So, I haven't posted forever because life is unimportant. But books matter and I just bought great imposing stacks of them.
cheap used books from harvard bookstore
En attendant Godot - beckett lol
ESPERANTO: A COMPLETE COURSE FOR BEGINNERS - just so I have a comeback when eurofags bother me about my patriotic monolingualism
Borges and the Eternal Orangutans - meh, brain candy
Latin for Even More Occasions: "HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN! Another Latin book? Now you say, "Est admodum quod volvi!" (it's just what I wanted.) "Ecce, deuvo ago, sicut soleo! Non enim possum facere quia Latine loquav." Amusante, n'est-ce pas? Well, tete oblecta! (have fun) -Elyabett JAN. '92
Confessions of a Mask - "AH YES! Cut me! No, this isn't homoerotic sadomasichism, it's ancient samurai virtue..." (Note: I was going to make an AIDs joke here, then changed my mind because I didn't want to offend people. Then I realized I'm actually an ass and so added this note, hoping someone would be offended.)
MIT Press Book Store
Consciousness: a user's guide - I actually paid real money for this, so it better be interesting. It looks like a good overview, with a decent amount fof wit.
Inside & Out of Byzantium - "I think in different languages, my black is your white, and vice-versa. I try to think metaphorically and expect you to follow the abstract patterns of my thought." Short stories.
Belief Reports and the Structure of Believing - honestly, I just want material to bother my ToK teacher with. But it also mentions QUINE. Fuck you, analytic-synthetic distinction.
Historical Linguistics: An Introduction - HARK, STRANGER! Do you obey GRIMM's LAW?
What Every Engineer SHould Know About AI -( I've actually read part of this one. It's dated (1988) but awwright. (However, the author has a twisted mind: (Query? Flee? No. Fight? No. Feed? No. Attempt to Fondle!! Result: Skinny, Big green Eyes, Nice Legs, Bright. Decision: "Hey baby, I/O?" Timeout.)))
