Karl sent me some books

"'There are a million questions I'd like the answers to. You always hated groups and here you are submitting to indoctrination in a religion ostensibly run by dead employees of British Telecom. Why? For Christ's sake why?'
'Yeah, it is kind of weird, isn't it. I think death must have mellowed me.'"

That from the fucking brilliant story The North London Book of the Dead, in The Quantity Theory of Insanity,by Will Self, one of the books Karl sent me.

I'm thus far horribly impressed, amused, entertained, and intrigued.
Good stuff.

Chuck would tell you to look it up on Amazon or bn.com yourself, dammit
Will Self.

For some reason, i didn't enjoy that or My Idea of Fun nearly as much as i think i was supposed to given my own, personal, idea of fun. IIRC, there were, at least, some great lines.

Ah, Will Self. Famous for snorting coke on a plane he was on as the Prime Minister's press corps.

Completely fucking ga-ga, of course, but coke will do hat to you.

I don't think I've ever had hat done to me. What's it like?

You don't really want to know; it's naughty.
