TFW you want to read Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina back to back, but you recognize it wouldn't be good for your mental health.

And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I'm holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don't know what I'm waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

"I have never seen "Volcanoes"" - Emily Dickinson.

Still one of my favourite poems.

One of my favourite quotes from Stephen Fry's "Heroes", by far :

"Athenians representations of the older, post-Hades Theseus, portray him as a "hypolipsos", essentially "assless". Think Mick Jagger."

The hold that "Moana" has on my tear ducts, man...

, how/when do you decide to a ?

I've been trying to read "The battle for God" by Karen Armstrong, but it's kinda boring. And this is coming from someone who took a few History of Religions/Christianity courses in uni.

"An ocean of noise: how sonic pollution is hurting marine life."

Today’s oceans are a tumult of engine roar, artificial sonar and seismic blasts that make it impossible for marine creatures to hunt or communicate. We could make it stop, so why don’t we?

Questo post mi fa pensare al film "The Lighthouse". Quando l'amore per la lampada di un faro diventa un po' malsano ^^'

Studenti di lettere o appassionati, quali sono le vostre fonti per lo studio della letteratura italiana, soprattutto a cavallo tra 1800 e 1900?

Se avete fonti che si focalizzano sul teatro, ancora meglio.

[...] Recueil de nouvelles tournant autour d'une communauté de réfugiés cambodgiens installée en Californie. Dans ces histoires, il s'agit, notamment, de parler de leurs fils, vivant en dissonance entre leur vie d'américains racisés et d'héritiers du traumatisme générationnel d'un genocide. S'il y a des pépites, il y a souvent des moments qui ne marchent pas bien, pas authentiques. Dommage, parce que cet auteur a des belles idées à partager.

Derniers livres lus:

- "Frantz Fanon" de Frédéric Ciriez et de Romain Lamy. BD utilisant un "mystérieux week-end" (c'est écrit comme ça dans la description) que Fanon a passé a Rome avec Sartre, de Beauvoir et Lanzmann comme prétexte pour le raconter en son histoire, sa philosophie et son combat. J'ai aimé pouvoir mieux connaître Fanon, mais j'ai trouvé tout le reste maladroit.

- "Afterparties" d'Anthony Veasna So. [...]

[...] Ça commence comme un roman psychologique, après ça devient un thriller...? Roman sombre, plein de rebondissements.
