I've been extremely bored this morning so I've taken a few random pics. Of our Christmas tree and my room mostly. Random. Really. And beware, my table is a mess.

Pics (nothing special though, so don't get your hopes up) )

I need to read a whole fucking book in probably a day and a half 'cause I'm so fucking lazy. It's 'Lucky Jim' by Kingsley Amis, I need to read it English but the language is kinda weird and difficult (as it was written in 1950s or smt) so I guess I'll end up reading it just for the sake of reading it and won't remember anything anyways. God, sometimes I really wanna slap myself 'cause I'd totally deserve it *sigh*

When I take a break from the damn book (which will be soon, I assume) I might post a lengthy rant or might dig up some Bradford pics and post at least a couple 'cause I think you guys deserve to see them for putting up with me when I was ranting 24/7 about it. But, knowing myself, I won't promise anything.

Okay, so seeing as my net just won't behave, I have no other option but to write. Which is not that bad actually, as the deadline for the LP fic exchange is getting closer and I have virtually nothing. Well, almost.

The next part of the fic I wanna write requires dialogue, which I really suck at. I'll have to do it somehow though. But why I'm saying that, I've been going through my book of quotes (The Wit & Wisdom of Great Writers) and found this awesome one:

'I'm not too keen on characters taking over, they do as they are damn well told.'  Ian Banks

Well, I'd need an attitude like that right now=)

And this one really amused me:

'I am a drinker with a writing problem.' Brendan Behan

There are exactly 1359 qutes in that book so I might post some more in the future=)

So I went for the blood tests today. The nurse was slightly unhinged but mostly it was okay. I have no clue when or who will get the results, but I don't really care that much. Then I decided to go the dermatologist and I'm glad I did... She gave me antibiotics for the thingies on my arm, some bacterial infection or what. Then I showed her my feet and she was like 'this is gonna be difficult...' Oh the luck of  having atopic dermatitis and warts on your foot. So she prescribed me like gazillion different creams and shit like that which cost a small fortune (the antibiotics were more expensive than all the other stuff combined though) and I'm supposed to be going there like every month preferably for some warts treatment. Oh well.

Also, I should write. Like, really.

And, I promised (kinda)

 that I'd put up some poems from the book by Tim Burton I bought in England. The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories

Okay, so I wanted to post something here solely for the purpose of bumping down the last post (that makes me nervous) but didn't know what as this week has been extremely boring and uninteresting so far. Therefore I'm posting a bunch of my fave book quotes.

“Every man has inside himself a parasitic being who is acting not at all to his advantage.”  William S. Burroughs
 
"I reread Camus on suicide as the logical choice in an absurd world."

"On Monday mornings I would stare at the bottle of strychnine on my cabinet shelf. I would dream for hours of nuclear holocausts searing the streets of Manhattan clean, of streamrollers accidentally flattening my wife, of taxis taking my rival Dr. Ecstein off into the East River, of a teen-age baby-sitter of ours shrieking in agony as I plowed away at her virgin soil." 
Luke Rhinehart   "The Dice Man"

"There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie and Dim. And we sat in the Korova Milkbar, trying to make up our razudoks what to do with the evening. The Korova Milkbar sold milk-plus; milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and get you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence."

"What does God want? Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses the bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?"  Anthony Burgess "A Clockwork Orange"

"
The only thing I know is everything you love will die. The first time you meet that someone special, you can count on them one day being dead and in the ground."

"Since change is constant, you wonder if people crave death because it is the only way they can really get anything finished." Chuck Palahniuk "Survivor"

"All these people who say they want a life free from sexual compulsion, I mean forget it. I mean, what could ever be better than sex? For sure, even the worst blow job is better than, say, sniffing the best rose... watching the greatest sunset. Hearing children laugh. I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a hot-gushing, butt-cramping, gut-hosing orgasm." Chuck Palahniuk "Choke"

"One minute was enough, Tyler said, a person had to work hard for it, but a minute of perfection was worth the effort. A moment was the most you could ever expect from perfection." Chuck Palahniuk "Fight Club"

"You always said, don’t face a problem, burn it. Well, now I’ve done both. Good-bye, Captain.” Ray Bradbury "Fahrenheit 451"

"One always dies too soon -- or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are -- your life, and nothing else." Jean Paul Sartre "No Exit"

Aw, that's made me feel incredibly better. I'm such a bookworm. If you decide to read any of those books you probably won't regret it=)

I've just started to read The Western Lands by William S. Burroughs and I already love it. I think he's my favourite writer now. Sorry Chuck, I enjoy Bill's writing a tiny bit better. I think I might even like this book more than Naked Lunch, which I simply adore. Well, I see how it turns out, so far it's awesome. Obviously, I strongly recommend you to read something by Burroughs as he's just amazing. I'd start with Junkie =)

I'm considering applying to a 'working camp' in summer. You know, the place where you do voluntary work for food and accommodation. I'd want to go to the UK and preferably work with disabled children. Also, I'm gonna spend all my money on the application and see what happens. It's just something I need to do and even if I wasn't accepted it'd be worth trying at least. Really, I need to stop being so dependent and cowardly and do something on my own finally. I'm really not happy with how my life has turned out so it's time to do something about it. This might be the start, who knows.

Finally, we have a free day on Monday as there are entrance tests being written in our school. Poor kids, trying to get there lol But hey, if it means no school for us I don't care about them=)

I've always loved books but lately (without me even realizing it) it's grown into an obsession. Or maybe a fetish. I've wanted to buy Requiem for a dream by Hubert Selby for a while (have seen the movie recently, loved it) but couldn't find it anywhere. And today,  I've gone to a bookshop which was kinda a last resort and, believe it or not, they've had it! I've almost orgasmed right there and then, no kidding. Then I've realized they had also Naked Lunch by William Burroughs and that's been too much for me, had to leave... lol

I mean, I don't even read THAT much, just love books. Buying them, even only looking at them... I know I'm weird.
barush: (ears bleed)
I mean, I read a lot. I've always read loads of books, but recently this amount has grown lol Simply, 'cause I kinda have to read a ridiculous number of novels for my exam from literature in June... Anyways, somehow I got to "The Wall" by Jean-Paul Sartre...

I haven't been so touched by a short story like that in a long time... I mean in a
long time. In the book, there are five stories. I've just finished the first one entitled "The Wall", same as the book itself. Just to be clear. The four others are still waiting for me, but they won't be for long as I have no school today and nothing better to do.

Anyways, the story is set in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. It's ridiculously powerful and full of existential feelings. It shows that life really sucks, no matter how much you're trying to make it better. Sad, but real.

Has anyone of you seen Eyes Wide Shut directed by Stanley Kubrick? It's an awesome movie. I've seen it like 3 times so far but now I've finished reading the novel which served as a 'model' for that movie. It's a "Dream Novel" by Arthur Schnitzler. Loved the book as well and now I'm tempted to watch the movie yet again lol Probably will do despite my hatred for Nicole Kidman...ahem...lol

I know I've got a ton things to write right now but I just can't help myself=) Maybe it'll help me think about some cool angst instead of the lame stuff which is occupying the dark corners of my twisted mind at the moment...heh

Well, I think I'll stop babbling and go watch the movie.

Wow

Wow. I love those "oldish books internet bazaars"=) I requested 2 books yesterday and, believe it or not, I've got like three offers for each of them today lol Man, I'm so happy! I've been dying to read/re-read those 2, but most of all actually own them=) Yes, I'm a book freak, I admit it. I'm talking about "The Wall" by Jean Paul Sartre and "Voyeur" by Alberto Moravia.

The school is still boring and exhausting, of course. We've got so many things to do... More than I can remember we've ever had.

I'm supposed to write (yet another) fic for [profile] sadistic_bella 'cause it's her name day on 25th October and I'm determined to actually finish this one! I'm bad for not keeping my promises, I know. But I've got an idea for this one already=) It's overdone and lame and weird but that's best I can do at the moment...=( Oh well, damn you writer's block...

I'm going to my aunt's for the weekend so I won't be home. That means no net...*dies* Guess I'll have to manage somehow *sniff*

Anyways, I'm gonna watch CSI now=) Later.

Bad me!

DUDE!!!!

I haven't updated this in like forever!!

So I think I should write something just to feel better=)

Well, lots of stuff happened in my life since the last time I've written something here but nothing that major that would be worth mentioning. At least I guess so=)

Well, maybe that I somehow started to write Linkin Park fan fiction and actually enjoy! I know my fics didn't have a great success  but I'm only starting =) and besides, I'm no writer, although I'd love to become one. In my dreams, I know.

Oh, and tomorrow I'm getting my Deathly Hallows book! I'm so excited!! I'm getting it in English 'cause the Czech version will be available sometime around Christmas... But I wanna read it in original language anyways=)

Well, that's enough for now I guess=)

So maybe later, if I feel like writing something here (it's nor like anyone reads this)


Haunted

It might seem like I am haunted, but no (this time). It's a title of Chuck Palahniuk's book. Haunted.

I saw it in a store today and thought that I must have it. And surprisingly enough, my father offered to buy it for me.

I'm only at a page 30 now, but I know it'll be awesome:) a bit creepy, but breath-taking. But it's not any surprise, 'cause we're talking about a man who write a Bible. Well,
my bible. I mean Fight club, of course.

I'll provide you with further information when I've read more:)
