Default Tabanid Tuesday

Since no one has started one yet, I'll succumb to the evilness that is daily themed threads

Fitting description for today because this place is sucking the life out of me! I want to go riding again. Last weekend was great aside from the weird fish smell all over the place.

hey man i'm kinda feeling you on the homesick thing. i've been here in maryland for over 2 years now but we drove through the outskirts of my old stomping grounds in PA on the way to NYC over the weekend and i kinda started feeling a little homesick. it kinda sucks cause all of my old friends and family are still there but at the same time its kinda nice to get away from where i grew up.

I can see why you'd miss it Sno, I've only been to Arizona once but it was beautiful. Jumping into a pool after a day of riding would be sweet, the closest I ever get is poaching one of the private hot tubs when I'm up at Tremblant.

Good day so far for me, getting our xmas tree tonight which will require copious amounts of eggnog to get it decorated, of course. Been reading a ton, just finished reading some of the literary heavy-weights first books, Thompson's 'Rum Diary", Bukowski's 'Post Office' and Vonnegut's 'Sirens of Titan'. All very entertaining and interesting since I've read their later works and can see the progression in their styles.

nice choice on the rum diary, perp. a good read for sure. if your into thompson, check out chuck klostermann. he is like the present day thompson of pop culture. very similar to the gonzo journalism style that HST created.

perp, so far i've read 2 of his books.

IV: A Decade of Curious People and Dangerous Ideas its a bunch of his previously published essays. he covers everything from britney spears to led zepplin. pretty good read.

Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story (description stolen from amazon): Klostermanfollows up on 2003's Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs by expanding on an article he wrote for Spin about driving cross-country to visit several of America's most famous rock and roll death sites, from the Rhode Island club where more than 90 Great White fans died in a fire, to the Iowa field where Buddy Holly's plane crashed. Along the way, Klosterman opines on rock music, never afraid to offend—as when he interprets a Radiohead album as a 9/11 prophecy or reminds readers that before Kurt Cobain's suicide, many preferred Pearl Jam to Nirvana. The quest to uncover these deaths' social significance is quickly overwhelmed by Klosterman's personal obsessions, especially his agonizing over sexual relationships.

i started with killing yourself to live and its good. i also hear sex, drugs and coco puffs is good as well. i'm prolly gonna read that one next. i'd start with one of those 2.

Thanks TJ, I'll pick that one up this week, sounds like my kind of read.

DCP just reveiled his age, that show was old, dude! This is what he's referring to Paolo:
Reading Rainbow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Personally a discussion of any kind beats the usual "this is my day" boring theme that these threads usually take.
