    Love: as a subtle emotion

    Hehe, you're probably right, my darling (that's Genie). Yeah, it's probably the most moving thing in the Universe, isn't it, cFaniak? That's what I like about Love, Porthos - the many facets it has. You can look at it on the small scale as a connection between the two people concerned (or...

    Pope Rises from Dead and Eats Bowl of Spaghetti

    Haha, good analogy. (is this spam?)

    Bloody hell! Are you Bill Gates? I could go on Amazon and figure out how much you've spent for myself, but... I can't be assed. I haven't heared of any of those books or authors, so I haven't a clue what you're into, but on your next trip to the rainforest, I recommend you buy One Hundred...

    Yeah, while trying to find that DVD Novella mentioned, I bumped into that on Amazon. It sounds amazing (and it's got a relatively nice picture on the front cover), but it's a bit more expensive than the average DVD on there, so I think I'll wait a bit to see if it comes down in price. I think it...

    What are you listening to Right now?

    Wow, Steely Dan are playing Josie. She's the pride of the neighbourhood.

    Love: as a subtle emotion

    Yeah, that was pretty moving. A bit too moving for my liking, though - I think my chances with Genie have gone for good now. Noooooooooo. :(

    best concert

    Cheers for the informative stuff, dude. Yeah, I'm listening to American Beauty (courtesy of downloaded mp3s, unfortunately), at the moment, and I think I'll splash out on the CD soon. I also love Candyman from that album. On Amazon, American Beauty and Workingman's Dead are right at the top...

    Pope Rises from Dead and Eats Bowl of Spaghetti

    As much as I love you, Hollis, I don't go along with your idea that death is a tragic loss of life. It's just natural, and the only thing you can guarantee to happen in your life. The most recent death of a person I respect immensely, has been John Peel, but I didn't 'have a minute of silence to...

    Not the same person after a book.

    I did! Hehe. Sorry, I couldn't resist. Well remembered, though. It's nice to know someone pays attention to my ramblings. :D

    Love: as a subtle emotion

    That's pretty interesting, Spatha. I hadn't thought about it like that before. I'll have to think about it properly before I tell you I agree or disagree. I haven't heared/seen the word 'austrolopithicene' before, though. I'm going to have to look that one up. I'm just a little perturbed that...

    best concert

    Out of the two concerts I've been to, my favourite band, Slint, easily takes first prize. I saw them at the Forum, in London, on the 2nd of March, this year. They completely blew my face off. Out of their entire library (of admittedly only two LPs and one EP) they played everything except for...

    Not the same person after a book.

    That sounds a bit like a movie called Bully, Mr. Straits. I don't know if you've seen it, but it's basically the same job description, except the eventual desceased was a bullier of some members of the group. The book that stands out as having changed my perspective on the world is: The Lord...

    How many times.......

    Before I started reading as a 'serious' activity a few years ago, I re-read my whole bookcase of Famous Fives, Secret Sevens, multiple times, and more recently I've read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings quite a few times. I'm sort of re-reading The Silmarillion for the second time aswell...

    Strangest novel

    I asked my mum this question two days ago. She said she didn't know, I said The Dice Man is the strangest book I've read. It doesn't seem half as strange after reading about all your books, though.

    Yawn....

    Hehe, glad to hear it. Yeah, I don't really think too strongly about it, because drugs don't enter my life in the slightest. But, I think they should be legalized. That way, they could be more easily controlled and people wouldn't have to go about robbing to pay for their next fix. If I were...

    Vladimir Nabokov: Lolita

    Yeah, I'm not sure if this is, because I haven't read (or seen) either, but my sister watched a movie t'other day, called Leon and there's a paedophilic relationship in that. I didn't watch it properly, don't know if it's a book, and can't compare it properly to Lolita at all because I haven't...

    Newbie :)

    Oh right, I see. Yeah, I get all my books from Amazon aswell. I reckon I must have saved over a hundred quid by getting my stuff from there! I don't like 'happening' places, anyway. I've heared that Manchester is very 'happening' but I don't bother to get myself involved. I want to move to...

    What are you listening to Right now?

    Guapo by Bastro, from their album, Diablo Guapo is funking out of my headphones.

    Newbie :)

    Well, I really like Perdido Street Station, but if you'd asked me a few weeks ago, I would have been more enthusiastic about it. It's a pretty bleak book, and at times I just wish he'd show a bit of sunshine, but it's pretty good. I bought a load of books at the same time as Perdido... and have...

    Yawn....

    It was on the 'People who can't read in cars... WIMPS?' thread that I first set eyes on your beautiful name. Drug seeking? Yikes. As a medical person (and as a regular person, of course), what do you think about legalising drugs? Hi Sir Wabbit! Long time, no exchange of message. How are...
