for a collecting community, i'd like to recommend the toy collector by james gunn. this is the same james gunn that wrote the comedy-horror film slither, which was a blast. it's hilarious, definitely check it out.

well I went to Barnes & Nobles and found this publication of books called introducing books... introducingbooks.com they are these little small comic book type reference books on a lot of different topics.. check it out.. I got the Nietzsche one, but I think I'm going to pick up more.. they are good bathroom reads, and have some nice drawings to look at too..

"Reading"

Head First PHP and MySQL

I haven't read a book for fun in a very long time. Maybe when I'm done school...

currently Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay (from Showtime's Dexter). fun read but since i know how it's gonna end it's not as good i suppose.

really enjoyed Magical Mystery Tours: My Life with the Beatles by Tony Bramwel. damn what a life.

went back and finished reading stephen king's The Stand, unabridged. thought it was very apropos with swine flu and all. great story telling. i can see why so many love it. i won't bother watching the miniseries though. i was warned.

I should be embarrassed. I'm not. They are fantastic!
