ITT: niggas post their 5 fav writers and others try to guess stuff about them niggas IRL
I'm learning Latin so this is bound to change in the near future, as I begin to become capable of reading texts in their original, or at least less perverted, language.
Pessimistic about human nature
One groovy cat
Wants to travel
Pessimist about life
Succesful in a career
Disappointed by life (what did you expect, man?)
Do a good amount of drugs
Wannabe tough guy
The stress on your body makes it stronger. Muscles undergo hypertrophy in response. Joints and ligaments get stronger too. Having more muscle mass significantly reduces the chance that cancer is able to spread and grow in your body. Lifting also prevents osteoporosis, which is common in women. My grandmother got it, so I know that my family members should be lifting to prevent and slow it down.
Shit, what the fuck? That's 100% perfectly correct.
hats off to satanic trips, 40ies, clinical analytical, well paid and respected
Romantic, although likes to debate the contrary, works in retail/support
Left BEE off the list because was afraid /lit would laugh at him, gay, owns a fullsize mirror
lets try the opposite
>Romantic, although likes to debate the contrary, works in retail/support
Accurate, with the exception of the retail/support guess. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing stand-up comedy.
To the people posting Kafka, Cioran and all that other depressing shit: read the Unabomber's manifesto. I know, it's shit stylistically and basically the ramblings of a retard, but he touches on the social reasons as to why people generally feel lost and alienated from a right wing perspective. It may or may not mean something to you, but it's worth a look.
Nope. People are just too scared to name anyone in the original meme trilogy apart from Joyce
French or Swiss
You went/are in college but you don't care about getting a degree. Only taking classes you're interested in.
Older then 30. Disillusioned with most people.
See the beauty and tragedy in life as it is. Probably do a lot of psychedelics.
Uptight, likes everything to be categorized.
Here are Mine
Gabriel García Márquez
You like buttsex a little too much.
Doing drugs doesn't make you cool.
lol you're American.
This >>7568711 might be right, but you have good taste.
You're younger than 22 and don't have a girlfriend.
why you suppose that im lying, im free to enjoy any author i want, even so 4 of this names have adapted their work to live action films and tv shows, that alone should tell you the great quality of their books
>Which favorite authors indicate that a poster is down with the DFC?
>Which favorite authors indicate that a poster is into fatty titcows?
Nigga, u dumb as shit. Working out causes stress to your body. Then your body reacts to the stress by building muscle, strengthening joints, making bones more dense, and many other things. Thus your body is less susceptible to stress in the future. So in your weightlifting program you make it more stressful. This compounds until with diminished returns. So a natural lifter will eventually only be making an ounce of muscle per year, basically he can't gain muscle anymore. At this point though you are so strong that daily activities cause no stress to your body, as it is well adapted to stress already.
It's the same with cardiovascular health. Your heart can only beat for so long before it fails. So if your heart rate is too high it will fail faster. Thus it is important to strengthen your heart so that it takes less pumps to get the blood circulated throughout your system. By doing cardio you do raise your heart rate. Is that counter-intuitive because a raised heart rate is bad? No, because it is a temporary stress, and your body will adapt to having a slower heart rate while resting.
Pretty good assessment honestly.
Although I would say I'm less annoying at the Pseuds and more disappointed they can't appreciate a wider variety of art.
But eh, that's semantics.
Robert Anton Wilson
H.P. Lovecraft but he is a stretch because I have only read 2 of he's stories.
>philip k dick
Quiet, spend a lot of time replaying conversations you had with people earlier in the day/week, frustrated by the perceived mediocrity of your own life and desperate to validate your existence. You dislike tattoos.
You unapolagetically steal lines from books you read and pass them off as wit or wisdom in conversation. You aren't an angry person, except in very short and explosive bursts. You like winter more than summer.
You have a hero complex and tend to seek out "damaged" women, either consciously or unconsciously, because you feel like you can "save" them. You get uncomfortable walking from the light switch to your bed after turning off the light. You're impartial toward ice cream.
You have that weird personality quirk where you feel like you're better than most of the people you meet but you also hate yourself. You have fantasized about being an omnipotent ruler at one point or another, in considerable detail. You haven't dated much lately.
As for my five:
>mfw everyone in this thread is describing themselves and we are just very much alike
Pretty much right except I don't steal lines from books and pass them off as wit or wisdom in conversations. I always give credit to the author. Never have I ever plagiarized once in my college academic career. I do prefer winter over summer. Can't stand heat and humidity.
I'm not much of an angry person, more or less just fed up.
The light switch thing is correct, I've always had an irrational fear of the dark, especially since I'm horribly nearsighted.
The other assessment not so much because
I'm a heterosexual woman. What does that mean about the "damaged" part?
With O'Connor and West on your list I'd assume you're a down to Earth, almost gritty individual (in a good way). Realistic
I meant to keep that gender-neutral. Anyway, I meant that you tend to date people with obvious character flaws because you think you can "fix" them. I suppose I just sort of gleaned that from all the fantasy authors and the tropes of the scifi/fantasy genre.
You're uncertain what to do with your life, probably listen to indie music, read in public and you've cheated on a boyfriend.
You dropped out of college because you felt that it was beneath you and you want to publish your own novel someday which you have not started.
You like to appear smart but you're actually not
You enjoy vodka but you're also slightly antisemitic
>Am I shitty for liking it?
You can get that rush from having sex in semi-public or other adventurous things. Adrenaline plus sex does not always equal to adultery.
Maybe you've only found well-read girls that happen the be amoral. I find the opposite is true, typically the most well read are shy.
You love devil's advocate arguments. Not to be contrarian, but because you believe every view needs to be heard, even if it is stupid.
Go against the flow because you always have. But you go with it too. You have your own path, sometimes following what's popular, sometimes following what is least.
Last I read danger was an aphrodisiac. I kind of enjoy the thrill of sneaking around behind the back of a girls partner. I've done semi public things before and it wasn't the same for me. What is your experience with semi public vs cheating? Do you prefer one or the other?
Shy girls, at least the ones I have known, always have a hidden wildness and dirtiness to them, which I like. They are just better at hiding it behind the modest outfits and friendliness.
I'm slightly disappointed. By the way how old are you? For practical reasons go and be an RN. It's good pay, and job stability from what I hear. Definitely one of the better options in terms of what degree to get. Being an author is probably everyone's dream on /lit/ but it's not practical. You have to get lucky or have connections. If you're an RN though, you can write on the side and try to get published but you won't have to worry about being homeless or having to eat stale bread and drink puddle water to survive because you'll have a good cashflow. Not to mention if you have kids you'll be able to provide for them too. Most writers are dirt poor.
Nothing will ever beat the time I was having sex with my first bf (my first) , and then my parent's came home from a church Elder session early.
The implications, the risks... Pure thrill, nothing more or less.
Wouldn't meeting a loyal, literate woman benefit you and your descents more than a single, sexually liberal one?
>Wouldn't meeting a loyal, literate woman benefit you and your descents more than a single, sexually liberal one?
Yes, you're probably right. But attached women who cheat are hotter than single ones for some reason. You've never even been tempted to cheat?
Sorry for the late reply, but here it is anyway.
Summarized, it's' great. Motivation is much better, I feel more immersed and amused, my interpretation is more creative and effortless without being too far-fetched. In general, it makes most things better.
The microdose really is key though. I never go above 25μg when it's LSD, or above 75mg when it's mescaline. Beyond that, you enter the realm of inane acid/peyote philosophy, non-coherent, blabbering and idiotic. When you aim so low that you can hardly feel you're on it, that's where the magic is. More of a tweak to thought than an entire transformation of it.
It's subtle but great. Hoffman, the inventor of LSD, thought that if it weren't for the rampant abuse of it by the hippies, it might have taken the place of methylphenidate/amphetamines for those suffering from ADD, as a healthier, safer alternative. I'm inclined to agree - at microdoses, the effects are not entirely unlike a therapeutic dose of stimulants, but sans autism and obsessive tendencies, the two primary drawbacks I suffer from when I'm on stims.
Is how he is spelled in many places, and actually closer to the original greek.
Don't be an American. And if you are and can't help it, don't let it show.
good taste. probably prone to random bouts of admiration.
you are in your early twenties
you feel like there should be meaning in the world, but you can't seem to find it.
you are a person that lives life around simple creature comforts like a good meal or nice drink
you have a dark sense of humor
you aren't terribly insecure or neurotic, a very stable person emotionally.
terribly neurotic, but you have high hopes for yourself and the world, and a good imagination.
You haven't read a lot of stuff yet.
you like prose with a strong voice and personality. you're somewhat young or otherwise new to reading, because you gravitate toward the more accessible side of the spectrum. not that there's anything wrong with that.
You should read Dennis Cooper because he's way better than BE Ellis at literally everything BE Ellis wants to do.
You read for fun, unlike a lot of this board, and you've probably been doing so for a very long time. also RL STine is the shit.
you like Saunders, so you're probably a fucking uber left lib-tard and i hate you....
okay, i've only read a few things by him. but i think he's a heavy handed hack from what i've read.
i know you're trolling, but do people actually think like this? overweight/unhealthy people who ignore conclusive scientific research that proves going to the gym is beneficial for your overall physical and mental health?
You prefer the scent of dry flowers to that of fresh ones
I guess so? or not
You liked the idea of the tooth fairy
>Saunders, a heavy handed hack from what i've read
Which of his would be supposed to convince one otherwise? Still trying to understand the repeated praise
Gombrowicz is top tier modernist. I can't accept this retardation on /lit, where some people can't appreciate his work, and at the same time, other's still discuss shity modern philosophers like Žižek. I've really liked this board for a while, had some worthwhile discussions, but opinions like this are just unbearable.
P. cool dude, but overly intellectualizes things. Other people around him often want him to shut up. The reason I know he's actually p. cool is because Elmore Leonard.
Edgy. Good list, except that he has Ryu Murakami on there which means he has either A) only read Almost Transparent Blue, or B) has super shitty tasty that desires edginess for the sake of being edgy. But then again, maybe he's a pretty cool dude, because his other four authors are pretty good choices. My guess is that he teaches English in Osaka.
Comparative Lit major at a UC school
Just started reading yesterday
Tries to be the most pretentious of his friends. Doesn't drink alcohol. Always the designated driver. His friends end up feeling a little guilty about asking him to hang out because they feel like they're using him, but they still invite him out because they do actually like him and still need that ride anyway.
Thinking about going to law school, lean conservative. Smokes cigarettes.
Boring as fuck human.
Studied abroad in Argentina. Favorite alcoholic drink is red wine.
16 years old.
You think you are much more creative than you actually are. You are genuinely curious about the world but also extremely egotistical. You are an only child with a mild jesus complex. When you do drugs, you flip the fuck out and are awful for your chiller friends to be around. That you like Tolstoy is the only balance against these sort of inclinations, and you realize that you ought to be more grounded, but have a tough time with it. You get around Tolstoy's groundedness by focusing more on his mysticism/religious aspects.
PC is techier and the sci-fi you chose is techy type sci-fi. You're more inclined to like functionality over consoles. You may even be an engineer of some sort, but not necessarily.
You're no older than twenty and you think you know what communism is without having a read a word of communist literature. (Try it sometime, especially Stalinist sci-fi; you'll like it if you like Asimov.)
