  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    To go off somewhat tangentially, the language of the persons depicted has to match the language of the person in real life. I quite liked the language of the criminal maker in "Rule 34" matching the language of some guy...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    I remember it. There was a time you could watch MTV, though that might be me doing the "everything was better in the past" talk. I'm still not sure how much Beavis and Butthead shaped my taste in music, though....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Err, my head is a hot mess at the moment, but before I forget it, thanks for the links, I forwarded the first one to my brother, he's somewhat into minimal music lately. No luck using it to get hin...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    It was just a throw away idea because I thought gladiatorial games (or dressing them up as baby seals & tossing them to the Orcas) glorified violence too much Err, as already mentioned, apologies for the gore. I don't like...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Another article on the episode: https://tenser.typepad.com/tenser_said_the_tensor/2006/12/darmok.html For the context, I just realized a friend of mine using Leiden des Jungen Werther to show her behaviours were quite normal should have been somewhat alarming. We got better....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    BTW, I was somewhat reminded of Terry Pratchett when Heteromeles talked about "event", though I can't find the quote, so I might be mistaken again. "Eventually, Corporal Nobbs would take a bath, though that would mean quite an extension to...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    At the risk of derailing this thread even more... I have been thinking a lot about the Star Trek TNG episode Darmok lately, especially since much of my thinking includes me actively searching for similarities to past events or memories...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Err, in this case, make this "Left corner, Australian right-winger, right corner, half a dozen Indonesian salt water crocodiles illegally sneaking in across the border". And nah, what a waste of donor organs to be used up after the bloody...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    In other news, attack on 2 mosques in New Zealand. May I propose reintroducing gladatorial fights to get the idiots to keep it to themselves and leave the rest of the world alone? Left corner, Jihadi John the Beheader, right...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Actually, there is a German comedian that was elected into the EU parliament. He gave a talk about it at last Chaos Communication Congress. Sadly it seems there are no subtitles or even translation around, though I might ask hdsjulian...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Sorry, I usually type as I think and don't proofread, otherwise I'd be stuck all day... The thing with collaboration is it can introduce a new perspective into a series at times. Most collaborations not working out IMHO is another...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Err, coming back tp original theme of OGH, of really long series... I haven't delved into the Merchant Princes yet[1], but what got me into the Laundryverse, aside from the premise bringing together some of my interests, was that there...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Err, make "contamination" "decontamination". Sorry, my mistake....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    There is a term in sociology[1] called "annihilation", about not only destroying an individual but also the group he is belonging too, denying even collective memory. Guess that's what I'm aiming for in my revenge fantasies[2]. Like the Romans leaving...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Nah, only after some contamination. Killing them is not the point. I remember "1984" for a variety of reasons, but imagine the scene from the movie at 4:18 where Winston asks to be shot while his mind is still clean....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    #434 - Tell me that executing that number of high ranking Cons isn't a nice image though? May I repeat my point that hanging[1] is literally too good for them, and hemp might be in short supply after Brexit? Same...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    On a side note, as people might realize I'm coming out of my SAD, try to integrate at my new working place and train my, err, creativity/loosened associations/lateral thinking. If it gets too bad tell me....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Throw in some workfare, of the "no food without work, sorry if you can't work because of malnutrition" variety. Schröder implemented Hartz IV... Err, my cynical side is coming back, I already warned an left-alternativ guy at work I might...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    As a figure of speech, of course. Actually, thinking about the persons involved (Farage, Le Pen, Gerhard schröder, Gauland et al.) not just as a figure of speech. Of course, the death penalty is against ECHR, and it would be...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    The EU is like that ... all the alternatives are significantly worse. I agree, and I actually try to get this across quite often. Thing is, we need to change the system, but quite a few critics of the EU...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Hm, could get interesting. May I remind you both sides have nuclear weapons? ;) (Yes Minister being tied in to Public Choice and thus Thatcher et al. makes it somewhat problematic, but there is this little gem: Hacker : Well,...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Actually modern capitalism started out somewhat similar, with the Secularization of church property. There are quite a few economists looking favorable onto that one, we could cite them as support when going after the billionaires... ;)...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    though I would have thought that the realisation that every single claim made by brexit supporters - including the ones I swallowed - have shown to be lies - would almost guaranteed a "remain" vote. As already matterd, it doesn't...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    just to keep the series' going Not necessarily a bad thing. A text is a text is a text, and I somewhat subscribe to the notion of the Death of the Author. A few days ago I realized you could...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Of course, propioception breaking down at about the same time means that you will also feel present in every place of the universe, e.g. you will become like god. Rolling hills. The water flows. The flowers bloom. There is no...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    No, eternal in the this context would mean "timeless as in time not existing" - and no, I haven't the slightest idea what that would be like. Well, human time perception is complicated, but there are two things that come...
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    On a also somewhat tangential note, I have taken to compile a playlist of music I remember for a variety of reasons or encountered recently for use at work. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLns7jxlzZ5_kwLylXRaQqkWJw8ebxSjcf There is some overlap with songs in OGH's work, but...
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    Already thought about a nice place to lay it to rest? My sympathies......
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    Err, I thought "good" and typed "god". As people might note, I mistype quite often, so I guess it was no Freudian slip, though it's somewhat appropiate. Cross-contamination from the other thread, I knew about Freud even in high school....
  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    Actually the problem is humans have the idea of good and evil, if you walk around in nature you see ducks gangraping other ducks to death, wolves mauling starving wolves intruding on their territory etc. It's just our evolution as...
