this back thing seems better .. until I move the wrong way. I am a very active guy, who hates to sit for too long. But hey, I realize I should take it easy for a few days so I am back to reading my latest Stephen King (started it a couple months ago and things got hectic so I had put it to the side).
I read 150 pages last night and maybe 100 the night before. As usual I am hooked. It is his latest, and the 2nd of two he released last year...
riveting to say the least. Imagine answering your cell phone and having your evolutionary civility removed. This is even better than Lisey's Story.
oh and since I am completely out of the loop I was pleasantly surprised to hear a couple days ago that Tori Amos will be releasing a new album entitled American Doll Posse on May 1st.

She will soon after (May 28th) begin touring in Europe. Her latest officially released tour date is July 5th, Manchester, UK. No word on the US dates yet, but I am surely going to catch at least a couple shows.
There was a time when I would have known all about this months ago ... eh I guess I overdosed on her a bit too much back in like 1996-2005. I tend to do that with Artists I love.
anyway .. moving right along
They are fracking cracking down on Internet usage heaps at work. I used to save the down times to read and comment on all my blogger buddies but now ... if I even check my email I feel like every eye is upon me. This is frustrating to say the least. With three in the department now our down time is quite substantial (I hear layoffs.....).
maybe a layoff would get my ass in gear and find something that not only pays a bit better, but might make me a little less frustrated each morning contemplating the long boring day ahead..
this made me laugh too hard...

shite I'm late and need a shave really bad. Damn you middle eastern ancestors for making my facial hair start popping out moments after I shave it off!!!!

You genetic propensity makes you the more endearing to some of us! :)

I'm a HUGE Stephen King fan. I don't know if you read the Dark Tower series or not, but it's very good. Two weeks ago, they released the first in a series of 7 comic books based on the story. The artwork is just beautiful. Check it out:

Layoffs are coming at my company, too. Funny how we wait for a layoff to get our butt in gear (that's what I'm doing anyway). Hehe.

That video is hilarious!

I'm with Lemuel: what is an inconvenience for you, is wildly alluring to many of your readers.

I've never gotten into King, but I have a friend that has been going on about Cell. I think he's reading it because it's set in Boston, where he lives.

I am definitely looking forward to the Tori Amos album. I thought she was coming out with a best of boxed set or something, but maybe I was mistaken. Her version of Eminem's '97 Bonnie & Clyde is scary (in a good way) and probably my favourite track from her.

i've been interested in reading a novel of Mr. King's but I don't know where to start; I like a horror story that gives you the creeps (over the slash and gore)
What would you recommend?
