Topics I've Started

  1. Another Bullshit Night In Suck City

    Posted 8 Mar 2007

    Anyone read this yet? If so, thoughts?

    I was going to pick it up, but decided on Richard Perez's The Losers' Club instead, and I think I made the poorer decision of the two.

    EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I'm loving The Losers' Club, I just think that Another Bullshit Night might be more up my alley.
  2. E-books/real Books

    Posted 19 Feb 2007

    I've got a ton of e-books. I've got e-books coming out of my goddamn ears. But I haven't touched them. I have reader software on my Treo that's perfect for e-books, but can't even be arsed to load the books on there, much less read them. Why?

    Fuck e-books. I want something tangible. I want to feel the grit of the paper between my hands, to feel the heft of the book as I carry it around. I want something more defining, more engrossing than a backlit screen and having to scroll through pages with a stylus. I love the smell of books. I love going through a bookstore and finding things, as opposed to browsing a set of pre-organized, cut-and-dried links and buying something. It's so sterile that it's nearly frightening.

    What's your take on the contrast between books and e-books? Do you prefer one over the other, and why?
  3. Children Of Men

    Posted 17 Feb 2007

    Fucking epic film. Go see it.

    If you've already done so, thoughts?
