Playboy - Lit and TitsPlayboy - Lit and Tits9 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
When I was in middle school, my brother got busted with possession of pornography in our home. I found out it was something called Playboy, and I asked my mom "What's so bad about it?" to which she replied: "It's a dirty magazine, Haley. Not appropriate for young ladies and boys your brother's age," (he was in high school by then). Years later, when I was in high school and discovered my own college boyfriend had a stash, I had to discover what all the huff and smut was about: and I found it purely fascinating. I'm now 21 years old, and I read Playboy for the articles.

On Writing To be a good writer, you have to be a Man. Not just a man, but a Man. I envy the hell out of chicks that decide to write mainstream fiction. Rehash a few awkward or painful teenage memories, chuck your crystallized adolescence into the defroster and pawn it off to Oprah, ba-da-bing, youre a millionaire. Not with guys. Oprah doesnt have your back if youre swingin around a dick. Did you see what she did to James Frey? Jesus. That should teach him to potentially exaggerate any fragment of a story.On Writing6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

It's been about six or so hours, but what is time? Time is simply a complex measurement of space, measured by hands, measuring my life as gravity grips my skin and pulls. My skin succumbs, settling and dripping like wax...
I hear the cackling and jabber of a madman and as soon as it's heard, the vibrations begin twisting and sauntering in my direction; an enticing harmonious melody made especially for me. My name.
I puff... exhale. Entranced by the smoke, I was startled when my eyes met with a wicked Cheshire grin seemingly floating below two huge, black ovals. "I am the eggman", he repeated. "Yes?"
"We are the eggmen", I hear myself say.

Sweet Jesus, I thought, there's no fire. We'll all freeze up and die! "Bring another candle!" I screeched at the barmaid desperately, hoping that she had not yet succumbed to the bitter frost.
Instead of the candles she delivered wine lists and menus as if forcing us to pay for a chemical fire in our bellies would scare away the dark cold of the air. I thought it best to test her theory. "Beer! I must have a beer!" I shouted at the cheap, fire-hording whorefaces running the bar.
My camera assist ordered something remarkably similar to pinesol in its odour. It must have had something to do with his Island upbringing. Crazy bastard. "I'm sure
Faking it I feel like Im faking it, the whole writing thing. Somehow, it just doesnt seem romantic enough. I feel like I should be staring into the cold face of some ancient, rickety typewriter with a glass of whiskey in one hand and a half-burnt cigarette in the other, not sitting in front of some stark-white, sterile word processor on the same computer I use to talk to everyone I know, steal music, and look at porn. It feels like blasphemy, like Im butchering the art.Faking it6 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

you are all presumably here to honour the memory of the recently deceased dr hunter s. thompson, and i'd like to say a few words before we get ridiculously hammered.
last sunday, thompson put a loaded .45 calibre handgun in his mouth and blew his brains out. he was 67 years old. i can't say the suicide surprised me terribly; i always kinda figured he'd die in an extremely violent way, whether from suicide, murder, OD or some car accident. what surprises me is that he lived this long in the first place; he himself mentioned that he didn't know how he made it through through the 70s. thompson existed in a self-contained universe of mind-boggli

To be played with anywhere between one and 8 billion people.
Divide the players into two lines facing each other, making sure each player has either a magazine, television, or a computer in plain view. If the game is to be played alone, use a mirror to simulate the other players.
Next, lay one to seven empty shot glasses and three red cups in between the two lines of players. Exact number of cups and glasses can be changed, if necessary. Leave one or more red cups in the center of the playing area.
Once properly positioned, have each player turn and face the media outlet in front of them, preferably set to some form of po

We're All Crazy HereI have a little tale to tell you all, my lovely little ones. A tiny tale of psychosis and terror-ific amusement. A tale where there is no beginning, only darkness brought to light and then pitched back to the dark twilight again. A tale which has no end, only a fading away with a kind of "oh." feeling. A tale with no moral and no moral compass and no explanation other than it's all just a very terrible dream. So scooch closer children, otherwise you might not hear me. You might just miss me.We're All Crazy Here4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

I look. Someone new. Im growing weary of this. Its another nurse, not Nurse Nancy, and she is escorting me down a dimly-lit hallway. The air tastes of night, I can smell the darkness. I dont see windows. Just hanging light fixtures.
The nurse looks like an old suitcase, some kind of iguana in a linen white uniform with an ink-smudged tag that reads Nurse Carrie. For an instant, I see pigs blood splash and fade away. When Nurse Carrie looks at me, I feel a deep horror an

I had to spend two days in utter shock at the statement I read in the paper that the Doctor, who I have come to love through his many articles and sheer violent attacks with the beautiful words as weapons upon which he released the greatest fiery, that I couldn't even comprehend the words 'no longer with us'. As a fan of his work and a greater fan for all those who sit down to write the pieces of crap that many reporters and new papers write to soothe the masses, I decided to go headlong into a piece about a writer instead of the story. I believe, that the good Doctor would want at least one of his fans to come out and at least appear to unde

If I were to create a cult, these would be my high holy days. As it is, with my hatred of religion, they're nothing but personal holidays now. On these days, I will take off school or work. I will turn off my cellphone and put away my computer. I will unplug my cable and take the batteries out of my radio, and I will be dead to the outside world.
These days, to you, may seem to have no meaning. I will put them in perspective, in my cryptic way, and you might understand.
On May 12th, I will read Brain Droppings. I will listen to Life is Worth Losing.
On July 18th, I will watch Fear and Loathing in Las Ve

Chapter 95-Bat Country
For about 30 minutes, the battallion rushed along the barren landscape of Aduro uninterrupted. The entire area was devoid of any life; no towns, no people, not even plants were visible over the parched earth. From the main ship, Ket, Milio, and system continued to stare out of the window with a hopeful expression on their faces. After a few moments, Lyla asked, "You guys see anything?"
"Negative." System replied. "Not a single bit of life at all."
Baril couldn't help but shudder, and said, "This place is creeping me out.....we haven't even found any sign of Aduro either."
At this, Vadiro replied, "Ad
