I'm obsessed with wanting to read Howard the Duck comic books from Marvel Comics (1st series). I can't find them anywhere except selling online for mega bucks.

Funny, I got a whole Howard the Duck compilation earlier this year (1973-1986); clearly, the last issues of this book are of no interest (Steve Gerber not being involved).

Gerber revived his fowl in 2002 for another series that's more affordable and quite good too.

I'm about to read James Ellroy's latest, Perfidia.
He was in Paris 2-3 weeks ago for a reading and a signing of the book.

Could I have some of them, please? I'm interested in the series that starts in 1976. Thanks!

33 Revolutions per Minute: A History of Protest Songs, from Billie Holiday to Green Day by Dorian Lynskey

Excellent. Much better researched and written than it needed to be.

Yes, I bristled at Green Day. And I questioned a few other selections.

But each chapter is more about the social context of the song, usually in proximity to an historical flashpoint, whether Vietnam, the miner's strike or WTO protest in Seattle. What emerges is a mini-history of fighting the power in the 20th century, and the songs themselves usually take a backseat. A ton of tricky issues are explored, and this is by no means a blind "celebration" of the protest song genre.

A good blend of US and UK, although clearly written by a Brit. Refreshingly, Chile, Nigeria and Jamaica get a 50 page chunk.

The whole thing is nearly 700 pages, and I wish it was twice as long.

I loved Gaiman & Romita's Eternals re-boot when it first came out in single issue format. Really, loved it! Got the TPB and tried to re-read it last year and didn't get far, but I wouldn't call it boring.


I'm out of the loop on comics... Have been or years. Are you reading the 2006 version or has something new been released?

the 2006 version. It slowly lost steam the whole way through. I cared less and less. They are pointless characters.

rob's gotten me inspired to start some kinda "intellectual progress" blog... i'd have to finish a book as of late, though.

actually, i finished "although of course you end up becoming yourself" again... i think i've waxed emotional a lot about david foster wallace on here before, and i won't lie, it's hard not to mythologize the man. but he nailed a lot of things about self-doubt/fear/relating to the world when you can feel an imposter sort of syndrome that i personally feel. so it's nice that someone out there was able to express the same thing, but be successful. i think he's the main contemporary writer who first truly made me think "holy shit, you can actually word that!" on a page. and i like the format of the book- lipsky comes across as being like, he's trying to impress dfw too or get some weird point it/he's obviously trying to please rolling stone too and hint at any drug problems raised by infinite jest, but there really is a playful vibe after wallace finally opened up to him more.

hey schizo, you read a lot of cool stuff. you SHOULD definitely do a review blog of the stuff you read. it will be cool to look at in the future to see how you have changed opinions and all that!

if i can just finish stuff, haha. i flipped through things fall apart the other day, and i hated reading it in school but now i think it warrants a re-read. i know i've changed on sylvia plath and anne sexton as i'm older... tended to write them off. thanks for the good idea, dude! and thanks- i try to keep my mind sharp
