"Who Did Those 29 Realistic Farts?"

I'm Matt.

19, Cis Dude(He/Him/His), Canadian, Recovering Hipster, Tragically a Pop Culture Expert.

I consume things and sometimes I create things. Sometimes I critique things we consume, but one thing at a time. I like all kinds of art and entertainment, and I hope to create more (writing, drawing, making videogames and music, etc.)

I also have interest in other things, like politics and computer programming, but I'm a neophyte in those fields.


If I ever do anything rude, harmful, or offensive and you feel safe and comfortable enough to do so, call me out! I promise I'll at least try to change my behaviour for the better.

So, I was tagged by bringthesuntoussaintlouverture to do a Book List Challenge, where you name 10 books that stayed with you in some way. I still want to do the challenge, but I have a confession to make: I haven’t read a book outside of school in years. I’ve started books, but I haven’t finished one since (and this is embarrassing) The Perks of Being a Wallflower in 2010. It’s kind of shameful, I used to be such an intensive reader as a kid.

I could make a list of mostly kids books (lots of Roald Dahl, Cornelia Funke, and Louis Sachar) or books I read in school, but the rules mentioned books that “touched” you, so I’ll write about 10 books that literally touched me, books I own that I should finish reading, to inspire me to read.

1. 1984 by George Orwell

2. Moby Dick by Herman Melville

3. The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

4. Dune by Frank Herbert

5. The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

6. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde (this one is bad, this one is short enough to read in a few hours)

7. Open City by Teju Cole

8. Underworld by Don DeLillo

9. If on a winter’s night a traveller… by Italo Calvino

10. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

And I have more books I haven’t read! I don’t know why I haven’t read them! I know I have the attention span, I watched all of Breaking Bad in a few weeks and I just watched the first two seasons of Mad Men with my dad (maybe I need flashing images). But I want to read more, and I hope this list will help me. I’ve made Tumblr lists and promises that I haven’t kept, but I want to at least try this one.

P.S. I know I haven’t been on Tumblr much these past two weeks, but I’m alive. There were posts I wanted to make, mostly about having to miss a Wu-Tang Clan concert to go to a wedding, but I went to the wedding, and felt the longer I spent not making the post, the longer the post became irrelevant. So I didn’t go on Tumblr, but while I miss people on Tumblr, I don’t miss Tumblr as a whole. I’ll get back to posting, but I went to Saskatchewan today to see family until Wednesday, and then next Friday, I’ll go to Whistler, B.C. until the Wednesday after that. So this Tumblr hiatus will probably be another two weeks. I could use the mobile app, but using it right now, I don’t want to do that. So I’ll see you all in a couple of weeks!

Ending my 10 day Tumblr hiatus to say that, after almost 9 months of waiting, I’M FINALLY SEEING ARCADE FIRE TONIGHT!

Putt-Putt Joins The Parade is gone, only Pajama Sam In: No Need To Hide When It’s Dark Outside remains!

Just wanted to say Putt-Putt Joins the Parade and Pajama Sam are still up for grabs!

Inspired by this post that states that Bill Watterson predicted vaporwave, I decided to make a Calvin and Hobbes vaporwave cover.
(Also, I might make an album with this cover.)
