Another BS Night in Suck City




Spurred on by the finish of my mid-terms, I decided to finally finish Nick Flynn's Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. Great book. Read it if you haven't allready.
Nick's life journey is littered with landmines; that he has written such a remarkable testament to self-discovery and the inherent strength of the human spirit, no matter how deeply scarred. Both familiar and real, there are many who know Nick's story intimately. What is remarkable is that such an old tale of self-destruction and the annihilation of family can have a fresh voice to speak yet another truth. This memoir is a gift to others who struggle, like Nick, for a healthy life and family identification. Luan Gaines/2004.
Speaking of books, this Guy will give you a book. Thanks guy! Nice start with McClown and Portis. Ouch....

What's the deal with blogs posting pictures of semi naked women (and dudes, scoff)? I missed the boat on that one. Must be the reason that I'm owing people in this herre musical blog fantasy football league. Obvs, I'm gonna win this one. You might as well trade me your best players now and get it all over with. It'll be faster and easier on you. After I finish swamping the gorillas tonight via MNF, I'll take over first place next week when I skank Kevin's team sans Vick.



Marriotti had a nice article about the Sox a few days ago. What a hypocrit.
WTF is a Hous-stunner, gaylord, that's what it is.

How about friggin Scotty Pod hitting a walk off home run. Some years it just all comes together, which gives me hope for the Cards. The way the season ended was bizzare indeed. Later on Bush Stadium (sad face). Hopefully Houston gets swept, which will make it easier for me to sleep at night.

Lets do a few torrent albums, mostly stuff I'm into ala Kyle. First one is an album link, second one is the torrent file. Listen like it's your job.


The Clientele - Strange Geometry (Pitchfork loved it, I give it a B-)
