I hope nerdfighteria can help wherever needed.



Thread time!

As many of you probably know already, the literary world suffered a huge loss yesterday, in the form of J.D. Salinger, the author of "Catcher in the Rye" among other titles. I won't say much on the subject, except that he without a doubt inspired many people, and for that I say, thank you. RIP.



On a more pleasant note, the Blurbing Book Club is technically still reading "Speak" by Laurie Halse Anderson for the… Continue

RIP JD Salinger



In which John reads from the J. D. Salinger novel The Catcher in the Rye in tribute to Salinger, who died yesterday at the age of 91. Having done so, John now immediately returns to paternity leave. Like all novelists who write about teenagers, he owes an immense debt to Salinger--not only because of Holden Caulfield but also because of the hauntingly beautiful portraits of the Glass family.



Thank you all for your kind wishes for young Henry, who is made of… Continue

Hitler and Magneto

So I'm writing a paper for submission in a philosophy magazine for my school, about the implications of Hell. To put it shortly, I'm arguing that If there is a God and afterlife, there can be no Hell. Or if there is a hell, it would have to be totally different than the fire and brimstone of normal Hell. I like the hell depicted by the film Wristcutters: A Love Story personally. Anyways, I started talking about the polarizations of human characteristics in popular culture, especially in… Continue
