Transmetropolitan was the only comic I really liked.


I'm reading Doktor Sleepless now as it comes out, its by the same guy I think and its pretty cool.

i'm reading the Linux Administration Guide now.  it's teaching this little Linux n00b a lot about computers...so it makes me happy.

i just finished a book called Spam Kings, which was about the pushing and pulling between spammers and anti-spammers in the early-to-mid aughts.  it was an interesting book...i, myself don't get too worked up about spam since spam blockers have gotten pretty good, but it was really fun to read about the fighting and the tactics used on both sides.

I'm going to be reading Babylon Babies/Babes/Whatever it's called so I can see if there's a real ending to the Babylon A.D. movie at all within the next month.

I'm currently rereading "Fletch" by Gregory McDonald.  The gimmicky Chevy Chase movies from the 1980s were very loosely based on it, but the book is so much better than those, and so is the series that followed it.  Highly recommended if you're looking for a mystery series to get into.

I'm also just about finished with "Notes from Underground," which was a gift from RogueClown.  It's classically angsty and awesome if you can grok a wordy 19th century Russian novel.

The people's history of American Empire. Nice comic that teaches you something. Especially relevant due to my current situation. Just met a dude from the Philippians and I was able to talk trash on Leonard Wood.

Right now I'm 3/4 the way through Evasion. It's great. All about scams, dumpster diving, squatting, hitchhiking, and shoplifting. It's also written by some vegan strait edge kid who loves bagels and carrot juice. For five bucks I highly recommend it. Arbie, you should read it to get further inspiration for the phonelosers book.

Believe it or not I'm actually interested in seeing some more of that book. I just figured Arbie got tired of it or lost all interest and figured that little snippet being the whole book. It's a shame. It seemed interesting to me.

There's actually a big chunk of that book that's sort of done.  I keep changing my mind between going with that original chapter or just making a big archive of all the PLA stuff.  Currently I'm working mostly on the original chapter idea.  Each year I fail my goal of having it finished up by the end of the year.  I really do still work on it when I have the time, though.
