Unconventional styles · 7:21pm
I very recently had the realisation that my regular style makes it unusually difficult to write non-fiction in without sounding pretentious.
I've known this in some way for a long time, but only recently have I put that feeling down in words. I suppose, in a sense, that's why I've always admired greentext: it can do something I can't naturally without adopting an entirely different style, and I suppose it's for that reason that I refer to it as the pinnacle of human literary achievement. In some way, I suppose, Getting Laid is an excuse for this very sort of thing.
(In retrospect: I'd probably be a far superior ratings-whore and gotten a great deal more 'yo this guy's innovative and experimental's if I'd just published every single story as its own little vignette.)
Now, I've just read a great deal of tumblr posts (holla, the-vashta-nerada) and I have thus been struck with the literary bug; feel free to bear witness to me sounding American.
so I was chilling down reading some books with my ass on some books and some bitch-ass hoe goes down like 'it's not allowed okay get off' like some testy poor-ass motherfucker who don't speak English and he's powertripping like crayyy and I'm like 'kay whatevs' and bump dat ass right off that stack and he just walks the fuck away like he knows what's good, right, and I'm just talking to myself like 'serviettes hygiéniques cause you know what the fuck is a serviette that isn't hygienic like what
anyway then some other bitch be like 'yo' and I be like 'holla' and she be like 'you know that shit ain't right right' but not really and I'm like 'yeah so I got my ass off that what you want' but not really and I look around and see that bitch-ass motherfucker hiding behind this lady crying his bitch ass off like I called him the bitch he is and this bitch be like 'what you said' but yeah really and I be like 'I said 'kay'' and bitch be like 'yeah but what did you say' and I be like 'I said kay' and she was like 'after that' and I'm like 'I was speaking French cause I'm reading French and I hold that shit up and title-point middle-of-the-sentence dynamic fluid movement like whoa and bitches be like 'whoa' and they peaced the fuck out like they know sonic the elegant french hedgehog ain't nothing to fuck with
and I went home and told my story and my mother said if I acted like that in another country I'd get raped
and that's why I'm racist and hate poor people
And let's not forget the hash tags: #sick burn #stupid poor people #I have more money than you #yolo #swag #gotta go fast #l'élégance du hérisson
