oh fuck that's a great book
I'm actually reading Corey Taylor's book right now...he may not be in the most metal band on the planet, nor does he have to be, but he is an interesting guy none the less. I went through my years where Slipknot where the worst band in heavy music because they didn't sound like Death, Priest and Testament but like them or hate em'...his lyrics are fun to read (no, I'm not talking about "fuck it all, fuck this world" lyrics, I'm talking about his writing in between all of that in most of his songs that seem very maniacal, poetic and witty at the same time). The book is interesting...it's basically him talking about the Seven Deadly sins but he weaves his roller coaster of a life and childhood and his crazy experiences through it all.
finished my second read of Dance with Dragons - probably the weakest in the ASOIAF series but still, you know, a very good read. hope it's only a couple years to the next one.
not sure what i'm reading next - my parents shipped up a ton of my old books from the basement. maybe some dan simmons.
I recall reading that the next book should be next year. I'm not a fan, though, so I couldn't say for sure.
I'm reading Stephen Fry's Making History. What an incredibly splendid book.
Can anyone recommend a really good political/military thriller aside from the obvious gems like early Tom Clancy and Fred Forsyth?
^ Nothing comes to mind tbh...I recently finished The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, which borders on the philosophical/political as far as the 60s communist regimes are concerned.
Such a sad, expressive novel. Go at it!
I've been trying to read it but I just can't buckle down for this one.
Nausea by Sartre.
I think James Clavell wrote a few critically acclaimed political/social/military thrillers. They're complicated stuff though, not easy reading.
Reading The Postman. Very different from the movie, great book so far.
And for the record, i didn't hate the movie.
Rereading Lord of the Rings. Just started Two Towers.
I loved the LOTR books when I was a kid, except for all the damn singing and homo-eroticism.

Picked up the complete works of H.P. Lovecraft on Kindle for 99 cents. Forgot how long "At the Mountains of Madness" is.
Lovecraft's The Outsider is one of my favorite, creepy little short stories.
Absolutely. The Outsider and Shadow over Innsmouth are my favourite Lovecraft stories. Ooh, and Polaris too.
