Pedro Lemebel: el amargo, relamido y brillante frenes� Pedro Lemebel es un fenómeno de la literatura latinoamericana de este tiempo. Uso el término fenómeno en su doble acepción: es un escritor original y un prosista notable y, para sus lectores, es un freak, alguien que llama la atención desde el aspecto y rechaza la normalización ofrecida. Un escritor y un freak, indisolublemente unidos, los que están fuera, en la desolación y la energía de los qué sólo se integran a su modo, en los márgenes que ya no tienen el peso arrasador de antaño. (Si algo, la obra de Lemebel es un rechazo del determinismo homófobo). A Lemebel le ponen sitio las miradas (las lecturas) de la admiración, el morbo, el regocijo de "los turistas de lo inconveniente", la extrañeza, la solidaridad, la normalidad de los que están al tanto de la globalización cultural, ésa que para los gays se inició dramáticamente con los juicios de Osear Wilde en 1895 y jubilosa y organizativamente con la revuelta de Stonewall en 1969.

25 Books That Define Cool Let’s abandon the childish notion that reading isn’t cool. We’re grown men here and reading happens to be one of the many ways we enjoy spending a bit of our free time. Of course, sitting down with just any book doesn’t always make for a great experience. 1. This list could easily include just about everything Papa Hemingway wrote. 2. Written over 2,500 years ago, The Art of War is still as important today as it was for warriors back then. 3. Honestly, you could put just about every book from the good doctor on this list – Hell’s Angels and The Rum Diary come to mind – but if you had to pick one, you have to go with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and all its drug-fueled insanity. 4. There have been many war books released in the last few years and many are very, very good, some even make a strong antiwar case without just putting the idea out there (see: Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), but none of these can do what Slaughterhouse-Five did. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

Barnboksdilemmat. Vuxna bryr sig mest om sin egen barndom Du sväljer klumpen i halsen, inte gråta nu, när du ivrigt räcker över boken. ”Ska jag läsa lite för dig kanske?” Du slår upp ”Aja baja, Alfons Åberg” och redan på första sidan väller minnena över dig. Här ligger du, med ett barn mot din axel, och läser samma bok som du själv lyssnade till när du var lika gammal! Åh, det känns så rätt. Du läser med inlevelse: ”Rör inte sågen, Alfons.” Satan, vad bra det är. Eller? De flesta inser nog att det effek­tivaste sättet att få barn att läsa knappast är att trycka ner sin egen barndom i deras halsar, ändå är det så förtvivlat svårt att låta bli. ”Det är extremt svårt att slå igenom brett med något nytt inom just bilderbokssegmentet. Men i jämförelse med den krisande vuxenlitteraturen är det inte särskilt synd om dagens barn- och ungdomsboksförfattare. Och så har vi biblioteken. Ändå är barnboksförfattare förbluffande osynliga i media. För de flesta är helt enkelt mer intresserade av sin egen barndom än av sina barns.

Everything You Need to Know to Rebuild Civilization from Scratch "Everything You Need to Know to Rebuild Civilization from Scratch" Well maybe some of us don't wanna? I mean if this postapocolypse happened because of some natural disaster beyond our control, fine, I'll roll up my sleeves and do my part. But if the end times are due to our own stupidity and utter failure in wisdom, I'm not sure I wanna stand in the way of evolution, ya know? Maybe the only way to have true civilization is to rebuild it out of the ashes of the one we trashed first. Well, maybe— But the danger I see with that is that it can be used to justify something like Pol Pot's "year zero" or Robespierre's Reign of Terror: I'm all for reform and change and progress.

Being a fan of sci-fi, and wanting to expand my own reading list, I thought it would be helpful to tally the results and preserve them here for future reference.
