I was reading Cixin Liu’s books and not only do I like them, but they also reminded me of the different ”waves” of SF/Fantasy reading I’ve had in my life.
Come to think of it, I have a strong impression of a few things twenty years ago but I can’t recall a lot of details.
My biggest regret is my writing
shit stuff down … I feel like I lost a couple of decades of my life, just because I didn’t have a written record, and — and I don’t know how it’s like for most people, but — all I feel I have are these messy, jumbled up and often self-contradictory memories!
Anyway, that was a digression … although, was it, really? I didn’t have a theme when I started writing this, and I … just have never understood why we can’t have a better online writing format than a blog.
It’s not like I want to pick a topic and pick a theme and then decide to write something pertinent or something likable.
It should just be … a graph, you know? A linked collection which doesn’t need to be force-fed into this paragraph structure along with a category and a tag… I’m not writing an essay here!
Okay, this whole thing went in a direction I didn’t really plan on it going, but … I will get back to what I started with, eventually.
Edit: this sounds quite incoherent, but I do agree with it, so … will leave it up
Edit: also, I like that the random “permalink” for this post when it didn’t have a title was the string “1984”
Edit: decided to add some title at the end anyway:
