26/M. Can someone recommend a book on how one would become an alpha fucking male? I'm too generous and nice. I want to learn how to not give a fuck. And how to talk to women because I have absolutely no game.

Smoke weed and go to the bar with your friends a few times. You can figure out the whole world by observing other people and yourself. Figure out what works and write it down. With enough iterations you become God.

There's a book by John Alexander I think.
Become the alpha male or how to be the alpha male.
Oldie but goodie, pragmatic behavioral stuff, not much theory. Very good for "fake it til you make it"

As for why u even want to be the Alpha in the first place (maybe that's not even what your ideal partner is attracted to?)
Read "Models" by Manson

I would post these books but I don't have them anymore. If you find a link please share.

Actually I think I do have models. If you want a PDF lemme know.

Is there a sci-fi book out there that gives off a feeling like the one pic related film gives? If yes, please recommend me some.

The Stand honestly comes to mind. For much of its length it's too directed and eventful to have that vibe, but for dozens and sometimes hundreds of pages at a time it involves very small groups of people moving through empty country and confronting various mysteries and hazards, always with some far off goal they don't quite understand.

Very minor spoilers: The outbreak section of the book ends around page 200, and there's one very difficult journey through empty land near the end of the book.

I'll add that the first Dark Tower book does not have this feel at all even though it's also about one, two, maybe three people moving slowly and sometimes aimlessly through a wasteland. This is probably because it's peppered with interesting and dramatic flashbacks, and the scenery is too interesting. The Stand has a mundane quality about it, mostly familiar settings.

You might also enjoy Winterlong by Elizabeth Hand, though in addition to the stalking there's a lot of drama that plays out in the ruined museums and other landmarks of Washington, DC and the surrounding area.

What did you think of Roadside Picnic?




Ancient Novel Hipster Slut 17/06/05(Mon)22:51 No. 17818 [Reply]

File 149669590413.jpg - (82.93KB , 558x719 , Lucius_Apuleius_Platonicus,_from_'Crabbes_His.jpg )

Currently reading the 11th book of the Golden Ass for class, overrated piece of asinine shit that it is... Apuleius now gets a 12 vol. commentary (Groningen), with each miserable expression getting about 2 pages of notes on average. That's twice as much as Kirk & Edward's HOMER. The whole thing would on my estimate weigh about 48 pounds; not at all bad for a Madurian fucking upstart. Aristonicus be damned.
Philologists and "Classicists" can't seem to get enough of him, I haven't an inkling why. His latin is as perturbed as a contortionist orgy, heaping senseless upon senseless participles, florid adjectives that you can't even tell aren't substantives half the time, almost disposing of reasonable syntax - let alone periodic structure! And of course the literature isn't worth it. All this kitschy, baroque tripe, used to express the stupidest banalities in the most roundabout way possible (like in the proem with the horse... has an entire book on it btw, from Brill); a stylistic crambe repetita that makes the Declamator's plight in Juvenal seem enviable.
But how well I would've liked for the commentators to flock around this piece just because of the linguistic difficulty and the endless use of figures. They seem to be more interested in the CONTENTS, for god's sake! What a queer thing is the academic zeitgeist. I mean, it must be his salaciousness, lack of moral standards and insipid spirituality that really gets to them.

And I guess all this talk about the Ancient Novel really serves very little else. Aren't these just all mediocre, self-indulgent romances? I concede that the Ancients' had probably achieved something far greater than the Moderns ever had with poetry, history, oratory and even plain intelligent prose; but novels were an inferior literary style, and hence what we got is worthless. Petronius might be the only one who doesn't make for an insufferable read, but even he is just so vicious.
What do you think? Would the intelligent reader really miss that much if he or she'll jump straight to Boccacio?

The reasen why the golden ass gets so much attention is because no other complete latin novel survives.
Sure it's not that good, but if it's all there is, what are you gonna do about it?

I’m thinking of leaving my office job with the police force for a job in the health department. Can you pimp my resignation letter? Here’s what I’m thinking:
“You asked on the way back from DFO why I don’t want to work for the dept health, and I’ve been wondering that even since. Since it is about the meaningful of my work, and what could be more meaningful for me than doing the good work like police, and I’ve realised that for me it really is the dept health. Even though I might not have a job there after 12 months, I want to give it a go.”
