I've finished editing The Legacy of Totalitarianism in a Tundra 3: Tokyo Drift. The Everglades spinoff will be added on to make a double-feature. It will be available in free pdf (later in the thread), b&w paperback/hardcover and colour paperback at printer's costs.
In total it should be about 90,000 words and 450 (420?) pages once finished.
ITT: Post your most experimental writings, regardless of how bad they are, and lets see if we can understand them:
COULD LIFE BE A GROOVE THAT THE JIVE OF THOUGHT AND REALITY DANCE ON THE SAME FLOOR OF THE UNIVERSAL MEDIUM? The question stood posed with it's arms crossed of the eternal judge. We stand and ask*infinity, but we cannot not not not not answer this unsiezable partling, and the now I know, contrary to the life of the world around me. Smooth.
post-punctum, I choose to begin my stor(y) here after giving you a brief synopsis given the summary of the autobiography of The (despite that pre-punctum (putting that point, which from the outside, is already within the inside and put back into the outside of the thought) and thererfore. Now, I say with dreadful pride that crazy, absolutely crazy numbler of sheer sizes have put away our boastful fears away forevermore. Once thought is allowed to roam within the (certainly) bumbling forests of the metaphysical...

So I'm halfway through this and while the acting is stiff and dull as fuck, the source material seems like it would be interesting. Are the actual Dune books good?
why is making a living of art so fucking BS.
It's like there's no middle ground, you could become ultra rich or simply die poor.

where does he go wrong?
How do I stop my writing from turning into a script? I love writing dialogue and while I'm pretty confident in the quality of my dialogue, I alwyas end up with pages looking like:
The man turned to the woman and said, "Dialogue."
"More dialogue" she replied.

this is a good question
mine always becomes awkward with describing the character's actions or details during the conversation
i think honestly if you have that much dialogue to write you should maybe just let it go as it is
Dialogue is essentially exposition, you're telling the reader what you want him to know by having him listen in on characters talking. If possible, try to show rather than tell the reader the same information. If you're using a lot of dialogue to tell the reader that a character is wishy-washy and unable to make a decision, try instead to cut the dialogue down to a minimum and reinforce it with an action - our indecisive protagonist talking while trying to pick between two nearly identical apples, for example.
I guess it's really more about plays rather than strictly literature, but I think Shakespeare is sufficiently literary to be suited to this board.
Anyway, the question is, do you think Shakespeare's plays ought to be performed translated into modern English? Why or why not?
My own take is that they should, because his language archaic enough to be rather difficult for a modern reader to understand without the aid of a dictionary. I also say that if Chekhov in English is still Chekhov that Shakespeare in Modern English can still be Shakespeare.
>modern English began after the great vowel shift in about 1550
>Shakespeare wrote in the early 1600s
Shakespeare is in modern English

How relevant is this book for today's society? I've heard that the penalization for owning lolicon content was a prime example of thoughtcrime.
For the /lit/ anons that actually do/enjoy science, is there any fundamental difference between pop science shows(like Brain Games and the like) and actually reading the books/papers and investigations?
I mean, sure, if you read you'll be able to discuss it more thoroughly i guess, but with pop science you get the basics of everything to understand something without having to delve deep into searching and shit.
You answered your own question, pop science is made to make the subject closer to a layman understanding, but if you want the real shit you have to read the papers.
if you want a decent understanding of scientific topics then just read textbooks for undergrads. only once you get the general knowledge of the topic and importantly vocabulary can you begin to understand scientific papers
What do you all put in mid-chapter breaks?

Are the Harry Potter novels, dare I say it, good?
Is it an interesting piece of immersive fiction or is it just fluffy entertainment?
It's not even fluffy entertainment. Millions of children were tricked into reading this product. It's entirely devoid of imagination. Looking back I'm embarrassed eleven year old me bought into it.
What are some philosophical books to help me get over my Pyrrho tier skepticism?
I'm a fan of tv shows like The Prisoner, Carnivale, Twin Peaks, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Serial Experiments Lain, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Haibane Renmei or The Maxx. So psychological dramas with surreal elements. What are some books similar to those?
