the blog manifesto.

the purpose of sme is simply this: to overthrow the capitalist hegemony that has a stranglehold on our beautiful, multiethnic society. contributors are asked to take part in this, our overriding mission, so the people of the green earth can breathe together in the clean air of progressive politics and non-judgmentalism. each blog post must bask in the sunlight of earnest expression, never falling into the trap of satire or parody. our aim is clarity and verisimilitude; our mission is truth and the propagation of it. the blog is the perfect place to post your old family videos, homophobic video blogs, another blog's material, awkward, poorly-drawn sketches, halo reach updates, or unexplained/irrelevant wikipedia articles--sme is home to the entire eclectic conflation that is the internet. if there is one thing entirely intolerable to the editors of sme, it is sarcasm. there is simply no room in this blog for sarcastic, humorous, and reference driven posts. if you are among those responsible for such garbage, please leave.

I found this paper today and had a good lulz about it.  I thought I would share.

Main Character analysis - Chapter six from Fight Club

Chapter six from Charles Michael Palahniuk's Fight Club was originally published as a short story, and sometime after publishing the story Palahniuk decided to write a book around it.  The short story is about one man's struggle with his homosexual desires; it captures the tension of a gay man trapped in a straight society, and the process of liberation.
