Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

The really annoying thing about her? I totally support what she's doing. Civil disobedience is an incredible thing, and, even though I don't at all approve of what she stands for, her methods are admirable. Why can't the gay community do something other than throwing an occasional parade and acting ...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Thanks a lot for the resources, but honestly, I just feel kind of overwhelmed. I've been aware of non-binary gender identities for a long time, but it's only a few days ago that I actually started looking into them, and it's dawned on me how deep and complex the world really is. It doesn't help that...

Re: Books you're reading now

Well, that was one of my issues with Infinite Jest, too, really. The things that really add to the world tend to be things that could easily have been fit into the actual prose, and the things that aren't are just painfully didactic. The same thing is happening in this, so far. That said, I do reall...

Re: Books you're reading now

Finally got around to starting House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewsky. About 100 pages in, and I gotta say, the narrative structure is brilliant. The page structure, however, is gimmicky and just an excuse for Danielewsky to show off. Still, it's philosophically invigorating with its blend of existe...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

I've started to question my gender identity a lot more recently. For quite a while now, there's been an inkling of femininity in how I looked at myself, but this past week or so, it's become legitimately difficult for me to look at myself as a boy. I've always felt a pang of discomfort whenever I'd ...

It's an anime blog, and, well, I'm new to the blogosphere and only have one published blog that I'm kind of unsatisfied with, but hey, I'll get better, right?

Re: Books you're reading now

Yeah, I understand all that, but Frankenstein did blatantly say that the overly ambitious goals of the obsolete physicists he studied were part of his path of destruction. I guess I'll just consider him an unreliable narrator.

Re: Books you're reading now

I'm reading Frankenstein, for school. I tried reading it before and quit about 50-ish pages in. The prose is gorgeous, which is enough to keep me going, and it is kind of a necessary book to read, but its whole "science can go too far, ignorance is bliss" message is totally disgusting to m...

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Anime Frustration

Check out Kaiba, a vaguely dystopian story centered around a man who wakes up with amnesia in a strange, dadaist nightmare. It's weird, but somewhat mellow, really. If you're willing to look past the school aspect, the director's other series, The Tatami Galaxy and Ping Pong, are also sublime. The G...
