Bret Easton Ellis

It's like a Hollywood Hills Catcher but with adolescent coke heads and rape
I like a porn film where a monsignor whips two chicks and makes them suck his dick.
The Earth's Children series
I don't want to share the things I like but I will tell you a bit about myself.

I'm intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor.
Proust, tbh
>It's like a Hollywood Hills Catcher but with adolescent coke heads and rape
Sounds beyond awful.

I thought I said I hate postmodernism.
Why do you meme? Honest question, I don't get it, myself.
Like, in full ecclesiastical get-up? Does he quote scripture and the Malleus Maleficarum as he does so?

You said you wanted to show contempt for it by embracing it
Oh my bad. You should definitely check out some Palahniuk novels. Super gritty, unreliable narrator, kind of stuff. Outcasts and edgy loner types
>You said you wanted to show contempt for it by embracing it
The attitude, which devalues it.
But I'm not an edgy loner and have read Palahniuk.
What this guy said, on a serious note
>Why do you meme?
why does a bird fly? or a fish swim? it is what I was born to do anon.
You don't have to be edgy to like Palahniuk (I argue the same for Burroughs and everyone on here laughs.) and I was being kinda sarcastic.

But anyway, try The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway if you haven't yet. I think you'd like it. It has that theoretically happy but with a strong melancholy undercurrent that Pet Sounds has. Pet Sounds is my favorite album, and the Beach Boys are my favorite group.
Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman would be a good fit, imo.

Are you me? I know /lit/ can get salty over Hemingway, but I cast my vote for The Old Man and the Sea.
>The Old Man and the Sea

Oh and have my favorite rock band:
Video Games
trailer park boys
fast food
shotgunning beers
smoking cigarette butts
Not /lit/, but you'd love The Microphones and Mount Eerie. Two bands (really the same band, just with a name change) solely consisting of a guy named Phil Elverum. Check out Dawn by Mount Eerie, maybe the comfiest album of all time. Or The Glow, Pt. 2 by The Microphones, which I think is the runner up. Both really folky and good.

For /lit/ though, try Jane Eyre. May seem weird based off what you said, but I think you would like how the plot is intimately related with the various settings, all of which are visited for a determined "set" of time, and the sense of freedom in conversation. The characters aren't afraid to really talk with each other, to open up, and I think the homeless people thing kinda shows a little bit of that. A bit of a time when people weren't so afraid to really talk, you know?

This could all be totally wrong, so take it with a grain of salt.
Denis fucking Johnson
Jane Smiley, or Cynthia Ozik.
I have. Honestly I like the movie too, maybe because I watched it before reading the book. I feel bad for Murray because I have strong feels for the film as well and it's sad the critics panned the movie so hard.

Not a book but I think you would like 'the goat rodeo sessions'. It's amd instrumental album made by a quartet of classical and bluegrass strings players.

Oh hell yes man I love me some TVZ. Reminds me of Justin Townes Earle (who is actually named after TVZ I think?) just because of the name similarity, but Earle is also a great folk/blues artist as well.

Thanks Anon I'll check them out.
you shouldn't be surprised to hear he's already one of my absolute favorites
>You missed the other pun, anon
Is it that "cast my vote" part
Yep, Justin Townes Earle is named after TVZ; his father is Steve Earle who you also might want to check out if you haven't already. Townes is sort of an obsession of mine, so let me give you some recommendations based off of his music.

Blaze Foley - possibly the most genuinely down to Earth singer-songwriter there ever was, he was one of Townes' best friends and was the walking embodiment of too many stereotypes, positive and negative, about country music. Nothing in his music is of high technical quality, it's all soul, but really, that's what country music is all about.

Guy Clark - Townes other musical best friend. His music is also of the country kind but it's a more thought out than Blaze's and makes better use of storytelling. I don't find his songs as gripping as Townes' or Blaze's but they're still worth checking out.

Heartworn Highways - A documentary focusing on the underground country scene of the mid 1970s. Filled with hippies and hicks. Most of the time you can't tell the difference.

Do you know Breexe D'J Pancake? Wrote about a dozen stories about life in rural Appalachia, hunting, working in garages, being poor, mining coal etc. then killed himself when he was 28. Coffee, machinery, landscapes, and country music all play a part in his fiction.

Also Winesburg, Ohio is one you might like.

I'm gonna say Anton Chekhov or Nikolai Gogol's short stories, we have pretty similar interests it seems (the only thing you posted I don't like is comics, never really read any tho tbh).

>tfw reading chekhov on the tram drinking hot coffee

Thanks for the suggestion. I've read a couple of Hemmmingway's novels and short stories, generally I like him. I really liked a farewell to arms tbh
not a book, but listen to The Conet Project. Massive collection of numbers station recordings. Creepy as fuck.

Charles Fuckowski or Raymond Carver maybe. Or Pahlanuik tbh fam


Salman Rushdie - Midnight's Children or East, West


Alice Munro -Dance of the Happy Shades
Jules Renard - Nature Stories


You might like FT Marinetti


Djuna Barnes - Nightwood


Gonna suggest Nature Stories by Jules Renard to you too. Bretty gr8 guy tbh

What are some /lit/ deep web sites?

He was an Italian futurist poet. Most famous work is his poem 'the futurist manifesto' which you can read here: http://www.italianfuturism.org/manifestos/foundingmanifesto/

I have a book of his called 'the futurist cookbook' which is kind of a dada/satire thing loosely based around a cookbook, pretty weird stuff, I'm a big fan though.

I was always a fan of Dots and Loops/Cobra and Phases, but I recently relistened to Transient, and it's just so damn good
Emperor Tomato Ketchup is their best tbh.
Not my favourite
Mathematical logic
Philosophy of language
Fin-de-siƩcle music

Solitary movies (such as Le Samourai or Drive)
Keeping a journal

Dots and Loops, Cobra and Phases and Sound-Dust are my absolute favourites, but I like the majority of their stuff

Transient is awesome, especially Crest
Heinrich Boll, Ben Marcus, or Beckett's early novels (Murphy esp.).
slaughterhouse 5 covers almost all of that
I liked it when I read it at age 17. Should probably give it a re-read at some point, I suppose.

It wouldn't have much in the way of explanation, but sounds like you'r enjoy Murakami tbh, check out 1Q84, A Wild Sheep Chase, or Kafka on the Shore
Thank you! I was honestly just expecting someone too tell me to fuck off for being dumb or whatever.

I don't know if you care but 1Q84 interested me the most so I'll read that one first, I'll definitely try to read all of them though. Murakami seems like my type of author, I'm glad you told me about him 'cause otherwise I don't think I ever would have heard of him!

Love the thought of women
Preoccupied with the idea of King-like success
Feel alone

Either/Or Part 1 if you want to keep living in despair. Both parts if you want to take a step towards realizing that you're in despair and possibly fixing your empty life. No but really, Either/Or Part 1 is a work of art. At least read The Seducer's Diary if you don't care about the philosophy. But his introspective work on Don Giovanni and Greek Tragedy, particularly in Silhouettes, is masterful and worth reading.

Hmm I've never really given Kiekergaard a shot, I was always prejudiced him as a christfag. I recall an ex-gf of mine being absolutely infatuated with his writing.

I'll check it out tomorrow, thank you.
