Loved the history of SF from shoreman. Good stuff. Also that syeknom fit is one of my favourite things.

Pale Fire is awesome. How did Nabokov intend it to be read? I read the poem, then took the footnotes in order... I feel like if you followed Kinbote's directions when he says stuff like "See line 212" then the ending/twist would've been given away pretty early. When I reread it I'll probably take it that way though to see what happens.
I finish a book every week or two. People itt are making me think I should start reading on public transport. Finished Laurence Sterne's A Sentimental Journey (and other writings). A Sentimental Journey had all the sillyness and beauty that I love about Sterne. It was very short though. The other writings [sermons, a heartsick journal, some other stuff] weren't great on their own but I liked them because they gave insight into an author I'm loving. Gonna start Nabokov's...
I got a ton of that out of Anna Karanina too. Tolstoy puts plausible feelings into simple language like no other.
Yeah I tend to just buy cool shit then afterwards worry about styling it with stuff that looks coherent. I trust in my taste to be consistent enough that stuff I want to buy will go with at least some stuff I already own. This isn't always the case and I own stuff that is really lovely but I hardly ever wear, or always wear with the same couple things, but overall it works.
holy wow those patchwork coats
I was thinking if anything it should a couple inches longer. Looks great imo
dat slouch
If the white stitching were black those chukkas would be way cool for wearing with wacky baggy stuff.
