Any advice on getting into writing?
It's been hard for me to write about any character that isn't myself or like me, or to not write in first person view.
I don't know, I got a dream journal and when I'm describing a vivid dream I have no problems.
I literally just finished writing a book last week. Let me ask this: why you want to get into writing?
I have nothing to do, so if you want you can ask something, but I'm Italian so keep that in mind.
Those are the classic symptoms of autism anon, I am so sorry.
My advice is if you are writing, always start from the characters up.
Never use retarded shit for dialogue like: "You're a big guy." He objected, assuredly.
It makes people cringe when people use big words and pointless adverbs to describe dialogue. I am sure you read enough books to know the difference between good dialogue and bad dialogue but if you don't just do your research before you make any reader want...

Which one I better?
geez, hard to say, both masterpieces for whatever that's worth.
i'm leaning slightly in the direction of m&d just because I adore pynchon and prefer his brand of humor to barth's...
i will say though, between the two is not so good a comparison as it may seem. while M&D is decidedly ABOUT america, the sot-weed factor is almost only set in america by coincidence. i would say sot-weed is much more a book about the poet, the figure of ebeneezer cooke in specifc, and a parody of the early american novel, not a parody of early america.

How has this book not gotten the critical acclaim it deserves?
My girlfriend loves twentieth century music and recently got really hooked on John Cage. I ordered this book online for her, I was wondering if any of you guys had ever read it? I flipped through the copy of my local library and lost myself in it for practically an hour.
I don't like cage.
I don't think philosophy can ever justify music just because you say so.
I think that if you want to express an idea in music it must be embedded within the music, un-programmatically, deriving its power from the ability of the listener to infer upward from sense perception to intellection.
The key to understanding so called classical music is in my view simply the adequate development of this ability.
I think stravinsky is extremely worth noting here.
