House of Leaves, a novel by Mark Z. Danielewski Zampanò
Genre: Horror, Romance, Postmodernism
Publication Date: March 7, 2000
Pages: 709 (Paperback)

House of Leaves is a novel is a manuscript edited by Johnny Truant and written by Zampanò. It is, in a nutshell, a treatise about a well-known documentary, The Navidson Record. Most of you have probably seen the documentary already, but, for the sake of those who have not, allow me to explain in further detail.

The Navidson Record
The Navidson Record is a documentary following famous wartime photographer Will Navidson as he comes back to his house from a trip to Seattle and notices a new closet appeared on a formerly featureless wall. This leads him to document the various changes that occur in his house, notably the fact that the inner measurements shift and grow beyond the outer measurements.

Why this book is significant
This book is well-written and explains the cultural significance of the Navidson Record in a way that is easy to grasp and still interesting.

Stop it.
Stop it. stop it. It's there, it's around, stop it.

Interesting Facts!
The Navidson Record has recently been added to Netflix! it might be a good idea to (re)watch it before you read House of Leaves, in order to fully understand the nuances.
They're all gone. They never existed. The house is still there. I need to find it. I need to. It's real.

Speaking of the minotaur
It's over. it's illegible. We cannot go on. We cannot go on. it is at our doorstep.

    I had electro done on my throat today and it was like having someone hold me down by my trachea and stab me repeatedly with sewing needles they'd left in the fire

    I am sharing because it was such a weird experience

    Anyway

    Avoid needing electrolysis on your throat if you can

    Only Revolutions is a book by the same dude. It is an incredible chore to read and thoroughly beautiful and I recommend the novel because you need to experience it for yourself.

    Hey @skippydumptruck you have piercings

    I got this one on the edge of my ear six weeks ago and its still kinda oozing and painful. They said that'd happen initially but should it still be doing that?? I haven't taken the earring out since I got it, because ofc you're not supposed to for six weeks. I've kept up with the cleaning regimen and been really careful with it :(

    @Blameless Cleric

    if its the edge (cartilage rather than lobe) it will take significantly longer to heal

    (6-8 weeks is healing time for a stretch not a new pierce imo) 3-4 mo prolly to be fully healed? maybe longer

    be sure to salt soak if you can (I'm bad about this) and keep your hands off it

    dont move it or twirl it through the hole if you can help it

    your body's going to form a fistula (flesh tunnel yum) around it and agitating it will slow the process

    basically, just give it time and leave it alone, it'll crust and be gross for a while and then you'll notice one day it isn't!

    Does this also apply to the surgery it's a prerequisite for?

    I've read that way back in the days of Louis XIV's royal French court, the court nobles thought having yourself a good old Fistula and subsequent operation to remove it was the bees knees, because the king had experienced both and everyone wanted to be like the king.

    As an aside, the lengths ol' Louie's court physicians and surgeons went to in order to remedy his king's ailments proved rather revolutionary to the entire field of surgery (and pretty disturbing in general). Trickle down in action folks!

    Alright and in this next scene all the animals have AIDS.

    yes

    here's another gross thing about piercings

    the skin of the fistula still sheds dead skin cells and oil and shit

    if you dont clean it regularly after it heals you get this nasty, rank dead accumulation in the piercing that stinks

    Fighting fistula: Razia's brave recovery from pregnancy nightmare

    In a remote village in central Pakistan a teenage girl is screaming for help in unbearable labour pain. There are no trained midwives or doctors around for miles in Rahim Yar Khan District in southern Punjab.

    The only help at hand is the neighbourhood dai, or traditional birth attendant. She doesn't have the skills or the training to handle a complicated pregnancy. Still, she gets on with what she knows best: pushing and pulling with her hands, as if trying to rearrange the insides of the young woman.

    The pain becomes so severe, the woman, Razia Shamshad, loses consciousness. Her ordeal drags on for about four days, at the end of which the dai manages to pull out the remains of what would have been a baby girl.

    ...

    What she doesn't know is that her long and fruitless labour has caused obstetric fistula - preventable and treatable, but not if you live where she does.

    "My clothes were constantly wet and filthy below the waist. I would smell all the time. I felt helpless," she says.

    "Some neighbours and relatives despised me. Others made fun of me. They said I must have done something to deserve this."

    Alright and in this next scene all the animals have AIDS.

    I got a little excited when I saw your ship.
