Books: Currently reading Kesey, Cuckoo's Nest. Just finished Steep
Approach To Garbardale by Iain Banks. What a writer. I want to read
The Wasp Factory and The Bridge again.
Michael Ondaatje. The Nasty Bits by Bourdain and The Ginger Man by
JP Donleavy. In addition, The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Recently
read Work and Other Sins, a collection of writings by Charlie
LeDuff, NYTimes columnist. Lots of bits about drinking and NYC bars
and post 9-11 stuff. . There's also a Beat Generation reader that I
keep out. Just finished The Death of Bunny Munro by Mr. Nick Cave!
On The Road-Kerouac. Ya' know.
Music: You can see above to get a sense of some of the stuff I buy
on vinyl. I've applied to Jackpot every time they post an opening,
which is something like four times in the last year, and only this
time managed to connect with the owner face-to-face.
