This might have been asked a thousand times but what is everyone reading now? I'm read Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon. Its a true story about a guy who drives around the world on his motorcycle. It started out a bit slow but I'm really enjoying the bit where he is in Africa. Anyone else?
Just started reading 'New York Rocker' by Gary Valentine last nite and can't put the sucker down....Gary, in case you don't know, was in Blondie (at the beginning) and The Know....lotsa tales about the personalites involved in the formation of the punk scene in NYC....
I just finished 1491 by Charles C. Manning. It is now becoming accepted that the Americas were more populated and the Indians were more advanced than what we were taught. Genetic bottlenecking and cultural differences provided a fertile ground for devastating epidemics. It's a riveting read for a history book. I'm also reading Silence On The Wire, Ghost Planes and The Fountains of Paradise. I also just finished The Accidental Mind; it was a tough read but worth it in the end. It basically explains how the human mind ended up inventing god.
I'm halfway through Pictures at a Revolution. It's about the making of the five best picture nominees of 1968 (The Graduate, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night, Bonnie and Clyde and Dr. Doolittle). Rex Harrison was a fucking asshole.
I'm currently reading "The Doom Patrol Archives vol.4" and "Exploding: The Warner Brothers Records Story" by Stan Cornyn, the crazy guy who ran all those weird ads for WB Records in the 70's, like the free dirt giveaway for Neil Young's second album, or the Van Dyke Parks 1 cent album offer. Great book!
