#davidfosterwallace - a constant companion for likely the next year at least, as I begin again to read #infinitejest & realize I'm still a beginner in English... #greatestnovel

For all my suicidal homies, yall know who you are ;) #dfw #davidfosterwallace #infinitejest #somuchlove #holla

how it feels to finish #infinitejest 💔💫

Fy considers which mega-novel to tackle next. #tinyeunice #theinstructions #infinitejest #againsttheday

The best way, (IMHO anyway) to read IJ is via an electronic device where the notes are hyperlinked and the dictionary is a click away. ✨

Happy 55th, DFW!

Day 87: Lists of things that are boring.

Went for dinner with my friend who's visiting from England and we both agreed that our single lives are boooooring.

She says dating in London is hard because British dudes are too reserved to hit on you to your face and they're just sitting at the bar messaging girls on Tinder. And I'm in the middle of this 180-day journey and it's past the "being single is fun and empowering!" phase and into the "holding steady while doing tough personal work" phase.

I keep flip-flopping how I feel about what life will be like after the 180 days. Some days I feel like single life is so much easier and I should just be single forever. And some days, like right now, I feel like as soon as this is over, I'm going to start filling my time and my mind with men again. Life's just more FUN with dating in it. And I know I'm supposed to be replacing man fun with hobby fun, but it's so hard to find hobby fun (especially when you don't try) and it's so easy to find man fun (especially if most of it is in your head anyway).

But I met a suuuuuper hot dude this morning while hanging out at the beach with my kid's former babysitter. He was all shirtless and ripped and tattooed and nice to his kids, and after he was done taking to the babysitter, I was like, "WHO was that???"

She said, "Just some dude who cheated on his wife with all of my friends. I wouldn't recommend him as boyfriend material."

And I was like, "I'm not sure that's what I want him for..."

But now I'm thinking, if I do just go back to chasing men like that guy, specifically that guy, and I want to successfully JUST sleep with him and NOT get all crazy and make him into my next imaginary husband, I need something else to fill my time and mind while I'm casually sleeping with him on the side. And so I can seem busy and interesting, like I don't even WANT to husband him, anyway (which will make him want to wife me MORE, right???).

So it all comes back to the fact that I DO need to find a dang hobby, whether I do it now and it's for me or later and it's to keep my mind partially occupied while sleeping with non-boyfriend-worthy dudes.

This may be the last book I ever start. #1000pages #infinitejest #davidfosterwallace

„Auf der Ebene der Objekte und einer projektiven kindlichen Omnipotenz, die dich in Bezug auf deine Gedanken und die Reaktionen von Objekten auf deine narzisstischen Wünsche in einer magischen Gedankenwelt leben lässt, präsentiert sich die Kontraphobie als die Wahnvorstellung einer bestimmten Instanz oder Kraft, die verdrängte traumatische Erlebnisse kompensiert, die mit fehlender Kontrolle zu tun hatten.“

From page 45: Orin’s special conscious horror, besides heights and the early morning, is roaches. There’d been parts of metro Boston near the Bay he’d refused to go to, as a child. Roaches give him the howling fantods. The parishes around N.O. had been having a spate or outbreak of a certain Latin-origin breed of sinister tropical flying roaches, that were small and timid but could fucking fly, and that kept being found swarming on New Orleans infants, at night, in their cribs, especially infants in like tenements or squalor, and that reportedly fed on the mucus in the babies’ eyes, some special sort of optical-mucus—the stuff of fucking nightmares, mobile flying roaches that wanted to get at your eyes, as an infant—an were reportedly blinding them…

This specific fragment, I think, is the first where Wallace’s trademark howling fantods appears in the novel. I’d originally wished to call this blog The Howling Fantods, but the username had already been taken and…

The #InfiniteJest (my denim vest) has its place of honor in my new place next to my #GusFrerotte jersey I got when I was 9 or 10 that still fits me (and that I obviously still wear because I mean, it's Gus Frerotte).

Ho appena rivisto The end of the tour, cronaca di un'intervista concessa a Rolling Stone da David Foster Wallace... Che dire, se non leggere Infinite jest? #DavidFosterWallace #InfiniteJest #TheEndofthetour #instamovie #movie #instamovies #movies #instaquote #instaquotes #quoteoftheday #quotesoftheday #quote #quotes

Sunday afternoon old lady vibes... A friend told me that I need some David Foster Wallace in my life, haven't read a 1,000 page book since "Gone With The Wind" back in high school. This may take a while or till my public library needs it back... What are you reading? 🤓 #sundayvibes #lazysundays #oldladyvibes #infinitejest #davidfosterwallace #currentlyreading #recovery #sobersundays

Infinite jest. Sprofondare nel mondo ossessivo delirante e lirico della dipendenza. Un romanzo sconfinato e labirintico, una scrittura bella da star male.

From page 44: The day before they left—so like five days ago— Orin was out by himself in the Jacuzzi by the pool late in the day, caring for the leg, sitting in the radiant heat and bloody late-day light with the leg in the Jacuzzi, absently squeezing the tennis ball he still absently squeezes out of habit. Watching the Jacuzzi funner and bubble and foam around the leg. And out of nowhere a bird had all of a sudden fallen into the Jacuzzi. With a flat matter-of-fact plop. Out of nowhere. Out of the wide empty sky. Nothing overhung the Jacuzzi but sky. The bird seemed to have a coronary or something in flight and died and fallen out of the empty sky and landed dead in the Jacuzzi, right by the leg.

What I read today. If you dont know DFW do. Listen to "This is Water" on Youtube. Form a reading group and try Infintejest or something this man wrote. Its worth the effort. #davidfosterwallace #booksworthreading #books #suicide #depression #mentalhealthawareness #literarygenius #bookclub #reading #bookstolove #infinitejest #bookclub

I have opinions. Some of them are interesting. I could, if you'd let me, talk and talk. Let's talk about anything. #infinitejest #chilenos
