William S. Burroughs - The Naked Lunch is fucking crazy, radical. Parts I don't get, but it flows well and is poetic.

Just finished Mark Bowden's "The Best Game Ever," on the 1958 Colts-Giants championship game that was excerpted in SI a few weeks ago.

As the SI excerpt showed, the in-depth profiles of Raymond Berry dominated this book. Not knowing much background about the guy, I thought that part of it was outstanding. And while there's a whole chapter dedicated to Sam Huff and the evolution of Tom Landry's Giants defense, the book is definitely focused more on the winning team. So if you're an old Baltimore Colts fan, you'll probably love it.

The TV broadcast of the game didn't survive, but NBC has the radio play-by-play intact and Bowden liberally sprinkles in the transcript during the course of the game.

Lot of great material from Berry, Artie Donovan (of course), Gino Marchetti, etc. I breezed through this thing in a couple of nights.

And of interest here: Bowden dedicated the book to David Halberstam, who apparently was researching the same topic for his own book when he died last year. Bowden explains that story in the epilogue.

Well recommended, and not just for football fans.

  • Think for yourself, question authority.
Colin Wilson - Spider World:The Tower.

Pretty cool Sci-Fi for his first attempt into the genre with some cool concepts and a great post-apocalyptic theme.

read some Critical Theory over the last weeks and some other 68 texts.


Adorno`s/Horkheimer`s thoughts on culture industry are a must read.
