Yeah I don't remember it being particularly entertaining, and it was pretty different from the books. I mean, they named it after the second book, but it clearly doesn't take place there because there are  other people and, like, an actual town. But yeah, I never really found it interesting enough to watch, and even if I did watch it my the-book-is-always-better-than-the-movie bias would probably carry over anyway.

Love one another.

I want to know your thoughts on it. I thought it was very dry and not the most entertaining TV show ever.

  

What was called "family entertainment" in the world of 1970s American television...it was pretty bland. I liked the little girl tripping (and getting right back up!) while running downhill in the title sequence (best blooper of that sort since George in AHDN !) 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Agreed, read as "most notable example since..."

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Yes, implying that it is more notable than George's fall...

But it doesn't matter, I get what you mean, I was just teasing. 😉

Edit: I was wrong, you were right, I can't read, I am sorry.

I am currently reading Slash's Autobiography. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

Tremendously entertaining book. I love autobiographies, and that is probably the wildest one I've ever read.

It's a great book. I am re-reading it as well as  abunch of other book on Guns N' Roses for research on a project I am working on. 

If you love autobiographies and you liked Slash's book then I highly recommend Duff's book It's So Easy (And Other Lies) as it is another great autobiography.

I'm rereading The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. Pretty good book, but nowhere near as good as I'll Give You The Sun. Oh, and the main character's name is Lennon. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Love one another.
