The “Everybody is done with everybody” Wedding

The other day I read this article that talks about how and why Game of Thrones, among other shows, can be watched as a comedy, and since season 4 started that’s basically the only thing I think about when I watch it

“You have to have really wide reading habits and pay attention to the news and just everything that’s going on in the world: you need to. If you get this right, then the writing is a piece of cake.” Terry Pratchett

my question really is what possessed this guy to write this book. I guess he thinks he’ll make tons of money?! or what?

You know, I think about it a lot. I don’t know anything about him and I’ve never met him, but I wonder who he is. (I don’t want to ask him because I’m sure in his head he’d be like “this female has read my words and now that she knows I’m an alpha male she wants to offer herself to me.”) I used to think he was very young and frustrated (the Nice Guy/brony/”friendzone” type). As I read more and more of his work, though, I think he’s older and really invested in sharing his vision of the world.

He doesn’t know how to build a sentence, or a paragraph, or a chapter, so he obviously doesn’t read a lot. And so, I think he has no idea that everything he writes has been written before by more articulate people. I think he’s writing this because he sincerely believes that this his “findings” must be unveiled to the public. It’s his ignorance of everything that’s ever been written (coupled with his obvious misogyny) that allows him to think there are enough “desperate” women to buy his self-published book and make him rich. I want to punch him in the face but I also feel sorry for him.

“If you are looking for a husband, you have to find out if [this man who came up to talk to you] wants to be in a relationship with you or just sleep with you. This is where it gets complicated. You cannot know this before he has slept with you” The “get a man” ebook guy

todayiwrotenothing:

I don’t know about other English-speaking cultures, but in Britain thick means dim, slow, a bit stupid. So I quite like the fact that the video for Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines features his surname as a hashtag in giant red letters. It’s like he’s misspelling an insult to himself. Flashing up #THICKE on the screen, he might as well include #STUPIDE #MORONE #IDIOTE #BRAINLESSE WANKERE

“For many years I have been spending a lot of time on the internet. In fact, I can’t really remember anything else I did in 2010. I tumbld, I tweeted, and I scrolled. This didn’t earn me any money but it felt like work. I justified my habits to myself in various ways. I was building my brand. Blogging was a creative act—even “curating” by reblogging someone else’s post was a creative act, if you squinted.” Emily Gould: How Much My Novel Cost Me
