You read for fun?!

The place where no good punk-asses and aimless hipsters come to discuss a rather lousy comic.

I feel like I heard of that book before I heard of Juno. I should probably check that out. Really liked the voice in Juno.

Yeah, it was on Dave Letterman's must read list, or something. The voice is very similar to Juno, so you'd probably enjoy it.

Cool. I'm trying to decide if I wanna go with something lighter after Wuthering Heights, or do Faulkner. I guess I have at least a week to think about it. But perhaps I'll see if the library has that.

I've been on a big non-fiction kick this past month - mostly books on social issues. Full Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti of Feministing.com, Androphilia by Jack Malebranche, Our Inner Ape by Frans de Waal, and I just bought Sisterhood Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild and Rumspringa: To be or not to be Amish by Tom Shachtman.

My brain is an insatiable slut.

(I'm also listening to "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" on tape in my car.)

Your brain took the slowe train from Philadelphia.

Wuthering Heights is a strange fucking book. I mean, I liked it a lot, but man, it sure don't give a fuck what you think about it.

Now I'm doing some lighter reading: As I Lay Dying. It's funny how early 20th century authors write women.

Yes.

That's what you wanted to hear, right?

Nah, we've met. I know she's hot.

And we do get along, thank you very much.

Wait, who's hot?

Anyway, I have not been reading a biography of Charles Schulz and drawing parallels to my own life!

Charles Schulz had a depressing life.

I'm not sure being a world-famous cartoonist is worth being a depressed/depressing douchebag. Though seeing as I already got one down, I guess I'd accept the other.

Yeah, brilliant thing about that strip is how it unites us all under universal experience of rejection and mediocrity. I think Fillerbunny works much the same way.

You way want to rethink that in light the 3rd Fillerbunny. Let's see what Jhonen has to say in the next one.
