As your resident party pooper, I say that the “I write like” website probably isn’t totally legitimate or accurate. If it’s telling me I write like Dan Brown and James Joyce and Gertrude Stein, I want to know why. There may not be any rhyme or reason to these famous author matches, but it’s still fun to see who’s writing your words emulate. I entered three snippets of writing into the generator: 1) a blog post 2) a poem and 3) an essay.
Which famous author do you write like? Go for it.
I have a feeling he’s far too cool to be seen brooding around the hipster brunch spots…
To my second favorite animal: how can anyone resist your kind, round, blubbery body?
I was browsing for cases for the iphone that I received in the mail today (thank you mama!), and I came across anicase. Not only are these cases affordable ($20! as compared to the usual $35), they also support the endangered animals (10% donated to endangered species). Nothing can get cuter or more amazing than this. I got the tiger one by the way…RAWR…can’t wait for mine to arrive 🙂
Just quoted a line from this poem in a screenplay I’m working on. See Frank read it here.
Having a Coke with You
is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne
or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona
partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian
partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt
partly because of the fluorescent orange tulips around the birches
partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary
it is hard to believe when I’m with you that there can be anything as still
as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it
in the warm New York 4 o’clock light we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles
and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint
you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them
at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick
which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time
and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or
at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michelangelo that used to wow me
and what good does all the research of the Impressionists do them
when they never got the right person to stand near the tree when the sun sank
or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully
as the horse
it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience
which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I am telling you about it
1. Go exploring.
2. Share what you discover.
3. Do something. Anything.
4. Embrace your innate weirdness.
5. Have a cause.
6. Minimize the swagger.
7. Give it a shot.
8. Hop off the bandwagon.
9. Grow a pair.
10. Ignore the scolds.
