    has anyone picked up/read: [​IMG] ? i'm curious to see if it's just weird and unmanageable or actually kind of interesting.
    There's a thread on it. I read 30 pages and put it down. Pennglock is the resident Pynchon expert. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...hlight=pynchon

    I went to see him read his garbage. Everybody in the audience was falling apart laughing, and I was just sitting there.
    LOL I can picture you doing this.

    Currently reading two books:

    King of Heists: The Sensational Bank Robbery of 1878 That Shocked America
    F.T. Marinetti: Critical Writings

    I'm left feeling like I would've been best served reading Marinetti in my 20s.

    These two people make me want to kill somebody, preferably them.

    Well, aren't you the masochist! Even worse than I thought - you choose to live in San Francisco AND attend a reading by David Sedaris. I'm intrigued (somewhat, though - my feelings might change in 5 minutes) by your hostility towards Pollan. You got a lot of stock in IBP?? I don't think that I'm "drinking the Kool Aide" when I think that the ideas he presents is rational, objective, and based on human eating behavior that is time-tested.

    I never thought I'd find myself reading a comic book in adulthood, but Asterios Polyp came highly recommended. The subject matter is unusual for a comic- An aging academic architect ruminating on his life and achieving some self-awareness after a string of events.

    It's not bad at all, and the illustrations are superb.

    Still working on Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's picking up rather nicely and I expect to move on to the follow-up once this one's finished.

    Finished The View from a Monastery on the plane last night which also kept me from sleeping. Now I am regretting how good it was.

    My adult comic book kick continues: finished Brubaker's Criminal run which was pretty damn good. Very noir and the writing was brisk. Starting on his Sleeper series now.
