So I'm just really starting to get into poetry, does anyone have recommendations for stuff like Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, and Charles Baudelaire? Or any other queer or occult and spooky poetry?

Do you guys ever read books while on some sort of high or intox? Reading is so much more intense for me when I'm riding the tail end of a DXM trip. I read strictly non-fiction books and the DXM helps me so much in placing myself in the settings of the books. Read through Aquariums of Pyongyang on DXM a while ago and it just totally blew me away. Being able to vividly see and experience the suffering and macabre experience in NK was incredible. Really hoping I can find some time this semester to sit down with a bottle of Delsym and read through some medical journals and a Mao biography I just downloaded.

Tried meditating on the tao te ching on a mid 2nd plat dxm trip.

Ended up staring at my pc screen for 3 hours listening to music and talking to people online.

Pretty hard to maintain focus for me

Reading after smoking weed can be fun every once in a while. But at least for me , I either feel like I don't remember en off of what I just read , or my mind will go off on a tangent. Reading on hooch can also be fun. But after to many drinks it becomes a chore. Reading on stims is the sure way to go. I've never tried to read on DXM.

When I'm drinking, I feel like I have no imagination at all. Reading becomes joyless and frustrating. Very bland. Totally forgettable.

When I'm high (marijuana), I feel like I can't concentrate on a book. Everything is too intense, the last thing I want to do is sit still and read. I feel like half of my mind is reading the story, and the other half is hyper-analyzing everything in the story. I am very critical of the work.

When I'm flat sober, I can escape into the fantasy of listening to another person tell me a tale, but when I'm high, I feel unable to immerse myself in anything but the present reality.

Hey /lit/

What are some poems in which Walt Whitman constructs an image through observations? Similar to "I Hear America Singing," a poem solely comprised of observations: "The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam..." (Line 3 Whitman)

I'm looking to create an argument, or rather, bring to light the importance of observations for Whitman's poetry and the images they contain.

Yeah it has to do with that inevitable abstraction that is representing a body of people: the Hobbesian head of state will always be analogous to God, in a way only the Old Testament god knows how to show: this cruelty is an inevitable manifestation of widespread arbitrary determinations of words and character in the paradigm. This abstract, objective morality can be nothing but absurd to the person who uses it within their lives, and thus their physical realities are all the more painful for it, and full of death.

Christianity is the most aphoristic of all Abrahamic religions, and Islam by far the most theoretical, and boring.

Too bad that lots of stuff is about the Mahayana branch that is just as 'meh' like any other religion. Any wisdom you find in buddhism is in the teachings of the historical Siddharta only, in theravada or even better, read the pali canon for yourself especially Dhammapada.

Mahayana is a religion, Theravada is a philosophy. Not like anyone asked my opinion though!

Hey 420 /lit/, first I wanted to thank everyone who downloaded the .pdf's of scholarly books from our cloud service I don't know how many of you here actually took advantage of it but our service showed that they were downloaded over 300 times. The most popular sets were the Loeb Classical Library Greek and Latin authors.

We let the time-limit for them expire where we had them. (I can't name the service because there's a word filter here at 420 that'll knock me off for a week)

So I started a new collection, this one is just two pieces. One is an archaeological metanalysis of sites in the Near East and Central Asia, on into China, where artifacts have been found containing residues of cannabis, opium and lotus (Nymphaea caerulis and similar have chems in them that are a lot like pot mixed with some valium), and artistic representations of the same. (It has pictures and charts too) The other thing is completely different, it's a book by the 10th century CE Islamic scholar Ibn Hazm, called "The Ring of the Dove." He was a very perspicacious fellow, this Ibn Hazm, and his book is a long chain of meditations and poetry by him about love. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea, I grant you, but hey, I'm Charlie.

Anyway to get there from here, follow the Pastebin:

I listen to mostly audiobooks (since I don't get a lot of time to sit down and read). I was wondering if there were any books that were particularly great productions as far as listening goes? Pic related, every time the tape worm speaks and goes through Bruce's system you hear a really loud grumbling and all the phone calls sound like on the phone and stuff. I'm not quite finished yet but I really enjoyed it. World War Z was a particularly great listen too.

Not listened to the audio version but I have read Filth and it was very very good in my honest opinion. The movie that was recently made based on it was pretty poor though, it had it's moments but it fell short of the novel by far.

Just a suggestion based on my own taste for you and audiobooks, try 'hard boiled egg and the end of the world' by Haruki Murakami, very interesting book, I love all of his writings though...

"Let's play a game," she said, in the dark. I knew, I slipped my hand in hers.

We felt one another's pulse for what must have been an hour. I stared at her lips. A little chapped, but healthy, full.

When I was bored, finally, she gripped my wrist hard, not letting go. She looked at me as if to say, "Hey, let's fucking GO now," and in a rush we were out of the tent and into the dark of the woods.

I was barefoot and in just my cum-stained boxers from just a little bit before, following my whore's insistence further into the depth of the wild. The branches stung my feet and I wanted to complain. Still that death grip on the wrist, flashing eyes back at me from time to time to remind me of the urgency.

I kept staring at that little night-thing she was wearing, turning up at the edges in the wind and showing me sections of her pale, firm thighs I had seen almost a dozen times naked before but was still entranced by. The curves of her shoulders... imagining those pert little breasts, wanting to throw her down on that moss-covered log and fuck her there in the woods, and go off inside her and create a hundred million babies from now into eternity. But that grip...

The sound of the river had been increasing over the rustling of the brush and now I could smell the water in the cool night air. Those round river rocks replaced the undergrowth of forest. She looked back at me and smiled blissfully, and I felt her hand relax a little. She pulled on my middle finger, almost gently, but still commanding.

She turned to face me. "Take those off," she said, pointing to my boxers. It didn't take long. They were off and I was hard as God's vengeance in the pale moonlight.

She cut back a laugh, seeming pleased at her own power. Then, turning toward the river, and looking back coyly over her shoulder, she started walking toward the water, pulling at my finger.

I just tried recommending William Blake but the book cover I was going to post is already here in /lit/ somewhere. The book is "William Blake - The Seer and his Visions," edited by Milton Klonsky.

LaVey's bible dates from the late 60s, not exactly ancient practices.
From what I've read of it, it is just a poor copy of Stirner's The Ego and Its Own, which is a far better read. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/416318.The_Ego_and_Its_Own
The Church of Satan just seems like a very clever ploy by some dudes to get laid...well done, I couldn't go through that kind of effort, even if I would get all these kinky hot girls to do "rituals" every week.

Out of General interest I read Malleus Maleficarum and King James' own Daemonologie, both are really interesting as historic texts, they were used as manuals back in the day. The latter is a coles notes version of the former and other texts of the day, I'd start there.
