Can't say that I have, Marc. I love a good vampire tale, but can't stand the Anne Rice-style snoozefests...

Anybody read Jemiah Jefferson? She's an author of vampire novels. I just picked up a couple of her books.

Dr. Oridniaire-- Yes, the un-edited version has a foreward by Ginny and is a much more complete story. Quite enjoyable! It's interesting to read that one, and then compare it to a 1960's "chopped to pieces in editing" version.

Usually you can find the un-edited in Trade Paperback.

Tristan- whose read everything RAH had published, save a few magazine stories that he/his wife refused to have republished.

"OK, one more time:

Colin Wilson: British buy who writes books about weird stuff.

Robert Anton Wilson: American guy who writes books about weird stuff.

Two different people. Colin W's middle name is "Henry". "

Thanks, BJ, I tend to confuse them because R.A. Wilson mentions C.Wilson. To add to the confusion there is a science-fiction writer named Robert Charles Wilson! ("The Perseids and other stories".)

And speaking of SF, did you guys know that they have printed the uncut version of "Stranger in a strange land" with some 60K words edited from the '61 edition?

I heard it was formulaic garbage masquerading as a story... and I believe everything I hear!!!

John Woo's new film WINDTALKERS is well worth seeing. It may be his best American film to date.
And it features a rare good performance by Nicolas Cage.

BlackJack,

I'm new here, so I don't mean to intrude, but I have heard from many others who feel the same about Henry Miller as you do. I'm curious why you want to slap him? I suggest his "The Collosus of Maroussi". It's lucid where Tropic of Cancer is self-indulgent. It's humble where Cancer is arrogant. It's also useful just as a travelogue of Greece.

A book that definitely changed my life is "The History of Sexuality" by Michel Foucault. It's the most thoroughly researched and comprehensive study of the notion of sexual taboo I've ever encountered. It's so practical it's almost not a philosophy text! Through extensively dissecting Victorian era concepts of sexuality, Foucault proves that our current view of human sexuality is a twisted, unnatural, and unhealthy result of those in the Victorian era making sex into such an object of attention and fear. It's an incredible read.

"In context, the Latin paganus is best translated as "bupkin" or "hick"."

I have no doubt Romans who thought their shit didn't stink held it in their heads that way, but that doesn't mean it's "best" translated that way.

"It wasn't meant nicely."

By me it was.

"Compare with "Urbane"."

My point exactly. I'll take Jethro Beaudine over Mrs. Drysdale every time.

The Invisible Dork is real! I'VE SEEN HIM! HE MOONED ME!!! Then he tripped over the coffee table, spilled my Nasty Sebor Strong, and asked for a pair of suspenders.

Remind me to thank him for spilling the Nasty Sebor Strong.

Written by Crockett Johnson? As in Crockett, played by Don Johnson? Can you say "Miami Vice"?

Head, I love you.

Is it a coincidence that I just created the campari-piss at the same time you posted that one ?!

PAPELUCHO EN LA CLINICA. Funniest book about an 8-year old ever written, IMO.

On the other hand, if churches can use grape juice instead of wine, why can't I use a tofu dog instead of a Ballpark Frank?



Indeed! I mean if God can turn a cracker into flesh, without making it stop tasting like a cracker, who are we to argue?
