I find it satisfying to learn that parasitic barnacles that sterilize crabs have their own hyperparasites that do the same thing to them. And that these are isopods, which makes them crustaceans that leech on crustaceans that leech on crustaceans.

I probably shouldn't loathe barnacles as much as I do, since they've never done anything to me, but I feel no need to stop.

a part of me is aware that i do not need to eat anything else today. another part of me is aware that there is fried chicken and rice in the fridge. i believe this situation to be a strong enough example of a conflict of personal interests, which requires conscious decision making, therein showing an instance of conscious agency, giving way to a type of a free will to exist within a causal universe.

I always tend to overwork at first but never finish due to tapering off until right before a deadline, where I'll finish everything in a burst after that period of minimal work. Without the deadline present, I end up leaving things unfinished, which causes a sense of regret to loom over me. In spite of this, it's still difficult to actually finish without a deadline for me.

A friend of mine gave up on her wedding. And she's single now. And i am happy. This is so wrong...

The fact is that already have someone that i already love. But now i am feeling a destructive impulse. A impulse to fuck with someone's life once more.

If done, it won't be the first, nor the second time i made it.

Maybe that is why i do not have luck when it comes to love: because i'm always doing something to others, to not have luck is fate's punishment.

I REALLY SHOULD STOP DOING THIS.
I'm starting to feel like there really is something like the concept of origin, and that mine origin is something like conflict or another destructive behavior.

So how vs. ED?

At this point it's hard to say. Star Citizen is still in pre-alpha, really. The dogfighting module is up, but not really complete. At current, my computer really won't run it well enough for it to be playable anyway. I'm gonna have to majorly upgrade the graphics card. My current setup runs E:D at High with no trouble, but E:D has been optimized pretty well.

It's... not that great a game in my opinion. Also, I think Capcom no longer has the license, so getting an HD remake will be difficult.

You know, every human is worthless to some extent. Why should it matter? The world keeps spinning no matter which human is or isn't this or that. What good is an aim or being great at something? I'm technically a genius (Yeah, believe it or not. I don't.) and I can very well be at the peak of any field I choose. I threw all that away, spending most of my time dicking around with games while trying my hand at becoming a writer. The only thing I live for is the challenge of competing against other people and the fun of a good story. I do despise myself for wasting potential and being a parasite but in the end that's really all I need.

So ask yourself. What have you enjoyed? Do it. It doesn't matter if you dedicate yourself to it or something else or a hundred different things or nothing, just have some fun with it and live life.

Lol, that was fun. Tomoya told Sunohara who was sleeping in class to wake up because he had to answer a question, and Sunohara asked Tomoya what the question was. Tomoya told him to sing the lyrics to his favorite song...

...so he sang "Won't you take my hand! Something something man! Something something something something got to do!"

I like the fact that this is actually a real song, and not some random lyrics that were just made up for the scene. Sunohara's "singing" references the chorus, which starts at 1:18 in this video.

Bad idea.

It's like...

The taste of ultimate depression (ie; Weetabix), mixed with the taste of pleasure: chocolate.

It doesn't work. They don't really balance each other out, they just blend together to form a taste of bland, disappointing mediocrity that's somehow worse than the other two put together.

I wouldn't know, I haven't read the Silmarillion, but what I've read of all four of his books, hobbit to whatsitsface the third book, was definitely worse. The Silmarillion actually gets off easy, having been the Tokien work that I haven't read, and thus harbour no particular hatred for.

isn't it easier to type it out with both hands on the keyboard, than it is to type the message, then go back and highlight with a mouse, and then have to press the button? shit seems way too laborious compared to holding shift a few times with your hands in mostly the same position.

You know, it's ironic. People who liked the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film but disliked the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film fail to realize that, when Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, first came out, it was disliked by Roald Dahl, the author of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book. People who like Sean Connery as James Bond, but not Daniel Craig, failed to realize that when James Bond first came out, starring Sean Connery, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, said that it was not accurate to what he wrote (he did not explicitly dislike it, though). Daniel Craig James Bond tries to be a bit more book-accurate. People who say that Dracula Untold "ruined" the story of Dracula fail to realize that the story of Dracula "ruined" Vlad III (as our esteemed Lancer of Black would tell you).

No. It was somehow like that feeling you get when you're too long in the sun, and then you suddenly stand up and stretch, and because of that you get dizzy and don't see a damn thing for a second or two.

The difference was that I didn't get dizzy, and my vision didn't return after those seconds. I couldn't see anything for around five minutes.

Taking arms against Harry Potter, at this moment, is to emulate Hamlet taking arms against a sea of troubles. By opposing the sea, you won't end it. The Harry Potter epiphenomenon will go on, doubtless for some time, as J. R. R. Tolkien did, and then wane.

The official newspaper of our dominant counter-culture, The New York Times, has been startled by the Potter books into establishing a new policy for its not very literate book review. Rather than crowd out the Grishams, Clancys, Crichtons, Kings, and other vastly popular prose fictions on its fiction bestseller list, the Potter volumes will now lead a separate children's list. J. K. Rowling, the chronicler of Harry Potter, thus has an unusual distinction: She has changed the policy of the policy-maker.

Imaginative Vision

I read new children's literature, when I can find some of any value, but had not tried Rowling until now. I have just concluded the 300 pages of the first book in the series, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," purportedly the best of the lot. Though the book is not well written, that is not in itself a crucial liability. It is much better to see the movie, "The Wizard of Oz," than to read the book upon which it was based, but even the book possessed an authentic imaginative vision. "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" does not, so that one needs to look elsewhere for the book's (and its sequels') remarkable success. Such speculation should follow an account of how and why Harry Potter asks to be read.

The ultimate model for Harry Potter is "Tom Brown's School Days" by Thomas Hughes, published in 1857. The book depicts the Rugby School presided over by the formidable Thomas Arnold, remembered now primarily as the father of Matthew Arnold, the Victorian critic-poet. But Hughes' book, still quite readable, was realism, not fantasy. Rowling has taken "Tom Brown's School Days" and re-seen it in the magical mirror of Tolkein. The resultant blend of a schoolboy ethos with a liberation from the constraints of reality-testing may read oddly to me, but is exactly what millions of children and their parents desire and welcome at this time.

In what follows, I may at times indicate some of the inadequacies of "Harry Potter." But I will keep in mind that a host are reading it who simply will not read superior fare, such as Kenneth Grahame's "The Wind in the Willows" or the "Alice" books of Lewis Carroll. Is it better that they read Rowling than not read at all? Will they advance from Rowling to more difficult pleasures?

Rowling presents two Englands, mundane and magical, divided not by social classes, but by the distinction between the "perfectly normal" (mean and selfish) and the adherents of sorcery. The sorcerers indeed seem as middle-class as the Muggles, the name the witches and wizards give to the common sort, since those addicted to magic send their sons and daughters off to Hogwarts, a Rugby school where only witchcraft and wizardry are taught. Hogwarts is presided over by Albus Dumbeldore as Headmaster, he being Rowling's version of Tolkein's Gandalf. The young future sorcerers are just like any other budding Britons, only more so, sports and food being primary preoccupations. (Sex barely enters into Rowling's cosmos, at least in the first volume.)

Harry Potter, now the hero of so many millions of children and adults, is raised by dreadful Muggle relatives after his sorcerer parents are murdered by the wicked Voldemort, a wizard gone trollish and, finally, post-human. Precisely why poor Harry is handed over by the sorcerer elders to his priggish aunt and uncle is never clarified by Rowling, but it is a nice touch, suggesting again how conventional the alternative Britain truly is. They consign their potential hero-wizard to his nasty blood-kin, rather than let him be reared by amiable warlocks and witches, who would know him for one of their own.

The child Harry thus suffers the hateful ill treatment of the Dursleys, Muggles of the most Muggleworthy sort, and of their sadistic son, his cousin Dudley. For some early pages we might be in Ken Russell's film of "Tommy," the rock-opera by The Who, except that the prematurely wise Harry is much healthier than Tommy. A born survivor, Harry holds on until the sorcerers rescue him and send him off to Hogwarts, to enter upon the glory of his schooldays.

Hogwarts enchants many of Harry's fans, perhaps because it is much livelier than the schools they attend, but it seems to me an academy more tiresome than grotesque. When the future witches and wizards of Great Britain are not studying how to cast a spell, they preoccupy themselves with bizarre intramural sports. it is rather a relief when Harry heroically suffers the ordeal of a confrontation with Voldemort, which the youth handles admirably.

One can reasonably doubt that "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is going to prove a classic of children's literature, but Rowling, whatever the aesthetic weaknesses of her work, is at least a millennial index to our popular culture. So huge an audience gives her importance akin to rock stars, movie idols, TV anchors, and successful politicians. Her prose style, heavy on cliche, makes no demands upon her readers. In an arbitrarily chosen single page--page 4--of the first Harry Potter book, I count seven cliches, all of the "stretch his legs" variety.

How to read "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"? Why, very quickly, to begin with, perhaps also to make an end. Why read it? Presumably, if you cannot be persuaded to read anything better, Rowling will have to do. is there any redeeming education use to Rowling? Is there any to Stephen King? Why read, if what you read will not enrich mind or spirit or personality? For all I know, the actual wizards and witches of Britain, or America, may provide an alternative culture for more people than is commonly realized.

Perhaps Rowling appeals to millions of reader non-readers because they sense her wistful sincerity, and want to join her world, imaginary or not. She feeds a vast hunger for unreality; can that be bad? At least her fans are momentarily emancipated from their screens, and so may not forget wholly the sensation of turning the pages of a book, any book.

Intelligent Children

And yet I feel a discomfort with the Harry Potter mania, and I hope that my discontent is not merely a highbrow snobbery, or a nostalgia for a more literate fantasy to beguile (shall we say) intelligent children of all ages. Can more than 35 million book buyers, and their offspring, be wrong? yes, they have been, and will continue to be for as long as they persevere with Potter.

A vast concourse of inadequate works, for adults and for children, crams the dustbins of the ages. At a time when public judgment is no better and no worse than what is proclaimed by the ideological cheerleaders who have so destroyed humanistic study, anything goes. The cultural critics will, soon enough, introduce Harry Potter into their college curriculum, and The New York Times will go on celebrating another confirmation of the dumbing-down it leads and exemplifies.
