THE "A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE VAN BURENS" CHALLENGE
no
Against A Dark Background  Do we seriously not have a book thread other than the 50-book challenge one?
Oh, I liked Excession, so read that. But that's only the second Culture book I've tried, and the first one I've finished. 
I liked "The Pervert's Guide to Cinema," if you want accessible. (i.e. is not a book)
The only "sci-fi" I've read lately was the pattern recognition trilogy (have not read peripheral yet) and Idoru, but I think we probably talk about gibson too much. I like the rest of The Expanse, although I think they do go downhill. Number 2 is fun. I thought number 4 was weak.  Looking forward to reading 5 when I get the time. I am a major sucker for its brand of cliche, though. Here's a post about fantasy books I just made on brad's forum though:  [[SPOILER]]
We had a fantasy literature thread somewhere, right? Right?????
5 zip is perfect, ignore all other commentary and wear it into the ground
TIEBREAKER   fwiw I think we're all winners here   also, the Uniqlo gift card that @Parker sent me for the denim challenge is up for grabs in whichever future contest I deem worthy. Sadly, I have no Uniqlo stores near me. Gotta share the love.
 No. It all just seems so inauthentic when it's sitting on the fifth floor of a very well air-conditioned department store, across the hall from Margiela. The camper is in there, too - just, like, in the middle of the floor. I'd love to hear John Mayer croon about that shit. They didn't even have any fishing rods on display.
