I already linked to Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius by Borges elsewhere, but it's worth re-linking:

>>2 what?

5 Name: Bookworm : 2006-01-04 21:02 ID:Heaven

Maybe he's thinking of Takashi Murakami? Different guy.

6 Name: 2 : 2006-01-05 20:39 ID:Heaven

I'm thinking of Haruki Murakami.
Haruki Murakami = no.

Your terseness is puzzling; explain.

age for explanation about >>2

Repeat after me:
Haruki Murakami is a no.

I tried to nip the presence of Murakami here in the bud, but obviously failed.
My conjecture that the presence of Haruki Murakami will invariably ruin everything was proven by http://4-ch.net/book/kareha.pl/1133909234/42. It took only one link to a Murakami story to achieve this.

For fuck's sake, dude, just stop speaking in riddles and tell us why the fuck you hate the Murakami guy. I'm sure the problem would go away if you just stopped being an abstruse asshole and told us what your stupid problem is!

12 Name: Bookworm : 2006-01-20 05:56 ID:Heaven

Yeah, just saying "no" doesn't convince anyone. Actually, it makes me want to like Haruki Murakami. The superfrog story at >>1 was entertaining.

13 Name: Bookworm : 2006-02-04 04:07 ID:Heaven

>>10 failed.

By being circumscribed you manage to make the thread damn near all about this guy, whereas I don't think people would have cared to much otherwise.
