What the fuck? Did this guy never interact with a kid in his life? They're all annoying and gross. Was he a pedophile or something?
Emo people enjoy being in the presence of children, because their innocence shines like a light. Not everyone sees children this way. I see them like you do OP, but I also used to work in a nursing home and old people always seemed refreshed after a visit from children.

When did it become so cool to hate on Ayn Rand?
Hey guys, I been looking at this amazing illustrated edition of Dune.
Do you think it is worth the hefty price?
If not do you know anything similar, I saw the Barnes and Noble one, but that was dull compared to this one
how the hell can normies stand to read genre fiction?
you can read a tight, thought provoking 150-300 pages of literary fiction where every word feels important
or you can read a 10 book series of 700 page tiny print tomes where everything is exposition or dialogue where two of the thousands of characters argue and play mind games with each other described in excruciating detail as if the reader is too stupid to infer what's going on in a dialogue
i am genuinely impressed anyone has the attention span for this stuff, i simply cannot do it
This... This fucking thing!
Oh. My. God. I finally found something worth reading on amazon that dosen't suck the dry shit out of a dead donkey's rotten asshole for once,
it's like The Catcher in the Rye except good, because it isn't fucking boring. and the protag is a even bigger cunt (in a good way)

>ITT: a book shill attempts to pander to the notorious 4chan /lit/erature board by cussing a lot and being arbitrarily vulgar
we do appreciate honesty and literary merit, you know. If your book is truly great you don't have to make a weak attempt at "meeting us halfway" or winning us over by fitting in with the guys.
I fuckin hate it when shills try to fondle my balls instead of just selling their shit
Around page 104, Zizek claims that to quell descent in the 1980s, those in power pushed transcendental meditation, along with drugs and pornography, so rebels would give up.
I poked around online to try and find examples of eastern physiology being mobilized in Poland to crush dissent, to no avail.
Is he just talking out of his ass again? It'd be seriously interesting if he isn't. But given his track record on these subjects, is he just lying to me m8 ????
Why are novels which are deemed as "classics" always written in a pretentious poetry-like prose? Trying to read Lolita but can barely understand the first page

Are any of you actually any good at writing?
When will the world recognize the genius of Nick Land?
>best writer who was born there
>Belluno, northeastern Italy
>The Tartar Steppe and Il colombre, a short stories collection (pic related)
Dunno man. It makes me want to go join the gestapo and to do a shakedown on his entire family, and then to send them to the camps despite not finding anything.
>Vladislav the Gorgeous Hillock
I mean: what the fuck?
Theodor von Dostow sounds much better imho. Why did he not like the Germans so much? Can you think of one single German character of his who is not an asshat and a jerk?
>one character occasionally makes modern references
Does this ruin or enhance a story?
