oh, I'm not saying it wasn't there, only that I read those books sooooo long ago that I don't recall there being any. I'm sure if you guys say it's there and dripping with it, it's there! It was more a comment about how I'd like to NOT feel so dumb and notice that stuff for myself by rereading! Word...

Again, something else for me to re-read. Like you, I enjoyed that series, but don't recall the overwriting or melodrama, so I'll have to check that. How about this bit of sort-of SciFi: Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert Heinlein. I read it ages ago, and still occasionally have the word "grok" pop i...

That's an interesting point about Lovecraft J$, I've only read his works one time through. I'm tempted now to re-read and see for myself...hmmmm...

Forgive me if this is obvious, but are you referring to Stephen R Donaldon, of Lord Foul's Bane fame?

Here's something that kicks ass, having a pseudo-celebrity get busted for lip synching on SNL, and try to blame it on her band. What a great moment in television history! (though I didn't see in on TV, found it online..., there aren't any internet poweroff remotes yet...) :P http://www.gawker.com/to...

SMILE

Listening to BW's Smile. Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect, but it's incredibly fun and interesting. I'm amazed at how his voice has such a era-anchored quality to it, yet it's timeless at the same time. Highly recommend this to anyone whoever enjoyed late 60's psych-pop. I hear Atom Heart Mother in...

Yeah, rather than considering it as a moral decision about who shouldn't be watching TV, I think of it as a prank. And that said, I want one. :lol: Bingo! That's the spirit it was posted in... I, who really don't care about TV one way or the other, would find that kind of prank funny. ;) That said,...

Hey Generic, yup. No specific genre, just gotta be old.

Don Quixote is definitely on my list, as is Tale of Two Cities. Thanks!

Classic Literature

Anything by Alexandre Dumas (3 Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Man in the Iron Mask) These books are astoundingly good. I'd even go so far as to call them a refreshing read, after reading more contemporary readings. You read me? 'k, that was dumb. Anyone else have some strong recommendati...

I'm sold. I have, this evening, picked up the book. I have also visited the website, but refrained from reading anything other than the suggested soundtracks thread, no need for spoilage. Jute, thanks for this. I haven't been this excited about reading something in a long, long while... I'll report ...

My point is just that you shouldn't spend lots of money validating the con artists' tripe, just so that you can feel free to delude yourself into thinking that things taste better. You'd might as well just say that waving your hands over the bottle makes it taste better too; it's a lot cheaper, and...

Thanks for the well wishes...and I you. You'll get there...it's pretty natural for most people to start thinking about children at some point...later for some than others, but most get there. And if not, that's alright too.

Great thread!
