    Batarde
    Batarde- You are bold and forward, but some people
    consider you a bit twisted.

    • Re: hee hee - fun

      Batarde is a hand I've tried and tried and tried to master- but it always winds up looking like shit.
      It is to weep.
  • heh. a quiz which doesn't annoy me. neat!

    Insular Majuscule
    Insular Majuscule- You are spiritual and well
    rounded. People look to you for advice, but
    sometimes find you difficult to understand.

    by the way...just finished dhalgren yesterday. now i have an urge to hunt down that guy whose conversation with me about delany re-started my interest in the book...and ask him to tell me, please, why it was so important. if you have answers in the meantime, i'd be glad to listen. that was a book whose quality i find myself entirely unable to pinpoint.
    • by the way...just finished dhalgren yesterday.
      ...speaking of insular, well-rounded, and difficult to understand. ;)
    • ditto the result.

      and now I'm all interested -- do tell a semi-literate fellow journaler, what's dhalgren?
      • samuel r. delany's richly textured, potentially offensive, highly dated, multisexually explicit, poetically dense, racially charged, semi-opaque moebius strip of a novel (though i came to doubt, at times, that "novel" actually described the format i was reading) about a city "at the edge of time." if you love delany, it's worth a shot, i'd say. if you don't already love delany, i'd recommend starting with some of his most acclaimed short fiction, stuff like stars in my pocket like grains of sand or time considered as a helix of semi-precious stones, say. or novels like triton or babel-17.
