In My Own Words:
Normally I don't fill this kind of stuff out but I'm at a loss of venues in which to spend my time right now and this happens to be handy. I am 20 years old, go to community college but don't really know what I'm going to do with my life yet. The reason I attend is to keep my parents (who are funding the venture) satisfied, and me satisfied partly that I'm actually doing something. College is the … Read more

Story by Robert McKee

Story by Robert Mckee is one of the best pieces of literature these old bones have had the pleasure of holding. Every single sentence is chalked full of mountains of wealth. It's like reading Beowulf, without the wolf. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then McKee makes a word worth a thousand pictures with his inspiring and thought invoking writing on screenplays. He tells the reader that one must study the craft of screenwriting before attempting any kind of writing that will be worth anything. He likens it to if someone were to listen to a bunch of symphonies, say all 9 of Beethoven's, then say, "you know what, I can write a symphony." McKee says that film watching and… Read more

Survivor: A Novel by Chuck Palahniuk
Survivor by Palahniuk is my number one book choice if I had to be stranded in Chucky Cheese for a day-or anywhere. It's about a cult member who is the only remaining survivor of a mass-suicide cult and America believes him to be some kind of guru after having survived something like that. The literature is dark, sardonic, and sarcastic, just the way I like it. The main character takes pleasure in small things such as starting a fake self-help hotline and when people call up he gives them useless advice leading them usually to suicide. He says he knows to pull the phone away from his ear when he hears the trigger mechanism click just before the gun fires. Towards the middle of the book he… Read more
Choke by Chuck Palahniuk
Choke by Chuck Palahniuk
Choke is almost a tie-breaker for favorite book along with Survivor. Both are well worth the time and worth a re-read. Choke is also a pre-requisite for anyone who wants to get into the best spots that I hang out at. I'll be waiting at the door, asking you if you've read it, and if not, guess what? No Joe's club, no champagne room, not even a kiss goodbye cause you know what? You don't rock, I bet you don't even have a six-pack, also another prerequisite. One part in the book that's amusing to some, is where the main character is going to sex addicts anonymous classes and he says they ask you stuff to make sure you're really a sex addict like, "do you have have sex in public places or, do… Read more
