"I am fairly certain that deep down he knows how funny he is. But just in case: he is one of the funniest bloggers there is. Now you all know."
Cruella Collett - The Giraffability of Digressions


"You very much do a quality blog and deserve recognition for it. I'm glad I found you and that more people will now too! Cool!"



"You are the bomb diggity!
I'm not surprised you got such a great award.
You write good stuff here Mr. Nomi! And it's always good for a chuckle or two or three!
*smile*
Don't worry, I'll follow you to wherever you go in cyberland.
I'm like a puppy nipping at your blogging heels.

"I just read a buncha your blog posts and YOU, sir, should change your name to Mr. TOO FREAKIN FUNNY! You're my new obsession. Be honored."

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.

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.

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,

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…
