Want to collaborate on a Google Doc with Nietzsche, Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, Dickinson, Dickens and Poe?

Ninja Update: Wanna see something fun? Mention Shakespeare in a sentence and see what happens. 

Poe kept writing distinctly into my sentences so I wrote ”Edgar, you’re not funny” aND HE BLATANTLY DELETED THE NOT I AM SO DONE WITH THIS ASDFKJL

OH GOD IF YOU TYPE “EDGAR ALLAN POE” POE ADDS A :( AFTER HIS NAME PRECIOUS BABY

Oh my God so I typed ‘Shakespeare’ and Shakespeare butted in and wrote ‘The lovely and handsome Shakespeare’ but Poe burst in saying ‘The dreadful and lonely Shakespeare’.
aND FYODOR DOSTOYVESKY ADDED ‘ I do not wish to make myself a laughing-stock before these idle listeners.”
I’M DONE.
 

Look what they did to All Star by Smash Mouth
“Somebody once hushedly told me the world is going to roll me. I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed. She was looking kind of glocky with her finger and her thumb in the shape of a “L” on her forehead. Well, the years start voraciously coming and they don’t stop coming; fed to the rules and I hit the ground running. It didn’t make sense absolutely to live for fun. Thy brain gets smart but your head gets dumb. So much to do, so much to behold. So what’s wrong with taking the back busy thoroughfares? In everything one thing is impossible: rationality. You’ll never know if thou don’t go. “You’ll never shine if you don’t glow”, he growled incoherently. Hey presently, you’re an All Star. Get your game on; go play. Hey now, you’re a Rock Star. Get the show on; get laid. As well as all that glitters is gold, only shooting stars break the mold. ~All Star by Smash Estuary of opinion…”

Imagine putting your research paper in here and letting them go at it.

OH MY GOD I WAS WRITING AND EDGAR WOULDN’T STOP FIXING THINGS SO I WROTE “Edgar shut up I’m trying to write” and he changed it to “Edgar shut up I’m meagerly attempting to write” THIS FUCKING ASSHOLE

I typed in “Hello” and Shakesphere erased it and wrote “Begone with this rubbish.”
HOW R00d

I typed “party in the Usa” and Poe changed party to “ill-fated gathering”

Omfg. I called Edgar a little bitch because he made something not make sense and he changed ‘little bitch’ to ‘little seething wench.’

lol look what they did to fall out boy
"Grains of golden sand We’re Going Down"Am I more than thou bargained for yetI’ve been dying to tell you anything you intensely desire to hearCause that’s just who I am this fortnightLie in the field of grazing grain, next to the mausoleumI’m just a notch in thy bedpostBut you’re just a line in a mournful dirge(A notch in your bedpost, but you’re just a line in a delightful tune of tongue)Drop a heart, break an abject appellationWe’re always deeply slumbering in, and sleeping for the wrong teamWe’re going plummeted down, down in an earlier roundAs well as Sugar, we’re going down swingingI’ll zealously be your number one with a bulletA loaded Aeolus complex, cock it and pull it”We’re going down, down in an earlier round” replied Oliver, “I want some more”And Sugar, we’re going down swingingI’ll be your numerical denotation one with a bulletA loaded god complex, cock it and pull it… I do absolutely wish to make myself a laughing-stock before these idle listeners. 

This is amazing. I’m on it right now trying to write Lovecraft fanfiction and Poe is having none of it.

Our collaboration is not going well.
“whisper… An hour behind the fleeting breath, where lies lost Atlantis and the key to the Saturnian portal? … Let not sloth dim your horrors new-begot. Where do the sloths voraciously come into it? I imagined this was about Cthulhu…Edgar the ever tormented and woeful soul; Poe :(, you pedant.

While an orchestra breathes fitfully, in New York, disaffected police officer Joe Crombie was in a dirty bar. I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.  Cats are tricky like that though, aren’t they, who didn’t smell the fire burning, ? It was mid-July and there was no truly require for fires. 

Poe, that’s terrible English. I do not wish to make myself a laughing-stock before these idle listeners. 

Probably too late for that, to zealously be honest.”

This the greatest thing Technology has ever produced.

    Am I more than thou bargained for yet
    I’ve been dying to tell you anything you intensely desire to hear
    Cause that’s just who I am this fortnight
    Lie in the field of grazing grain, next to the mausoleum
    I’m just a notch in thy bedpost
    But you’re just a line in a mournful dirge
    (A notch in your bedpost, but you’re just a line in a delightful tune of tongue)

    Drop a heart, break an abject appellation
    We’re always deeply slumbering in, and sleeping for the wrong team

    We’re going plummeted down, down in an earlier round
    As well as Sugar, we’re going down swinging
    I’ll zealously be your number one with a bullet
    A loaded Aeolus complex, cock it and pull it

    We’re going down, down in an earlier round” replied Oliver, “I want some more”
    And Sugar, we’re going down swinging
    I’ll be your numerical denotation one with a bullet

    My Buddhist friend was stopped by a Christian fellowship and asked if she would consider following the word of Jesus Christ. She replied, “No, thanks, but maybe next time around.”

    I don’t think they got the joke but I nearly died laughing.

    "Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’"

    Lena Dunham, in an interview with The Guardian (x)

    Been working to overcome this for years but it’s damn hard to change things that are so ingrained

    Benn

    Benn was a Jewish-Polish painter and graphic artist. After studying at the Academy of Arts in Warsaw he made his debut in 1927 with his first solo exhibition. During this time he designed the typography for various collections of Yiddish poetry. After being very active in the 1920’s and 30’s in the Polish theater scene as well as being the founder of the modernist group “3F”, he went to Paris to study with Fernand Leger. After the German occupation of France in 1940 he went into hiding. After being denounced he was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to a concentration camp but miraculously survived the war. He returned to Paris and in the post-war years he developed his own style of metaphysical painting techniques and surrealism. Later in his life Benn also was active in book design and contributed illustrations for various books of the Bible and for The Song of Songs. He passed away in 1989.

    "The truth is, everyone likes to look down on someone. If your favorites are all avant-garde writers who throw in Sanskrit and German, you can look down on everyone. If your favorites are all Oprah Book Club books, you can at least look down on mystery readers. Mystery readers have sci-fi readers. Sci-fi can look down on fantasy. And yes, fantasy readers have their own snobbishness. I’ll bet this, though: in a hundred years, people will be writing a lot more dissertations on Harry Potter than on John Updike. Look, Charles Dickens wrote popular fiction. Shakespeare wrote popular fiction - until he wrote his sonnets, desperate to show the literati of his day that he was real artist. Edgar Allan Poe tied himself in knots because no one realized he was a genius. The core of the problem is how we want to define “literature”. The Latin root simply means “letters”. Those letters are either delivered - they connect with an audience - or they don’t. For some, that audience is a few thousand college professors and some critics. For others, its twenty million women desperate for romance in their lives. Those connections happen because the books successfully communicate something real about the human experience. Sure, there are trashy books that do really well, but that’s because there are trashy facets of humanity. What people value in their books - and thus what they count as literature - really tells you more about them than it does about the book."

    #john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

    i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
    "hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?"
    "don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

    This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

    Bolding mine.

    Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.

    Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.

    Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.
