I'm almost done with Camus' Myth of Sisyphus, via audiobook. I'm not always totally paying attention to it, and it has the weird day-to-day effect of essentially outsourcing the background churning of existential crisis to a narrator's voice in my head (instead of via my own thoughts). I'll probably listen again at some point. it's comforting and horrifying! 10/0

We might actually agree on something? I thought it was his best work. The only book of his I found somewhat weak was Rules Of Attraction. I haven’t read “White” yet.

Hogg- Samuel Delaney

Probably the only novel I’ve been uncomfortable reading with anyone else in the room.

Almost done with Gulliver’s Travels

The chapter involving the “Struldbrugs” was amazingly depressing.

“The Neon Bible” - John Kennedy Toole

Incredibly mournful. Astounding this was written by a 16 year old.

A Confederacy Of Dunces.

I’m assuming the Jew broad eventually rapes his fat ass. I guess we’ll never know.

I dunno. I wasn't motivated to read it in the first place and it just felt like a slog.

10/10. As if we needed any more proof of the biological veracity of classical racial categories, this is the final nail in the coffin of the jewish post modern "blank slate" lie.

i grew up in south florida. down here, more than the bush era neocon bullshit, the popularity of nu metal as a cultural force is what really prepared me mentally for people like you
