It tasted "a bit dry" due to the lack of fat. The future of food?

Mmmmm. Meat.

I think we live in times scarred by smitten ideologies, feigned values, fake prophets and endorsed idiocy where music carved out of passion and purpose today is very relevant and needed.

Interzone / New Layout
« on: August 17, 2012, 05:56:18 PM »
Is it just me or is there a new layout? I think I like it, although the amount of white is hard on the eyes, and the nesting of quotes sucks.

English is not my first language. I would like to be able to write like Prozak, Born for Banning, Conservationist, etc. What can I do and what should I read?

Please, don't learn to write like Conservationist. Prozak, on the other hand.

I thought they're all alter-egos. Thanks for the recommendation

Interzone / Intellectually stimulating websites

I feel stupider by the day in my corporate job. Any suggested intellectually stimulating websites I can use to keep me from losing my mind? The viewpoints in the Zine section of this site, together with Amerika.org etc. are one lot. Others?

Interzone / Re: Comic Books

I don't know whether Asterix books - if they are comics in the traditional sense- (originally in French) are known of at all in the USA...but they are at the forefront in my part of the world (Asia) and in Europe as well (English translations). I find their use of the English language is at an exceptionally high level (supposedly the French originals are even better), while the ability to weave humour around historical events is also very good. Worth checking out:
