An Inexplicable Feeling Hipster Slut 15/06/25(Thu)00:16 No. 17436 [Reply]

Where were you when you realised that there are seemingly countless intricacies all around you, even (or especially) in the mundane? Did you feel the awe of observation, the latent power in your observational capacities, did you feel like a child holding the world in your hands? What emotion did the knowledge that with nothing but a keen eye you can schism reality into two, both equally true and real? Did strange tears cross your cheek as mine did, do you feel newborn with infinite possibilities, with the realisation that with the shaft of an eye you have the power to construct and deconstruct life itself?

But, do you also feel that with such an insight you were removed from any perceivable reality even more just for understanding it inside your head?
Also that your see-through vision is tempered with emotion that alters them on subconscious impulse? It matters not that you understand the why and how. Do you too feel cursed now at the ultimate realisation that it is all for nought, that your almost messiah-like abilities, though giving you great wisdom, is attempting to rip your soul from a body not resigned to death?

What does one name this feeling?

These are the kinds of thoughts that are born in the idle minds of idle bodies. They are not to be welcomed nor fed. Doing physical labor, even cleaning the dishes or mowing the lawn, is more favorable than entertaining such fruitless thought patterns.

If I needed a short list of best books chosen by the internet comunity by language wich would they be. For now specially interested in English spanish and french. But maybe it could extend, open for discussion.

I must have misunderstood your request. In any case, if you have no other criteria beyond 'best' books, the western canon is a reasonable place to start.

I hope that you undrstand that using this language to comunicate with you is quite hard actually, a bit primitive. I am sure ther has to be a list of a few books above the average in every language. (tu vais, petit chinge, je suis capable d'utiliser les adjectifs)

I need my fix of good literature because only recently have I stopped flooding my head with that fraud that is called philosopy.

Since I'm spanish and I'm counting with the fact that many of you are not pretty much anny suggestion might serve.

I'm looking for a good lighthearted adventure like Stevenson's or a raw, crude, careless one (should I say "morals free) like Blood Meridian or other Mcharthy novels.

I do not have a problem at all with touching any subject.

Inmersive novels are very welcome too, since I'm also leaving my videogame and procrastination life and thus i need good material to start exercising my imagination.

I trust you good taste!

Try Woman In The Dunes by Kobo Abe. On one hand it's a quite whimsical and absurd, although dark and claustrophobic adventure. On the other hand it's a thoughtful, primal and beautiful depiction of the mundane, the primal and the ridiculous of human experience. It can be light, poetic and enteraining in a darkish way, or cryptic and analytic, or something in the between depending how you take it.

This board is as slow as 4Chan's old, defunct text boards.

This makes it kinda meaningful to ask questions here. True, there may be some answer in the generals, but then you gotta watch it all the time.

Why are some people so infatuated with Lovecraft? He is probably the most overrated horror writer ever.

He is basically emulating Hindu mythology and name drops 40 000 different gods while building some pseudo-imaginative netherworld where everything boils down to madness and hurr nothing makes sense durr. Pretty much every neckbeards wet dream besides watching anime.

Lovecraft is really bland. That's the bottom line.

Lovecraft fans are in general neckbeards.

Yeah. Probably because Lovecrafts storytelling is as amusing as Star Wars lore.

The sword handle on the cover is shaped like a phallus. Pretty gay.

Great site. Thanks

Hipster Slut 15/09/30(Wed)00:21 No. 17484

Still working as of now. There are some great rare books in here.

One question though. Why does every secret book collection with books I find interesting about survivalist, homesteading, obscure history, etc. have to have one file filled with really dumb racist hate rants, nazi fanboy bullshit, and "the jews are gonna get ya!" books. Its like nothing can be solely for one purpose everything has to have some kookville militant shit or just be useless eco-living pussy literature for bored housewives and hippies with no imagination or natural intuition.
