    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    Been on a graphic novel kick today. I'm going to start the Amulet series by Kazu Kibuishi. That series was my shit back in middle school. Although I've basically forgotten the major players and events, so I got to start it all over again.
    And I finished both of Fran Krause's delightfully morbid comic collections: Deep Dark Fears and The Creeps. If you need to pad your Goodreads profile, then I highly recommend this pair. The art style is simplistic, but it made the books even more enjoyable while also being quick reads. Some of the fears made me laugh, while others stuck with me. Like these ones:

    Maybe the reason why Kenna uses a washed-out beige tone for her aesthetics is to emphasize her "neutral emotions."
    But that's just a theory

    So...Onision has a new channel now?
    And he's saying that Onision is just a character of his?
    Wow, what a "creative" way to distance yourself from your actions and refuse to take responsibility for them, Greg! 👍

    I've honestly gotten bored of all the meme channels on Youtube. They were funny for a couple months. But once you've seen one channel, you've pretty much seen them all. 
    But from a business perspective, it's almost genius the way they could profit off of others' videos by editing it and adding a watermark. Still doesn't make it any less shady.

    I just finished Lolita last night. The language was definitely enchanting, to the point of being purple-prosey and hard to sift through in large chunks. Maybe my mind can't absorb flowery language as well as it used to. Although, I've heard that the more works you read from Vladimir Nabokov, the more enjoyable his writing becomes. 
    But oh my god, Humbert Humbert is a vile piece of pedophilic trash. The sheer horror of his actions really contrasts with the writing style Nabokov employs. But I'm sure that was the point.
    Anyway, I've now started on American Gods, by Neil Gaiman, and Tobias Wade's The Trees Have Eyes. The former is definitely easier to read than Lolita, though I'm only up to page 50. It's about an ex-con named Shadow who's employed by an enigmatic man named Mr. Wednesday to be his bodyguard. I spoiled a few parts of the book already because I tried determining what gods some of the characters were. 
    For the latter book, not much to report on yet. I got a free PDF of it after subscribing to Blair Daniels' website. Besides, it was a free horror anthology. Who would pass that up?

    No, but this girl has way better style than Kenna any day.

    Spoilers because I'm a long-winded, manipulative cunt.
    Tl;dr: You're not missing anything.

    I know this is a joke tweet, but it's pretty accurate:

    Since Kenna constantly brags about her "college-level" English, why doesn't she utilize that to make better poems? Her ✧・゚: *✧・゚:* exemplary*:・゚✧*:・゚✧ knowledge of the English language should have her play with metaphors, allegories, or symbolism in her poems. Not have her churn out Rupi Kaur poems with the subtlety of a chainsaw. 
    Now, there are definitely good poems that are on the straightforward side (Robert Frost and Shel Silverstein come to mind). But their poems entice the readers to ponder more about the underlying messages behind the poems.
    Kenna fails to do that. And that's all I have to say.

    Oh god, what if she tries to become a mod here? I'm cackling just by thinking about it.

    Didn't she have a history of becoming a mod on her own Subreddit, where she deleted or censored any comments she didn't agree with?
    I thought I remember seeing that info on this thread, but I could be wrong.

    Well, got a C+ on my last Bio test. At least my final grade for that online class is a B+. And I got an A on the Lab portion of the Bio class, so that's good. 
    My type-A side is slightly disappointed. I know this will decrease my overall GPA, but hey. I achieved what I could, and reaped the results.
    And that's all that matters.
