Language question. If there's a better board for this please direct me there. Many languages have both a familiar and formal version of the word "you", such as the French "tu" and "vous" and the German "du" and "sie". Let's say that for whatever reason the Anglo countries decide to introduce a formal "you". What would that be?

You may control your governments, in a democracy, but the military and the police and the intelligence services control you. Why do you give in to the illusion of freedom after just a single layer of illusion. hat's pretty pathetic. You're pathetic.

Women can write books. Good job women!

why do people say that "reading is writing?" Is there an arche-reading which inverts and displaces the reading/writing binary?

>What Genre sells more/attracts the most people at first sight: Fiction or Non-Fiction? (or both equally?) >Would you rather have something labeled as Auto-biographical Fiction, Fiction, or....? >I've asked Legal experts but I'd like to ask avid readers as well: Does names of individuals matter to you or not? I was thinking of leaving in the first names as well as obviously describing how they actually look. All while starting the book off saying "all names/real life comparisons are merely coincidental/not real/etc etc BS" like what other books do. I've been thinking of writing a book (about my life, mostly early childhood from what I can outline right now atm) for a long time now; and am probably thinking of starting to write soon sometime after University. It's not going to be your run of the mill boring "my life" story type of book; considering its interesting (biased) enough. Think of the show of Hey Arnold and any good book that does a good job in story telling. Kinda like that I was also toying with the idea whether or not I should find an animation studio and give my pitch to them; whether or not I actually write a book. Thoughts/Opinions?

Has it always been that book stores stock trash? Life is short - there's only room for excellence.... How can people waste time on the garbage that stores sell? Are they just unaware of the better things out there to read while publishers take advantage of their ignorance?

I've just been reading Don DeLillo's "Underworld" and am struck by how right B. R. Myers was when he wrote in his "Reader's Manifesto" a few years back that "a young reader's foray into literature shouldn't have to end - for want of better advice - on the third page of something like (this book)". I really did have to stop on page 3, when I got to this: "He picks up speed and seems to lose his gangliness, the slouchy funk of hormones and unbelonging and all the stammering things that seal his adolescence. He is just a running boy, but the way running reveals some clue to being, the way a runner bares himself to consciousness, this is how the bloodrush of a dozen strides brings him into eloquence;" It seems to me that this could almost have been written DELIBERATELY to bear out all Myers's damning criticisms of contemporary 'literary prose" and the way it just tries TOO DAMN HARD to sound "writerly" and full of unique poetic insights that only a "writer" could have. The first part does that by just jumbling a lot of fairly routine and predictable descriptive terms into an odd sequence and combination that strikes the (inattentive) reader as somehow "insightful". "The slouchy funk of hormones and unbelonging and all the stammering things that seal his adolescence": Untwist all the strained poetic crinks and kinks that DeLillo has put in that and all you have is the dull, obvious: "He was a teenager, so he was troubled by his hormones, had a tendency to slouch, stammered, and felt he didn't belong." As to the second part about the "runner baring himself to consciousness" I just have NO idea what the fuck THAT is supposed to mean AT ALL. It is an image that has about as much resonance with me as would the image of "the guy using the Coca-Cola dispenser baring himself to consciousness". Maybe I don't know running - or maybe it's just some "literary prose" virtuoso screeching "Look at me! Look at me!" Comments or contradictions?
