Post a work of art you like and get book recommendations based on it
>inb4 Carnivore's Inquiry
>imagine my face when that was required reading in college
Not a stormfag, but 'le edgy ugly Jesus xD' art is not striking, not shocking, and not certainly not controversial anymore. It's nonsense. Not pleasing to the eye at all.
Shit, I was going to post that.
Oh well... Guess I'll go with a different Goya painting.
In general Larry Clark's photography
D/ic/k here, you guys have bretty gud taste in art
Im a babby reader, just finished De profundis and The Words, please recommend something a little more fantastical. Not dantes inferno, obviously
I'd post recommendations for others ITT, but I'm a pleb who doesn't read as often as he should.
Either this or Edwin Lanseer's Scene from Midsummer Night's Dream
This seems like the appropriate place to post this. I am indeed looking for a book.
It's... quite a weird one. It's one I read probably too young to understand it. I don't know the name, author or even general plot (as I couldn't really follow it all the way).
But I do remember some parts of it and was hoping maybe someone could help me find it. I've been dying to read it and see if I can understand it now (I'm about ten years older).
So from what I remember, it was fictional story. There was narration that made me feel like one person was describing what it was like to have multiple personalities. First it was from the point to view of a man then it was from the point of view of a woman who was clearly schizophrenic. It was almost as if the story was being told like a dream.
This is the weirdest part. I very distinctly remember a part where another person (he became the focus of the story, not like third person and separate from the schizophrenic person) was in a tub or something and making himself ejeculate with out hands or other stimulation. Just on the spot.
I also remember a different person watching a group of kids or something.
It was a really weird book, I was hoping to find it again. The book could have been yellow or orange and hard some weird art (maybe) on the front. I'm not sure anymore. And I don't know where to start.
I was hoping someone could give me some peace haha its been over 10 years since I've been looking. Any thoughts /lit/?
The first time that I saw this in person I had an emotional response and started crying. Nothing else has ever made me feel this way.

Your pseudo-rebelliousness is pathetic and, coupled with your enjoyment of facile nip '''''art''''', only leads me to conclude that you will never develop beyond the mindset of a frustrated adolescent. You should feel ashamed, you won't of course. You will claim I am butthurt and then continue to enjoy things which you shouldn't. I loathe you immensely.
I must confess that your apparent distaste for this genre of art gives me great satisfaction.
If you accept movies as art, this:

Not him, but unfortunately can't read French. Can't decide if Madden's take in English is worthwhile. Should I download it and see for myself? Or can you vouch for it, maybe?

This is the best premise for a thread I've seen in ages.
We have these threads time to time. Also: Lovecraft
It's a boy Don't say what I think you're going to say
>Echo fantasy novel by Francesca Lia Block, published in 2000 by Harper Collins. It follows the life of Echo, who, in her teens, meets a boy with angel wings, for whom she still finds herself waiting for years later.
Just kill me in my sleep already.
actually you know what? fuck you. seriously. you think the authors you jerk off to an a daily basis weren't into some weird shit? why don't you whizz on over to a little site called "google.com" and search up james joyce, yes, JAMES JOYCE, and his letters he wrote to his wife nora and then come back to me and tell me that because im into some stuff you consider "weird" or "uncouth" that im not allowed to read literature. i have a BA and am working on my masters lmfao. what the fuck are you doing? you probably work at chick fil a and read infinite jest over and over on your break thinking, "wow im such an intellectual, im so enlightened." literature is about expanding your horizons, it's about expressing your self and gaining knowledge. vore and its subkinks have a lot of SYMBOLIC WORTH and if written well can be an insightful journey into the human psyche. why dont you come at me with a real, well written argument about why i "dont deserve" to read literature? youre a fucking mouse, youre a rat in my world. im asking you right here and right now to be a man and construct a detailed and well worded response. are you up to the challenge?
i realized reading over this that you'll probably read it and think im "trolling" lmfao. let me tell you right now im fucking not. you judging me and harassing me over something i fucking take refuge in, something i feel safe with is frankly not fucking on, you little kid. whats your favorite book? the fucking great gatsby? come on hurry up and respond, i dont have all day here kiddy
name one thing you've accomplished. show me one thing you have done that is of any real worth at all. seriously. are you a writer? what do you know about literature? you think that because i like something that YOU DONT i should be shunned from society? you can seriously go fuck yourself right now. go to your little job at mcdonalds and then come home to your empty life with your mom and then jerk off your tiny cock while you insult people online for simply liking things you dont. you probably think im being really thin-skinned right now, but im not insulted, im just angry at your pathetic self righteous existence. still waiting on that well-written, well reasoned argument you have yet to pose to me. why should i be banned from reading literature because of my preferences? hurry up.
oh haha "autism, autism" what an exceptional argument and insult from 2012. really, im sobbing with shame and self-hate from this epic burn. do you even know what autism is? you fucking clowns, parroting memes over and over, patting each other on the back for your epic fucking wit. even if i did have autism, it's hardly an insult, since AGAIN; many authors YOU probably GET OFF to weren't neurotypical by any means and a handful of them were undoubtedly on the spectrum.
hey faggot, im still waiting to hear WHY I DON'T DESERVE TO READ LITERATURE just because i casually enjoy some slightly "kinky" things that deviate from convention. please, be my gueest and tell me why.
"autism" LMFAO. name 5 symptoms of autism that i display in those posts. are you all psychiatrists? fucking doubt it! posting "autism" with some stupid reaction image...god. is this really what this board has come to? LMFAO. happily awaiting your responses, fags. tell me how i have autism.
>and search up james joyce, yes, JAMES JOYCE
"kek", "autism"...you're really showing me how intelligent you are. here i am STILL waiting for that moron to just tell me why im supposedly barred from reading books just because i look at some "questionable" content online in my spare time. you morons keep "keking" and telling me how "autistic" i am. really, im having a fucking blast.
Are you knew to 4chan? You're probably trolling, but if not this is the funniest reaction I've ever seen. How fucking thin is your skin? You've written PARAGRAPHS in response to a single sentence. And not only do you keep going when he doesn't respond, you feel the need to defend yourself over and over, how weak willed are you?
Maybe tumblr is more for you
>You've written PARAGRAPHS in response to a single sentence.
His response is just so fucking absurd it's hilarious.
not a single one of you can refute me with a clever and well written response. it's all meme reaction image garbage that a fucking 12 year old could do. no, scratch that, a 12 year old could probably do a hell of a lot better than you morons - thinking back to when i was 12, i'd be fucking embarrassed for you and how retarded you all are. let me fucking break it down for you so you can all process it:
>i post an image i like, aware that it could be perceived as a little controversial, a little strange
>some fucking idiot faggot responds telling me that i DONT DESERVE to read books. do you know how fucking close minded and idiotic that is?? imagine sharing a part of you that you KNOW isn't exactly socially accepted on a website you thought was a safe space for you, due to its subversive nature, and having someone respond and tell you that you DONT FUCKING DESERVE to do one of the only things that keeps you sane, one of the only things you get genuine enjoy out of - the thing your building your entire livelihood and legacy from.
>respond telling him hes a fucking idiot
>people shitpost pathetic garbage calling you "autistic" - basically a buzzword that has lost ALL MEANING in this context over years of abuse.
fucking lol. you people genuinely think you're right and im wrong, that's what really cracks me up. keep being fucking delusional, living your pathetic, square, close minded existence. i'll keep looking at my "fucked up" vore and continue to make a living out of something you morons merely DREAM of.
>he has literally written a whole chapter at this point because someone pointed out his autistic fetish
Someone, please, screencap this fucking thread.
>Are you new to 4chan?
FUCKING LOL. I've been here since you were probably in middle school. hahahahaha you fucking idiot. if my skin were thin as you say i wouldnt be laughing at all your frankly FUCKING PATHETIC responses. how WEAK WILLED am i?? weak willed enough to get a fucking academic sponsorship for a literary research project thats probably only ever going to be a distant pipe dream for all of you "autistic" retards! but really, keep responding. this is a fucking dream come true.
trolling? you fucking wish i were trolling.
"you're trolling, you're autistic"
since stupid buzzwords and reaction images seem to be the only thing you idiots can comprehend, im no longer going to be responding to fuckwitted posts of this nature.
the only thing im "baiting" is that fucking idiot who insulted me for no reason originally to FUCKING RESPOND to me like a man. other than that, theres literally no bait here. typical morons, the internet has rotted your infant brains, overreacting like the complete morons you are to a simple inquiry. lmfao. i guess when you live at home with your mom you have to take entertainment where you can get it.
if at least ONE PERSON can refute me well, i will LEAVE this thread.
"bruh, you're trolling and you have autism xD"
*claps* BRILLIANT RESPONSE. i bet youre at the top of your class and the star of the fucking debate team.
more memes and pathetic reaction images. this is nauseatingly fucking pathetic.
Have you ever heard of a fucking lobotomy? because it sounds like youve had one!
nice misuse. the psychology behind vore and things like it is actually incredibly common. i really dont expect you to grasp any concept that wasnt assigned to you by your highschool english teacher though. enjoy your mediocre life.
What a strange picture, but then again this thread is the strangest I've ever seen on /lit/.
I'd refute u sociopath breh but the entertainment from your rectal devestation is the highlight of my boring night. pls don't go.
But tbqh famm, no one needs to refute you poppin a boner from people being consumed. That's yr shit and I guess no one can take that from you....?
Seriously though, casting out yr Israelites to the consumption of human beings is fucked up in every culture on this planet, regardless of specific mores.
Yr sick breh, shouldn't be surprised we all think so.
you fucking think that wanting to feel safe inside someone, getting so fed up of the world and all the idiots in it (read: YOU) and wanting to revert back to a state in-utero is uncommon and "weird"???? what the fuck do you think most of the books you read are based on? feelings of alienation, depression...this is real shit. i take refuge in vore because it prompts something inside me that NOTHING ELSE can. there, an actual coherent fucking response for you not that you deserve it. i know that mommy and daddy never gave you any attention when you were a little boy :'( but this pathetic cry for attention really wont solve your problems. whats really ironic is that you're trying to insult ME for liking vore when the outlet for your problems is trying to fuck with people and bring them down on and ANONYMOUS IMAGEBOARD. try and fucking process that for a second and see how much sense it makes. god, i seriously hope one day you look back at this and see how truly ridiculous you're being.
someone told me i DIDNT DESERVE to read literature and i responded in an actual fucking reasonable manner. just because i did so in more than one post (because i realized after posting that i had more to say) i guess i must be an "autistic troll" using "bait"
>insert standard tumblr reaction image here
words cannot even describe how pathetic you fucking morons are. im seriously in awe. how did the most retarded people on earth all congregate in one place at the exact same time to spew forth their stupid unfounded babyfaggot rhetoric?? the world may never fucking know.
and yet here i am, still waiting for a coherent response on how i dont deserve to read literature for my tastes. still waiting for someone intelligent to debate with who doesnt use memey words and viral reaction images in the place of actual original thought and articulation.
if anyones fucking autistic, its all of you. jesus christ. how many of you have jobs? how many of you live alone? how many of you have actually graduated school and are making a living off writing or publishing?? yet you have the gall to tell ME that i cant have anything to do with literature? now thats fucking autistic. but i guess since none of you can handle or comprehend the truth of the matter, i must be "trolling". fucking laughable
>you fucking think that wanting to feel safe inside someone, getting so fed up of the world and all the idiots in it (read: YOU) and wanting to revert back to a state in-utero is uncommon and "weird"????
Yes, creep. Legit if you talked to vore to anyone in public that person would never speak to you again.
>words cannot even describe how pathetic you fucking morons are. im seriously in awe. how did the most retarded people on earth all congregate in one place at the exact same time to spew forth their stupid unfounded babyfaggot rhetoric??
If you had the least bit of intelligence you might turn it around and ask: if everyone is riding me hard because of this, maybe there's at least some small part of it that's right?
But forget it, vorefags are mentally broken.
even if this was an apt comparison, do you think people with tumors deserve to be mocked and derided? your logic has a lot to be desired. if anyone here is a tumor, it's you. beleive me. you are the cancer of this society. you have never had a single original thought in your unimaginative, "tumor" of a brain. why dont you spend a couple days reflecting on what you want to do with your life instead of trying to mock someone who is CLEARLY unphased by your pathetic unfunny posturing.
why dont you explain how this is at all relevant to the debate at hand, and i will consider engaging you.
i simply cannot read this awful, nonsensical, incomprehensible garbage. im sure it is an accurate reflection of the pathetic asswipe who wrote it, though! remember to wipe the cheeto dust off your keyboard when you're done.
>i simply cannot read this awful, nonsensical, incomprehensible garbage. im sure it is an accurate reflection of the pathetic asswipe who wrote it, though! remember to wipe the cheeto dust off your keyboard when you're done.
he was defending you mate
>instead of trying to mock someone who is CLEARLY unphased by your pathetic unfunny posturing.
I bet if I copy pasted everything you have written in the thread so far it would be at least 5 pages. And it can't even be dismissed as a joke or troll any more, you're genuinely mentally deranged. And that's without getting into your actual person, I'm just talking in relation to your fetish.
Just wondering anon, what board(s) have you been frequenting "for years" that have sheltered you from any slight criticism about anything? I like to come to /lit/ and /ic/ *specifically* for the brutal feedback.
And I'll defend him too.
You know kid, I like the enthusiasm and if for nothing else, I appreciate your fetish because I didn't know debauchery of mind had gone so far until now. The sentence that triggered you to the amusement of every single one who has read your reactions is of course ridiculous; your fetish could be to eat newborns and I wouldn't say you don't deserve to read. If it's any consolation, I'd eat the shit out of you senpai.
im officially done. trying to reason with you fuckers was basically the online equivalent of trying to reason with some kind of down syndrome ward for children born with severe disabilities who were abandoned by their parents.
before i leave though, let me just say this: not a single one of you has said anything of worth to me. not as a refutation, not even your so called "mockery" was anything remotely clever. when you look in the mirror at the end of another miserable failure of a day, contemplating you absolute abortion of a life, i want you to think back to this thread and consider how absolutely retarded you all would look to anyone with an IQ over 100. when you think about how no one loves you, how you have no career, how literally no one has anything resembling respect for you, think about this post. think about how i am the only one with even a modicum of sense out of any one of you.
im not posting in this thread again. i sincerely hope you all get cancer and everyone you love dies violently and horribly.
>You know kid, I like the enthusiasm and if for nothing else, I appreciate your fetish because I didn't know debauchery of mind had gone so far until now

I cannot stop laughing. What a well written post, truly.
>trying to reason with you fuckers was basically the online equivalent of trying to reason with some kind of down syndrome ward for children born with severe disabilities who were abandoned by their parents.
It's more the equivalent of yelling at a bunch of guys who called you weird. They laugh at your yelling so you yell louder, and they laugh harder so you yell louder still
Okay dude you want a legitimate reply here you go.
Do you deserve to read literature? Of course. We can judge virtually nothing about you from the fact that you like vore and your admittedly over-zealous replies, so it's unfair to just straight up mock you. I think many people would agree with that.
That being said, you have to be willing to be reasonable about the average person's tolerance to niche sexual interests.
If you're on an anonymous internet forum you're going to get mocked if you're upfront about things that are outside of the norm, (prticularly if they are way waaay outside the norm). So I think most people here are taking note of the fact that you are responding so thoroughly to some internet stranger essentially saying "fuck you", His reply to yours was nothing more than a way of saying "i think your tastes are fucked up". And that should not ignite this next level rage in you.
When we're talking vore it's straight up disgusting and disturbing to a lot of people (cannibalism is like near universally condemned, so to take in a sexual direction, particularly the kind of vaguely pedophilic direction your image did is like seriously separating yourself from the typically accepted sexual kinks). Is that fair? No. Is it rational? No. But you can't be losing your mind whenever someone is vocal about disagreeing with you.
Consider how much emotional capital would have been saved if you had just replied "Yeah I like vore, fuck you" or whatever. This is 4chan dude, the insults should mean nothing to you.
And I know you claim they don't but let's get real your replies seriously seem to indicate that you aren't kicking back and laughing this off. If you were, why the defensiveness against a random 4chan poster?
Breh shoulda started with the Greeks
Your lack of morality stems from your anonymity here on this Malaysian cave painting aggregator and on the Internet in general.
As >>7701848 sez, if you brought your erotic fixation on vore to anyone in real life, they would leave your general vicinity as soon as was physically possible and do their best to never encounter you again.
You're sociopath breh. Tbph.
Also, for the sake of the goddamn thread, pic related.
Threads like this are the reason I still bother to come on 4chan
