Wait a minute…I watched the whole first season and was super impressed by the ending. But then, I stumbled some crap they call a second season of Black Butler (more like terrible fan fiction to me), only then to hear rumors of a 3rd season which has yet to be released and that I cannot access??? How can they even ATTEMPT to redeem the treacherous works of season 2??? They should’ve just left season 1 as is and let Sebastian eat Ciel’s soul! UGHHHHH, THAT ENDING MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE
Same anon from before. All I have to say tonight is that when Mr. Hitchens died, I was the only one whom was bummed out (for the right reasons) and knew that quantum mechanics had nothing to do with palm readings. What up with that?
In all my years of living, I’ve realized that people just don’t get it sometimes. :(
(The same anon from earlier) Well, I'm a science nerd but I do meander in Philosophy and Anime. What are your thoughts on Daniel Dennett and Christopher Hitchens? And seriously, you are are super hot. What are your favorite (type of) books?
I’m not particularly into cognitive philosophy or philosophy of religion so to speak—I like to research a lot of political philosophy along with a few existential dilemmas here and there, regarding components of the “self”. I also am interested in the field of animal philosophy as well. I think Daniel Dennett is a very credible researcher and a powerful writer. I wish I had a better knack for grasping evolutionary biology—I’m awful at science. His “philosophy of thought” is very interesting, especially how it relates to his evolutionary theories. Reminiscient of an early Darwin and possibly even Dewey. I think I’m more familiar with the works of Hitchens, even though he can be quite aggressive at times. I’m an atheist (“antitheist”) myself, and he makes great points in his work God is Not Great (which one of my best friends is obsessed with; I think I got the name correct?), but I feel like he comes off a tad too strong at times. He’s one of those philosophers that almost expects a person to live out his opinion rather than leaving the question open-ended for the reader to postulate on. I like reading German philosophy (surprisingly), but outside of that realm I also enjoy reading various poetry and short stories (Dorothy Parker is one of my favorites). I’ve also read a lot of Vonnegut, Emerson, and Salinger lately. :)
“Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.”—Haruki Murakami (via misswallflower)
You're really, really, really, hot and I wanna have super nerdy conversations with you.
-Blush- Thanks! And, super nerdy conversations are the greatest. How nerdy are we trying to go: Scratching the surface of Philosophical inquiries or delving fully into the wonderful world of anime? Or both? Hrrrmm?
