Writer's Block: Reconsidering Children's Books   
02:21pm 18/10/2008
 
Have you ever gone back and re-read a book you loved as a child only to find it incredibly disturbing now that you're an adult? Like The Giving Tree, for example: a terrifying tale of self-sacrifice or a reassuring story of maternal love?


I actually found The Giving Tree very sad and disturbing even as a child. I think I was about six when we read it in first grade. That and I was nearly traumatized to death by Puff, The Magic Dragon.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Odd. Also, I most definitely do NOT have a Southern accent.

Feeling annoyed, I ripped open the envelope from the photographers that were at my graduation, expecting to find a god-awful proof that made me look fat as all hell. Much to my surprise one was GOOD. So good I ordered $20 worth of photos. Just 1 5x7 and 8 wallets (did I mention I'm going to illegally copy the 5x7 at work? No? Well I am), to give to family and friends.

Finally a picture where I don't look like a manatee.

  I have realized I am either an effing genius, or a fraudulent retard. I read three papers I wrote in my first semseter of college, and honestly... not that much different. You'd think I would have become a better writer after four years of being an English major. OK, two of them had weak thesi, one really didn't have one at all, but one paper was exactly like I write now. It was a damn nice little paper.

Thanks, college. I needed to spend $20,000 so you could tell me I'm a good writer.

In any case, I have to go write my second-to-last college paper!

You fit in with:
Spiritualism



Your ideals are mostly spiritual, but in an individualistic way. While spirituality is very important in your life, organized religion itself may not be for you. It is best for you to seek these things on your own terms.


40% spiritual.
40% reason-oriented.

Ancient Greek Ethics

Aristotle's Golden Mean is the principal of this ethical school of thought. Essentially everyone must find balance in ethical decisions. Since it is often difficult to come to a decision one way or the other, Aristotle suggests comprimising between two extremes and doing what would fall into 'the Golden Mean' in the situation.

Oh Great Cthulhu!

I have been an extremely diligent devotee this year.

In January, I legally changed my name to Randolph Carter (-40 points). In July, I burnt my copy of the Necronomicon (-75 points). Yesterday, I rammed a ship into you (sorry Cthulhu!) (-1000 points). In September, I recruited [info]nerdcorebrigade as a new cultist (30 points). In February, I exposed [info]billabongboi to soul-rending horrors (250 points). Last week, I sacrificed [info]kittydoom to Cthulhu (500 points).

In short, I have been very bad (-335 points) and deserve to be fed to the ghouls.


Your humble and obedient servant,
_vitabrevis_


Submit your own plea to Cthulhu!

Name some friends or leave them blank and let me look them up myself:

  There’s a club, if you’d like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home, and you cry
And you want to die.

When you say it’s gonna happen now
Well, when exactly do you mean?
See, I’ve already waited too long
And all my hope is gone.

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way?
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does.





That's almost emo...

Scary.

There's 52 ways to murder anyone
One or two are the same
And they both work as well
I'm coming clean for Amy
Julie doesn't scream as well
And the cops won't listen all night
And so maybe, maybe I'll be over
Just as soon as I fill them all in.

And I can remember when I saw her last
We were running all around and having a blast
But the back seat of the drive-in
Is so lonely without you
I know when you're home
I was thinking about you
There was was something I forgot to say
I was crying on a Saturday night
I was out cruising without you
They were playing our song
Crying on Saturday night.

As the moon becomes the night time
You go viciously, quietly away
I'm sitting in the bedroom
Where we used to sit and smoke cigarettes
Now I'm watching, watching you die.

I can remember when I saw her last
We were running all around and having a blast
But the back seat of the drive-in
Is so lonely without you
I know when you're home
I was thinking about you
There was was something I forgot to say
I was crying on a Saturday night
I was out cruising without you
They were playing our song
Crying on Saturday night.
