Lonesome Dove - Larry McMurtry

Took me a while to get through it, but really enjoyed it. Found myself laughing out loud from time to time, although, not a funny book at all.
Very well written.

I started reading the Bible and was getting through it but then got exasperated with the thous the begats and so on. I think it was Auden who said "thou shalt not read the Bible for thine prose !" Another day probably a rainy day ! I had some knowledge from childhood but decided to read it cover to cover or try to. Hitchens and Dawkins would be pleased with my failure !

No prophecy required as we've done it all before, over and over and over again. Rust Cohle says time is a flat circle.

Genealogy of Morals

is always a good place to start for wormy little trauma/drama addicts. Or the neurotic/anxious population at large

Who is following whom, I forget. ;) Something about transference with a touch of denial. *Culture* - now that's clear.

More slave logic. Let. It. Go. (little terrier)

No one responded to you.

On topic: for transference I'd go to the Laplanche/Pontalis compendium.

Anyone with any sentience can see your pattern repressed queen. The arbiter of all things *cultural* :lol:

She's very well, thanks for asking. She had a scare with an lymph node under her arm. She was afraid it might be cancer, or Lupus related, but so far it just looks like an infected node. :)

Back in the politics thread we talk about all things politically correct and incorrect with inpunity, now some little Saddo who had his *** handed to to him the backwards North American hinterlands wants to gauge my sexuality because I'm more culturally adept and his emotional life has never broken puberty. Wonder why I left.

Oh boo hoo. Couldn't care less about your sexuality excepting how it so obviously stains your worldview. An A-hole is an A-hole is an A-hole but knowing you're a bent mast is helpful in terms of where you're coming from.

Yes it's all very queer. C'mon, you're not that thick. Plus you're a mean dink, but that's an aside.

It's been real babe. Keep your 5 year old alive.

I'm more mutable than that. Later.
