@ Medicineman: My biggest issue is with the beats. They're just not my cup of meat, for the most part. Lyrically Aesop is as beyond the ken as ever, and his flow never gets old. I'd say that most of the time, when I don't like an album of any genre it's because I can't get into the music. I will, however, check out whatever Aesop Rock puts out next.

@ SteveJB: I haven't got that far in the book yet, but your example is clearly on point.

@Breakreep: Aw shucks. But I don't even know where Fifth Jerusalem is.

Depending on your preferred canon, it's either near the Gnosis wormhole activated by Proto Merkabah before anyone knew where the Zohar was, or it's in Utah.

I just finished the entire Y: The Last Man series. Holy fucking banana nuts, it was good. If any of you people want to read a good comic series, read this.

That explains the "homophobic but curious" tag.

No that was because I joined the forum as a moron and used "gay" as a pejorative to the antics of an equivalent moron who'd managed to hack the forum.

Apparently Glenn Beck is now a fiction writer. What can't he do?

http://www.amazon.com/Overton-Window-Glenn-Beck/dp/1439184305/ref=reg_hu-wl_gen-recs

Here's the Amazon blurb:

"A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed . . . can it be stopped?

There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.


For Noah Gardner, a twentysomething public relations executive, it's safe to say that political theory is the furthest thing from his mind. Smart, single, handsome, and insulated from the world's problems by the wealth and power of his father, Noah is far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.


But all of that changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a woman who is consumed by the knowledge that the America we know is about to be lost forever. She and her group of patriots have vowed to remember the past and fight for the future--but Noah, convinced they're just misguided conspiracy-theorists, isn't interested in lending his considerable skills to their cause.


And then the world changes.


An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don't know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact--or, more important, which side to fight for.


But for Noah, the choice is clear: Exposing the plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the woman he loves and the individual freedoms he once took for granted."

unsurprisingly eurocentric and a tad racist, but the stories are fascinating.

w pages and decided to buy it.

the introduction ends like this:
"In any case, the whole of television and celebrity is simply a distraction aimed at keeping you sedated while your pockets are picked by vested interests that may or may not be lizards. You're going to end up with celebrity reality shows piped directly into your eyes the same way that classical music is played to fatten cattle. What kind of person buys the autobiography of a panel-show contestant? Wake up you CUNT."

being called a cunt is a weird impetus to buy a book, but there it is.



haha i would never have considered reading this, but now i kinda want to..
