I’d give anything to read Harry Potter from Malfoy’s perspective
The ferret chapter alone would be a masterpiece
This is my book blog. My main blog is openinvitation, don't be surprised to get a follow back from it.
My TV shows and films
My main obsession for a long time now is Stephen King. I read sci-fi, horror, fantasy, science books. The best story I have ever read is The Dark Tower, so expect a lot of that on your dashboard if you follow me.
Long day and pleasant nights.
See the turtle of enormous girth, on his shell he holds the Earth. His thought is slow but always kind, he holds us all within his mind.
ALL THINGS SERVE THE BEAM.
Is there a David Foster Wallace fandom? If so, can I find you guys? Can we talk about everything he’s ever written? Can we get into arguments about the end of Infinite Jest? Can we discuss his favorite essays? CAN WE DO THIS. DO YOU EXIST.
This is so beautiful :’)
I fucking love people who find street-side self-employment to do what they love. When I was in high school, there was a kid in my AP Bio class, really smart and intelligent and loved biology, but he was just so disillusioned with the academic situation in America that he didn’t even want to go to college. Our bio teacher asked him how he was going to find a career in biology without a degree, and he said he’d buy an electrophoresis kit and set it up in a city square and just let people watch the DNA fragments travel through the gel, and set out a hat or whatever to take donations. A biology street-performer. We all laughed, but last summer I was in Boulder, and there was this man on Pearl Street, along with the magicians and harpists and such, and he had a high-powered telescope. You could look through it and see the planets and stars in broad daylight, and he’d point them all out to you and give you a little lesson. He had a hat out and a cardboard sign asking for three dollars to look through the telescope, and he had a line of people. There’s something incredibly inspiring to me about the people who want to do something so badly that they’ll do it on the street if they have to.
I saw a guy giving free compliments, and taking donations on the street. He would wax poetic about the beauty of the people walking by - their hair, their clothing, “the light shines off the blue of your eyes, while the skies of venice weep in shame, to wish they could match a shade so clear and bright.” Dude had class.
No matter what gender or age passed by, he had something kind to say to them.
Made for “Month of Love” blog. Some Dark Tower art in progress.
So after reading TV tropes I’ve found something awesome about Infinite Jest. The name, as we know, is from hamlet. But what i didn’t know is that there are more parallels to the Shakespearean work.
What really blew my mind was that the first line in Hamlet is Bernardo asking “Who’s There?”
And this is the first sentence on the first page of Infinite Jest
