What do you think is the most important thing to read/study as a rapper? (besides rap)
Poetry? Philosophy? Books about pop culture?
Despite being praised for my writing, I can't help but think that the most accessible medium of art to reach the most demographics is rap. Writing prose, in certain situations, can lead to insular environments of undeserved praise and essentially, mental masturbation. On the other hand, rap critics can be relentlessly harsh, as they range from professional music critics to the average nignog.

Yeah, I know, stoopid question, it's Pynchon. But why getting so interested and making so many thread, quite a way out? It's not out until September 17th, more than a couple of months from now. I can understand if it was a 'proper' Pynchon book, but since it's only medium length and has more in common with Vineland than Lot 49, why get so excited about it?
Having said that, I intend to buy a copy, but maybe wait for paperback.

how's it going /lit/
I think food is the only pure hedonistic good.
Sex can be marred by a number of factors.
Drug use is unsustainable and bears many negative consequences.
Any kind happiness of a social origin, in reality, is, like most things that is not food, subject to many hindrances of a negative nature.
Reading a book can also be subject to a number of irritating or discomforting factors. Perhaps your expectations of the book do not match how it is.
Food is unswerving in its ability to induce pure and ephemeral joy with a great deal of authenticity. I just, for example, had some baked cheesecake that my mother cooked.
