The Japanese seem like the biggest coomer race from the limited insight Dazai and Murakami have given me
Dancing is (or can be, when it is done well) a higher form of physical intimacy than mere sex, as it relies on non-verbal communication and coordination and awareness of your selves and others (to avoid crashing into them). At a certain level dancing is a participatory art, whereas sex never requires the same level of consciousness.

Sex, even good sex with a loving partner, is nice but it alone brings no lasting lifelong fulfillment. Your full relationship with your spouse - of which sex is only a small part - on the other hand does, as does raising good children. Neither is over in an hour but require a lifetime.
My dude you just have to look at the amount of hentai they produce. They're total coomers

What more remains to be said on the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Seriously each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

>a-at least the books were good though


The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.
Is this a pasta?
Setting aside their quality for a moment, the Potter books are supremely comfy.

the west cannot ever overcome identity /pol/ or libel propaganda because their religion is identity /pol/ and libel propaganda; when they begin to look for a way to overcome the identity pol and propaganda in the present they will find it in early christianity and they cannot understand and refute one without understanding and refuting the other.

the toxic roots
my reading goal for this year was to finish In search of lost time as well as My Struggle (knausgard's), I'm happy that it looks like I will for sure finish it

I'm thinking what should be my reading goal be for next year. Making it just about number of books would be boring. I'm thinking Tolstoy's novels and Human Comedy, but there's no way to get the whole thing in my country easily they only released it once in 60s
The enlightenment is the cause of ID politics and identify is only elevated to a political program because real politics is systematically denied by enlightenment-informed pseudo-politics. Every truly political state is fundamentally religious. The abandonment of religion leaves a void to be replaced by whatever other lines of distinction can be drawn, like race.

Why did you guys recommend me a book with no plot?

I am mid way through and have not even picked it up for a week straight as there is just nothing interesting to get me into the story. I cant even remember where they are going or why, its not giving me anything either to lead towards.

Intellectual intuition.

/lit/bros, do you ever feel alone irl because you cant talk about the stuff you read with anyone?
I am from a third world country, average IQ levels here are legit bordering on retardation, and left wingness is strong (LATAM)
Any serious subject is viewed as pretentiousness, and often they are indeed mentioned with pretense in mind, which creates a culture where serious book talk is something to be mocked as uptight and arrogant (as DFW said was common already in 2000s America in his interviews) and at the same the book is a fetish object to signify wisdom, but to the point that the population reads so little that any book whatsoever, even the stupidest self help slop, grants someone the image of intelectual for the majority of people around them, and people mistake fancy words for deep thought
In educated circles, what dominates is Marxist thought and derivatives. Every single bookish person you find is left leaning, and even if they are knowleadgeable in other fields, they are commie parrots when it comes to politics, and they are always super invested in that, revolution, opression etc
Its frustrating

Thats part of the problem man, thinking this opposition of right and left is real
Werent the Golden Age Muslims creative? The Renaissance Europeans?
They would fall under todays "conservative" more than left leaning, but even then applying this label to them is dumb
just say you're a brazilian self-hating xenophile already.
The righ wing people are dumb too, often dumber
But its not me that obsess over politics, its just the cool thing to do, and they just happen to be left leaning
I agree with you, I only disagree with you in what I dont think we disagree in anything

Yeah, I think literature has always been a lonely pursuit but it is now more so than ever. We should try to seek out others we can identify with, but to some degree, we’ll just have to accept that this is how it is. And I think given the madness of modernity, the principled loners should perhaps even be admired.
