    Smile Pictures of Authors

    WHY??! Who ever likes to see pictures of authors? ugly, ugly, brilliant authors.

    sorry, this part of the forum's a bit of a yawn.... Who do you think is the ugliest author of all time?

    I think Doestovsky (sp?) is pretty ugly... outside AND in...

    Geez, I have no idea what to post. I mean, judging people's appearrances is not my style.

    No one...I guess

    It's fun to see pics of writers...they're always different from how I imagined them... Or I think 'look, behind that ordinary/weird/ugly/whatever face, there were these impressive thoughts...'

    The picture of Austen at this site is horrifying, worse than Shelley. fool was right about Doestovsky, too. Don't know what Franz Kafka looks like. sub-Sometimes it can be fun to be mindlessly shallow. Course, don't want it to get to the point of incredible inanity.

    Sometimes I like to pretend I'm invisible. And slip into crowds and disappear.

    But if it does not matter why to discuss it anyway?
    There are so many useless things people waste time on anyway...

    Maybe discussing it for the discussion's sake? Everyone has an opinion, no matter how it might not matter, so why not hearing it? One has the possibility of deciding to reply or not to reply .
    Anyone, please, tell me to shut the f*** up! I am annoying even myself, don't know why I'm posting all the things anyway.
    I have a plan: attack!

    If we discussed only things that matter, we'd shut up most of the time, and life would be boring as hell.

    The photos are there, I can't help looking at an author's face and think of his/her words, not because I want to judge their appearance but just for curiosity...They lived, they had a body and a face whether they wanted it or not... Maybe it's just a way to get nearer to a writer's 'humanity' so to speak...

    Why being so fussy about why we discuss what? If you think it's idle to talk about this, don't talk about it and don't fire the other cos they do, even if just for the sake of it.

    oh, I believe you underestimate people.

    interesting point. never thought of that.

    Hm....somebody is very touchy in here. I'm just trying to figure out some things. I do have a right for that, don't I? heh

    lol, Jay-I feel like that AAALLLLL the time, and nobody ever tells me to shut up(don't know why) and we're not going to tell you to either. Besides, I love your posts.

    demona-koa isn't touchy, she just wanted to share her opinion.

    koa-good point about the writers humanity. I never really thought of it like that.
