I think I like the last one best.

Hahahaaha! The Devil's new slogan : Hell - A Dry Heat!

Yeah it's a funny twist on "had to walk 5 miles to school in the snow".

It's not the heat, it's the Hades.

Oh my. The Harry Potters really had me rolling and I'm not even a huge fan. I never read the whole series. Yes, I know I belong to a very small minority. I dunno, just didn't do it for me. Which is strange cuz I love wizards, magic, and fantasy.

Dunno why this series just did NOT click with me.
I'm with Vinny. I thought that was the best one too...although any time you can poke fun at Rupert Murdoch is a good time too. :)

Harry Potter sure had an excellent run.

I was the same way. I thought it was a kids thing. But after having read His Dark Materials and The Hunger Games, two trilogies apparently aimed at teenagers - both of which were excellent - I'm thinking of checking out the Harry Potter books. And when they come out with the definitive DVD collection that might just be a great set to have.

Don't even mention humidity to me. If the hurricanes don't kill me, the tropical waves will. Gah!

I saw the first and second Potter movies but it kind of got confusing in the third. I'd probably enjoy the books more.

Since when did we not know Fox News was full of shit?

But you left out the part, "... uphill, both ways".

We had gale force winds here last week. They blew over the outdoor stage at Bluesfest almost killing Cheap Trick. (Yeah, I know. Big loss.) We were without power for two days.

Nobody likes inexpensive magic anyway. But Cheap Trick at a blues fest? Isn't that an oxymoron?

It started out as a Blues fest. Over the years it kind of lost it's way. Purists aren't all that happy but it's one of the biggest festivals in North America now.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
