this weekend..  I just took a couple of days because I got so sucked into E's life.  For you who aren't sure who Mark Oliver Everett is, he is the lead singer of the band 'The Eels'. 
This guy survived some intensely emotional shite and survived.  Mostly because he was able to express it in his songwriting, never giving in to what the record companies wanted him to do.  He stayed true to himself despite some seriously messed up situations! 

 

Wow....I just looked him up on Wikipedia, what a life.  I'm going to be joining a friend's book club and when it comes to me to choose the book, I'll be picking this one.

I can imagine how you were sucked into this. Mark Everett is a very interesting guy who seems to have escaped a spiral of emotional misery. His music lately doesn't seem as dark and sardonic as it once was. Maybe it reflects his improved outlook.

You should see the PBS Nova documentary about him and his father Hugh Everett, a famous physicist who propsed the "Many Worlds" hypothesis. It's called "Nova: Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives" and you can read more about it here. Mary and I saw this a few weeks ago, and were entranced.

I'm still reading "The Terror Presidency" by Jack Goldsmith, former Assistant Attorney General, Office of Legal Counsel  (ISBN: 978-0-393-06550-3).  It's all about how Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzalez et al. made conscious and informed decisions to break the law.

latest audio books:

Discworld #7 (Pyramids) by Terry Pratchett — excellent of course

Ender's Game
by Orson Scott Card — excellent (except I hated the woman narrator)

A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon — meh

Longshot - by Dick Frances — usually I like Francis, but after an hour I gave up as it was vapid and dull and had not yet delved into any semblance of plot.

The Lovely Bones.  I have a two-year old daughter.  I don't know if I can keep reading this book.  Tears roll out the corners of my eyes when I read anything about Susie's family, but especially her father.  I can't help but think what if...?
