M. M. said: " For a kid that spent most of their adolescence online reading and writing smutty sci-fi fan-fiction, this book echoed a lot of conventions I was already well-acclimated to. And while I can't flat out say it was predictable, so-so erotica, sometimes t ...more "

Haruki Murakami
“So I'm not crazy after all! I thought it looked good myself once I cut it all off. Not one guy likes it, though. They all tell me I look like a first grader or a concentration camp survivor. What's this thing that guys have for girls with long hair? Fascists, the whole bunch of them! Why do guys all think girls with long hair are the classiest, the sweetest, the most feminine? I mean, I myself know at least two hundred and fifty unclassy girls with long hair. Really.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Donna J. Haraway
“Cyborg writing must not be about the Fall, the imagination of a once-upon-a-time wholeness before language, before writing, before Man. Cyborg writing is about the power to survive, not on the basis of original innocence, but on the basis of seizing the tools to mark the world that marked them as other.”
Donna Haraway

Joel White Hey Maggie,
You need to read The Wind Up Bird Chronicle. Maybe you'll be able to explain it to me.

Also, you're 5 star review of Snow Crash means we need to hang out more.
