Essential Posts

Please note that my blog posts are very informal and not a good showcase of my writing ability. If you’re looking for more structured writing than blog posts, please check out the papers that I have written on my main website.

  1. The “original” tag has all of my creative writings. Take a look if you’re not that interested in my analytical write ups. I especially like “Grand Unified Theory” and “Perseid
  2. Foreign foreign language songs” – actually a guest post by one of the long time contributors of litchin and mellifluously, but has so many great songs on it. Also a really good example of the community on those mailing lists.
  3. If you’re here because of my Jeopardy appearance, then the observations in the “jeopardy” tag are relevant for you. There are also formal interviews / presentations on my main website. (Please contact me if you would like the password)
  4. The “snippets” tag has several random ideas that I’ve had that – either due to lack of time or lack of interest for the full literature review needed – I have only decided to pose and not answer. They’re a quick overview of the questions I like to ask. Very much inspired by Seth Teller’s Random Ideas page.

My writing ability has changed quite a bit since I first started in 2014, so I’m less proud of these posts because they’re too rambly.

  1. Real Art vs. Fake Art” and its revisited response – probably the most clear manifesto of part of my personal philosophy
  2. The following are a pretty good look at the cross-genre interconnections I like to make, although not very strong posts by themselves
    1. “‘Rape Fantasies’ – Margaret Atwood” — please read my updated response for actual analytical content and to see how my writing style has changed from 2014 to 2018.
    2. Norwegian Slow Video Games
    3. James Brown is Dead
    4. Rap, Spirituals, and Die Antwoord
    5. Periodic Table of Seder-Masochism
