Is there a term for a weeaboo-like person, who, instead of loving Japanese culture, loves Russian culture? There ought to be. I'm talking about the motherfuckers who read Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, who play Metro 2033 and Red Orchestra, and watch Stalker and Come and See. Hell, they may even own a Mosin-Nagant There's gotta be enough of them out there for a label to exist

I have a distrust of the word "hobby". I'm British with a mild feeling of superiority over and contempt for America. I feel like "hobby" is one of those plebeian American words, like "proactive". I'm not sure why I dislike it though, for reasons other than my bigotry. Please don't back with, "hurr it's because you don't have hobbies and you are jelly of people who do." It's not the "hobbies" themselves that I dislike, it's the way the word hobby is used to try and reduce every passion you might have in life to some sort of impersonal "activity" that can be listed on a "personal profile" on your dating website page, or on your "resumé". Any one else have similar feelings about this word?

Hi /lit/, can you explain intersectionality to me? I see this term bandied around a lot, but I lack a clear understanding of what it means. As far as I can tell, the word is used in many different contexts, e.g. >there is oppression along several different axes of identity (gender, race, class, etc.) >a member of several minorities experiences more oppression than a member of a single minority >a member of several minorities experiences more oppression than would be accounted for by the minorities alone (i.e. different forms of oppression can reinforce each other) >oppression of one kind may mask oppression of another kind >a protest march can use intersectionality to gather more support (i.e. the union of multiple groups may stand up for the intersection of those groups) But it all seems a bit vague. I'm not exactly sure how to "use" intersectionality to shed light on current issues.

Is it me, or is Lovecrafts style of writing pretty shit? It's overly descriptive, and underly emotional, with no real character development. I honestly can't remember a single one of the characters within his stories.

I come this week with a new poem, however as it has been the case for already two or three weeks, it has nothing to do with Rebecca Black and, for a change, has nothing to do with love (well, let's say with physical love). In fact, I wrote this poem as an answer to many of my friends who complained about the city life and capitalism. Je vis Babylone // se dresser de ses tours; Je lui pris la cuisse // et d'or lui fit l'amour. Je vis les cerbères, // ces grands pasteurs d'hommes Errant de par ses rues // pourchassant Sodome. Ma chère je t'adore, // ô cité bachique, Toi et tes usines; // chiennes métalliques: Elles sont là renversées // vomissant leur soufre; Crachat méphitique // que joyeux j'engouffre ! Je vis tes rivales // aux venins et velours Vaciller un instant; // chuter dans un cri sourd. Je vis les chimères // qui crachaient leurs poisons Affolées de haines // et de leur déraison . Je surplombai tes toits // de bronze coruscant; Je respirai ton air // âcre et suffocant. De tes si hauts jardins // se jetèrent les fous Craignant jusqu'à ta chair; // jusqu'à tes maux si doux ! S'étend sur toi huileux // l'éclat ivre du soir; Il s'écrase lascif, // se couchant en un loir. Des lueurs sélènes // nappent ta carcasse; Je bois Babylone: // elle est mon Parnasse. Je suis en train, en ce moment même, d'écrire un poème assez long sur la vouivre, donc pour quelques temps je n'écrirai plus de nouveaux poèmes.

Hey /int/, my birthday is coming up soon, and I've got some things I want. I was wondering if I should treat myself to some digital books, since I own a kindle fire and it's allowed me to read anywhere whenever, and just about any book. I was wondering if I should buy a proper bookshelf and possibly begin collecting actual literature? I only own childish books. I was considering kicking the collection off with Lolita. Any thoughts?

What does /lit/ think of China Mieville? I borrowed his book Perdido Station and I must admit after reading the first 10 pages I felt like throwing up from an overdose of purple prose. I kept reading but gave up on page 50. Something about a girl/insect hybrid with antennae on her head in a relationship with an akward human professor in a sort of steampunk city setting. I dunno. Does anyone like him? I get the strong impression he's a pretentious wanker who writes uninteresting books...but other people have told me good things.

I was just wondering if anyone else has read the city of ember book series/seen the movie, and did you guys enjoy it? i personally loved it, perhaps due to the fact that i have a fetish for post-apocalyptic movies/games/books like fallout 3 and the walking dead, and i was wondering if my love of this genre has clouded my thoughts and made me love this book franchise despite bad reviews and its flop in the box office when the film version was made.

Hey /lit/ I'm a visitor from /o/ on my first trip to your board. I'm also knackered from writing essays, so forgive any offences. I'm writing an essay on the ethical and moral themes of Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales' for my final assignment in my final year at university. Problem is, I'm a medieval studies student, and this is an English module, taught by an English teacher, just that the subject matter is a little bit medieval. My university is a bit of a shambles really. The question is ''Central to Chaucer's comic tales are serious moral and ethical themes.' Discuss.' Now I know a bit about Chaucer's works, I've done a couple of essays already on him. My main problem is that I've left this to the last minute and had 10'000 words in yesterday, so I'm shattered and mentally drained. Would someone care to help me out finding sources/developing arguments? The essay isn't due for another 10 hours yet, and is only 3000 words long, so there's no major rush. Does anyone here know much of Chaucer?
