Re: "Please kill yourself..."

To quote Morrissey, "...why won't you die?" To quote Ed Hamell, "So you ask me what I think/I think Ann Coulter's got a cunt that stinks/Let's engage her in debate/Let's make her deny it..." If you haven't checked out Hamell on Trial's song "Coulter's Snatch," I can't ...

Mission of Burma-The Obliterati How is this 'un? Should the slavish reviews be taken at face value? I love Burma, consider their reunion a miracle, and have been blown away 3 or 4 times by their live shows (since 2002...I was too young to have caught them the first time around) but I still remain d...

Hope they enjoy whine with their cheese. Well put. Upon rereading my last post, I thought "Man, I gotta meet cooler women." Truth be told, I don't mean to make it sound like the women I know are all dismissive of the finer works of American literature. Like I said, they're all well-read, ...

As for the rest, just because the author is male doesn't make the books guy/dick lit. It's not just that the authors are men that makes it dick lit; the books generally approximate the tone of a guy in a bar telling drinking (or in the case of Dr. Thompson, drug) stories. I based my answer largely ...

Clearly, Peg should have maintained the services of Macca's publicist -- or whomever kept this under wraps for the duration of the marriage -- in the divorce settlement.

I don't think there's any male parallel to chick lit, but if there were, we might have to call it "chick lit." Well, after the surprise success of High Fidelidity (the Nick Hornby book, not the REO Speedwagon record) there was a feeble attempt by the pubishing industry to create a literar...

My favorite part of the book was when he was in Texas (I think), and goes to a little league ball game one summer evening. His description of the young players, the spectators and the American Night makes me almost cry whenever I've read it. I can just see Kerouac sitting in the bleachers of some s...

BUT David Mitchell is fucking GENIUS. Pick up his latest Black Swan Green . I'm almost done, but I was in love after a mere twenty-five pages. So good... Seconded...My little sister just sent me a copy of it, and I can't put it down. It's my first experience with Mitchell, and it's rocking my world...

What did one deadhead say to the other deadhead when they ran out of acid? "Man, this band really sucks!" This is my favorite joke ever. And I've got to join the chorus of dissent; I never saw it. My beef with the Dead was the same as my beef with Phish, Blues Traveller, etc -- If a band ...
