i need to read more HST...the only one of his books i've read so far is Hell's Angels.  i find outlaw motorcycle gangs fascinating, so i really enjoyed it.

Yeah I quite enjoyed it. On a related HST note, last week Rolling Stone moved his columns back into the free section, I recommend the one about the flaming birds at Owl Farm. Also this documentary I found on BitTorrent called "Breakfast with Hunter", where they basically follow him around for a while. Johnny Depp guest stars, it's good stuff.

Now reading Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan. After that I've got Ender's Game (a friend of mine accidentally ordered double the amount of stuff on amazon and sent me the doubles to read) and the books after Ender's Game. I'm probably going to be reading Flow my tears, the policemen said after Altered Carbon.

I actually don't read much Sci Fi, but a good friend of mine lent me Ender's Game and I couldn't put it down.  I really really really loved that book.

I just finished reading The Ruins since it got a nice endorsement from Stephen King and they're about to release a movie on it.  The book was... eh.  Guessing the movie will be just as eh.  I don't think Little Shop of Horrors will have to worry about being replaced by The Ruins as the top horror flicks about killer plants.

hahaha...nah, not that kind of federal jurisdiction.  i wish.  stuff like standing and mootness and ripeness...stuff that you really don't care about unless you're a lawyer desperate to kick a case that's been brought against your client, or a judge desperate to avoid ruling on a case.

Right now I'm reading "Messy Spirituality" by Mike Yaconelli  http://tinyurl.com/6zlorw

I don't go to church enough, I seldom pray. And sometimes when I'm on the road and pissed off, frustrated, lonely and missing my family or my late grandmother. My Christian faith gets me through. This is the book fo those who feel that they don't do Christianity right.



Another one I'm reading is "Project Beta: The Story Of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, And The Creation Of A Modern UFO Myth" by Gregory J. Bhishop-Hurley.     http://tinyurl.com/56maba

I love UFO and alien stuff and this book is very informative to say the least.

From Publishers Weekly
This allegedly true tale of government secrecy reads like the entire story arc of the X-Files. Covering topics like alien invasion, UFOs, paranoia, cover-ups and smear campaigns, this book has all the elements of a compelling-though not entirely believable-yarn, but the narrative never gels into such a tale. In a nutshell, Bishop's story centers around the now-deceased Paul Bennewitz, a hapless electrical physicist living near Kirtland Air Force Base outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bennewitz detected what he believed to be signs of alien contact and began to grow alarmed, even panicked, by his observations. The book contends that while Bennewitz inadvertently did get close to something top secret, various government agencies fed him lies and disinformation to keep him believing in an imminent alien invasion until he was completely discredited and utterly insane. Eventually, author and UFO researcher Bill Moore was recruited as a mole to help in the disinformation campaign against Bennewitz. While hardcore UFO aficionados will no doubt salivate over the accusations, details and techie tidbits contained herein, Bishop never conveys a real sense of Bennewitz's personality and motivations, and neither Bennewitz nor Moore emerge as fully fleshed out individuals. Instead, Bishop tells readers that Bennewitz was a "genius at figuring things out" and "his Achilles heel was his credulity." It would have been nice to understand the broken man at the center of it all, but as it is, Mulder and Scully seem more three dimensional than the players in this narrative.

Sad part is I'm curious about this book but I don't want to look like a pledging skinhead when I ask for it at Barnes and Noble. After all having a good book on your shelf lets people know what to expect when they walk in the house.
