meh - he'd agree with that - and if he wouldn't, I would.  He's still amusing for a mindless read.
govtcheez03:  i kind of look for it - i seek out stupidity and annoy it until it either gets better, gets banned, or goes away on its own

Noddy. Lots and lots of Noddy. On dvd, too. For hours. :(
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?.

I'm reading Gang Leader for a Day
Finished this the other day.  Really good insight into urban poverty - how it is, how it works, and how people get stuck there.  9/10

That's good - I don't know how much I trust the specifics of his narrative, since so much of it would have to be from memory, but in general it's very good

edit: Picked up "No Impact Man" from the library this weekend

Finished that yesterday (good story on how to decrease your own impact on the environment without being a preachy dick but it's unrealistic for most people, and he says as much)

Next up: either Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein or a book of short stories by Stephen King.  Probably Stephen King because that's also a liberry book

>a book of short stories by Stephen King

which one? I have "Everything's Eventual" but I haven't read all of the stories yet. 1408 is in that one, great short. I haven't seen the movie yet though.
