Why isn't any of you writing a book about 4chan culture? College shootings, epic memes, secret club, legions, hackers, slang, anonymity, elitism, there's a lot to write about. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2013/04/4chan-mall-shooter/

I'm an English lit student and I hate English literature. They're just too pretentious, from Gulliver's Tales to The Great Gatsby to A Song of Ice and Fire. I can't focus on reading them, I get bored fast. I prefer vidya and programming. Can you tell me why?

I was reading Heidegger but I can't discuss what I read because the terms i know are spanish, but, I'll try to explain: What arguments do you have against living the DADÁ, the non-authentic life, the nihilist dereliction of the self, the total indifference? With DADÁ i mean living an absurd life based on nothing and assuming that every change is absurd, to live with no ideal. I mean, "thrown into the world". (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facticity), as I understand it. I want to know your life purposes.

/lit/ I have a question, Over the past few years I've seen a lot of people comment of this book (Atlas Shrugged) and they say it changed their lives, but never explain how. For an economics course we are required to read it, and so far it hasn't impressed me in any way. Im on part 3 and struggling to continue because of the way Rand writes. The dialogue imo is awful. But anyway, any opinions on the book?

I'm thinking about purchasing a Kindle Paperwhite. Good choice? Also, can I just drag and drop a pirated ebook into the kindle or do i need to go through some extra steps like rooting the device and such?

So when exactly did literature become about bourgeois plebeian sperglords playing word games and referencing a tiny slice of the Western Canon (conveniently, mostly vernacular works) to impress each other? Was it modernism? That seems to be when they all started thinking that their formless emotional "genuineness" was superior to learning and the honing of artistic skill. But the romantics deliberately rejected classical learning to focus on banal shit for the sake of banality. Can we blame it on them?

I'm in the initial stages of writing something, but I've never done much beyond very concise stuff. I feel that something going along these themes would require a few stanzas and I'd appreciate any opinions regarding structure and content. Weatherman/Stormchaser -intimate knowledge of the weather and yet there will always be a distance unable to be crossed -always guessing, endless guessing -sometimes crushingly disappointing results despite good predictions, left with a cold dark stillness -when everything works out it's an irreplaceable feeling, the warm rain of a sun-shower on the seeds of hope -no sooner has it come then it's gone again -always predicting and planning the next outcome -can never keep it as your own, always fleeting -anger and humiliation at the sky who holds the weather, envious

"When they came for the bologna, I did not speak, because I was not a cold cut. When they came for the meatloaf. I did not speak, because I am a raw food. When they came for the cheese, I did not speak, because I am not a dairy product. When they came for the mayonnaise I did not speak, because I am not a condiment. When they came for the sausage I did not speak, because I am not a processed food. When they came for the Kool Ade, I did not speak, because, frankly, black people scare me a little. When they finally came for me, there was no one left to speak. So I told them: "FRUIT GOES IN THE FUCKING CRISPER!!!" --Granny Smith__ am I funny, /lit/?

Hey lit. So, in your opinion, what are the most important books ever written? Now I'm not talking personal taste or quality, I'm just wondering about the books that REALLY made a change and had a massive impact in literature and society. My list would go something like this. (Sorry for being an uneducated fuck when it comes to oriental shit, I only know about western civilisation really) Oh and while I feel some books are more important than others, there isn't really any clear order here. 1. The Odyssey by Homer 2. The Bible by some stoners aka the four evangelists. I guess I should throw The Koran and The Torah in there as well. 3. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes 4. The Manifesto of the Communist Party by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels 5. The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection by Charles Darwin 6. The Republic by Plato 7. All the essays and books that sparked the French Revolution really. Oh yeah The Encyclopedia by Denis Diderot and this other D'Alembert dude as well. 8. Freud's shit. (I hate the dude but he did have a big impact imo) 9. Going Rogue: An American Life by Sarah Palin So um yeah idk that's pretty much all I can think of right now. Oh other than saying stuff like lulz fagget forgot to include x book or he real dumb because he mentioned x book, just share your lists and be nice <3

Any playwrights here? Could you share your experiences? For example: when did you start writing; did your plays get performed, how much time did it take for that to happen, what format were they, do you have any professional training in the field, etc.

How do bad writers get published?

31 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: bookspic.jpg]
You see it all the fucking time. Bad writers, very bad writers, horrible writers. You wonder how the bad in your hands could be published, due to several pretty bad problems with it. So, how do it happen? And don't just say it's because some works are commercial, because there have GOT to be better sci-fi, urban fantasy writers, etc. out there. Pic related.

I just bought Infinite Jest. Did I get trolled or what? I'm about 60 pages in. It's definitely different... lots of "like... and but so". I'm enjoying some of it, some not so much. So, please give me an honest answer, is it worth putting the time into reading this monster? If not, I'm going to send it back. Thanks

I proffer unto you my latest garbage, tempered in the fires of a long morning. Please shower me with your most scathing criticisms, lest I have to even spellcheck it -- for some of us truly are too poor for Microsoft Word, and too lazy to alt tab so that one might paste it into an online spellchecker. Verily, I thank you. In exchange, accept from me this adorable image of Audrey Hepburn. http://pastebin.com/QfWfitT0

Hey, /lit. On what culture should I base my secret society? The traditional responses are things like: Druids, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and whatever. But, what can I do that's 'outside of the box'? Ideas so far have been: Tzarist Russian, Hebraic, and we're not averse to the Druid idea, either. The Jewish option seemed the most fun because it was the least faggy, and had some contemporary resonance that allowed us to not take ourselves too seriously - without contradicting the tradition, that is; which is when things become tacky. I post this question here, on /lit/, because 4chan has no history board, and because the question, 'which ancient culture, when emulated, would be the most fun?' seems to me to be a question that belongs on this board. I would like help, please, thank you, and don't be afraid to be an asshole and contribute some fantastical idea like Tlön or something.

Evening /lit/friends. /tv/friend here. I'm looking for some good books set in New York. And more specifically Manhattan. I'm thinking cocaine, suits, skyscrapers. I've found these. The Bonfire of the Vanities. The New York Trilogy. What's your opinion on these two and do you have any other recommendations?

Quick question, as a writing tip. I'm writing a story where, at one point, the main character finds a sword and has to use it to fight. However, this is a character who's been used to using guns for so many years that the prospect of sword fighting is a bit foreign to him. While he does adjust to using the sword after a bit of practice, I still want to establish that he isn't exactly skilled as a swordfighter. What's a good way to demonstrate a character's lack of skill or understanding? In this case, it's a skill or art that the character dose not understand. However, not being experienced with weapons, I don't really have much experience to apply to this, though it's not entirely necessary. What I'm saying is, how can I properly demonstrate that this gun-wielding character is a novice with swords?
