I'm a sucker for The Emperor of Ice-Cream, though that's not really that long. Probably T S Eliot's The Wasteland

"Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" - Robert Browning
http://classiclit.about.com/library...rown-childe.htm

I got into because of Stephen King, but it far surpasses his tale, IMO.

I just recently joined a band called Finest Line Divides, if you children get bored you should totally look up the three demo songs we have on YouTube and totally Facebook us and stuff.

I'm living back in North Dakota, which is lame, and due to all the oil stuff going on here the cost of living is going up, so thinking it may be time for another move someday, haha.

I've been known to enjoy Howl without particularly understanding it all.





Man, I need to find me a poetry book or something. I barely do any reading now.

had to read El libro de Alexandre for school. a 2,675 stanza (10, 700 lines) spanish poem from the XIII century. read it in its original language (some weird mix of spanish, french, aragonés, portugues, etc. roman languages weren't defined so clearly back then).

craaazy shit. its about Alexandre the Great (i think that's the english name). 10, 700. ALL ALEXANDRINES. 14 syllables, two hemistiques, consonant rhymes all the way through. it was driving me crazy lol. but i enjoyed what i read. cool stuff.
i missed the deadline for the school work, i didn't get to finish it. my exgirlfriend had checked it out of a library for me, we broke up around that time so it was awkward and i had to give it back. i read most of it though. i wished i finished it :/


other than that. i too like Une saison en enfer by Arthur Rimbaud. Le bateau ivre is good too. also Vida de Santa María Egipcíaca. those are the ones that come to mind.

Allen, here's a PDF of it if you want to finish it. I believe it's in it's original form here as well (either that or it's been translated into Spanish and my Spanish has gone so far downhill that I no longer recognize uncommon words): El Libro De Alexadre

I think I just realized that tonight, thursday, is my last night officially living in pittsburgh with my family. Went to dinner at my favorite restaurant and undecorated and dragged the christmas tree out to the curb. About to go down to my last semester at college, then will be living in virginia for however long that lasts. It's about to be one hell of a ride. But for now, I have tickets for the Jeff Mangum show down in the city. Should be a nice way to say goodbye to a childhood spent growing up in this town.

Men should be OFFENDED when someone claims that women should prevent rape:

by NOT WEARING certain things
or NOT GOING certain places
or NOT ACTING in a certain way

That line of thinking presumes that you are incapable of control. That you are so base and uncivilized that it takes extraordinary effort for you to walk down the street without RAPING someone.

That you require a certain dress code be maintained, that certain behaviors be employed so that maybe today, JUST MAYBE, you won't RAPE SOMEONE.

It presumes that your natural state is a rapist.


here's my problem with this kind of stuff. (and don't think i'm insensitive or ignorant
before i say this; i'm with a girl who was a victim of sexual assault, and if i could cripple the guy who did it to her, i would..)

not every man is a rapist in disguise. men are naturally more sexually aggressive, BUT, that does not mean men are waiting to **** a girl with a short skirt. by the same token, not every woman who dresses how she wants to wants to be involved in any form of physical interaction.

that being said, i am very tired of people taking the stance as written above. yes, women can dress how they want. they can party at nightclubs in the city til the sun rises. they can tease whoever they want to.

but...there ARE rapists out there. and they prey on these kinds of women because they are easier targets.

you can give a cop the finger legally; it is well within your rights under the first amendment. but don't walk around flipping the police off and not think about what could happen.

just be knowledgeable, is my argument. women, when people say don't dress a certain way, it doesn't mean conceal yourself so that men can control themselves.

it means be aware of how you look to people and of how you look to people who could harm you. be knowledgeable of the fact that you are encouraged to do whatever your heart desires...but there are people who can misinterpret you or your outfit or your actions.

that doesn't mean stop what you're doing. it doesn't mean change how you behave. it means think.


sorry about the long post, but it was just something that was on my mind tonight. i don't like it when helpful advice is turned on its head and regarded as something less.
