Haven't seen one in a while, let's get some OC poetry! Just wrote this right now,

Three kings and a jack, traveling down the road.
The road is it, it calls them all, with only time as their foe.
The curtain like clouds, blind them all.
Nothing's certain, nothing's forever

On they must go, on the they must go.

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes; a curiosity

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see

Don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

>New paragraph

Orbital kinetic bombardment is contributing to the growth of cocks across North End. Starship surveys revealed that the radiation had exceeded the recommended oscillatory limits, just before the penile contraction occurred. Spunky, the local fella responsible for 9/11, furiously wanking off to midgets shitting dildos (these ejaculated millions of liters), stupidly decided to ban the consumption of deez-el fuel worldwide.

Meanwhile, back up in yo ass with the resurrection foretold by Gandalf O'Reilly, "Radiation quickens unto itself." Now... masturbating stealthily without remorse, our slaves built OSHA. Soon refugees stumbled upon a mystic tome that foretold the the VAGINA EMPIRE was doomed to failure.

Nevertheless, the starship Buttenterprise completed stalliones Protocol 13-0157, ensuring penile supremacy. Elsewhere, milkshakes brought rage to Kirtaner. Spardot sniffed dank for cannabis farms, attempting suicide. Fortunately, since buttholes excrete salamanders, their exhumation efforts bore fetid sashimi balls unto Martians. Finally, war was beginning to end the conflict between lemmings and sgnimmel; raged minutes of time-dilated chrono-units.

Incredibly, a fart erupted, causing hemorrhoids which combust flammable vapors to thousands of degrees. Meanwhile, behind the liquor, biscuits battled two underage mudkips.

420chan.org enabled backdoor protocols guaranteed anal. Wrestling gimps imbibe triple-distilled corn, creating extreme problems for nincompoops. Fortunately soldiers committed regicide. Unfortunately, regicide is gay. Surprisingly, everyone dances in Denmark if morticians prepare timpano.

Interestingly, masturbating will never cure loneliness unless Kanye learns hibachi and humility. Flash AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH this scary theme will haunt her forever.

"Bitch-destroyer" said Netjester.

Karen, where the fuck did you hide my acid? I'm gonna explore the holy butthole. Termites are invading our glorious butthole remorselessly. Never have I witnessed such faggortry. "Not in my tenure..." the headmaster squirrel compiled the communist agenda.

The archaic dwarven enthusiasmos didn't realize the temporal sycophant principle. Nevertheless, the desire to restore Soviet practices doomed proletarians. No words withheld from the atmosphere, meanwhile the drip dropped big drizzles daily. To counteract drizzling, bored browsers breached into the monolith we created. The guilt from the orgasms shattered us. Calamities of conscience won't vet.

The look prevent the inevitable flurry of the Booty with the fucking juice. Regardless, the enormous Turd produced Enough waft so a bear ejaculated incredibly. "Sorry, For mess thinking About bears." the moment said. Hey who wants the BIG diapers? wait the Tenochtitlan kid is rebelling Cut-up Oreos. The grandiose one desires plentiful memes which will exonerate the millions of rutabagas abroad. Life for all became the honest answer that Consumed the corpse inhabitor's effervescent semen.

I'm making a redpill reading list, as a joke. It's basically laughably ridiculous pieces that would dupe the pseudo-intellectuals infesting the chans. A mix of fedora, right wing rants, totalitarianism, religious and new age charlatans, and so on. I'm asking for contributions and suggestions.

Here it is so far:
Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, PhD - 12 Rules for Life
Stefan Molyneux, M.A. - Universally Preferable Behavior
InfoWars
Breitbart
Milo Yiannopoulos - Dangerous
Charles Murray - The Bell Curve
Mike Cernovich - Maga Mindset
Jonah Goldberg - Liberal Fascism
Ann Coulter - In Trump We Trust
Scott Lamb - The Faith of Donald Trump
President Donald J. Trump, B.S. - The Art of the Deal
Patrick J. Buchanan - The Death of the West
William Luther Pierce - The Turner Diaries
Jean Respail - The Camp of the Saints
Roosh V - Bang
Michelle Malkin - In Defense of Internment
Bill O'Reilly - Those Who Trespass
Ludwig von Mises - Socialism
Murray Rothbard - the Case Against the Fed
Aleister Crowley - The Book of Lies

>haha I'm just being ironic guys. it's a joke

yeah, that doesn't really matter though. you immerse yourself with any rhetoric for long enough and you'll eventually start believing the bullshit.
it always starts with hating the jews/fags/femoids 'ironically'. but the more time you spend consuming articles, books, youtube videos without actively engaging in criticism of the content, the higher the likelihood that you'll be 'sucked in'.
memes become part of your sense of humor and even your identity.
when you're halfway through a book that's about how women used to be obedient and how their sexual freedom has led to collapse of society, your brain isn't thinking "why am I still reading this trash?".
because we hate feeling like we're wasting time, you're more likely to be thinking "this guy must have a point, otherwise why am spending my time reading this?"

imagine doing an experiment. you take a left-leaning college-aged dude who only recently started thinking about politics (like you could find on this very board). you feed him nothing but Jordan Peterson, Molyneux and Sam Harris videos for a week. at first he'll think these guys are crazy, but eventually one of them will make a point that seems to make sense to our experiment subject. the more redpill videos he watches, the more youtube will start recommending redpill videos by other guys. his mind starts to become overwhelmed with conflicting feelings about viewpoints the subject used to ignore or dismiss. the subject feels 'lied to' by society and will start seeking out more radical viewpoints in search for 'the truth'. it doesn't take long before the subject is reading books about zionist reptilians responsible for 9/11 triggering the upcoming Apocalypse.

I know this because this is basically what happened to me for a time. it started with just browsing the future for memes. I started posting anti-semetic memes 'ironically' because it was controversial and I felt a rush spouting racist bullshit. months and months of trolling the future later, and I was no longer doing it ironically. eventually I became a jew-hating, jolly african-american-hating, fag-hating, women-hating neckbeard 9/11 truther reading books about the illuminati and reptilian presidents.
for a while I was completely unreachable by reason or logic. it wasn't until I accidentally stumbled upon effective, fact-based, science-supported criticisms and teardowns of the books and movies I consumed that I started to regain my senses.

I don't believe in censorship, because if you need to refute false, dangerous claims and ideas you need access to the original work in order to give context and remain objective.
but I don't encourage consuming redpill/alt-right content blindly and uncritically, especially not as a "joke" because it's not funny. the ideas expressed are not funny, because they're still believed and kept alive by way too many people.
it's never been easier to get trapped in an echo-chamber, because on the internet any idea, no matter how wild can become viral.

TL;DR: fuck off

Read some classic gays to set the world. Frederick the Great - Anti-Machiavel, Martin Luther - On the Jews and Their Lies, Gottfried Feder - Manifesto for the Abolition of Enslavement to Interest, and Albert Speer - Inside the Third Reich. Also, Immanuel Kant - On the Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime and Other Writings.
At some point, compare and conclude with Fredrich Nietzsche - Will to Power. That is a thorough-minded redpill set.

What are you guys reading right now?

Brandon Sanderson just released the third and final book of his Reckoners trilogy, and it was fantastic. Where are all the Sanderson fans in here? It was this board that told me to read his shit, and now that I do, nobody ever will talk about them with me lol

Now starting Altered Carbon. Netflix is making a show based on it, and I like reading books that have adaptions impending so I can compare them later.

Hey /lit/ finding myself with a lot more time on my hands these days. I kind of feel like writing again but I want to give poetry a shot this time. Used to write a lot of short stories but I haven't in many years what little I did with poetry was way back in highschool and I remember nothing.

Anyone have some good book suggestions that cover the structure/form of different kinds of poetry, something I desperately need a refresher in. And just recommendations on some poetry collections in general that would be worth reading. Thanks guys.

See if you can get your hands on this one.

The best thing you can do is talk to a poet, a real poet. Let this person show you the ropes. In the beginning, yes, we can make a science out of it, there are the technical aspects, there are the tricks, and your mastery of the language is a very important thing. But poetry is also a work of the heart. In the end you just gotta light up dat blunt and let the lines flow, knomuhsayin?

For the first day I saw you
Your heart was red
And when I went to Church
You saw me dead

For when the teacher said
You always find your heart

Your kindness just tore me apart
Now I am far away
And with another friend
But whenever I think of you
It makes me wonder

I guess I'm just roasted in red

In the Koran, Christians and Jewish people are called "the people of the book", and you are forbidden to mess with them or try to convert them because they are already worshipping God... it's kind of a defining feature of those 3 religions that they are dogmatic and set their stuff in stone, where as proper religions are flexible and when you destroy them they reimmerge again because they are inextricably linked to the culture where they originate from, can't exist outside that culture, and will never die as long as that culture exists. The bible, the torah, and the Koran need to be written down because they are spread to all different cultures and have no connection to reality

Dissolve your ego into the illusion and identify with no other thing but this task for that is the true purpose which you desire so you might as well strive for that state where no external thing can knock you off your course to enlightenment via constant reminders that the only thing thats real is you and thats all you need throughout all time and space.

By not going to the wrong places expecting the results you want.
E.g. post depression threads over at Personal Issues, not the literature board.
Also >>70862
Diet & exercise is the "have you tried turning it on and off again" of depression stuff cause if you´re not treating your body right it´s not weird that you´re depressed. Also even if you´re still depressed it´ll still be easier to fix things if you´ve started on that end already.

How is your writing going /lit/? Anyone here working on something or have any work they want to share? Not poetry, we have the OC Poems thread for that.

I am 2 acts done with a 3 act novel. I have written short stories before, and this is my first long endeavor. I had always lacked confidence, but one day, I suddenly stumbled upon the perfect horror novel just sitting in my mind. Like, it is literally the greatest horror story if this generation. It will go down as The Wire of horror stories for it's brutal look at reality at the bottom of the barrel. But it will also be like Trailer Park Boys and have a cast of lovable losers, who are down and out, living where every day feels like the end of the world, and having that corner of the ghetto become the backdrop for what will be the end of the world for real, with the local stoners and crackheads the last line of defense before an ancient evil reclaims the planet it once ruled a millennia ago. It is not a horror comedy like John Dies At The End, it is straight horror with some comedic moments the way an action movie can have good comedy. I know it will be an insta-classic and probably get a film adaption. As a long time 420channer, I will find some way to get it to you all for free after I find a publisher, since I know this site thrives on piracy, even if I have to pay them for digital downloads for all 3-5 regulars here. Drugs and the apocalypse, it should be right up most of /lit/s alley.

I've had this idea for a story in my head for about... 15 years now.
It's only now that the potential story has kind of crystalized enough for me to want to start writing it out, but I can't decide between writing in English or in my native language (dutch).

I've always read books, fiction and non-fiction, in English. All movies and video games I've consumed past the age of 12 I've done so in English. I feel more confident that I can express myself poetically and creatively in English.
I also feel my audience would be wider if I wrote my story in English, as the majority of my friends would not be interested in reading my amateurish writing.

On the other hand, I'm proud of my native language. I've always had issues with expressing myself and my ideas in my native language, but I somewhat believe this writing exercise could change that.
I wrote a short intro/prologue/exposition for the story in dutch, and reading what I wrote is kind of making me cringe. I don't like reading creative works in my native language so maybe I should switch to English, or maybe I should suck it up and open my mind.

What do?

Very good read. It's an unbiased take on the rise of "safetyism" culture.

You should read Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master And Margarita. Trust me. It's a trip and it's legit classic lit.

Darwin's Origin of Species

https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1228

It surprised me how much modern basic biology (just the shit you learn in high school ie. all organisms are derived from a single ancestors, survival of the fittest, and Kingdom, Phylum, Class, etc.) is stuff that Darwin was advocating for based on his ideals about adaptation and survival of the fittest. How he identifies and debates the arguments against his ideas and how many of these arguments are the same we have today as they were almost 200 years ago when he penned it. I linked the 1st edition because that is what I read. Some people like the 6th and call it "The Definitive Edition".

What is an onion
When there are two domes
If it's from a city
South of Rome

Is it in gravy
Or is it in bread
What is a turnip
When it's sour fed

Put it in the pasta
Put it in the meat
When they're in my mind
You are the best treat
