Vancouver trip and fall reading

I've been in the thick of book revisions lately, but I still wanted to post something this week. So here's what's on my mind:

Tomorrow, I head to Van to pick up the little one. My last trip to downtown was for an Adobe Seminar in July 2006.

I'm reading Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine and finding myself thoroughly engaged by this very powerful book. Her detailed research and insightful analysis frames 20th century concepts of control through torture, both ideological and economic.

  1. Well, I certainly know what I'm reading next...this is what has been in my head, ever since I couldn't sleep on the night of September 10th, 2001, until now.
    I'm glad someone finally brought it to light...makes me feel normal again.

  3. It's weird, everytime I hear the Gin Blossoms, I think of you.
    I don't even know if you like/liked the Gin Blossoms.
    It's weird and has nothing to do with this post, but I just had to say it. Been bugging me.

  4. Gin Blossoms reminds me of Empire Records because I liked "Till I Hear It From You". Which makes me wish I worked in a music store. But not a soulless HMV. One like Lyle's Place.
