Here some Books that i have read for fun and for being smart.



about them loudly


Mamoth piece of writing. Worth the effort, very well written comedy.


  1. David Foster Wallce taught me manythings about myself! A selection of which is about how much my writing could improve.
  2. This book induced fits of laughter that hit so hard, it made me wary about reading it in public areas.

Wallace's books take you and Do sit ups with your MIND!
Mind feels like steel! Pumpin' IQ all day every day!



Pale Fire

Both of these books were dark and readable, but I preferred Pale Fire to Lolita. Nabokov owns (see picture).

I am not making any waves rambling on about some of the most well known classics of the last 30 years but fuck it, people need to read more and these books are great!


"Several Days later Murray asked me about a tourist attraction known as the most photographed barn in America. We drove twenty-two miles into the country around Farmington. There were meadows and apple orchards. White fences trailed through the rolling fields. Soon the signs started appearing. THE MOST PHOTOGRAPHED BARN IN AMERICA. We counted five signs before we reached the site.... We walked along a cowpath to the slightly elevated spot set aside for viewing and photographing. All the people had cameras; some had tripods, telephoto lenses, filter kits. A man in a booth sold postcards and slides - pictures of the barn were taken from the elevated spot. We stood near a grove of trees and watched the photographers. Murray maintained a prolonged silence, occasionally scrawling some notes in a little book.

'No one sees the barn,' he said finally.

A long silence followed.

'Once you've seen the signsabout the barn, it becomes impossible to see the barn.'
He fell silent once more. People with cameras left the elevated site, replaces at once by others.
'We're not her to capture an image. We're here to maintain one. Can you feel it, Jack? An accumulation of nameless energies.'

There was an extended silence. The man in the booth sold postcards and slides.

'Being here is a kind of spiritual surrender. We see only what the others see. The thousands who were here in the past, those who will come in the future. We've agreed to be part of a collective perception. This literally colors our vision. A religious experience in a way, like all tourism.'
Another silence ensued.

'They are all taking pictures of taking pictures,' he said."
