indiriverflow11:30pm: Chuck 'em if they can't shake a yoke!


What will Winter Solstice bring in 2012? ...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia? These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!
Reality Exchange Program
"Makes DMT seem like a whip-it."

Crazy Bear said there'd be days like this. As usual, no one believed him. Now, all I want to know is: where IS that lifeboat, and how DO I ditch this ship of fools, without any of these bliss ninnies noticing that I'm already gone?
Captain, my ass. We are equal in this sea of madness.
That iceberg is looking awfully big.

Amana Mission is on a quest to save the world, and the only problem is, she can't remember why she got involved with such an obvious scam in the first place. Jesus saves. Christ. What a loser.
Kali kills first, and recycles later.
Hitchhikers, load up for a ride to the Other Side. You may wish you had gone Greyhound.
"What the...?"
*A cranky band of prankster peace warriors who absolutely cannot resist messing with each other's minds, no matter the cost.
*Cocky alchemy-dabbling quantum surfers, navigating the Ethersphere with hand-held computers, switching timelines to find a better party vibe and swap tips about the best temporary toilets for use as interdimensional portals.
*A burnt-out visionary hippie millionaire on a mission from Gaia to build a better "communitopia" by underwriting a convoy carrying telepathic priestesses.
*A wheelchair-bound mindpilot propelling a crystal-powered Seed Bank toward the post-Apocalyptic Garden, with psychic precision...and a predilection for high-velocity extreme driving.
*Hermaphrodite time-jumper fleeing a fate worse than death.
*Anarchist ghettoes where anything goes-except escape.
*Ancient Principals vying like sweatsoaked carpetbaggers for our loyalty as the Final Vote is tallied.
*Long-haired security patrols collecting a cannabis tribute tax from all pilgrims to the Valley of Fun.
*And an underground meat mafia bringing a black magic revival to a bloodless dreamworld gone bland.
All brought together by a secret psychedelic superdrug that tunes users in to reality through the eyes of another archetypal avatar inhabiting a different state of space and time. Mahayana made easy. Budding Buddha natures are running amuck on a virtual superhighway where all roads lead to the Bo tree and singularity.
Twenty-first century Tantra is about more than sex, drugs, and rock and roll.Confronting the Karma of every wasted breath is only the first step.
Welcome to the End Times. Kali awaits. She already knows who you are.
Do you?
The 21st century counterculture is even weirder than it appears on the surface. This is not your mommy’s MTV Road Rules.
Ride along on this mesmerizing, metaphor-packed bus trip toward ecstasy and enlightenment, as three real-time guides-Amana, Sissy, and Deva, let you in on what they learned when they asked what It was really all about, after all.
Become them for a multilevel metafictional tour of infinity and awaken yourself to the miracle-a-minute magic of mighty Mother Kali!

kiwiparadise6:09pm: " Then came a time i can hardly describe, a season underground. A bird trapped in a sewer, wings beating against the ceiling in that dark wet place, while the city rumbled on overhead. Her name was Lost. Her name was Nobody's Daughter. In my dreams, my mother walked through a city of bricks and rubble, a city after war, and she was blind, her eyes empty and white as stones. There were tall apartments all around her, with triangles over windows, all bricked up and burning. Blind windows , and her blind eyes, and yet still she came toward me, inevitable and insane. I saw that her face was melted and horribly pliable. There were hollows in the tops of her cheeks, and under her eyes, as if someone had pressed into soft clay with their thumbs. Those heavy days, how heavy the low gray sky, my wings were so heavy, so heavy my panicked flight under the ground. So many faces, so many lips, wanting me to tell, it made me tired, i fell asleep as they spoke. Just tell us what happened. What could i tell? I opened my mouth, a stone fell out. Her poor white eyeballs. Just where i hoped to find mercy. I dreamed of white milk in the streets, white milk and glass. Milk down the gutter, milk like tears. I kept her kimono against my face, her scent of violets and ash. I rubbed the silk between my fingers." - One of my favorite parts in the book White Oleander..an awsome awsome novel!
tropical9353:51pm: Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros
Ok folks...this is my new favorite book because i can relate a lot to it at this moment in my life and i just love cisneros' style of writing...here is a eautiful excerpt that i want to share with everyone...
"A person of independence, who does not need nor want us, inspires our admiration, and admiration is a love potion. A person who needs us too much, who is weak with neediness, inspires pity. And pity, the other side of admiration, is the antidote of love."
sandra Cisneros

I'll probably share more...
have a good one everyone...

lovely_shadow8:15pm: Hello I just joined because I love discussing a good book. Right now I'm reading a book called "Wasted" about one girls experiances with anorexia, bulimia, sex, and drugs. It's an amazing book. Can't wait to read a book with this community so I can talk about it!

4th February 2004

cherry_torte1:45pm: I hope I'm not getting ahead of myself here, but I thought I'd suggest some books.
Well, two actually and they're both long. Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates and A Fine Balance by Rohinton (I think) Mistry. They were recommended to me by my old English AP teacher back in h.s. She has GREAT taste in books btw. Anyone have a problem with long books? They're both around 700 pgs. ^^;;

Blonde is the fictional life story of Marilyn Monroe.
A Fine Balance takes place in India. Four people of different castes are forced to live together under one roof.

Very general descriptions, I know, but I don't have the books here with me and I haven't read them yet, anyway. ^^;;

cherry_torte1:32pm: new person here
Hi! This seems like quite an interesting community. I love to read, but all my friends hate to read so I have no one to gush to about recent reads. I'm looking forward to the next book so I can jump in and join the discussions. ^_^

tropical93510:18pm: Interpretations please
I seriously dont understand why i hadnt read Go Ask Alice...i mean teachers in junior high level should definatly make the teanagers read it...i mean what this girl put herself through...the drugs and the life...its just unbareable to think that any girl could be a victim...God forbid...oh i would die..i dont even wanna think about what i feel like i wanna write...when she's at the rally in souther california where the "...acid and booze and pot as free as the air..." was her new best friend, she writes ends her entry with a beautiful note. She writes about a fat girl with a guy with a ring in his noise and multi-color designs on his bald head..."They keep saying 'love' to each other. It's beautiful to watch. Color intermingled with color. People intermingled with people. Color and people intercoursing together." (95) Can someone please tell me the meaning of that quotation...especially the part about color and people intercoursing...
I am really ashamed of myself for smoking pot...even if it was just one time...i thought it was cool, but now that i think of it, it was probably one of the dumbest things i have ever done in my life...i am going to live my life as a role model for my niece...

eleme8:21pm: Glory days
What do you guys think of Charlie's thoughts about the glory days? I remember I was struck by the way he thought about events, for example at the football game I remember him thinking, "These are the glory days for that boy" I remember being blown away by the way he put together the present with that person's future and the stories they would tell looking back. Hmm :) Just a thought.
angeloflove6:42pm: come on everyone!
lets start discussing this book!
please feel free to make your own post about whichever part of the book, or subject brought up in the book that peaked your interest, and you want to discuss!

so... I'm going to start two threads going myself...feel free to comment, contribute, disagree or agree, or start your own...please, this doesn't work without participation :)

okay, so my first question is:
what do you think, of all the events in the book, was the most significant in changing Charlies life?
please give reasons why you think so.

I think the first thing I would probably jump to saying would be remembering that his aunt molested him.
but thinking about it further, I don't think that was the most significant event that changed him. I think his friendships with Sam & Pat were actually more significant in his life than that trauma he experienced, though that was a very important part as well. I just think a lot of the time, people are too quick to blame the bad things that happened for bad changes in their life, and not as quick to embrace the good things that have happened, and realize what a positive impact they have had as well. :)
livsmama2:05pm: I never received the book that I was going to get for this discussion, so I will await the next choice.

1st December 2003

angeloflove6:37pm: slight off topic...
but since I'm the moderator, I get to do things like this =oP

I was recently sent a letter for a book exchange thing. Like those panty/sticker/whatever ones, basically where you send a used book to the person at the top of the list, take their name off, put your own at the bottom of the list, and send it on to six other people. You are supposed to end up receiving 36 used books by the end, for one of your own. Apparently, people rarely drop out of this one...so if anyone would be interested, I still need 5 more people who would want to do this :) just leave a comment & let me know if you are interested!
aboveandbeneath1:00am: I'll start a discussion...

Did everyone catch the fact that Charlie was moltested by his aunt? I've lent this book to a bunch of people and a few of them (even I at first, I'll admit) didn't realize this at first. It hints to it a few times, but the big one is when it says that he had a dream that seemed real that his Aunt Helen was touching him the way that Sam did.

So if you caught this (or if you're going back to catch it now), does it make sense to you or does it seem like a contrived shocker? I personally think it fits right in with the story and explains a lot. One person I lent it to said that they thought it seemed like the author jst stuck it in there.

Anyway, I hope everyone liked the book. It's one of my favorites and I'm eager to discuss it.
angeloflove1:03am: Okay, so...technically it is Monday...
so we can begin the discussion about "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" anytime now. Anyone feel free to bring up a certain discussion at any time by making your own post!

I only ask a couple things.

!) Use lj-cut if your post is quite lengthly. I'm going to assume that people are only reading the discussion if they have read the book, or if they aren't going to read it, but just want to read the discussion, so we don't need "spoiler" posts, but it would be helpful if you could give a quick synopsis if you have a long point to make, then delve deeper.

2) No name calling, or bashing of people. Don't take it personally.

If you aren't sure where to begin, think about the first "issue" that you had in the book, like, lets say for example, the issue of his sister being with an abusive boyfriend? Feel free to quote certain parts, and share your opinions on everything.

So, go ahead & start!

aboveandbeneath8:51pm: If you like having your opinions on books, I thought you might enjoy hearing about my new community...

I'm so excited to discuss Perks! I love that book!

angeloflove2:58pm: The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Okay, I think everyone has had more than enough time to pick the book up, and read most, if not all of it.
So, you have 6 days left to finish up, review, prepare what you would like to discuss etc. We will begin discussion on Monday, December 1st.

A few days beforehand I will posting a short overview of how the discussion should & should not proceed, so we don't step on each others toes or anything. Happy reading!

kindegartenfool6:45am: does anybody know where i can find the kurt cobain journals? it's not in my library becuase my library sucks. they didn't even have perks of being a wallflower. roar.

angeloflove12:29pm: when shall we begin?
Okay, so, I bought the perks of being a wallflower, and read it rather quickly since it wasn't too long, so I'm wondering how far along people are? when do you think would be a good time to wrap up the reading & head into the discussion? I had initially given 1 week to buy the book, 3 weeks to read...but I'm not sure if we need to wait that long? so let me know your thoughts!
rachkat92611:14am: i picked up "the perks of being a wallflower" the other day and have read the first chapter. who else has picked it up and when are we going to chat about it??

can't wait to climb into bed and read this :)
