got a tv.

and there isn't a lot of good shit to watch anymore anyways.

 

i might catch something on the history channel or id channel.

watch the news almost daily, but the rest of the shit is stupid reality shows.

 

thats why im over tv....even movies arent what they used to be...not enough storyline and too much special effects and action.

 

thats why id rather read anyways.

Pretty interesting book. It's an autobiography of dude named Jack Black. I was in the autobiography section a while ago when I saw a staff's recommendation that said "Jack Black's autobiography" and I thought it would be funny and realized I didn't know anything about him. But I was thinking of the actor :P Anyway, picked it up and realized it's a different one in the 1920's and I guess he inspired hella beat generation people like Kerouac and Burroughs n' shiiiiit. It's pretty interesting, he's just some kid/ young guy hooking up with all these burglars and learning the trade, hopping trains and smoking opium.

Also picking away at this. Mostly trying to read a chapter or two right before I go to bed so I can get scared haha People always say this book is scary, and I've never been scared by a book, so I thought I'd give it a try. It's admittedly a little creepy so far. Also, never seen the classic movie before either, so I wanted to read the book before I saw it.

welcome to the world of idiots, brought to you by technology and people like gasfacevictim

 

stuff read on paper is retained better, and read with greater comprehension, than stuff read on a screen

gfv, i'd suggest you read this article, but you seem like too much of a doofus to comprehend it, much less finish the whole thing.

i would usually rather read,

but tv has gotten good lately in my opinion.

maybe you're watching the wrong shit. cuz i don't have cable.

but frontline has put out some of their best shit in years lately,

and finally we are getting away from cop dramas with cool shows like GoT and orphan black.

Welcome to the world of women that take themselves too seriously and can't spot a joke when they see one.

 

Neg yourself, faggot.

 

hm, you sur took that neg mad serious tho bra.

 

pull out your butt plug, cuz if that was a joke, it was super lame and in no way indicative of humor.

^ omg my friend juuuussst let me borrow his copy of Dune the other day. I'm excited to read it because I think someone on this thread recommended it. I think Fist? idk :O Heard great things about it, but it seems pretty dense so I'll have to pay attention.

Just finished this book. I found it interesting. The only other book I've read by J.D. Salinger is "The Catcher in the Rye" and I liked it a lot when I was a teenager because I was hella angstyoner. I still like it today for nostalgic reasons and I think it's a lot more adventurous than I perceived it to be when I first read it. ANYWAY, I DIGRESS, "Franny and Zooey" is about two siblings that come from a prestigious family where all the children are essentially geniuses. Most of it is made up of a handful of dialogue parts with minimal narration. Usual ranting and raving like J.D. Salinger's works, but a bit less whiny and angsty than Holden Caulfield.

I'm also currently picking away at this book. It's written in rural Russia between 1916-1917. Pretty interesting perspective on the times and culture, as well a good amount of humor thrown in. Most of the peasants he aids have no concept of modern medicine so it's funny to see the interaction between a well educated young city boy and people that have little contact with the world outside of their small eastern european village. The chapters are neatly packaged into their own events so I think one could even skip around and read them in a different order if they really wanted.

 

I had to start over The Shining because I haven't read it in a while haha

started this books the other day.. downloaded it after a buddy mentioned it.

 

got to this part:

"Practice the art of nonfinishing" the author says, "Starting something doesn't automatically justify finishing it. If you are reading an article that stinks, put it down and don't pick it back up."

 

 

took his advice....fuck this book I'm going into space.

i love that my boss doesn't care about hours.

you get your work done, you leave.

 

that means most of the time i work about 7 hours.

sometimes 6. sometimes 9.

i'm great at time management though, and get a lot done.

 

good points though, for sure.

this 'workweek' is good in some ways (for families) terrible in many others.
