recourses for the malignant and benign

just trying to find these little things in this life and the next one, those small irrationalities, or misplaced and mispelled catch phrases, tiny indsicretions that had you running and falling on that day to day

Any association with the Mockingjay symbol is forbidden

Been reading the books about half way done with the third one. I like them and the movies. My girlfriend doesn’t like them thinking the writing is to juvenile but I don’t care it’s a good story.

“I’ve never believed that being a self-regarding, narcissistic egotist should impede you from wanting a better world for everybody.” Irvine Welsh (via thatlitsite)

Funny. Sometimes I feel like that but maybe that’s just me. Ha ha.

 Wild Turkey, from “The Birds of America” ~ artist John James Audubon. All 435 of Audubon’s original watercolors for Birds of America are at the New York Historical Society. First published in sections between 1827 - 1838, there are 119 complete copies of the Double Elephant Folio in existence today. Often regarded as the greatest picture book ever produced, a copy sold at Christie’s in March 2000 for $8,802,500.

Just got back from Canada and actually did do some nature stuff like going to a small zoo and going swimming at the beach but really at a beach in part of the river.   But also been perusing Audubons journal.  pretty interesting. He liked to hunt and stuff animals that he painted and sketched but oh well he drew some beautiful stuff.

Atkins cites Hammett and J D MacDonald as influences, and this first Nick Travers novel reflects that.If you like either of those authors then do read this book. If you don’t , it’s still a good mystery, has a pacey plot, punchy dialogue, a sense of place (in `Nawlins’ and on the Mississippi Delta)- and Travers as amateur `blues detective’ and sleuth.You’ll get lost in the history of blues legend Robert Johnson that provides the central story here. And an interesting aspect of the novel is the counterpoint of that world of the 30’s with that of New Orleans and the Delta now.I’ve not read any other of Atkins’s Nick Travers novels but on the strength of this debut I will.

Been reading mr ace lately.  I guess I do dig on country noir.   Strip joints and truck stops.  Got to love that.

There ya go. It’s official. TD’s coming back for at least one more.

Gotta love it.  But I think I’m a little sports worn out at this point with the World Cup going on and the emotional roller coaster if the playoffs.
