"This is such a nice book to read just before bed. Such a fairy tale. Curious looking back at my notes for this, not knowing my goal for 2017 and now it's 2018.. gosh how things have changed. No less frustrated though, but at least I know my goal, more or less XD" Dec 31, 2017 09:19PM

"The moment I landed in this book, with the self-aware wit, glorious tumblewheel of philosophical questions... feels so home. It's why we watch stuff, to do armchair philosophy (like awesome WW last night at 9pm!! SO MUCH GOOD STUFF uGH nostalgia for the old days). Now I want to make a Socrates/Plato/Crito story, because trying to bust Socrates out of jail is definitely fic/show material, on top of yum moral thematics" Jul 02, 2017 05:17PM

A beautifully written character piece, exploring the change in Arha, high priestess of the Nameless Ones. I'm an absolute fan of her strength of will, her conviction, and her poise. The ending was slightly a let-down, just from a modern feminists' pe ...more

I got into this whole Russia thing some months ago when I was investigating my family's Croatian history. My interest grew from just the Croats to the Balkans and finally the entire Slavic realm.

Ultimately, I ended up in Russia. (Don't we all?)*

How to Grow Up by Michelle Tea
" I’m usually not a huge fan of memoir, but this book knocked my socks off. It was deep, profound, silly, punk, beautiful, profane — and I was enthralled. I just couldn’t put down. At the end, I felt very uplifted by Michelle‘s story. I read this b..." Read more of this review »

J.D. Salinger
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Neil Gaiman
“I can believe things that are true and things that aren't true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they're true or not.

I can believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Beatles and Marilyn Monroe and Elvis and Mister Ed. Listen - I believe that people are perfectable, that knowledge is infinite, that the world is run by secret banking cartels and is visited by aliens on a regular basis, nice ones that look like wrinkled lemurs and bad ones who mutilate cattle and want our water and our women.

I believe that the future sucks and I believe that the future rocks and I believe that one day White Buffalo Woman is going to come back and kick everyone's ass. I believe that all men are just overgrown boys with deep problems communicating and that the decline in good sex in America is coincident with the decline in drive-in movie theaters from state to state.

I believe that all politicians are unprincipled crooks and I still believe that they are better than the alternative. I believe that California is going to sink into the sea when the big one comes, while Florida is going to dissolve into madness and alligators and toxic waste.

I believe that antibacterial soap is destroying our resistance to dirt and disease so that one day we'll all be wiped out by the common cold like martians in War of the Worlds.

I believe that the greatest poets of the last century were Edith Sitwell and Don Marquis, that jade is dried dragon sperm, and that thousands of years ago in a former life I was a one-armed Siberian shaman.

I believe that mankind's destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it's aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle, that there's a cat in a box somewhere who's alive and dead at the same time (although if they don't ever open the box to feed it it'll eventually just be two different kinds of dead), and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.

I believe in a personal god who cares about me and worries and oversees everything I do. I believe in an impersonal god who set the universe in motion and went off to hang with her girlfriends and doesn't even know that I'm alive. I believe in an empty and godless universe of causal chaos, background noise, and sheer blind luck.

I believe that anyone who says sex is overrated just hasn't done it properly. I believe that anyone who claims to know what's going on will lie about the little things too.

I believe in absolute honesty and sensible social lies. I believe in a woman's right to choose, a baby's right to live, that while all human life is sacred there's nothing wrong with the death penalty if you can trust the legal system implicitly, and that no one but a moron would ever trust the legal system.

I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you're alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Robert E.      Lee
“It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.”
Robert E. Lee

J.K. Rowling
“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”
