Re: What are you robots reading right now?

Ivan Turgenev / The Brigadier

Erich Maria Remarque / All Quiet on the Western Front

Doris Lessing / The Grass Is Singing

Charles Bukowski / Post Office

(the afterword for the post office was by a swedish author, journalist and feminist. she starts to complain about this and that. that all her boyfriends have read bukovski, some even refer to him as buk. along with bukowski they used read burroughs, ginsberg, ferlinghetti, kerouac, céline, hammett and genet. damn girl, i see you haven't been dating any ordinary working-class boys (call me prejudiced). (in sweden the privileged cultural left-wing aristocracy lives in ivory towers from where they rarely venture out).

then she states that that together with the fact that men only reads male authors while girls are taught from childhood to read more diverse didn't make her especially interested in reading bukowski. do guys only read male authors? is that a fact? i had feminist girlfriend once who stated the same as a fact.

while i read the post office i was visiting the area where i grew up. a area with some problems, not the worst by far but the compulsory car burnings, kids with adidas pants, pitbulls, some crime and so on. cant help to think that if these boys where reading books a lot of the problems would go away. if they read bukowski, burroughs, ginsberg, ferlinghetti, kerouac, céline, hammett and genet, they might not (for examlpe) have time to poor gasoline down the garbage disposal. anyway...)

have to say i agree with cebtec, really, really good stuff...
in just some lines bukowski can paint a scene.

Charles Bukowski / Factotum

Re: What are you robots reading right now?

Chuck Wendig / Star Wars: Life Debt

Chris Kraus / I Love Dick
one of the most over-hyped books i ever read...


Chris and boyfriend Sylvere have dinner with a guy named Dick, once...
Chris perceived that Dick was flirting.
Chris gets obsessed and becomes short of a stalker (Goal: sleep with Dick).
Chris gets bored with poor Sylvere and dumps him only after see has striped him of all dignity.

Yada yada yada... the end.

Chris Kraus write I love Dick (real story) and gets celebrated/ hyped by lots of women.
"a rebellion against patriarchal oppression" a critic writes.
I love Dick becomes a feminist cult classic.


A creepy guy perceive a flirt from some random girl he never meet (lets call her Vic.)
Creepy guy becomes a stalker with only one thing on his mind: sex with Vic.
Creepy guy treats his girlfriend like shit and throws her out like she was an object
(no time for gf, being a creepy sexstalker guy is fulltime thing).

Yada yada yada... the end.

Creepy stalker guy write I love Vic (real story) and Gets celebrated/ hyped by the same women.
"one of the most important book about men and women the last century" a critic writes.
"I love Vic" becomes a feminist cult classic.
