It sure is a good read, Annadog40. I keep finding little gems. This place is HUGE!

 

There are a lot of typo's, punctuation is lacking at times, some of the content is debatable, and to be honest large chunks could be cut out to make it all a bit of a better read. Some twit has contributed 5645 entries by himself and most of it is complete garbage.blue-meanie

You silly little meanmistermustard. We need you. Remember, we just voted an award for you.

 

Amazing! You make a little quip, slip into an alcohol slumber at midnight… and this is how the children play!

Do we need to start a "What are you drinking right now thread?"

When I use the slide-out physical keyboard on my phone, it doesn't do predictive text. That's the mode I stay in. I can't stand those virtual touch keyboards. I have a Samsung Captivate Glide. I bought another one to keep as a back up. I can't live without my REAL keyboard – call me old-fashioned, I don't care.

trcanberra, are any music groups are mentioned in your encyclopedia?

golden alcohol slumber? 

(I had to.)

 

Anyway, I'm reading The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac for a class. I don't think I'll be able to decide whether I like or dislike it until I finish it. 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I saw his book, On the Road, the other day and I almost bought it. I really wish I had now :(

^^^ That is on my reading list. Once I finish 6 other books and after The Bell Jar by Plath, On The Road is next.

I'm trying to avoid biographies (specifically Beatles) because all of 2013 I just read books on The Beatles and I believe my English essays are lacking because I haven't read any proper books in over a year :)

I've been avoiding Beatles books for the past year because of the 'Tune In' book (which I'm slowly getting through). I've been reading quite a wide range of stuff in the past few months. I read this book

which isn't really the kind of thing I'd usually read, but a lot of people were talking about it so I got it. I quite enjoyed it, actually.

I've got a Led Zep book to begin reading, but as I've got two books on the go for me and three for school, I think I might not be reading it for a little while.

Its a pretty good read, for it has a little more in depth of what happened during their two weeks in the states.

I read "On the Road" as part of my preparations for a vacation to San Francisco. One of the highlights of that trip was sitting in on an author reading at City Lights bookstore. That was SO AMAZING being a part of that long, great tradition.

I'm still digesting audiobooks while I drive to and from work.  I completely recommend it to people who want to tackle more non-fiction and are afraid that the topics might be too dry.

My latest love is the ongoing podcasts by Dan Carlin called "Hardcore History".  The shows run from 15 minutes all the way up to almost 5 hours apiece (the average length is 45 mins to an hour) and he covers a different era in history on each program and uses it to parallel things happening in modern history or to showcase similarities with events far in the past.

If anyone is actually interested, go here: http://www.dancarlin.com/disp.php/hharchive .

Shows can be streamed or downloaded as mp3s.  All Americans should probably listen to show 49 from July.  It's an excellent dissertation on America's complicated role as a world power and the consequences of it becoming such a great force in such a short amount of time.

E is for 'Ergent'.

^^ It sounds good, I'll have a look at that. Thanks for sharing :)

Is it on American history or worldwide, though?

I'm currently reading 'Many Years from Now'. I'm really enjoying it. I like hearing random stories and other things you don't quite hear in interviews. I also just finished 'John' by Cyn. It was very sad to read personally, but a good read nonetheless. Next I'm going to read 'Tune In' by Mark Lewisohn. I heard that that book is the best book about the Beatles without any of them taking part in the writing.

I just read all of 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' from 8:30 to 11:30pm. I still enjoy it immensely that and a couple of Beatles songs get a mention which is always nice

Reading Macbeth for school. Independently I'm reading The Valley of Fear, one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes books, which I love. I'm also a Crichton fan, and just finished The Andromeda Strain for the third time.
