"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.

So this might sound stupid, but im just kind of getting into reading poetry, but i just dont understand some of it, like van gogh and da vinci for paintings and harry potter for reading, what are some poets that are good for beginners, something that introduces them to the concept of poetry...

i hope i have made sense.

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. It's out of print but you can get it at Amazon pretty cheap. So I'm also going to recommend William Butler Yeats, hopefully with two covers of his books.

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.

The concept of 'novelty' has been a big idea that I've realized is what I'm searching for when I smoke pot or I'm drunk or my boredom leads to anxiety. Novelty is the idea that a work of art is so original and unlike anything else that you can't even compare it to other works of art--it is novel. Like a circus act for a small child, the trapeze artists and the clowns are completely unlike anything else a small child has ever seen, and is thus stimulated by a sense of originality, creativity, wonder, and imagination. I seek out art that has this quality, and pro wrestling and video games and even desktop backgrounds and music are motivated by this desire to provoke a sense of childlike wonder.

But to me, there's really nothing else better in the world to give me this sense of novelty than a...novel. So / lit /, what are your favorite novels and books that are hard to categorize or compare to anything else?

Off the top of my head, Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, and even David Copperfield by Charles Dickens are all books that make me feel like a child because I feel so naive when I experience their humor, their creativity, and their "novelty."

It's set in a unknown country at war, in an unknown date. These soldiers parachute into the countryside and massacre an orphanage, but one little girl survives. The story is about her and this young soldier that decided to stay on the orphanage/farm and go AWOL, and a lot of really bizarre conversations/occurrences between them as they butt heads and sorta get along.

Surreal and ..isolated, we're not really sure where on Earth this place is, or if the setting is entirely fantasy. The prose is very poetic and whimsical and interesting to read.

I actually got the chance to smell George R. R. Martin's JOCKSTRAP the other day. We live in the same city and we go to the same gym where he uses the sauna. I found his clothes piled outside of it one night and knew we were the only people in the building. So I rummaged through and found the jockstrap he wears and buried my face in it to inhale all.

Get "Three Hainish Novels". A universe just as good if not better than dunes, with an interesting anthropological perspective, drug use, a timeline spanning millennia over the story, just so satisfying to read. She is the best science fiction writer ever, in my opinion. Having read dune, I feel much more satisfied and as if I gained something more than just entertainment by reading her books.

Usually if I write about a book it's a straight-up review. I'm gonna make an exception this time. I'm always looking to expand my knowledge of the world and have spent decades happily going through books of philosophy, religion, archaeology, anthropology......well, name something and I likely have read it.

THIS book I bought because it features a number of essays about how the writer, Frank Joseph, believes that virtually every major Eastern hemispheric culture visited the Americas in the long years before Columbus. Now, there are two things about this idea; one is that many of the cultures which he names (but especially the Phoenicians) had the ability to get here. But did they? According to his "evidence" they certainly did. The second thing about this idea is that not too many mainstream archaeologists and anthropologists accept the general idea that the Americas had numerous pre-Columbian visitors, with the exception of those Vikings who made landfall in Newfoundland some time in the 10th century CE. There is, simply put, a stunning lack of "smoking gun" type of evidence otherwise. Frank Joseph belabors these said mainstream archaeologist et al as "refusing to look at the evidence." Say ti once, say it twice, but it's a constant refrain. So I began checking his footnotes. Most of his evidence is fringe or downright unscientific, most of his "open-minded" scientists are fringe people like he is. So I began checking some more. It turns out that he worked for a Mormon-run magazine called "Ancient American." Among other things, there are more than enough LDS's who are still trying to scientifically prove the veracity of those parts of the Book of Mormon which declare that Native Americans are descended from Hebrew refugees who came here some time around the 12th - 10th century BCE. If that wasn't enough to get my balls in an uproar, I did a Google dearch on his name and I found him immediately:

The best is yet to come. Amazon has a feature where you can talk live with an Amazon employee.......even if they're in Calcutta or Singapore. So I got one of these jokers on the phone. Mind you, you can't post links in an review; I had in my initial attempt and revised my comments twice, leaving out words like "convicted pederasts" and "fraud" and the SOBs STILL wouldn't publish it. The guy I got on the phone had Bengali accent and when I laid it out with him he was all "Oh well you should read our FAQ." "I did." "Oh well you cannot post libelous or slanderous statements." "They're not! They're TRUE!" "Well what did you wish to post?" "That the book is an unscientific fraud and shills for a Mormon organization that promotes very unhistorical ideas." Long pause. Then: "I am sorry sir that sounds libelous to me I cannot help you." CLICK.

Ideally any books recommended would come with a bibliography so I can do some further reading, as well. I'm not really looking for textbooks but original publications so I can form my own critique.
