    I just wasted 90 minutes watching a documentary about Pynchon. Why the hell did I do that.

    I want a Ruggles-update from Arco. Through ATD yet? Excited about Inherent Vice?

    OK, I liked the snoop cover, but it had mandolin.

    Reading ATD was like looking through someone's sketch book. The talent was amazing. The unwillingness to finishes the sketches into a developed novel indicated either an inability to do so or an arrogance that he deemed even his unfinished work readable. The fact that I made it though 500 pages shows what talent he has, but I was unwilling to go though another 500 pages of a collection of characters contained in the same spine.

    If IV is 500 pages or less I will check it out. I actually do enjoy his writing.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    Against the Day. I agree that it is odd that there is no V in title. Like AVD or the such.

    47910....I only do fiction anymore. And networking tech manuals. I am not proud of this...just can't take anyone's ideas about anything serious seriously these days.



    Cripes. Packers and Pacers getting worse results as their seasons progress.

    You should make an exception for Gladwell. You can bang it out on a long plane ride.

    47913...Muo'layo. You have to use them. If a knowledge of the local language is all that stands between you and ordering a beer, you have motivation. Immersion FTW. My experience anyway.


    Packers score. Hooah. They need all 4 wins on the way out of the season. It's doable. Creampuff schedule, somewhat.

    I am not recommending this. Just how I learned whatever I did manage to learn.

    Nobody gives a shit about the Fudge Packers. They won't survive this Houston game.

    They suck. And so do you.
