lol words removed (I broke down a timeline of events to justify my behavior and referred to the esteem so many of you hold Gaiman in as a hagographic cult) I hate to leave you guys thinking I'm a jackass, but since I'm clearly not going to enjoy myself here, I guess I have to.

The difference is that emo guys sometimes look hot.

So I have to quantify my dislike or.. you'll go medieval on my ass? That's more than a little absurd. I'm actually not going to qualify my opinion, just because of how you've decided to approach me. Let's talk about Ayn Rand. Her cult won't be offended. That makes sense. Its like trying to sound coo...

Belial wrote:I wish. "Lucifer" by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. It's a spinoff of "Sandman", so probably not your cup of tea.


That makes sense. Its like trying to sound cool but not having it.

That's how I feel about Gaiman's stuff. He's got the intent, but it doesn't work.

Les Chants de Maldoror by Isidore Lucien Ducasse, le Comte de Lautréamont. It had a great influence on the surrealists and dadaists and to a lesser extent most 20th century literature, even though its relatively unheard of because its influence was somewhat indirect. You see, Philippe Soupault dis...

Neither was correct, actually. Punctuation always goes inside quotations with a single exception - sometimes the quotation mark goes outside to avoid ambiguity. That is, if you're asking a question which ends with a non-inquisitive quotation, the question mark goes outside. Compare Did you say, &quo...

Yeah, it occurs to me that if I had read Rand when I was a teenager, I would've thought that it was "Oh me yarm, SO WISE!" Yeah, I shouldn't... However, I also agree that Ayn Rand sucks and that her followers are very culty. And what is your sig from? It sounds very modern, which leads me...

I was expecting it to be very Burtonesque from the previews. I was disappointed. It was okay, I guess.

We're talking about so light that when I was younger a bunch of kids formed a circle around me and pointed and laughed about how I didn't have any eyebrows.
