Postmodern writing is almost entirely garbage. The linguistic trickery of writers like Jonathan Safran Foer and David Foster Wallace—piles of footnotes, frequent tone shifts, dialect writing, making the ending of your novel a fucking flipbook—is a mirage to disguise their limp prose and limper view of reality. Infinite Jest is a Calvinist anti-drug morality tale disguised […]

At best, some of these books were […]

If there’s one good thing about the Philippines, it’s that living there has forced me to diversify my game arsenal. In the U.S., I was mainly reliant on day game (with the occasional carousing in bars), but the Philippines almost requires you to do night, day and online game in roughly equal measures.
