No doubt. He's one guy that I have always wanted to meet. If I were going to start a religion, he would be God.

I talked with him on the phone for a college class called "sports and the mass media".

I reread GGM's One Hundred Years of Solitude this week. Always a pleasure.

Beav, Eco is the opposite of mindless.

Dude, you never finished the Wolfe titles....read that, though, it's not mindless either.

Ever heard of Dan Simmons? He writes good Sci-Fi, but it's not on par with Wolfe....easier read......check out "Hyperion".

I'm watching Babe and I'm not ashamed.


(I was 8 or 9 when it came out so it has a soft spot in my heart)

I've read that and Love in the Time of Cholera. Great stuff, but I have to be in the right frame of mind...you don't read GGM on a whim.

Very cool! What did you talk about?


I was close with my grandfather as a young boy, but he died so long ago that I can't remember his actual voice. When I try to imagine it, he sounds like Ernie.

I like to meet guys like that and listen to their stories.....I never get tired of it. I once was at a party with Art Spander, the long-time sportswriter, and listened to him and picked his brain for like 2 hours. It was great.

You can tell it's a great book when it stays with you long after you've read it, and both of them have, for me.

Have you ever read The Brothers K by David James Duncan or any of Michael Chabon's books?

Yeah, Wolfe is far from mindless. Maybe I'll read some Harry Potter. I'm talking mindless, dude. But engaging.




Yo, could you imagine if Unicron got a hold of a bottle of Powerjuice? Fuck. I don't even want to think about it. I'd shit when he looked around the office giving the deathstare. And then I'd be praying, in my soiled pants, that he is NOT going to reiterate that "that is how you fucking go powerjuice." I'd probably ddie on the spot, of fear.

Before you go with Potter, seriously, read up on Hyperion by Simmons and see if it looks good to you....that, or Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susannah Clarke.
