What [else] is Offie Reading?

02/10/2010

Here’s a list
Psych’s Big Book of Mental Disease – Gets revised.

15 year old Guantanamo detainee heads to trial – I dunno about you but i thought gitmo was for the leaders and organizers of terrorist organizations not some some 15 year old kid who threw a grenade. And yes he killed an american but he should be in american detention in afghanistan NOT half way around the world.

The man who killed campaign finance reform – This guy has been working very hard for the a corporation’s right to buy our political process.

Sade has a new album out – wish i could download it, but i hear it’s an automatic classic

Frank Luntz – a true politicians friend. he advises conservative politicians how to manipulate public support and opinoin. This time it’s about the climate. I would call this “treating the political process like a popularity contest”. If you don’t understand whats wrong with this… ew, there is something wrong.

If the world is warming why is it snowing so much? – more stupid people rhetoric. Apparently politicians are not metorologists. Or people who have much sense. The past 7 days have been historically improbable, using then as a sign of normalcy is not putting the wolves to rest.

Apparently i have been watching The Best skateboarding Ever – bunch of contest and a little tour footy. It’s been playin for the past 4 hours.

ok i’m done… and of course my fictional reading…

Fiction
The Mysterious flame of Queen Loana - Umberto Eco

The Mysterius Flame of Queen Loana – Umberto Eco

The premise of Umberto Eco’s The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana, may strike some readers as laughably unpromising, and others as breathtakingly rich. A sixty-ish Milanese antiquarian bookseller nicknamed Yambo suffers a stroke and loses his memory of everything but the words he has read: poems, scenes from novels, miscellaneous quotations. His wife Paola fills in the bare essentials of his family history, but in order to trigger original memories, Yambo retreats alone to his ancestral home at Solara, a large country house with an improbably intact collection of family papers, books, gramophone records, and photographs.
