Crazy Pammy: “I Shall Pick Up Victor Hugo”
Today Crazy Pammy is waxing lyrical about the worst novel ever written. Here are some highlights:
My blog is exemplar [sic] of A is A. That’s what I deliver here ….A.
What struck me was [sic] when I first read Atlas was living by the coda [sic] of moral values. Man’s moral value -his value through his work. His value through his his [sic] achievement and the evil that seeks to undermine it and destroy it at every turn.
In celebration I shall pick up Victor Hugo and read, perhaps, Les Miserables, as a gift to me from Ayn.
WTF?? Was she in a terrible hurry or is she really that dumb?
Damn, between her, Schussel (sp?) and dank, it’s not one bit surprising how people as dumb as George Bush can get elected in this country.
I feel like John fucking Steinbeck.

That’s not nice. Atlas Shrugged is a great American masterpiece of doorstop.
People who think Ayn Rand is of any literary merit, or think that a philosophy summed up by the equation ‘A = A’—whose underlying principle Évariste Galois identified as the retarditive property—are either seriously brainwashed or have never seen a good book in their lives. I am translating Dagdrömmar: En Man Utan Humor I of Gustaf Hellström into English and it is fucking sick.

To be completely honest, I think maybe The Fountainhead is actually worse than the execrable Atlas Shrugged. The one and only thing that both of those novels have going for them is readability — despite their epic length, both books are reasonably entertaining.
Atlas Shrugged actually came in very handy the first time I read it — I was stuck on a submarine (USS Phoenix, SSN-702) for a few months back in 1991, and had only brought about two weeks’ worth of reading material. I soon got desperate enough to tackle Atlas Shrugged, which was in the “library” on board. It kept me entertained for a few days, although I was admittedly pretty hard up for reading material. The “philosophy” is nothing but silly tautologies — as you say, if you find “A is A” to be some kind of profundity, you’re easily pleased. And yes, if you think Atlas Shrugged is a great novel, you haven’t read many novels.
I re-read Atlas Shrugged in 2002, to see if a decade of life experience would make any difference in my low opinion of the book. It was much worse the second time around, which was no surprise.

Wow, a nuclear submarine; were you in the Navy or something?
I find Rand’s prose style turgid and unreadable by the way, which is also why I haven’t read much of H.P. Lovecraft’s otherwise fine horror literature. Contrast Germanic prose-poetry.
Maybe her novels read better in the original Russian.

Even though she came from Russia, I think her first language was more like Angry German.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
