    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    I'm the only one I know who uses a Berserk avatar on either of the forums. Yes, I'm a Berserk fan and I DID wonder if Bakker had Berserk influences. I think the difference though is that Berserk includes some pretty savage vengeance as a theme. And that person isn't quite like Cnaiur. Now though, it's up in the air. As for Griffith, it's been argued that he is what humanity in general actually wants. Problem is that it's off the souls of the many in the Vortex of souls. Will people IN Griffith's real care about that? Remains to be seen.

    I thought Kellhus wasn't concerned about such "petty" things. *anger noodle*

    Maybe the point is that Bakker himself doesn't think that Earwa is worth saving and the Consult win is well deserved.

    Oh, it certainly is. It's also insulting. It also made me think that he's most likely a misandrist rather than a misogynist. As for women being "invisible", maybe he's just not comfortable writing women. *shrugs*

    I've never seen that, but maybe he thinks that Earwa is crapsack because of it?

    Men still have choices though. Like Proyas could have raped that girl in Shimeh, but chose not to. I know choices don't come in a vacuum, but the point is that while being a product of your environment can shape you, it doesn't always mean you have no choice. And really, can the Judging Eye be fully trusted? That quote might have been something Mimara was taught to believe. As for men "shining more brightly", that could just be her own personal preference.

    Absolves? I'm not so sure about that seeing that Cnauir went insane due to homophobic attitudes and toxic masculinity in his culture. If no one cared that he was gay or a "weeper" as long as he can still fight, then he would have been okay(or about as okay as a Person of War can be). Proyas was in similar situation to Esmenet and yet SHE is spared while he is hung out to dry. The point is that patriarchy can be just as damaging to men as it is to women. However, I don't think Bakker conveyed that very well.

    I was under the impression that he was trying to say that if such gods actually existed, along with "ontological truth", then it would be a very bad thing.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Finished Memories of Ice yesterday and I honestly think it was one the best fantasy novels I ever read. So far, it's the best in the series, imo. I just loved it despite some flaws. Itkovian <3 He does, however, seem to be a bit of a base breaker.

    Throw in Akka/Proyas for me and a different fate for the latter. Well, I liked the ending, but yea, you're right.

    So did a rage quit.

    Brukhalian, Itkovian and Whiskeyjack are real heroes. 90% complete in MOI. And I guess those three are a good example of what happens to heroes or(in the case of Itkovian) what they inadvertently do. Then again, I paused right when Silverfox freaked out and called Itkovian a "Noble Fool".

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Who sees Cnaiur as a hero? Sure, in the first trilogy of TSA, he had some great moments, but beyond that? He started getting old fast. As for me, I'm 90% done with Memories of Ice and imo, it's the best so far. Then again, there are like, 7 books left. Heh.

    Welp. He finally updated his blog. I wonder if the essay is a hint about what the No-God will be like.

    There have been claims that he is "binge writing", but all that's certain is that he's been silent since May 31st.
