Dark Academia Book List



I have notices bloggers posting a list of recommending dark academia theme books. However, I'm going to put my two cents here and say that people are missing the point in what dark academia is. Dark Academia is foremost an aesthetic. It what I describe as being halfway between steampunk and gothic.

Now the idea of DA is the love of learning, discovery, and seeking intellectual knowledge. Mainly it the love of classical culture. It’s the love of the arts and of times gone by.

Unexplainable Movies You has to Watch to Understand





What is an unexplainable movie? Well, my definition of one is when someone can't explain a movie without spoiling the plot or the movie itself has a multi-layer concept that explaining to someone will not do it justice. You just have to watch the movie to fully understand the concept.

Then again you can't fully understand any movie without watching it. You can go your whole life listening to people talk about a movie and get the juice of what it about, however, your not going to truly know a movie until you watch it.

The movies on this list can only be described in a few words before throwing your hand up in the air and shouting I don't know.
