Read, read, read!!!! education, imagination, humour

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Actually reading -

Biologische Anthropologie (H.-G. Gadamer & P. Vogler)
and
Pluralismus und Ethos der Wissenschaft (Beckers, Hägele, Hahn & Ortner)

Just some random high brow-stuff as usual..

It was absolutely criminal that they printed the episodes of Firekind in the wrong order.

Edit to add: I wonder if James Cameron had read Firekind before he made Avatar.

The Strontium Dog hardback came today, reprinting all Johnny Alpha's early adventures from Starlord, including full-colour reproductions of all colour pages. I've been looking forward to this, so that's what I'll be reading later.

It is positively brutal. What a fantastic read though. I had serious difficulty putting it down.
He cast himself in such a bad light he made some of the other low life's seem like Mary Poppins.
I wasn't actually aware of Screaming Trees output to be honest. Had a listen after reading it and wasn't a fan.
His solo stuff however is great.

Enjoyed reading the Book earlier this year and was very surprised at the depths his Drug Addiction took him.

Yeah, the Screaming Trees to my ears was mostly the work of the Conner Brothers. But his own Solo Work is just......Wow! :kiss:

Currently reading.... (as recommended by many Fans of Folk Horror)
