Classic trippy Dick fiction.

I don't know where you get your facts. The first generation of My Little Ponies were made by Hasbro, not the Khmer Rouge. And Hasbro hasn't made toys out of human skulls since the 1960's.

I'm thinking of adding The History of Bestiality (Moment of Freedom, Powderhouse, and The Silence) by Jens Bj?rneboe to my already long list of books I need to read/finish.

just finished Ready Player One (audio book version as it's narrated by Whhhhill Whhheaton) and it's well worth checking out if you're in anyway into tech & video games

So good. It's size is intimidating, but it's worth the read.
Has anyone read Freedom? If it's anything like The Corrections, I'll be reading it soon enough. 

It's funny... they're almost identical but completely different. Both are incredible though and I get excited when someone I know finishes either one so I can talk about it again.

And I came in here to say I'm reading Strong Motion which I may have too high expectations for...

Yeah? Cool. Like I said, it'll get added. I should probably make a literal list of books to read. It would help with everything.

into the first 100 pages of this and loving it.  "last exit to brooklyn" left me distraught for nearly a week, i feel this creeping into me in the same sort of way...


and finished this last week.  for everyone that says american literature is doomed, here's your book.  broad in scope and highly recommended.

I just started reading "My Infamous Life" by Prodigy of Mobb Deep. Its a memoir he wrote while he was in prison for three years. Really interesting. For the lyrics he writes, he really goes into depth of his involvement in what he raps about (crime, drugs etc) as well as things regarding the hip-hop industry, sex money and drugs. I picked it up and it is hard to put down. Good read.

Just recieved The road to Mecca:



It's the story of a Austrian converting to Islam, travelling through the Middle East in the 1930/40/50's and eventually writing the consitution of Pakistan. After seeing a documentary on the writer I was really impressed and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the current situation between the 'West' and the Middle East.

They made a book out of that movie? Weird.

I don't exactly recommend this but it's been a little while since I graduated an I felt like reading something ?ber academic again.  Don't think I understand a lot of it but get some nice epiphanies along the way.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

Anyone know if there's been any poetry (or prose) about skateboarding?

Thrasher should publish all the poems they used to print (maybe they still do?) in the Poet's Corner.

I'm really interested in that Mecca book, putting it on my list.

just read:
The Alchemist. It's possibly my favorite book ever. I could have read it in a sitting hadn't I stopped myself.


The Quiet American. T'was a good story. Really well written. Peculiar storyline, to say the least. Very intriguing. Takes place in the 1950's in French occupied Vietnam.

I read this last month, along with For Whom The Bell Tolls.  Went on a little Spanish Revolution kick.  But seriously, Homage to Catalonia blew me the fuck away!!  I've considered 1984 my favorite book for about 6 years now, so I knew I'd like it.  But this is like 1984 except not fiction at all.  It's pretty wild to see how involved all the major European nations were in Spain's Revolution.  It's the lost first chapter of what turned into World War II very shortly after.

I just made it to Book 3 this morning. I don't hate it but it feels like a bit of chore to get through sometimes (and this is coming from a guy who owns all of the other Murakami books save for the two first novels)
