    omg i died

    saw a "Cheleste" Pista with matching "Cheleste" saddle and Aerospoke. Black dude also had a matching "Cheleste" New Era, and I think his shoes were "Cheleste" too. That, or his straps and pedals were also "Cheleste". The rest of his clothes were ridiculously white, like middle America. COLOURWAYS, (word people are now super touchy about typing).
    ...
    Cheleste (N): The color Celeste, with spelling altered due to reading a bunch of BF C&Vers arguing how to say it verbally; I now hear that in my head every time I read it. Hopefully you will too.

    Sorta like the time 6kidz told me Tange was pronounced "Tahn Ghey"/"Taahn Guh;" everytime I say it that way, I feel like smacking myself in the face for sounding like a genital hygiene product. I'm not Japanese, so I'm not going to even bother with butchering the pronunciation anymore.

    Yeah, I think this is the guy and the bike:



    I spotted him from across the street from my place when that picture was taken and then again in BMC kit near Mass. AVE and Boylston ST before the crit last week. Then there he was at the race:

    I give that essay 2 thumbs down

    my college roommate took a course almost entirely dedicated to the sexual themes of moby dick and i was hoping to find something much more convincing, but then got bored of looking and put the first thing i found up. one thing i remember is he started referring to masturbation as "polishing the underside of the boat" or something to that effect from that point on.

    A more useful essay would be "Why the Extremely Obvious Sexual Innuendos in Moby Dick Are Not Attributable to Cultural Differences"

    "Moby Dick: An Exploratory on How Captain Ahab is a Bukkake Fiending Size Queen."

    ...

    Wait, were we supposed to be subtle about our imaginary titles? I also did not read the essay.

    in all seriousness, can we talk about how herman melville is a FUCKING GENIUS but has one of the most boring prose-styles in the american canon?

    I have a novelist friend who claims the solution to every problem you'll ever have as a writer can be found in Moby Dick.

    And before we get too excitable in our litcrit class about Melville's innuendo, it's worth knowing that the slang for "dick" referring to one's penis didn't enter the lexicon until nearly a half century after MD was published. So the "Dick" and "sperm" connection is entirely anachronistic.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    but doesn't much of ahab's anger come from the fact that it's hinted at moby dick may have taken not only his leg but his manhood as well?

    Still though.

    And also: The word "sperm" is short for spermatozoon, a mature male reproductive cell. The word appropriately symbolizes the all male crew by referring to the biological essence of masculinity. Um, false? He only writes a MILLION times that sperm is short for spermaceti. Which still kinda means sperm BUT STILL.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    I'll back you up on it. Bartleby the Scrivener and Benito Cereno are two of my favorite short stories of all time, but they are so goddamned laborious to read it's maddening. I am currently only half way through Moby Dick for the same reason.

    Yes, although sperm whales get the name from the fact that their spermaceti resembles spermatozoon, and I'm sure Melville made something of that at some point with his symbolism-y tendencies. But, yes, whoever wrote that essay is a total knucklehead.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    That essay just reminds me of everything I hated about high school English - how you can't be like "well maybe the author meant this" you have to be like "OBVIOUSLY THE AUTHOR MEANT THIS"

    Typee and Omoo are both great 'adventure tales' as well, but on a sentence to sentence-page to page basis it's horribly slow.

    moby dick is definitely one of those 'need to read the annotated version 2 or 3 times' kind of books, even to just begin to scratch the surface of the complexity of the new england melville depicts.

    sedition, this is not a conversation about great works of literature, it's a conversation about great works of literature that have a regrettably slow/boring prose style. joyce does not fit into that category
