Tell me bout dem rabbits again George, will ya?
it is pretty incredible how much mileage cartoons have gotten out of lon chaney's delivery of that line.
I especially enjoyed the South Park episode where all the retarded kids were based on famous implied-retard cartoon characters of the past.
I hated Krippled Summer at first but it slowly grew on me and I loved all the Looney Tunes esque antics they got up too, especially Nathan's plans backfiring on him in hilarious fashion.
So would you say all of Of Mice and Men was an allegory for the Garden of Eden and how women destroy man's perfect idealized paradise?
having ground up on looney tunes, my whole experience of watching old hollywood movies has been, o fuck that's where that's from. Like the first time I watched an edward g robinson movie, or james cagney.
How does one become more articulate?
Is it worth getting the Wordsworth version of Descartes' Mediations, considering it's cheap? Or is it better to get the Oxford or Cambridge version of Mediations, with regards to translation quality?
What does the cover look like?
it sounds pretty logic to me.
Vulgar economism is basically a Marxian cult that died with Second International thought
"Scientific" historicism is a relic of the 19th century
So is historical teleology
Most non-Marxist materialist historiography has dealt with the relationship between base and superstructure to the point that simplistic formulations are no longer tenable
Even within the Marxian milieu the same thing has happened (Gramsci, structuralism, poststructuralism)

Or anything Greek,

Where did Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop go?
In my mind he sort of just splintered into a couple of feebler versions of himself that then sort of evaporated.
I think i had a decent idea for it but i've forgotten it now, Maybe without the war and the system to fight against the Slothrop of the book ceased to exist

Broke fuck here. I recently finished a book but am burnt out and can't be bothered to edit it and fix the formatting, I just can't. What are some good budget-friendly avenues to find an editor?
you have to do editing yourself.
then an agent will also help you edit if you find an agent that likes your work.
then if the agent gets you a book deal with a publisher, the publisher will also have an editor.
none of this should cost you money, as your agent and publisher make money on the sale of your book. if an agent is asking you for money up front you probably shouldn't trust them.
basically stop being lazy, editing is part of writing.
I wouldn't trust the average freelance editor as far as I could throw them. Your best bet is to just wait a couple of months till you're less burnt out on the fucker and get back at it.
Are there any legitimately good books that focus on Tolkeinesque dwarves? There doesn't seem to be a lot out there. I tried reading a series from a German author and it was horrible.
What's your opinion on the wheel of time series? any good?
after the lackluster first half of the first book, I'm starting to dig it.
Mediterranean fantasy, / lit /.
So, today I finished William Tenn's A Lamp for Medusa and Kutter's The Mask of Circe. Very very nice.
So, at this time my jam is the Greek mythology so I would read a few themed novel. I want to read the prose version of Odyssey. Do you know some another good books?
I would also like to start, sooner or later, the saga of Percy Jackson ... ... Is it worth?
The digital age has made the writer less valued than ever before.
Why are our literary skills so worthless and ignored in the current age?

How can you refute skepticism?
skepticism of the external world is a logically incoherent position because in doubting the existence of a world, you doubt the world as you experience it, which assumes there is a world that you experience. so it's a circular question in the same way there's circular logic to believing there is an external world.
Are there any ongoing book series worth reading right now? Kinda feeling like getting myself into something like that since I just finished reading the last part of Asimov series.
Sam Harris is building quite the philosophical tour de force. His books aren't a series, per se, but one may consider them each as parts of a greater work--- la fine della filosofia, one might say.
Ah, but you see, Harris has crafted a universe wherein the characters are gods, ghosts, history, and the roiling mass of humanity. And the plot is ever so intricate. One joins Harris as a prime actor in this universe, tearing down the false gods of Christianity, Islam, and free will.
Along the way you will meet mystics, learn to meditate and let go of the self. All of this begins with a simple letter to a Christian nation.
