Re: Whatcha reading?

17) Alice's Adventures In Wonderland - Lewis Carroll. 1865. Audiobook read by Scarlett Johansson. There are times when Johansson sounds like Leanne from King of the Hill when she does her religious puppet show, but that's no downside. I haven't read this since I was in single figures and it's still ...

16) Success Through Stillness - Russell Simmons. Audiobook. 2015. A pretty decent book about meditation from a scummy dude. The messenger doesn't detract from the message, but his somewhat smug pose of having solved all his problems rings false. Meditation is a practice, man. Keep that arrogance out.

15) The Grand Tour: the Life and Music of George Jones - Rich Kienzle. Audiobook. 2015. A second rate breeze through the life of the man who many call the greatest country singer who ever lived. Pretty shallow, but the facts are all there. I liked Jones' honesty and straightforwardness and the book ...

Watched Promising Young Woman last night. Holy smokes, that's a movie that will stick with you.
Great film. So dark, so satisfying.

Re: Nixon!

William Manchester casually makes reference to Nixon's pliable perspective on the truth while relating the Checkers speech: "I know that you wonder whether or not I am going to stay on the Republican ticket or resign. Let me say this: I don't believe that I ought to quit, because I am not a quitter...

I've never heard of Inner City or Lisa Lisa, but I'd choose House 9. House 8 is bound to look like a garbage dump.
Apart from a furious, grudgeful Rollins and MacKaye purposely choosing to clean specific, useless areas to an exacting degree to illustrate a point.

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Music aside, I'd probably be least irritated sharing a home with House 2. Yeah, if they swapped out Joan Jett for the Clash, I’d never leave House 2. In fact, there probably should be an option to make 1 trade. Nah, the Clash would sit around stoned watching war movies as the dishes piled high. The...

14) The Spy Who Loved Me - Ian Fleming. Audiobook. 1962. Points for trying something different. I can see what he's trying to do here, he wants to show Bond from a different perspective and to look at the life of those who are left in his wake. It's a concept not dissimilar to Lower Decks for Star ...

Re: What Are you Listening to Right Now?

Eminem, thought I'd branch out from just The Clash, George Formby, Embrace and Shitallica. There's a lot of hit and miss for me but the songs I like, I love. Really into these, Sing For The Moment Business Guilty Conscience Without Me The Real Slim Shady Any recommendations, I'm all ears. My mate H...

How was the movie?
It was a few years ago, but I remember it being pretty good. No idea how much it follows the book, obvs, but one of those spookier and more unsettling than, like, jump scares and whatnot.
Will probably throw that on one of these days.

Re: Whatcha reading?

13) We Have Always Lived In the Castle - Shirley Jackson. 1962. Audiobook. A brilliant and brilliantly unsettling novel about a twisted wealthy family, wrapped in mental ill health, shunned by the entire town due to a murder of six years previously. So well written and brought to a slow boil where ...
