I'm sure people like to eat my food more than discuss infinite jest with you though

infinite jest is a meme because dudes who think they are deep and intellectual but are not recommend it like a talisman to girls. it’s a reference most people understand. you thought it was a romance novel. haven’t you spoken here yourself about david foster wallace’s essays and nonfiction? not a very smart chap.
I refer you back to my post in d&st - you're an unpleasant individual who feels an inordinate need to prop up his self-image by insulting whoever you can and by obsessively pursuing niche interests. The latter is fine. Vice versa you'd be at a complete loss in my field and in my hobbies. I don't hold it against you that you're not built for contact sports. Or that your idea of fine dining is a linguine, red wine and poundshop cheesecake. That's a little vulgar really.

2 books a year? jesus christ. no wonder you jumped on mine and jay's passing comment with all the fury of an uncaged eagle after an inter-state flight. you were really keen to get in your condescending recommendation for that book you read for a course one time!!! lmao 'stick to publishing' says the guy who reads 2 books a year and yet somehow considers himself well-read. i have literally read more books than you on the breakup of yugoslavia. what a derpsicle.

you seem really rather caught up on an average pair of shoes. that really made an impression on you, didn’t it?
you really are just a normie. it’s not my problem.
i could take fashion advice from a lot of members on this board, but you are very very near the bottom.
just stop. we all know what you look like. christ alive.
and totally, totally accurate
a lot of older ppl do the emoji thing. he has kids too so it makes sense. prolly does it for fun with them etc. i don't think it's weird, we are living in different times. i got 50+ year old aunts and shit using snapchat and IG.

btw is anyone here into fasting? i did it a few times over the past couple years and thinking about doing it a little more regularly like maybe a 2 day fast once a month. not really for weight loss but just to sort of cleanse myself. there's a lot of benefits to fasting.
they say even a 16 hour fast is ok but real benefits start at like the 48 hour mark. i didn't even drink black coffee the times i did it, just only water for 48 hours. it's kinda tough but i did notice better digestion afterwards and feeling a lot more clear headed etc.
My experience is that the creative force that flows through me when making music, writing poetry, drawing, etc. is the same force which flows while I cook. I wouldn’t say eating food is some kind of artistic experience though. I cook to heal myself and others and that makes the stakes high very often. Some cooks approach it like an engineering project, but some approach it intuitively. It’s a full immersion of the senses, I can hear, smell, taste or see when something needs attention on the stove or w/e. I’m also wielding an extremely sharp knife made in the same way as a samurai sword. This brings me fully into the present moment and in the end I have something wonderful to show for it that makes people feel good. Some have said that cooking is the highest art because it determines the eater’s destiny. That said I don’t feel like an artist being a cook, it more like alchemy- somewhere between a science and magic.

art expresses something higher, it gives you pause to think, it raises spiritual, metaphysical, theological questions. art has an aesthetics, an ethics. it helps us navigate questions about meaning in life, about social relations, how to live our lives as individuals and within a community. it expresses the human lot here on earth. do you get that when you're baking cinnamon rolls or beef pho?
i appreciate it takes skill, involves tradition, and is a refined experience for the senses. but art is not about glittery and fine things being put before your sensorium. why can't cooking just be a good pursuit and a difficult craft without it needing to be 'alchemy'?
lol fuck me i am literally doneSome have said that cooking is the highest art because it determines the eater’s destiny.
i say it's the lowest art because it provides bare necessities for biological existence and all ends up as brown shit. how about that? the 'eater's destiny' determined by a meal? what, you mean the part where 6 hours later they have to go to the john and squeeze out a loaf?

i actually cannot even be bothered. right on duuuuude.
I don’t really feel like getting deep into my personal life to explain what I’m talking about on a public forum, but if you want to talk privately about it that’s fine. But I’ll say I was born with a medical condition which most likely would have made me dead by now otherwise.
