      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?

      Starting a "Comedy d'Art" Sacre Bleu, by Christopher Moore. Comedy and Art, right up my alley.

      Also reading Huang Fan's Zero and other fictions. He's Taiwanese, and the title story is a 1984-like story. Pretty cool so far.

      I just started reading Timothy Leary's "The Delicious Grace of Moving One's Hand: The Collected Sex Writings"; it's quite fabulous & much more philosophical than one might assume.  But then again, it is Timothy Leary... ;)

      Yeah , I just finished reading it , a while back. It took me forever to get thru it , but , Alice does tell great stories.....Yeah , Geza X , AND , OF COURSE , Patricia Morrisson were in the Bags , until they imploded. Her ex , Nickey Beat , from The Wierdos , was also , briefly , in The Cramps , in '91. Good as a drummer as he is , he was'nt right for them. He LOOKED the part.

      I'm reading VIOLENCE GIRL the autobiography of Alice Bag. Tons o' fun, w/ some great pix and scoops on the L.A punk scene, it also doesn't skimp on her childhood in East L.A.

      Geza X was in an early incarnation of the Bags.

      Did ya know she went out w/ one o' the Weirdos?

      Published by Feral House, who publish some really interesting shit. Buy it!

      Gibson's classic. His friend Bruce Sterling's work really resonates nowadays, so much of what we're experiencing is encapsulated in his work, esp. Distraction and Holy Fire.

      One of my faves, along with Kim Stanley Robinson and Cory Doctorow.
