    what are some of the most original and weird books you've read?? right now i need something different but i dont know where to look.

    heres one for you:

    V. by Thomas Pynchon

    i read it about a year ago, and now its sort of stuck in the back in my head, and i remember the storyline as if it were apart of my own distant memory.. have any of you read this book?

    brain fart!
  2. I love this thread http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//biggrin.gif'>

    Heres some i really liked:

    "The beach" by alex garland

    "The tesseract" by the same author(ooops i reveald my self)

    "High Fidelity" by nick hornby
    (Its all about girls...and the evil that they do to us!)

    "Needle in the groove" i dont know who wrote that.

    yeah i was going to read 'high fidelity' but then it just so happened that the movie came to me first (bad chicken bone!)

    it was actually really funny. all these references to obscure records that i own and funny record collecter/DJ habits.. if any of you are DJ's on this board, you should either read or watch the movie.

    heres another good book:

    The Trial by Franz Kafka

    remember, only weird and out-of-the-ordinary books please.

    i'll check out The Tesseract, Tesseract.

  4. If you are interested in music,you really should pick "Needle in the groove"
    I havent actually read it but my sister did and told me what is all about.
    Its about a band that creates an organic device like a music recorder or something.
    They record the music to it and let it play.
    That recorder responds to things as we do and plays the music different each time.alternating the whole thing depending on its condition.
    So they start to expirement with that,they shoot heroin on it to hear how will it the music after that.Sounds interesting.

    you want brain food... eat nothing but raw, uncooked fruits, veggies, nuts, and sprouts for a couple weeks. Once your body gets done detoxing all its waste build up, you will feel like you just snorted 20 ridalins.

    Crime Partners-Donald Goines
    (cuzz it felt like I was watching a Tarantino flick) http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//wink.gif'>

    Brain Food:
    a Turkey and Cheese sandwich, for lunch, will boost your energy, versus 5 steak tacos, which would bring you down and make you sleepy. (during work)
    Blueberries help to circulate your blood, plus theyre a natural antioxidant, a cleanser. I guess thats brain food.

    Anything by Chuck Palahniuk. He wrote the book Fight Club was based on. I don't think he's that talented of a writer, but has twisted ideas.
