What are /fa/'s favorite books?

I encourage Fashion related but any books are fine


No better way to flex your outfit by sitting in a populated area reading a book
>>
Reading in populated areas is a good way to pic up Art Hoes. Art Hoes are dumb but lots of them enjoy reading.

A gal will feel drenched in attention and importance if you interrupt your reading to look up at her and say hello

Don't bother. If you're an actually intelligent person you'll get bored after the first few pages. It's cushy bourgeois shite that appeals to sycophantic losers who listen to NPR and actually drove out to New York to attend "He will not divide us".

If you want an actually good book that covers a similar subject matter, read Naked Lunch

This is very true, fuck his talks. Fuck some of his books too, like Lenin 2017 which is a re-write of his old one.

Also while How to Read Lacan and Sublime Object are very different (former going more into psychoanalysis) they use so many of the same jokes and anecdotes it's like a constant deja vu.

Don't watch his lectures, watch his interviews and read his books on contemporary issues (Violence) and history (In Defense of Lost Causes) and maybe one on his theory of ideology (Sublime Object).

Otranto is humor to a much greater extent than people generally seem to realize, Uncle Silas is really more of a mystery or even detective story, The Monk is plain bad.

Vathek on the other hand is about an absolute ruler who does all kinds of degenerate but aesthetic shit for even more power and then [SPOILERS], and it was written by a guy who was if possible even crazier (read up on Beckford, fucking unbelievable).

without posting a pic of muh stack, muh favorites or muh bookcases i'd say reading any book is fine

even if its a girl on the train or dan brown's new book. any book thats decent or better is worth the read and in a sense /fa/. especially classic literature has good character development that we classify "romantic" since the romantic period basically. this sense of "romance" is a very similar (if not the same) type of emotion we attach to our """personal style""" or """good fashion""". even if we dont associate ourself with the main character (think steppenwolf, the double, etc) we still understand the character because the writer can explain his/her situation so well.

non-fiction like philosophical pleads or psychological essays are also "effay" in a sense, because we associate them with our idea of educated people, something seen as "effay" in modern culture (movies and modern literature have been a great influence on this). an exception to this is controversial topics like communism or "disproven philosophical theories" as showcased in this thread
id say any form of reading is effay. even reading a communist book as a 'hardcore liberal' is okay, because why would expanding your knowlegde be a bad thing? dont assume someones intention (and thus personality) based on the book they read. the same goes for books like infinite jest, on which people argue about the amount of praise it deserves. desu quality of art is party subjective and besides that, u can still read a book thats not "the best". you dont cook the best food everyday and you dont wear your best fit everyday.
a few exception to "all reading is effay" are
>literal whos that make a book to get money, think celebs, athletes, youtubers, biographies of actors/tv personalities etc
>cookbooks (btw check 101cookbooks for good shit)
>comics, also anime is for manchildren

i've already been to hamburg, though only for half a day because it was on a layover. i'll be sure to visit again! how's the techno scene there? i'm very much into berlin-esque dark industrial techno, does hamburg also have places like about:blank, tresor and berghain?

heart of darkness

actually idk if its my favorite book, but it looks the coolest, nicest cover, and whenever i see it on my desk i want to pick it up and read it.
>>
>>13052327
this is actually probably my favorite book, probably not effay tho.

I'm a big fan of reading about war, and the mindset of someone in war or leading it, being in all of this chaos and trying to cut through the fog and understand what's going on, what the adversary must be thinking, what his plans must be and managing a fight while every single person participating is rapidly shifting from being confident and excited that they're winning, to horror that you may be overrun and killed, constantly evaluating the situation while being mostly unsure of your sides strength vs the enemy as the fight progresses and you're trying to fight the panic etc.

>golden Pudel, übel und gefährlich
Pudel is nice, I've actually seen a good techno act there, but übel und gefährlich strongly depends on the floor. Ballsaal can be very crowded at bigger shows and there are annoying stairs in the room, but I haven't seen a bad show in the Turmzimmer so far.

>>13053486
not a huge fan of Traumprinz, I don't like the lyrics, but I enjoy the other three after the first hearing. I've expected something to happen after the build up at the end of the Vril song. I really liked the Blazej Malinowski and the Rodhad tracks, I'd actually listen to this on a ride home on the weekend. Haven't finished the Prince of Denmark album for obvious reasons, but I've skipped through the album and haven't found any parts that I've disliked, but I don't see myself listen to it for 3 hours.

For you guys wondering who this, this is "loli-chan" who used to post on b when she was 13 for attention from old men.

You can also find her on chaturbate under the name: mz_understood

Her family fled Cuba under the Communists and was offered a home in the USA.

Yet this girl preaches communism even though she is only alive and makes money through the current system. She's the perfect example of the rich kid (her father was a lawyer) and she's in her mid 20's and has never worked a job. She tried to be a waitress one time and lasted about 4 hours.

That's what these modern day commies/antifa are. Privileged fool.
>>
>>13053605
>she is only alive
Because they totally killed everyone in cuba
>>
>>13053612
No but they locked up and did kill some families. Her family had to flee because her Father was anti-communist.

Once he got to America he trained a a lawyer, became rich under the system and then had his daughter, this girl who grew up rich and privileged.

She is also a rabid SJW, feminist, black lives matter advocate and so on.

She is often on page 20 on the cam sites and gets no more than 10 viewers lol.

>No but they locked up and did kill some families
They deserved it tho
>>
>>13053627
Well with that attitude, you are welcome to this girl. You are no doubt another privileged American like her. The thing is, you probably don't know any better.

With her situation, it's different though. She supports a system that was going to murder her family. Her Dad passed away last year and never got over the heartbreak and disappointment in his daughter who has never had a job and lived in the families guesthouse.

>any bands/artist you'd recommend for techno starters?
sure. techno is actually a fairly diverse genre, there are lots of different styles. here are some acid techno tracks that I think are pretty accessible:

desu the way I got into techno was listening to boiler room sets. that and actually going to quality techno parties will be the best. I recommend checking out these sets, skip around and see if any parts catch your attention:

nice, thanks! I watch people of boiler room every now and then and the boiler room merzbow set is really entertaining. I don't have the time to listen to every track in full length now, but I'll give a short resume of my first impressions!

Regal and Boston 168 - Terror Acid: there's little bit too much going on for my taste. I see the appeal and it's danceable, but it's not mine, but I've heard the Regal song till the end.

smitten song was pretty good, I liked the break at the 1:22 mark, the bass going down at minute 3 was nice too. Still many things going on at the same time and a bit too fast.

Boston 168 - Oblivion: nice atmosphere, the BPM are good too, not as fast as the other tracks. I'd hear music like this on a regular basis, my favorite one of the first group, nice cover art too.

Cryptik, interesting song, not sure wether this "pong" sound is polyrhythmic or just thrown in at random times. Buildup and atmosphere is great, I love the 808(?) rhythm and the synth melody that starts at 6:30. Again, I'm a fan of the cover. Favorite one of this group.

SHDW & Obscure Shape: Songtitel is edgy, I like that. I don't know why, but I'm not feeling this one.

I Hate Models: too many changes in the drum line beginning, but I like track after the 2:30 mark. In a club I'd love the track, but I don't think that I'd be in the right mood to listen to it in my spare time.

Amelie Lens, I like the vocal sample, it's used a bit often though. Another song that I'd like in a club, but wouldn't need on my ipod.

Boiler Room SNTS: started at the 5 min mark, really remembers me of a set that I've heard at a club before, great part, listened till minute 9, then I've started skipping around, nice set, might listen at home.

Rrose: I like the experimental approach, but the music itself annoys me.The guy at 36:46 is great though.

Len Faki: I can't make up my mind on this one. I guess it's the "good in a club" category.

Oblivion and Radiance Figure were my favorites!

it's nice to hear new people's thoughts to techno in detail like this, I found what you wrote engaging. I would recommend when you have more free time give the tracks/sets more of a complete listen. because as you know with blackmetal/shoegaze, the build up is quite slow but is important to get the full atmosphere of the track.
>SHDW & Obscure Shape: Songtitel is edgy
what does it mean in English? I don't know German
>Oblivion and Radiance Figure were my favorites!
here are some similar tracks in regards to bpm / overall style and atmosphere that you may enjoy. happy listening!
