Books for Guys who actually like to Read

today i will be going to 2 extremes with the books.  i will be showing my geek side and my romantical/refined side as well. let’s start with the geek shit first.

Alien Vs. Predator: Prey- by Steve Perry. (I SHOULDA BEEN GOOOOOOONE!!!!!!!) and Stephenani Perry. i always dug the alien just kidding, only like the first 2 and predator movies. when the nerd rumor-mill started to speak of a possible AVP film i learned about the books. this one is pretty much the basis for the first AVP movie, but the book is BOSS!!!!! a woman takes a job providing security for a colony on a remote planet. the group finds themselves in the middle of the predator’s (yautja) hunting the aliens. it’s a really good story.

Memories of my Melancholy Whores- Gabriel Marquez’. fuck  “Love in the Time of Cholera”, this is a GREAT book. the unnamed protagonist is an un-named journalist and life-long bachelor. he writes for a paper and is isn’t really anything special. on the eve of his 90th birthday he decides to give himself the gift of a night of love with a young virgin. he’s ALWAYS solicited prostitutes. a local madam buys a young, beautiful woman for him. what occurs is him reliving past memories. i’m not going to ruin this for you, but it’s a for over a year he simply watches the young girl sleep. He says, “This was something new for me. I was ignorant of the arts of seduction and had always chosen my brides for a night at random, more for their price than their charms, and we had made love without love, half-dressed most of the time and always in the dark, so we could imagine ourselves as better than we were … That night I discovered the improbably pleasure of contemplating the body of a sleeping woman without the urgencies of desire or the obstacles of modesty.”

DAY-UM!!!!! it’s a good book, and it’s relatively short.

tonight’s music will not feature a band but a subgenre of music: POST-PUNK. post-punk came about…..well, just after the punk scene broke out in the late 1970’s. it found root in the indie scene and spawned: goth, industrial, and alternative music. the last 3 video’s are for…..well, she knows. lol. and yes, i own every album that i’m posting here.

  1. I approve of the music. And I keep meaning to check out the AVP books (I keep hearing there’s a bunch) and then I forget. Yikes.

      i knew you would. lol.

      i have 2 of the AVP books. the interesting thing about the one i listed here is that at points it takes the Predator’s POV. how cool is that. when the Predator realizes the woman is a female he says, “milk glands…..of course, this was a female. no wonder the fight was so tough, females are usually smarter than males.” lulz.

    Jesus and Mary Chain was a great group.

    Had this song on repeat when I had a massive crush on a girl named Cindy:

    This was also a good driving song:

    Here is there softer side:

    Also, Bauhaus? Joy Division? Sisters of Mercy? You must have had a hell of a goth period.
