Re: what the fuck are you reading?

Man I love Shark Hunt, one of my favorite pieces by HST.

Lately I have been on a classics kick, in the past few months I have read Hemingway's 'The Sun Also Rises, Steinbeck's Tortilla Flats, Of Mice and Men, The Long Valley, Herman Hesse's Sadartha, and just started F. Scott Fitz' This Side Of Paradise, and just finished Apollo 13 (Lost Moon) by Jim Lovell. Before that I was rereading all the dystopian novels; Huxley's A Brave New World, Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm.

Music and reading man, can't get enough of either, hoping to finish Hemingway, Steinbeck, and F. Scott's complete works in the next year. I knocked out most of Vonnegut's works and am slowly creeping through Kerouac's, as for Hunter I proudly own and have read everything of his I can get my hands on.

Most prized possessions; Signed copy of Electric Kool Aid Acid Test, Signed first edition of Ken Kesey's Furthur Inquiry, and Kesey's Sailor Song, oh yeah and a signed copy of Jack Herrer's The Emperor Wears No Clothes!

Passionate Marriage and a classic, The Bible, nice version w/ The Book of Sirach and Eclessiasticus. Check it w/ an open mind, pray for illumination from the Almighty to read through man's meddlings.

A true classic. I wished someone a little more akin to the scene had written it instead of Tom Wolfe. Don't get me wrong, he's
a great author. Bonfire of the Vanities is an excellent book.

I was just reading the ingredients on a box of instant vanilla pudding. All the 7, 8 and 9 syllable words were a challenge.
