Last night  started Being Wrong by Katherine Schultz, and so far it is excellent. You wouldn't think that a book about wrongness would be LOL-funny, but it is.

Now reading XTRM by Jan Kallevik. It's about the antifascists who went into the streets of Oslo to rid them of neo-nazis in the 90's. fascinating read.

"Sifting through the madness for the word, the line, the way"
Poetry by a fella named Charles Bukowski.

Recommended by and on loan from friend. He warned me not to read it in a good mood I don't want spoiled. Know nothing about it or the author. Can't wait!

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

When it is truly time,
And if you have been chosen,
It will do it by
Itself and it will keep on doing it
Until you die or it dies in
You.

There is no other way.

And there never was.

So you want to be a writer?
By Charles Bukowsi


I like this Charles Bukowski.

Said in the copyright notice that this work is from an archive of his that he had reserved for publication after his death. Here we go then.

You go read that Bukowski. You go read it, and you love it.




Bukowski understands you.

Hm... maybe I should finish the book before I get cheeky.



But I REALLY thought about getting cheeky just then.
