I study people, technology, and the worlds they make

This still makes me laugh

Kung Fu Monkey:

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

[To the tune of Shin Jung Hyun & the Questions: Live at the Seoul Theatre, “In-A-Kadda-Da-Vida,” from the album In-A-Kadda-Da-Vida (a 4-star song, imo).]


  1. Bahahahaha! Laughed more than I probably should have… I got some strange looks after I busted up laughing…

  2. I was lucky that the only one that I caught in my younger years was Fountainhead. I read Atlas Shrugged much too late to be that impressionable.
