Okay, so below will be a sort of repository of all the links and authors people recommended me to check out now that I’ve figured out this ebook nonsense. This will be more for my reference than anyone else’s, but I still figured I’d share: Assata (Shakur), An Autobiography 65 Books You Need To Read In Your 20s The Free, Complete Works of HP Lovecraft (click through for a list...
the-wandering-mind, gönderine yorum yaptı: yirmisekiz Earthsea saga - ursula leguin? Excellent! Holy shit I have so many recommendations now. I might post a list or something once I’ve gotten all of them organised. Thank you! <3
It suddenly occurred to me that ebooks exist and are a thing, so now I would like recommendations for things to read, please.
what I said: You really need to think a little more carefully about the consequences of your actions, especially when it comes to expressing your opinions amongst a sea of people who are out to arbitrarily hate everyone and everything.
what you heard: dont talk about anything ever because i dont care and i dont wanna hear it and i hate you and why dont you just go die
I’d just like to add a clarification to what I asked Zilvia last night, on the topic of abuse. My point was not at all to imply that children should, as a matter of course, resent their mothers. Part of the emotion behind my post was driven by something I’ve posted recently on the topic of why I don’t begrudge my parents not giving me siblings. I feel like the argument that, as...

Back in October, Alexis wrote a piece asking what rights do we have with regard to the air above our property. Walk onto someone’s lawn and you’re trespassing; fly over it in a helicopter and you’re in the clear — “the air is a public highway,” the Supreme Court declared in 1946. But what about the in-between space? Does the availability of unmanned aerial...

We were sitting at the kitchen table, we three women, folding mantı into tiny pouches with our fingertips, and the question had absolutely no malice behind it, yet still cut through the stuffy silence like a knife in my ears- ‘but you don’t have any brothers or sisters, do you?’ And it wasn’t the act of asking, it wasn’t the curiosity that got me, but the expectation...

b: She was telling me all about the boys she has a crush on, and I was ignoring her!

I’m not digging the hypocrisy that’s becoming (has been?) rampant in society. I’m not digging people getting up in arms over words and actions that they themselves spew right back out under a different flag with a different label pasted over them. I’m not digging the widespread apathy, the indifference, the way people carry themselves with the sincerest disregard for...

prypiat, gönderine yorum yaptı: yirmiiki this is awesome! Haha thanks! The shit my brain comes up with while I sleep, lol.
The air was crisp and clean and cold and roared in my ears as I fell. The city stretched up around me, reaching into a clear, endless blue sky, unfathomably huge spires of metal and glass. It felt like it took me hours to hit the ground, and when I finally did, paffing into a huge drift of snow many tens of feet thick, it occurred to me that there were no people in this city, and that once the air...
I am standing on a beach. My boots are encrusted with wet-turned-dry sand. There is no tide- the water is still and smooth as glass and so blue, so very blue, I feel like it has redefined the entire color for me. I can feel the sun on the back of my head, but I am almost entirely covered by a suit of leather armor, black beneath with rust-red where the armor is reinforced by ceramic plates, and...
It was at that moment I realised that the army I was leading was losing horribly. I had been so caught up in the bloodlust of absolutely ruining other people that I had neglected my own troops, and in that moment of realisation three shots cracked out again, and I felt myself stagger backwards as my armor absorbed the blow but not the force. Suddenly the entire opposing army opened fire on me,...

Exhibiting no concern for the inevitably deadly consequences of his actions, 25-year-old Texas law student Cody Wilson hopes to bring about “a complete explosion of all available gun laws” with his designs for 3-D printable firearms. - 2013/05/06 It was only a matter of time.

There came up a great cheer around me, and the battle began in earnest. Men fired their weapons around me, and I shot bright gold suns out from my sword, my words getting longer and more complex each time, until eventually I was speaking entire sentences and brilliant gold figures were leaping from my blade, and flying or wriggling through the air or running across empty space towards the...

sinandserotonin: you dropped a wish in a basket that you threw into the sea and you thought it would weigh heavy like hearts and old souls so that you could catch some castaway dreams in whiskey bottles filled up to the brim and flung down into the brine-anchored depths of the atlantic— you did not catch a single message that did not scream put me back

The human mind likes simplicity. It’s a complicated world, so we filter it into one cohesive and easy-to-digest worldview. This perspective is a rather unscientific one, however. When we observe the world we conclude that we have a pretty good idea of how it works – X will always cause Y – even … The third-to-last paragraph is particularly relevant. ‘… trying to sound smart...
