my coworkers have gotta be getting pretty pissed at this point. My phone won't stop Yo'ing. Whatever, fuck them.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

Orson Scott Card is apparently hugely anti-gay. I still love his Alvin Maker books, but that's because the books mean something to me and Mr. Card does not. I likely won't read the Ender's Game series or anything, though.
When do you disregard an artists?
Should society as a whole (whatever that means) disregard an artists for any reason? When and how?
There seems to be some relationship between the quality of the work VS the level of horror perpetrated by the person, as perceived by the public.
In more rational persuits facts are laid down very clearly and the personal acts outside of those persuits don't really have any bearing on those facts. It doesn't matter if Al Gore is an asshole or greedy or whatever as long as the facts he presents about the climate are true. The one doesn''t wash the hand of the other.
Is that true of art? More to the point, does it matter?
Art has an affect on society, our dreams lead us to very real places. Which is not to say that because Micheal Jackson's music creates incidences of sexual abuse. But does it perpetuate the culture which allows for more sexual abuse?
You still have a copyright notice on the page. Thanks for the link
I need more pages for things. I'm reading through what I can find on scribd right now, but recommendations on quotables and short essays would be tremendously helpful. I can only use things that are kopyleft or written by folks here I can ask for permissions.
