    ****I have to receive your book first. I have been part of this 12oz Postcard Project 2 times, both times I have sent out, both times I haven't received shit. I am not going to fuck you over, and I'm sure you will not have the intention to, but sometimes sending something "slips your mind" or "you'll do it later" until a year has gone by. I just need to protect myself.

    I think this is a good idea. While I'm too tired to entertain the thought, I just wanted to let you know I like the idea.

    House of Leaves would be damn hard to explain correctly. I enjoyed it a lot... If you like fucked up shit you'll like it too. --I recommend it


    When I Was Five I Killed Myself .. the guy wrote it as if he were 14. Nothing stimulating as far as sentence structure or anything like that, just your basic english. That sounds retarded, hopefully you understand what I'm saying. -- I sort of recommend it.. but not really.

    It is 5:50 am so cut me some slack.

    I'm half way though the first of the Dark Tower series.
    Looks like I'll be busy for a while. But good idea.

    yeah.. it sucks needing reading material but not having any money... they should make some place where you can go get books for free and then return them when you're done. :nope:
