In short, I am an enigma, a paradox. An enigmatic, paradoxical, pretentious idiot. If I had to guess why, I'd say I'm this way for the same reason others make a habit of insulting strangers online -- my parents didn't love me growing up.(less)

How to Lose a Country by Ece Temelkuran
"Ece Temelkuran, who, to my shame, I had barely heard of, wrote How to Lose a Country in 2019 to warn complacent Westerners that it absolutely can happen to them too. She'd watched in horror as Erdoğan's AKP methodically turned her country into a dict" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Arthur Graham  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Florida was like a pathetic, flaccid cock unable to
work it up. Meanwhile, Cuba sat waiting like a big, wet
pussy, not even a hundred miles out.”
Arthur Graham

“And the years flow past, each of them as unremarkable as the next, as unnoticed as nanoseconds, in fact, not even long enough to contain anything noticeable – centuries just barely registered as moments in space/time. Soon the millennia are passing by at a modest rate of 47 per minute, and of course all manner of things noticeable and not-so-noticeable occur along the way (though most falling into the latter category). Naturally there come periods where lying is greatly rewarded, followed by periods where lying is greatly punished (our poor unlucky editor!), along with every other conceivable and inconceivable reversal and re-reversal of standards, and…

Wait, did anyone else just hear God yawn?”
Arthur Graham

“I wasn't sure which I appreciated less—the insincere concern or the genuine indifference.”
Arthur Graham, Editorial

Shadow Girl Arthur wrote: "How are you enjoying the Fall issue?"

Best issue ever 💕 I have theories...
I'm always so bummed because I fly through the issues so fast, then it's all over :( So this time I'm trying to limit the amount of pages I read nightly, so I dont finish it so fast. I am jumping around, too - and it helps. (That started because I had to find Andy's contribution after seeing his comment).
I think I'm enjoying this issue more because I've following the blogs much more than ever before, and I've started to appreciate HST in a different way. That might not make sense, but I havent thought of a better way to phrase it in 237 cursor blinks so it's time to move on, haha!!

Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Where's the fun in laying low? LOL, I can understand needing to store some energy for that! Wish I could come by and say "hi" but that's a bit of a trek for me!

Hope all is wonderful and that you get into a lil bit of trouble now and then to keep things interesting ;)

karen ha!! i see what you did there!!!

and it was only 73 degrees out at the time of its capture. since then, it has been in the 90s. there is no photographic evidence of it, though, because i was indistinguishable from a shimmery oil slick.

'cuz i still got style

David Katzman Are you, like, a model or sumthin? Will you sign my underpants?


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Elves are wonderful :) and you make a lovely elf. And of course I do.... you can't post mostly naked pictures of yourself and expect a jacket to alter that visual! Although, you look nice in the coat, as well :)..... I'm very flattering today ( I don't know what's wrong with me - I think I need coffee)


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* It was difficult but I just pictured the guy in the picture almost naked and from there it was smooth sailings.


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Your profile kind of looks like an emo elf, Arthur, quite lovely but uncharacteristic looking - from what I've surmised of you. I love the black and white though :)


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* LOL, I'm a stalker so I noticed this but normally responding on my wall is the way to reply (FYI) but no, I really don't think it's much of a coincidence LOL.
