I'm not sure it's pretty exactly. It's Dostoyevsky. He's not pretty. But it's powerful. It's epic. It's funny. Its intelligent. It's full of life.

I read TBK in Thailand when I was 19. Being 19, surrounded by beaches and drunken young women, reading TBK, says it all about me really and most of it was completely lost on me. I just wanted to be able to say I'd read it, I suppose. As far as I recall the best bit is the bit everybody knows about with the grand inquisitor where Dostoevsky accidentally proves that god's a bastard or doesn't exist.

That was the sequel to me reading "It" by Stephen King at Disneyland when I was 10.

One of these days I need to read "The Unamable" fully clothed in the middle of a drugfuelled supermodel orgy.

Currently reading bits and pieces of everything and nothing in particular. John Ruskin today has accompanied me to the V&A. Aka. Day #123564 without sex.

Your fingers melting into the keys while outside husky gammons sidle about with ar15s.

No offence, this is what I'm seeing online.

winter withered, warm
The fires lent an apocalyptic feeling to the state, for sure. The sun appeared red through the smoky overcast.

But my laptop hasn't exploded yet.

Have you ever visited the UK?

When I went to the US I remember this weird feeling, uncanny because it was so close to being like the UK but so far. Same language. Same sort of shops. But everything different. So that I can never say if the US was scary or if I was just scared cos of this uncanny valley effect. Also I was as mentioned upthread 10 years old and wasn't carrying either.
