last week i read haruki murakami's hard-boiled wonderland and the end of the world
i'm a fan of his and i really liked this
it was imaginative and fantastic without being unbelieveable or distant


i started another read of the great gatsby today


what have you supernerds been dogearing and spilling coffee on lately?

An endless stream of political science textbooks and journal articles.

So tired of this junk.

Tristessa by Jack Kerouac just got done. Now it's time for some theoretical reads, bauhaus or minimalism. But man, i would change my mind like that if i could afford The Curse of Lono by Hunter s today.

Just gave up Richard Floridas "..creative class". Had to know what the fuss was about, but it was too borring when i came pass 4th chapter.

Also a few magazines on a regular basis.
Now I'm reading "Nr 1, dansk hip hop fra 1983 til nu." (a danish hip hop anthology.)

On Wings of Eagles..story about EDS and Ross Perot's privately funded rescue of his companies officers who were arrested in Iran during the fall of the Shah. If half this shit is true it is an incredible story.

Fountainhead is a great book and worth the time.

I'm reading the following:

The Moviegoer - Walker Percy
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius - Dave Eggers

^^ So is a Heartbreaking Work, one of my all-time favorites, although I can't get into Eggers' "You Shall Know Our Velocity".......HWOSG is hilarious

I figured I would give The Fountain Head a try since "Atlas Shrugged" is my #1 favorite.....

Eggers is great, his book of short stories, How We Are Hungry is really good, as is the American Nonrequired Reading anthology he edits

just finished lovemarks.
about halfway thru the world is flat.

bummer to hear about rise of the creative class... that's next on my list.

newsstand reads --- eye, idea, iD, i-D, wax poetics, mass appeal, GQ, pro cycling, print, baseline, tokion (but not anymore ... the new AD has it looking awful and the new publisher has it reading awful) ....

I would be reading Jeff Noon - Falling Out Of Cars, but I lent it to my girlfriend so won't get it back till tomorrow. She left Kelley Armstrong - Stolen here, so I guess I'll probably dig into that a little later

You -all- need some Jeff Noon in your lives

reading mailer's naked and the dead now, his first book. never read mailer before. this may be against supertalk rules, but here goes: it's about WWII.

oh wait, this is ALREADY in supertrash.

um. locked?
