My fated, fearless, civilized, black and white call of duty

AP English Teacher on the Iliad:
“Achilles is a man with an MBA in manslaughter.”

Me on the Iliad:
SarcasticSteven: zeus was hatin on the trojans
SarcasticSteven: and hera’s like “oh no, don’t be hurtin mah homeboys”
SarcasticSteven: so she gets a plan to subdue zeus
SarcasticSteven: and she’s like “i want your cock”
SarcasticSteven and he’s like “damn! none of my other bitches be that horny!”

SarcasticSteven: like this one trojan was like “your moms are whores!”
SarcasticSteven: and so this achaean was like “don’t be sayin nothin about my momma!”
SarcasticSteven: and he thrusts a spear through the guy’s eye, coming out of his skull the other side
SarcasticSteven: then he beheads him and holds the head up high, with the spear still in it
SarcasticSteven: and he’s like “tell his dad that his son’s a pussy! achaeans represent!”
SarcasticSteven: and the trojans bounce

So as you can see, AP English is just fine. I get to sleep when the teacher isn’t breaking English teacher norms, and the Iliad is chock full of random people being randomly killed in grotesque ways. I hear Canterbury Tales is a lot racier, but the Iliad is still good stuff.

I snooped around and found layouts to give the site and the photo gallery graphical overhauls. I felt it was due for a change after nearly two months of inactivity. I’ve been primarily neglecting it because there have been a lot of things hanging over my head, and I play games to get away from that. And it just so happens that I like games that pull me in, so I’ve been spending a lot of time gaming and not a lot of time thinking.

Stay tuned; the next post will have pictures.

  1. Holy shit! This is hot. Mmm, hot. I like it, a lot. Although I will miss your sexy canon quotes. 🙁 I guess the quote baton has been passed, eh? *admires the pretty pictures*

    1. I like it too.

      I was thinking of adding the quote to the sidebar, but it didn’t really work. I spent a while collecting all of them; they’ll be missed. *chucks baton in your general direction*

  2. i’m so glad we’re done with the iliad and only had to read certain books of it. we’re on hamlet now. it’s pretty great. honestly, the iliad was just a bunch of dead people and abused women. pretty great, come to think of it…

  3. Greek stuff is awesome- this reminds me horribly of my literature class which completly makes fun of the Greek/Roman works that we are studying there. Sweet stuff indeed.
