Of anime, books and Danish Philosophers

The gap between each of my posts is steadily increasing and I am truly, truly saddened. And sorry.

It’s been nine days since I last posted and maybe I start that invaluable habit of queuing posts only they won’t be daily life posts then. They will be reviews, discussions on certain topics and so on and so forth but if that’s what I have to do prevent myself being away for a looooooooongt time, well let’s start queueing

But anyway what have I been doing?

I watched Baccano!, an anime series that just blew my mind, not because of the art quality or such (the animations were mostly pretty ordinary) but because of the story. Throw in non-linear narrative and ultra-violence into a boiling stew of mid 1930’s chicago filled with rival gangs, an old man searching for immortality juice and a bunch of alchemists who ARE immortal thanks to their exploits on a ship at sea in the 1700’s and you’ve got a wonderful stew.

Maybe I’ll write a detailed account of it later but for now suffice it to say it’s good.

I’ve also been reading. Of my four library books, I’ve finished three.

I did Colpetty People first and it was ok.

Then I did Captain Corelli’s Mandolin and that was pure genius.

Then I finished Desert Flower and that was just….I can’t even.

And I’m reading the Angle of Incidence and for the most part it’s good but in then other place it gets so bad I have to force myself to keep reading.

I also have been doing on Online Course organized by The University of Copenhagen on Kierkegaard’s analysis of Subjectivity, Irony and Crisis of Modernity.

Basically it’s an in-depth look at Soren Kierkegaard’s ideas and philosophies. It’s also however an in-depth look at Socrates and Plato at the same time.

Which is interesting because I like any kind of intellectually profound jargon that makes me feel intelligent so it’s good.

And it’s free so there’s that too.

I’ve also started working on…well it’s hard to say right now what it’l turn into but I’m hoping it will turn into a full fledged story. I’m extending one of the short stories I wrote earlier but as to which story that is, I shall remain silent.

I think that’s it.

Lessons:

1. Queue

2. Immortality has it’s drawbacks.

3. I can’t even begin to describe the atrocious and cruel nature of Female Circumcision, or to use the more apt name, Femal Genital Mutilation. Most of the girls who have it done on them die from shock, infection or blood loss. Those who survive are left with a sewed up genital area that makes menstruation and urination so painful, they sometimes pass out from the shock.

Accomplishment.
