FIrst of im looking for some books what have good funny witty/sarcastic humor...Sort of like discworld and hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy but not i the fantasy/sci fi genre

Non fiction crime books ?drugs/mafia/heists/petty crime/gangster shit/drug dealing...not really looking for the likes of serial killer and detective books like The Black Dahlia.

Most of what I have read have been non fiction...ALl I can remember of the non fiction what I have read really has been the hunter by richard stark and one by George V. Higgins which I really liked.

Im going go through their books in time...

So any recomendations ?

Is there any political literature you guys would recommend? I am talking about something less obvious than the communist manifesto and Imperialism: the highest form of capitalism. Something more along the lines of On Liberty or Nationalism , in terms of popularity and importence.
Political ideology doesn't matter, but I'd enjoy something more leftist.
I thought of buying We Will All Go Down Fighting To The End.

Quentin Skinner has some interesting books on history of political concepts. He has some cool stuff on Machiavelli and on Hobbes. I'm not sure what the names of the books are. His lectures are also really enjoyable, there's a load of them in youtube. Check him out, I think you'll enjoy him.

Zizek is also a fun read, and since you mentioned Ideology, that's this guy's specialty. I'd suggest just watching some of his conferences, he mostly repeat what he has written.

Other than that, and since you haven't mentioned it, I'd suggest you try and read Locke's 2nd treatise on civil government. You'll get a really good idea of what liberalism is on it's most basic form.

There's also some interesting politicians coming out of Italy (though a lot more hard to read than the ones I mentioned before) like Agamaben, Cacciari and Esposito. This is mostly post-nietzschean political philosophy, but it's still a really interesting point of view if you want to go the (un)foundation of politics.

This. For politics, it is better to learn new opinions that challenge your own, not things that just repeat and reinforce what you already believe. If you are confident enough in your beliefs, hearing dissenting opinions will only remind you why you believe what you believe. Otherwise, you might learn something new by being open minded.

Charles Darwin - Hosts of Living Forms
Haven't read it myself but almost all of my previous biology classes about evolution are based off it. Also read that book by that austrian priest(?) who studied genetics.

>ancient history
Caesar - The Gallic War
Mos def a great read. He writes in 3rd person. Get one with explanatory notes, etc.

Marcus Aurelius - Meditations
I haven't read this one yet but it is sitting around my place, waiting for me. Normally I can't stand philosophical bullshit, but you got to have a book by a roman emperor (especially if you're a roman buff like I am)

Sun Tzu - The Art of War
I have only read a little of this out of two different examples, one of which I own.

Definitely read Marcus Aurelius. If you can get the Greek-English edition published in 1941 by Oxford UP, by a fellow named Farquaharson (?sp?), its is the best ever about this man and the text. Not sure, but I think the 1st edition was in two volumes. Next best is the Loeb edition, which is available as a .pdf in a number of places.

There were two books from that era that you might like - one was an autobiography written by Charles Chaplin's son Michael, it was called something like "I Couldn't Smoke Grass on my Father's Lawn" or something similar. The other was a series of autobiographical vignettes written by Joan Baez, and I think that one was called "Daybreak." She knew Richard and Mimi Farina well.

So, I started writing a novel in preparation of NaNoWriMo, so I could kinda remember what I'd had in mind. What do you guys think?


“The Glitter of a Prince”

The dry air of the crack mines of Mondo VI whistled softly tonight. The view from the solid crack rock bars milled from the wall was breathtaking. The first floor built into the mountain was a mile high, and adorned with barred windows for its unwilling denizens to look out of. A figure looms in this particular port, at the northeast alley of Ninja Grid; its features sharp and unwavering, as if carved from onyx. Rippled black muscle painted upon a skinny, malnourished frame. Jumbo Shoeshine was his chosen name.

And upon this serious and grimacing brow, a set up eyes look upward at the glaring twin moons, and a mind swears it heard the wail of an electric guitar moaning into the night.

The Cock Hall of Castle Phallus was of solid twenty-four karat gold. The cocks themselves were eight feet in height, three feet in diameter, and lined the halls to the east and west. Depending on how much the younger members of the Royal Court had to smoke that day, sometimes they counted fifty on either side, or as low as thirty-eight. But counting the cocks was but a child’s game, and gone were those halcyon days.

Tonight there was a strange red glow dancing off the phallic statues, condensed into a small point that sat upon a metal box; clearly some mage’s trickery. A cable ran into a small loudspeaker that produced unnaturally large noise for its size. And as the circuit cycled back to its origin, the nimble sandstone-colored fingers of the Prince Fetis II danced across a glassy black fretboard.

I laughed at Jumbo Shoeshine. You have a good sense of humor, that's something you can't teach.

The description of this world is a little lacking. I understand that there's a dick castle and a crack rock mine, but there's not really any context for them. When you're starting of a novel, especially a fantasy/sci-fi affair like this, that has an exotic setting I think it's best to start really zoomed out, describing the world, and get more and more zoomed in, until we meet our main character.

You've done that to some extent, but I feel like you could flesh it out a lot more. Also try incorporating some other sensory descriptors, I'm sure the smell of burning crack rocks lay heavy in the air that night or something.

I have the same gripe with your main character. You're writing this in a kind of comic book, omniscient style so you can take the time to get into the visceral details of your character when you're introducing them.

Show don't tell, etc. Good luck with NaNoWriMo.

Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback. This is sort of a snapshot of what I want to do, kind of a Beggar Prince type story if it met Equilibrium. Mostly for my use, so I can know where to pick up when NaNoWriMo happens.

So your feedback is super important to me, and I appreciate anything else you have to say. I'll try and post again either mid or end of NaNoWriMo to see what people thing, before I edit.

I suggest doing the exact opposite of what >>68583 says. Why would you begin with a load of exposition? Start with a character doing what they do in the world. Let the reader figure out the shape of the world from who and what the character interacts with, does and experiences. Use exposition lightly or not at all.

I agree with this one. Start in the middle of the main character doing something cool and exciting, as you go through with the scene you can more naturally build the world around it. Some times you can't avoid some forced things like "Harry was an orphan boy..." but most of the time you can

If you take random suffixes and prefixes and stick them together you can make some great pseudo-nonsense. I say pseudo because the words can be said to have meanings granted by their component parts, but they're generally useless and not in any dictionary.

Tagore was referenced and quoted quite a bit in a book I recently read and I'm really enjoying his poetry - notably in Fruit Gathering and Stray Birds. I haven't read anything else of his yet, though I do have some arriving in the mail for when I finish what I'm currently reading. I wondered if anybody else of /lit/ had come across Tagore, would personally recommend any of his work or even similar writers. I'm not very drawn to poetry at all - I've never enjoyed it or gained anything from it until reading these.

Ever since I found Gitanjali in a book donation bin in high school he has been my favorite poet. Everything in Git is beautiful and if you want more I have seen "collected works" by him in Barnes and Noble(I can't speak for that though)
The best part about the Gitanjali is that he wrote the English translations himself(I just I knew Hindi so I could read the original)
Also, get the version with the introduction by Yeats (yeah that Yeats) and count yourself lucky you have one of the best books in the goddamned world(imho)

I liked how he explained how huge every piece of technology would be at the party only for everything to get so much smaller.

I kept thinking the overlords were to kind to be good. But they're just as in as of the overmind as humans were of them. Like, why couldn't Jan take a picture of it? They're doing just what he humans were doing to them, study it.

They could harm everyone at a bullfight the overmind probably has some power over them. They're like angels and god. Only the angels are demons and god and heaven are one eternity as a single being for who knows why. And the demons can't join it for some reason, and they seem immortal too.

I wonder why the overmind was on their planet, and why the conquered it.

Oh wow! Nice to be remembered and thank you. I was permabanned about 17 months ago and was finally able to get back on 420 again, like six weeks ago. Even lost my original tripcode, but found that also. I posted a number of things back then, but I'm glad you got use out of some of it. We kept on collecting Cool Things to Read and pit together an anthology which you might enjoy. Like always, gotta go the Pastebin route, so please follow this:


enjoy, and thank you!

Thank you.

Please don't tell me you were permabanned for posting links to download literature. =/

You're one of a very small group of individuals here who's actually better-read than myself. Banning someone of your interests is counterproductive to site quality.

If you're interested I would love to get your opinion on my work.

You should stop by /pss/ sometime, it would be nice to have some actual intellectual debate instead of just people breaking down into insults when they can't comprehend someone.

I was having fun on /420/ about 18 months ago and posted a picture of two 20 year old girls, topless, biting an apple. A mod here named Leska permabanned me for posting JB. I tried to appeal several times but no-one even bothered to talk with me. When my modem died, I remembered that it would give me a new IP, and I was back. I'll go over your work over the next few days, okay?
