If he were a character in a play or novel you guys would be talking about him here a lot.
Not saying that his life philosophy is profound, new, or revolutionary, but his lines are certainly quite interesting. There are some metaphors and modern prose poetry on them that are of great quality, and he has some agglutination of diverse characteristics (severe and Spartan lifestyle/drunkenness drug abuse; disdain for humanity and life/desire to protect and help victims; moments of calm reflection and silence/wild bursts of violence and energy) that makes him quite complex.
Best translation for Siddhartha by Herman Hesse?

So I ask my RE teacher what his opinion is on Nietzsche is because he won't know who Max Stirner is then he says he doesn't agree with him but knows he's important then says that the nazis used the Ubermensch (no umlaut for me) to do some shit....

enjoy laughing at literal retards
i'm glad you guys are laughing, it depressed the hell out of me knowing 90% of the people i know or meet everyday who cite reading as a hobby are like this.
it's as if they want me to be some sort of snob for reading "serious literature" without complaint when i just want someone else of a similar standard to talk to.
things can get discouraging.
So the regular car reviews guy just started talking about this in his PT Cruiser review.
It starts at 9:08
Is what he's saying at all accurate. Is the disagreement about truth through work and truth which is immediate?
It's kind of a polemical pastiche of various ethical and aesthetic aspects of some arguably core conceptions of postmodernism. He's just diagnosing the design mentality, I think, as a kind of postmodern self-aware cynicism and malaise about putting in exceptional effort or trying to create something truly "new." He gets his polemical point across about that, but I wouldn't cite the foregoing synopsis on an art history essay or anything.
What books make you feel what this album does?

Is Zeus the most retardedly alpha character in all of fiction?
Is there a way to block out every single sound in your environment when you're reading? Maybe sound isolating ear muffs? That's really the only thing I can imagine working. I want to totally block out every single sound around me, because I get very distracted.
There's children and construction outside of my house all the time. I would much rather hear monotonous, repetitive sounds that come from my own breathing and pulse than the shreaks of my neighbor's children.
I use cheap sound-isolating earmuffs, and I love them. To block out virtually everything, you'll have to pay more, but I usually put on my regular headphones underneath the muffs and turn on some white noise.
I don't hear myself breathing with them on. I don't see how you would unless you huff like a Neanderthal.

What is so hard about reading Catch-22?
It's long and not linear. It's a popular book so people that don't read often might try it because they've heard of it.
This combo leads to people dropping it.
It's actually not a very difficult read though.
