    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    thats about the length of my hair if i were to straighten it.

    does antonioli send a confirmation email when purchasing?
    i purchased a blazer via bank transfer a few weeks ago and now they claim they never received the money and cancelled my order. (amount had been deducted from my bank account from the first day!)
    put another oder thru with a cc and the item is still listed and they havent sent me a confirmation?!

    Definitely worth reading. My favorite book in a minute (not that I do a ton of reading).
    Phillip K. Dick has a ton of great ideas but not so many great books. I'm kind of shocked that they haven't turned The Man in the High Castle into a movie yet, though.
    I actually really liked that part. A bunch of people in my book club couldn't get past it, though.

    I thought it was kinda like have a foreign-born TA in college; it take a class or two to understand what the hell they're saying, but at a certain point it clicks an it stops sounding like they even have an accent.

    i picked up count zero by william gibson and i find it to be exactly the same as neuromancer :laugh:
    storyline is tweaked, i like that it involves corruption in the art world (so far..)

    I fail to see the problem with this.

    Currently reading stranger in a strange land. It's super sexist and kind of boring. Gonna tough it out because it's a quote-unquote classic.

    Has anyone read Perdido street station?

    not really a problem since i really enjoyed neuromancer. i just found it weird that the author would rehash the story line. i dont know if its common or not?

    It starts pretty much the same but it goes in a fairly different direction. (though yeah, it's still pretty similar).

    Mona lisa overdrive is a lot different than the other two though.

    When fiction calls my name, I typically go for the crazy (post)modernist stuff too. But after reading some Wallace Stevens last night, I picked up the Norton Anthology that I had to buy sophomore year and read a bunch of Andrew Marvell, John Milton, Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder, and Philip Sidney. It's kind of nice to return to the older things every now and then. Especially poetry. :satisfied:

    gibson makes a lot of fashion/clothing references too.
    The cruel Darwinism of fashion ..found that line to be so true

    ^I think it's in Spook Country, one of the characters stops in front of a Yohji shop, admiring the asymmetrical lapels on a jacket.

    Yup. Really liked it. China Mieville has a lot of great ideas and he really knows how to build a world. Read that, then read The Scar next :nodding:

    At one point a few years back I decided to spend a while reading poetry since it was something I hadn't really read a lot and felt was a big part of lit I was missing. That period stretched out to two years of nothing but poetry, mostly the classics mixed in with highlights from English and American poetry, and it was really great. It kinda forces you to slow down and digest everything in a way you don't always have to do with novels. It also made me a much better reader and writer. It's really worthwhile.

    You guys are making me wanna get back into reading, no time though with all this fucking LSAT studying :(

    Give me some recs for good modern day fiction (50s up) that's readable but also worth reading

    It's certainly worth it.
