how do you guys feel about the idea of Fichte/Schelling's idea of 'universal consciousness', a common sentiment that runs through the people of a society, and Spengler's idea of civilizations sharing similar traits/worldviews (as well as life-cycles). can a man ever be more than just a product of his time? and are we, as western civilization, in our death throes? agree/disagre?

Hey /lit/ Do you know any good books about cocaine as a recreational drug? I've read Less Than Zero and Rules of Attraction this week and I'd like something along those lines, I guess.

I don't know if this is exactly the right board to ask this on, but I don't really think there is a *right* board to do it on, but forgive me if this off-topic. Why does 4chan seem to attract so many depressed people?

I believe this book was also published to disestablish the contemporary theories revolving around WW II that there were clear 'good' guys and 'bad' guys. A contemporary backlash against the propaganda.

I cant find a couple of books on language and history anywhere on the internet. Here is the list Zones of Exclusion: Pripyat and Chernobyl by Robert Polidori Fluent Forever by Gabriel Wyner Nicholas Brown, The New Penguin Russian Course Thomas Beyer, Pronounce It Perfectly in Russian if any of you have torrent sites, or tracker communities accepting applications, that would be lovely and before you post about me not referring to the sticky, It just sent me to this shitty site about proxies and cyberware bullshit through CloudFare. Thanks in advance!

Lolita:A Screenplay

0 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So has anybody ever read this? I just started. As someone who's written some short-film screenplays and learned the ropes of proper script formatting, it's cringe-worthy reading (constantly giving camera direction, etc.) and Nabakov's introduction is funny to read from the perspective of someone who works with filmmakers and knows all the pitfalls of the collaborative process (which Nabakov states he abhors). It's also very clever and playful. He breaks the fourth wall constantly in the prologue, and so far it's a fast and chipper read (I'm at the part where Humbert and Lo meet for the first time). Thoughts? Also Nabakov general.

Anyone read this yet? I want to read it so badly but I haven't been able to find it in any bookstores near me. I'll probably just order it online soon

Hey /lit/, pls r8 this text I wrote last week. Don’t mind any syntax errors, it wasn't written in English at first (not mother language). Hope anyone enjoy. “ ‘Cow dung is sold in cans’ I heard this shit and I decided to go home, quickly. Put the peas in olive oil for frying, a hamburger for grill, light up a cigarette and start writing about my time. Writing about the post-post-post-modernity, up because we were so drained of our creative force by the huge mosquito of work that we couldn’t establish new denominations. Nothing is distinct now. Everything is relative, is its precept as well as that of the slap is the Christian’s. Not sure if you can recall, but there’s that horde of idiots in the Catholic Church who hide themselves behind biblical arguments and lighted quotes when in fact they have hidden sexual desire with blond transvestites called Margareth. You, artists of now days (since even this is an inaccurate terminology and may complicate the understanding, though I don’t have great appreciation for the terminologies) are just like them, or even worst. Well, the time has come to write about the second decade of the XXI century. Then I realized that the peas were burnt. The damn burnt smell. It’s such a good smell, if not for the food wasted. Living of art, just of art, albeit receiving a lifetime monthly stipend from the government, even today, is madness. As the mother cited by Baudelaire, that would rather have given birth to snakes than to a poet, well, good poets meet a lot of people like these mothers. But what can I say about the contemporary itself? First, starting with the most important, I see the absolute decadence of the bars. I mean the GOOD ones. Bars in which there’s a snooker table, good beer, snacks bums, plastic tables, good music, attractive and crazy women willing to forget life for just one night, once in a while, why not? Also fights, plus reasonable prices and peace to someone who wants to stay in a selfish and internal laughter. And a hearty laugh too, when the time asks for it. But above all, so that there is a bar there is something essential, something that cannot miss in any way: people. Real people. I'm tired of seeing bags of meat with deep dark circles so dependent on phones and electronic gadgets that would give his asshole for their iPhones if there was an app for that. It's terrible to have to share your time, your precious life, with people who are living just to kill time, have a snack here and there, adopting a pet and pampering him, hating street pets; using animals obtain sex, fuck a woman like who staples a page in a law office on a Wednesday morning. They are there, everywhere, and came not to bring anything. Cybernetic parasites of Earth, a monstrous fern covered with trinkets, a universal majesty with mantle silicon: the pure and dumb information crawling brains and covering them with mud.” [Probably continues]
