    What are you reading now?

    I'm working my way through Gravity's Rainbow as well. I am also using the guide and this: Full immersion baby! I am only about 10% in but I totally agree: challenging and brilliant. I can actually feel Pynchon rewiring my neurons as I read...

    RIP someone or another

    Oh man, RIP Ursula. Such a lovely person. I always enjoyed going up to see her at Powell's for book signings and such.

    Traveling to Portland, OR! Places to visit

    Multnomah Falls is a must see (stop by McMenamins Edgefield on the way). Portland has a lot of cool districts to walk around and shop/eat: 23rd st, Hawthorne, Belmont, Mississippi, Hollywood, Alberta come to mind. Powell's City of Books, of course. Chuck Palahniuk wrote Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland that includes a guide to weird places: https://www.wired.com/2016/05/what-to-do-in-portland/ Happy trails!

    I don't normally read mainstream fiction novels but this was excellent: As was this (back to my normal genre): And I'm enjoying this one on audiobook: I went to James Gleick's author event @ Powell's in support of this book. It was fun.

    Hey Knucks several of your recent posts with pics just appear as broken links for me. Anyone else?

    ^^^ I also loved TBP and I loved the sequel, The Dark Forest, even more. Can't wait for the 3rd book!

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    I guess I am in the minority here because I absolutely LOVE the new Radiohead album. I have always preferred their mellower stuff and this is a whole album of juicy delicious mellowness. Can't stop listening to it.

    What are you reading now?

    ^^^ I recently read This is Water and found it very inspiring as well. Me: Very interesting and well written.

    I always thought it was the police code but the actual story is stranger: http://www.ibtimes.com/420-meaning-very-odd-beginnings-marijuanas-global-holiday-2356246
