31 FAIRLY OBSCURE LITERARY MONSTERS

Last one is Kafka's father, which made me laugh.


Which reminds me:

Over the weekend, while Mr. Comrade and the Nigerian Princess were down in Brooklyn staying at La Principessa's house to go to Afropunk (apparently, Grace Jones was the outstanding act; Lauryn Hill's set suffered from a terrible mix; and La Principessa wasn't terribly impressed when her union sister dragged her to go see Suicidal Tendencies), I went over The Black Goblin's house and retrieved my turntable and one of my racks of records. So, yeah, I spent a lot of this past weekend alphabetizing my vinyl collection.

Feels really good to have my turntable, my records and myself all under the same roof. It's been...six years I think.

From Urizen's Facebook page:

How Much Of A Music Snob Are You?
Please take a break from alphabetizing your vinyl collection and take this quiz.

Only 48.

The Stooges--Fun House


I still haven't gotten any further with Delaney than The Jewels of Aptor but I think of you, Lord Dice, every time I sit down to play D&D (which isn't as often as it used to be ever since I handed over the DM reins).

The teenager in the group named his dwarf fighter Dhalgren. Actually, I don't know how he spells it, and I'd bet that he hasn't read any Delaney. He took Improved Unarmed Combat and specializes in kicking shiznit. The DM ran all of the characters through individual adventures at the beginning of the campaign and awarded each character with a unique magic item. Dhalgren received a pair of boots of testicular connection. I have no idea what the book is about, but I suspect Delaney would approve.

A bit late, but interview with Michael Moorcock in The New Statesman (that's some kinda commie rag, ain't it, Limey?) about The Whispering Swarm which was pretty interesting and given the clickbait (he only talks about J.R.R. for one paragraph) title:

Michael Moorcock: “I think Tolkien was a crypto-fascist”

Doyle totally ripped off Sherlock Holmes from the Dupin stories.

IIRC, Sherlock thought Dupin was a rank amateur.

One story left in The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Plus, read some more Hawthorne and Whitman. "Young Goodman Brown" was pretty badass.

Been having a terribly hard time finding a copy of Hawthorne's The Twice-Told Tales so I settled and picked up a copy of Penguin's Selected Tales and Sketches. I have absolutely no recollection of ever reading the story "Wakefield," which, some may recall, is about a Londoner who leaves his wife and spends the next twenty years living in a house a street over before returning home. But I must have, because I definitely remember this sentence:

It is perilous to make a chasm in human affections; not that they gape so long and wide--but so quickly close again!

Oh yeah, finished A Game of Thrones today. [Sobs]

Which explains the lack of funny.

Not much of a Seinfeld fan myself, but the joke wasn't that he was making out with his date at a Schindler's List screening but that he was caught making out with his date at said screening by his aunt or something and became a family pariah until, at least, the end of the episode.

Being able to point to a mostly useless degree while trying to find a job?

(he says with some experience).

But you, based on the evidence of this thread, read books.

In other news, I didn't realize the auteur of Bubba-hotep wrote novels. Let us know how it goes, Kirth!

In other other news, I resolved my quandary, and I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier. I don't believe my vow to not read A Song of Ice and Fire until either etc. or etc. ever included not watching the tv show. That was just tacked on later as a given when they later made a tv show. So, I'll just watch the tv show and put the books away until either etc. or etc.! Huzzah. I wish all of my life's problems were so easily solved. But I'll finish the first one because I'm only about 100 pages to the end and, don't know if you've heard this, but it's pretty f&+@ing good.

In other other other news, that Ishiguro sounds pretty interesting, Treppa. [Adds to list]


Huzzah!


My butt hurts.

'King Solomon's Mines' by H. Rider Haggard. I quite liked it. There were jokes about trousers in it..

I quite liked it, too. Meant to read some of the sequels/other shiznit by HRH, but never got around to it.

I should have both The Return of Sherlock Holmes and A Game of Thrones done by the end of the week.

Finished watching the first season with La Principessa while in Brooklyn over the weekend. Kind of in a quandary. If I read first and then watch, I get mad at the show; if I watch first and then read, I get bored because I already know what will happen. I swear, I didn't have these kinds of problems when I was single.

Bought La Principessa a copy of The Name of the Wind when I was down there in July. I've noticed that she hasn't read a single book the entire time that we've been dating. Told her she had to read it by the end of the summer. She agreed, but I don't think it's going to happen. What's the f&~$ing point in having a Master's Degree in English if you're not going to read books?!?

If I had discretionary income and still went to shows, I'd be ecstatic right now:

Classic Zombies Lineup to Reunite for 'Odessey & Oracle' Tour

As it is, I'll just listen to my boxset.

Odessey and Oracle


More Vashti Bunyan


I didn't know who Ms. Beaton was until I looked her up.

I finished The Scarlet Letter; it was pretty awesome, I thought. Will read the attached "The Custom-House" tomorrow.

My love of Moby-Dick is well attested to in this thread. Also started The Return of Sherlock Holmes.

Finished the third disc of Game of Thrones and realized that I am only 50 pages ahead in the novel. La Principessa's bringing her boxset up, see how far we get. Don't know if I've mentioned this before or not, but I've decided to watch Game of Thrones before reading A Song of Ice and Fire. Otherwise, the tv show just pisses me off.

Pretty fascinating article from The New York Times Magazine last year.

I haven't even listened to the music yet.


Not in my public interlibrary loan system's catalog, alas.

He did. I wrote 'Alone'; I meant 'Awakes'

[Mind is blown]

I didn't realize such a thing existed.

[Mind comes back to him]

Eight chapters in, I'm pretty sure I haven't read The Scarlet Letter before. Now that I think of it, I failed Junior English the first time. Hmmm. Anyway, yeah, I like it thus far.

Went onto Facebook to post a new youtube link for Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa and ran across this:

Khmer Oldies Rock-n-Roll- VOL.01


I haven't seen that, no. And, to be honest, Earth Girls... should have been three to four times better.

Also, I never realized it was a Julien Temple film before.


CCR--Cosmo's Factory

and

John Cale--"Barracuda"


Finished watching The Dead but there doesn't seem to be a trailer on youtube. :(

Also watched

Dead Man which I didn't enjoy as much as I did when I was 18;

Dillinger which is awesome and features Warren Oates running around screaming "I'm John Dillinger!" and sexually assaulting Michelle Phillipps of The Mamas and Papas fame;

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari which makes this post actually international; and

Earth Girls Are Easy.

Tonight my leftie coalition group is holding a screening of Pride so I can finally cross that off my to-see list.


Finished Hardy two nights ago. Cried for an hour.

Finished Brackett this morning. It was highly enjoyable.

Also read,

Black History and the Class Struggle, No. 21: Obama: CEO of Racist American System

and Black History and the Class Struggle, No. 24: 150 Years Since the Emancipation Proclamation--Finish the Civil War! For Black Liberation Through Socialist Revolution! which isn't on the internet, I guess.

Next up, the trials and tribulations of Hester Prynne which I last read in Junior English. Or did I? I didn't read a lot of the books that were assigned to us back then...
