Me ?


it´s        1) Carol Karlsen - The Devil in the Shape of a Woman: Witchcraft in Colonial New England , The Salem witch trials has always facinated me.
            2) Iain M Banks - Use Of Weapons, a re-read, Iain M Banks, along with Neal Stephenson, is my fave writer currently writing Sci-Fi.
            3) Erwin Neutzsky-Wulff - 9999, Danish occultist/satanist Neutzsky-Wulff´s latest novel. Weird, unsetteling, paranoid and druggish. Great fun !

    Wow, I thought people only pretended to read Bukowski and Nietzsche so they could keep up a cool image for cocktail parties.  I'm impressed, Joe!

    I spend to much time on the net to read a real book. Last ones I've read during my holidays:
    * Does The Sound in my head bothers you ?  By Steven Tyler: 80% of the book is about drugs, 10% raving about the lyrics he wrote (lost count on how many pages you can see a passage of "Dream On". The rest is about how he wrote the drum riff of "Walk this way" (but no mention of Run DMC), his 10" fat cock and some anecdotes about the music.

    * I am Ozzy by Ozzy Osbourne and Chris Ayres: 66% of the book is about drug and booze, the beginning with Sabbath is quite interesting, a small part about Rhoads. The only phrase about Jake E Lee is "after Jake E Lee has left the band". I think Zaak name is mentioned twice, may be 3 times. There's a passage also where he says Bob Daisley never tried to sit and talk with him but keep suing over and over, while he thinks Don Arden (Sharon father, who seems like a bog crook) was also involved in this. Of course there are some parts with Sharon, so this book is quite Evil. Although you'll learn that Ozzy was sometimes beating his wife, so drug+booze hasn't completely disconnected his brain. Quite entertaining, as Ozzy did real crazy stuff, like shitting in an hotel lobby then saying to the receptionist "it's OK, we have reserved a room here"...
