I recently bought a book of translations of Old English poetry and am enjoying it a lot. I used to read a lot of REH as a kid (Conan, kull, Solomon) and a lot of the poetry in this collection reminds me of the heroic adventure type poetry that REH wrote.

Do you guys know of any recommendations for other poetry along these lines? Narrative poems that deal with battles, traveling, exotic lands, etc. I'm mostly familiar with the epics like Homer, Gilgamesh, Beowulf, Theogony, etc but I'm looking for poems that are more in the shorter formats.

I wonder, what have you learned from a philosopher or piece of philosophy that has had a practical impact on your life?

As I've grown many philosophers have influenced my thinking up until I reached Buddha. I've been a fan of Plato, Max Stirner, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Epictetus, Confucius, and Nietzsche.

But through Buddha I encountered Nagarjuna. From Nagarjuna I discovered Tsongkhapa.

There's no going back once you've reached the pinnacle of thought. Nagarjuna showed that all can be negated. Tsongkhapa showed that negation does not mean a new position is being posited. Now I'm studying the 'Awareness and Knowledge' literature present in the monastic community. The different types of thought and mind. I'm grateful to have the monastics of the Gelug tradition in my area and being open to helping discuss and understand these incredibly difficult topics.

That's interesting! Do say more

I'm just starting to get into some Buddhism, the idea of cultivating Bodhicitta appeals to me. It's like that universal love for mankind that Jesus talked about, but without all that higher power taint. There are also practical exercises for how to attain it, where as in Christianity we were just told to love our smelly neighbor, we were never told how on earth to do that.

Anyone writing? Post what you're writing and get ideas/feedback

I'm working on a uncanny vally book where a guy gets stranded in a weird town. Unsure why, and it's really not progressing trying to tie things together like why the town is coo-coo. NFI what I'm doing at this point.

Trying to develop a narrative on the uncertainty of a lot of our society and how it effects us as spiritual beings. Internet, commodification of culture and existence, the black hole of drugs, crime, ideology. Thinking of tying it into a source portal that is corrupting the townspeople and a man has to struggle to try and survive and flick the switch off on this portal before it and the townspeople get him.

Right now I'm writing a sort of one-shot, very short epistolary thing. It might be too subtle for most people but I suppose I'll have to wait and see.

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.

Reading my way through "the good man Jesus and the scoundrel Christ". Really boring prose and the plot's utterly transparent if you have even an inkling of Pullman's world view. Oh look there are two dudes and one of them is just preaching while a mysterious angel referred to as " the stranger " is slyly getting the other dude to do organised religion. Wow so subtle I bet nobody else has ever read Twain and this isn't obvious. Ugh. I don't dislike Pullman but this book isn't for me, I don't know who'd enjoy reading this.

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

Amazon is complete shit these days. More than half the time shit shows up late anymore. And 90% of the books I've ordered in the past 4-5 years have showed up damaged because they can't be bothered to package books properly. They used to shrink rap all their books to cardboard which was excellent for shipping. Now it's either a cheap plastic bag or they just throw the book loose into a box that's 5x as big as the fucking book.

And yeah, I've gotten editions of books that are completely different than what was advertised. One time it wasn't even the same fucking publisher. Createspace which is amazons house imprint is a fucking joke too, I got a copy of the gadfly that was literally a copy and paste from Gutenberg.

Fuck Amazon if you weren't sure where I was going with this.

I'm on the lookout for some comfy books about real stuff.
Travel journals are often neat, really liked A Year In Provence by Peter Mayle.
Started on Pilgrimage to Mecca by Lady Evelyn Cobbold recently, but since the entries are dated I decided to read it at the same dates as they're written.

Jack London's stories about the Yukon gold rush are fictional, but he actually went there and experienced it, so there is factual basis for much of his settings.

Rate my novel I'm working on lads. Here's the gist of it.

>a soldier called Eddie gets kicked out of the British army for deserting so he returns to his home in Liverpool. He struggles with PTSD, anger issues and alcoholism. Finding it hard to assimilate to civilian life, he gets a job working as a security guard for a shopping mall. He dreams of someone attacking him with a knife so he has an excuse to beat them senseless. Among all of this, he has an unexpected child with a woman he has fallen out of love with but he tries to stick with her for the sake of the child. Eventually the friction becomes overbearing so he moves out of the house and lives in his car. He begins to have delusions that his car is a ship and that he is a pirate sailing the high waves. He eats limes to prevent scurvy and he drinks copious amounts of rum.

This is what I have so far, any ideas where I could take it?
