Human Remains by Elizabeth Haynes. Very entertaining, creepy read.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. Saw it at B&N, remembered watching the movie years ago, and bought it. A good quick read.

Little Children by Tom Perrotta. Again, saw the movie some time ago. Picked up the book at a used bookstore. Was good, but oddly enough, I found the movie much more compelling. Ending in the book was so anticlimactic, while the ending in the movie was far better.

Currently reading The Night Listener by Armistead Maupin. Yep, saw the movie already, but thought it would be a good read nonetheless.

That rule in the competition is a bit confounding since I received the original and remixes last year as a promo. Buying it would be redundant. It may be a ploy to boost sales/interest, which is all well and good imo, but I wouldn't be too upset if I were to win then get disqualified based on that rule. OK, I would probably be miffed, but it's not like I haven't thought about it.

I've been in a production dry spell for about 6 months and I've only recently started enjoying it again. So, ultimately it was helpful to work on the remix as a way of recharging creativity.

Hmm. Recharging Creativity. Maybe I can sell that one to Christian Paduraru....

Of the recent books I've read, these were the most entertaining...

The Passage by Justin Cronin. Somewhat King-esque, but less heavy-handed while the characters and plot being evenly detailed. I don't know how I feel about the film rights being purchased by Ridley Scott, but it could easily translate to film. I did pick up the sequel The Twelve but have yet to start it.

Raw by Mark Haskell Smith. Simply, just a fun and humorous read.

Thanks y'all.

The Blondfire tune is one of those guilty pleasures. I like the alt-pop feel of it. smile

A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin. Fantastic. All caught up now. He'd better finish off The Winds of Winter soon, dammit.

The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood. Very good, but not altogether different than a lot of stories out there. Would make a fair film if done right, though.

The Dinner by Herman Koch. Easy but mediocre read... finished it in one day. Nothing exciting or engrossing happens until about halfway through.

Get them on Maury.

Another really good read from earlier this year: Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.  It's a bit nostalgic... back to the 80's– but without the glamour or glitz– with a slight YA nod. Kinda poetic on the whole.

Still not recorded, as it has to be New York. A "Live in" can't happen without Smallman's attendance.


Going to see him in Boston on Friday night... but I highly doubt it would be that.

Still possible, I suppose.

Definitely an entertaining read, but far from cerebral.

Might give this a look, just finished his "22.10.63", a bit of a weird time-travel story back to the JFK assassination.


If you enjoy the time travel thing, try Sean Farrell's The Man in the Empty Suit. Very entertaining.

Has anyone read any of The Dark Tower series? Thinking of giving that a go next, seeing as I enjoyed Doctor Sleep so much.

Read and loved the first three books; I got about 150 pages into Wizard and Glass and it bored the living shit out of me.

tenaglia is rubbish

Lol clean your ears out son


Never understood the fascination with Tenaglia. His mixes bore the hell out of me.

I know some would argue that to appreciate him you should experience him live. I've always believed that mixes and compilations are representative of the dj's tastes, why the hell would I want to pay to be bored for 10+ hours?  Do I really need to hear "Be Yourself" again? Or any of his most notable tracks, re-hashed, with whatever soon-to-be pop standard floating over it? No.

and, I still haven't figured out why I like this:

Been getting ready for a move, and I found this mix from years ago.
I believe I did this back in late 1998...

Just finished The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen.....good read.

I struggled with that one, and it won. Bored me about 200 pages in. I had a similar reaction to A Confederacy of Dunces.


Most recent reads:

Sorry by Zoran Drvenkar. Wonderful. Loved every bit of it.

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra. Great story, some really shining moments, but also a little pretentious. Only a little over halfway through, so hopefully it balances out and ends up just being great.

Up Jumped the Devil by Michael Poore. Meh. semi-appropriate last name.

The Marching Dead by Lee Battersby. Fucking woeful. After his highly entertaining The Rat Corpse King this was a complete letdown. Tragic.

Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde. Excellent. Kind of an Orwellian satire, seemingly noddish to Douglas Adams.

Lost in A Good Book and The Well of Lost Plots, also by Jasper Fforde, both in the Thursday Next series. IiaGB was awesome, very amusing read. TWoLP was a bit more detail oriented, probably because it sets up so much for the rest of the books. I'll have to continue on, I suppose.

There are pylons everywhere in the industry, and unfortunately, childish behavior is never a surprise. I'm not saying either is right in this case, but if you can't be a better person about it then there's really nothing better to expect.

fab remix. Wish I could have the parts too!

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Kids. Cancer. Good times.

Man in the Empty Suit by Sean Ferrell. Post-apocalyptic neo-noir about a time-traveller.

In the Country of Men by Hisham Matar. Growing up in Libya during the rise of Gaddafi.

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. Enjoyed it more than A Game of Thrones. Hope to finish off the series this year.

I've also been stocking up on Jasper Fforde's books. Loved The Fourth Bear. The Eyre Affair was pretty good, too.
