No! Not Eminem! ANYTHING but Eminem!
nu bookzAs an early Father's Day present, I asked my wife and son to come with me to Eureka for the afternoon. I wrote until 1PM, so it's not like I was slacking. Primary point of this trip: Borders Bookstore. I've griped about this before, but we have to drive 90 minutes to get to an actual bookstore. I tried to find books by some of the folks I've linked to. Sad to say I couldn't find anything by Gwenda Bond or Scott Westerfield, but they did have John Scalzi's Old Man's War (but I already own that!) Nor did they have Keith Pirie's Digging Up Donald, but I'm beginning to despair of finding that in a US store. Which reminds me, I need to give Keith's book a good plug here sometime soon. Here's what we got: make love!* *the bruce campbell way by Bruce Campbell gun, with occasional music by jonathan lethem (what's with all the lower case letters, anyway?) Tales of Neveryon by Samuel R. Delany Nightfall Isaac Asimov & Robert Silverberg plus a Catherine Asaro fantasy (The Charmed Sphere) and a Piers Anthony fantasy (Being a Green Mother), both for Jake. Surprisingly, Nightfall was his pick, too. I say 'surprisingly' cuz he usually doesn't read SF (unless Piers Anthony wrote it).
muzakI'm still trying to recover from the shock of learning that our government has used pop tart Christina Aguilera's music as a form of torture at Gitmo.
I'm a genie in a bottle baby You gotta rub me the right way honey I'm a genie in a bottle baby Come, come, come on and let me out
Hey, I can't make shit like that up. Look:Message to the Feds: if you ever want to break me, put me in a padded room with a continuous loop of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. Hell, just show me the CD and I'll talk. D.
