Swapped from the library's copy to my own and somehow it feels less good. having it be a loosely congealed mess of paper felt right
Local hacker tgirl. I read kinda whatever but I like a lot of scifi, cyberpunk and similar genres. Occasionally I make it through something more IRL but you know what they say about anarchists reading theory.
I'm in an intense lovehate with every murakami main character. I refuse to read the unspoken tranny required reading list.

Cyberspace may or may not offer some degree of freedom to those who can afford to use and explore it; but whatever it might offer, it offers on the condition that we check our bodies at the door: voluntary amputation. Remember, you are a body at least as much as a mind: is it freedom to sit, stationary, staring at glowing lights for hours, without using your senses of taste, touch, or smell? Have you forgotten the sensations of wet grass or warm sand under bare feet, of eucalyptus tree or hickory smoke in your nostrils?
Did crimethinc just tell me to go touch grass???
So what can we embrace in place of History? Myth. Not the obscurist superstitions and holy lies of religion and capitalism, but the democratic myths of storytellers. Myth makes no claims to false impartiality or objective Truth, it does not purport to offer an exhaustive explanation of the cosmos. Myth belongs to everyone, as it is made and remade by everyone, so it can never be used by one group to lord itself over another
something about this really inspired me :)
