The title comes of much more pompous/heady than the actual read. Noah is a pretty down to earth mellow fellow, and writer. He continues to push the envelope in his personal and public life which has made him somewhat of a current outcast. I got to meditate and eat lunch with him last fall in Chicago, and a good chunk of the time he was making fun of himself. Neat to hear his perspective.

I want to get this book. Sounds like a really great story about a great musician…

I have that, let me know how it is. Does it have more/better content than the All Over but the Shouting book?


#137

I’m trying to branch out. I’m weak at history.

Another Darkness, Another Dawn: A History of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers

Without being boring, it’s a thorough ‘study’ of how the band came together and then became very good at being the Mats, and then started falling apart. Haven’t finished yet, but I’m enjoying it.

I’ve just reread It by Stephen King. It’s truly a tome of epic proportions. Obviously inspired by the recent movie versions, which I thought were a better stab than the 1990 TV movie with Tim Curry

my buddy ryan recommended this to me…it was really fucking good…hit up people online…ask them their age, don’t confirm and then continue to solicit nudes from them, and send them nudes too…then, when you’re ready, make an online comeback and post cool loving caring pics of you w/ your cat!!!

Read that this year too. The author didn’t pull any punches. Even Westerberg comes off as a first rate asshole. Doesn’t diminish my love for their music, but jesus they could be terrible - to each other and anyone who wandered into their path.

How is it? I put a hold on it at the library, but I don’t believe they have copies yet.


#144

Bought a mint copy of this for $3 at a book sale. Great stories obviously.


#145

It’s Heuellebecq lite. Not as deeply creative as Map/Territory, say. I get the feeling he can write this sort of thing in between reruns of Columbo.

But there is always some good writing in there.


#146

Yeah, some good writing but subject matter (French agriculture and farming) is not the most thrilling. It’s a pretty quick read though, so there’s that.

I’m just ready to start this book.

He played hockey here in Kalamazoo for Western Michigan back in the 70’s and I watched his brother Bernie play. Also interested in reading about his clinical depression he suffered from while working for ESPN.
