I swear to Scandinavian drunks, I'm not an Ethiopian princess.
Those who are not privy to the thoughts and considerations of their peers, would often grant demerits to the aforementioned concept, though often standing in for ignorance. This is what some like to refer to as an act of wall building. They are wrong. The narcissistic qualities that the ones who bother articulating universally intuition attribute, is often for hapless self obsession. They are wrong. I give no credence to self promotion as means of a dangerous lack of empathy, for it is natural, even sparking a speckle of innocence. The true narcissists will never promote themselves, but only wait to get promoted.
But by the powers that be, let us take one step toward betterment, utopia's are not created by vague hunches from hunch backed men. They are achieved through a universal will, through means of individual intelligence. A leap of faith will not lead us to a better disposition, removed calculations will always take top priority. Quiet, uncouth temptations, wily instincts, the automotive compartmentalization of enforced habits. Forgive the opacity of what I have said, as the step forward involves a straightforward arrow, prose adeptly follows.
I have always been called Philip Cheek, and my birth certificate reads accordingly, so I suppose that I am indeed Philip Cheek. After a fairly rough year at my public high school last year, I now attend a charter school that boasts a media arts focus where I am more successful academically (mainly due to two new additions to my work ethic: showing up and actually doing work). I have been accused of being a film buff, and indeed, I have seen many films, my favorite being; 2001: A Space Odyssey, the brilliant science fiction masterpiece from the late and great (and neurotic) Stanley Kubrick.
I am also a fan of literature, I love to read. I read frequently of all genres. Although I am very much infatuated with the early nineteen hundreds modernism works, my favorite being Ulysses, by James Joyce; my love for reading is indebted to the Harry Potter series, as well as some other books earlier. It is my love for strong characters and amazing serialized plots that put these characters in the most satisfying situations so they may bounce off of each other. I do not care what any of the literary prudes may say there in nothing more artistic than a story that shows us real characters reflecting real life. I am also a huge fan of surrealism, and I am as of now no longer concerned with being entertained by literature but enlightened. I want to briefly shout out to my favorite authors: Philip K. D., Ray Bradbury, William Faulkner, and there are too many to count after this.
What goes hand in hand with my love of reading is my love of writing. I am sure that shines through this mammoth post - I look for any chance to write, even if I am sure it will have no audience. I have been writing for so long that I have reached a place in my writing that is all about style, personification, and elements I can hardly articulate (including subjective grammar, stream of consciousness, malleable points of view, etc.) to create a lucid, dreamy, reflection of our most inner fears and hopes; a study of the human condition. I am working on a full length novel that is taxing me on every level emotionally and intellectually, that includes the aforementioned techniques - the novel will be entitled "Apotheosis". However when I am finished with my story, my intention is to return to my roots as a writer after this mammoth project. My talents lie in crafting stories and creating characters, I love the way I like to weave my character through different trials, creating lives ordinary readers can relate to. It has been too long since I wrote a story for pure entertainment, one my friends could read and actually enjoy. And what ever adventurous, experimental writing techniques I lean into, I will always keep that in mind.
And my love for serialized fantasies, and strong character based plotting has bought me to manga. I love reading manga, and the hapless sophistication of manga is something all western artists, be story tellers or cartoonists need to look into. Fullmetal Alchemist (the original series that did not follow the manga) is my favorite anime, and I have read too many great manga to single one out I particularly love the most. I am right now following Naruto religiously, and I also am adamant in my belief that Dragon Ball is the archetypal shonen. As far as television goes, I love many different anime (though I rarely watch anime on television), I am also addicted to Lost, and am a hardcore South Park, Family Guy, Mythbusters, and Jackass fan, and many cartoons that I do not have the space to name. I am an avid video game player, a lover of all things blizzard, and a hardcore Zelda fan, and a huge fan of all old school games (original NES owner here), and I love GTA and Final Fantasy, and enough people (like almost every friend I have who plays video games) have recommended Kingdom Hearts, that I will be checking it out shortly.
As far as my disposition goes, what is left to be said? Over the years I have been called racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, esoteric, violent, mean spirited, cruel, sad, intolerant, masochistic, perverted and many others; though this is mainly due to my unruly sense of humor. I am an atheist, though I have fun with the concepts, but I have been recently playing with existential concepts (which have a huge role in my works, by the way). My first love was word play, and a joke for me can go very far (just look at this post). But to be honest, I have not been very happy with my behavior the last few months. I am trying to become less of an ass_hole, as I feel I have been unfairly mean. I also am trying to become less expressive with my emotions, as I hate people who are visibly emotional, which for all I am concerned, is none of our business or interest - so who am I to be a hypocrite? I have always billed myself a loner, and anti-social to the utmost degree, but I have a feeling it is getting harder to live up to. I love the quote my friend once said, when answering an incredulous peer who mentioned he never once had seen me serious, he said "Phil is often serious, just no one ever takes him seriously". XD
Oh, and I ******** your wife.
