Subject:Three Days, Three Books...
Time:06:23 pm
Current Mood:workingWarm
Just finished three thought-provoking books in a small span of time, and I'm feeling gushy.

They dealt in gender roles/policing, marriage, magic, Gods, warriors, architectural abstracts, art, slavery, revenge, self-discovery, philosophy,astronomy, wars, race, murder and mystery. The first two were from a Scifi-fantasy trilogy of books, and the last one was a random graphic novel of nonlinear proprtions.

Series:
The Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin
1. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
2. The Broken Kingdoms

Rich, rich, writing, with engaging characters, overarching themes and amazing details. The protagonist is a woman of color, and it deals with major racial issues/viewpoints of the marginalized. Far too much, I've skimmed over major scifi-fantasy, because it was always the same euro-centric, Aryan mash of amazing White People With Powers on Horses, so to actually have a book be as diverse and well-thought out as this one, with such a great, fresh perspective, filled a literary hole I didn't even know I'd had in terms of my reading desires. The second book is less 'majestic' and UMPH-filled, but is just as forceful in its quiet, seemingly mundane way. The lore and stories alone in the universe she created are amazing, and I can't wait for the third and final book(Late 2011! D: )

Graphic Novel:
3. Asterios Polyp By David Mazzucchelli

On the surface, a douche-y tale about a douche. Underneath, the douche has motivation, he learns the Big Lesson(maybe), and gets called out on his shit in huge and minuscule ways. Abstract drawings, non-linear storytelling, and irregular panels lend a stream-of-consciousness effect to the whole thing, which makes sense, as the self-proclaimed narrator doesn't even really exist. Or does he? At the heart of the novel, it's about the douche realizing there's more to life than him and pure dichotomies. The surprisingly astute buxom Wiccan-landlady was a nice touch, too. ;D

"the seemingly uneventful and motionless moment when our future steps into us is so much closer to life than that other loud and accidental point of time when it happens to us as if from outside. The quieter we are, the more patient and open we are, the more deeply and serenely the new presence can enter us, and the more we can make it our own, the more it becomes our fate."

~Ranier Maria Rilke


Recently moved to Highland Park, severed most all ties(abusive/emotional/physical/FINANCIAL) with my mother, and chomping at the bit to finish my last 8 college courses, so I can graduate with my damn Bachelor's, finally.

Being chronically poor makes everything take so much loooooooonger, UGH.

I keep the subject of my inquiry constantly before me, and wait till the first dawning opens gradually, by little and little, into a full and clear light.

If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.

Do you think good-natured teasing often goes too far? Have you ever gotten seriously offended by a joke that crossed the line? Have you been informed that your own teasing hurt someone else's feelings?


LOL, as a double minority, yeah. It has happened. A lot. Especially about the fact I own a vagina. :/

IDK if I;ve offended someone. If I did, they didn't tell me. I make it a point to be aware of my words, though, so I'm fairly certain this hasn't happened to me lately.

A leeeeeeeeeeeeetle Shit-faced...Just a bit. I've got to go grocery shopping and do laundry tomorrow and I hope I won't be too hung over. Poor Birthday boy threw up at the gay bar, and I stepped in it. Very unfortunate.

But our personal bartender was a hottie, but most likely gay as a rainbow. Dancing was fun as hell and I gave $3all together to go-go dancers. Very worth it. I cut my finger in the bathroom and the attendant acted like she'd never heard of a band-aid before. No, I can't wrap my finger up with complementary gum or mini hersheys. I need first aid, lady.

THANK GOD for automatic spell-check on Firefox, or I'd be fucked. As would this post. :D

*Passes out*


P.S. So into Korean Pop music right now, so many hot men I never knew about. Taecyeon, Chansung, Bi Rain, T.O.P., Daniel Henney, Cheon Dung, Mir, you could all get it. But class-ily, of course.

Sisqo's "Thong Song".

I had a spurt of 90s nostalgia that fizzled out after the violins and burst before the first chorus. iTunes, damn your easy access and inability to return merchandise!
