Superb shelf. I loved it. Borges, Hunter S Thompson ( I loved the film version of Fear & Loathing too, in fact Gilliam is my favourite director. Have you seen Brazil? Its the most brilliant movie I've seen), O Brother where art thou?, Tom Robbins, Waits, Eco, Colin Wilson, Moviemaker's master class, Cuckold, Master & Margarita, Pynchon, graphic novels - It's like coming face to face with my double!
Amadeus... I've seen the film adaptation of that. It's been years but as I recall it was excellent.
I will read it as soon as I get it,thank you for your comment,I just finished "the Angels &Demons",I loved it,Have you already read it?
I have been reading "Angels and Demons" by Dan BrawnBy the way ,Roya is a female name (Persian)which means Dearm!enjoy yourself here in shelfari!...
Hi B,Thank you for your kind note,You have an interesting shelf.Congrads,
I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.~Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Player PianoYou said something that immediately made me think of this quote. My mind always runs wild when I think of this line. Evokes Bosch-like visuals. I should read Player Piano; I wonder what context the line was used in.
My god, that's quite the description of the way the winter season affects you. You must be an artist; non-artists don't articulate themselves in that way. I'm having a hard time composing this note. My mind is all over the place so forgive me if it's disjointed. So what's all this about wandering around at night with nowhere to go? Your life (as it comes across on Shelfari) intrigues me. You work in the theatre, you seem to always be reading intelligent titles (no fluff for you which is why I like your shelf), you withdraw/revert in the wintertime, and now this about nowhere to go at 2AM!! My god!! Could my own life be any more boring!?!?! You know the ever so popular portrayal of Americans? The one where you get up every day of your goddamn life and follow the same routine? Work long hours and come home worn out from the day? Heat up some dinner in the microwave and plop down in front of the TV? Go to bed only to get up the following morning to do the same thing? And then the main character wakes up one day to realize this is not the life he/she wants to live anymore? That's the kind of life I'm trying to avoid. I do fall into the category of people that go to some routine job everyday but that's where it ends. It's so easy for people to fall into the routine I've just described. It takes an effort not to. I try to fill up my free time with meaningful things (although they may not be the most interesting things). The reason why I bring this up is because you said you wanted to know something about me and also to illustrate why I think your life seems so interesting!!I warned you this note was going to be disjointed, didn't I?
My personal record's pretty lame, i know!! i just read 'Girl with a pearl earring' abt Vermeer's infamous painting,...and i loved it!! hence....the morph!! anywho,...i've been quiet cos Bmm is driving me insane. if i have to do another pointless project tht keeps me up nights i will definitely lose it. that is,..if i have anything left to lose! hmm...i'm borrowing western lands from another bk freak like myself. as for Brother....second hand bookstores man..they're the best!! i've found a couple of really interesting bks there tht i wouldn't have found elsewhere. u need to give 'em a chance. even if they don't look too inviting from the outside, i promise....it's pure gold inside!! hehehe...tc ciao.
now, about your photo! is this you? your photo has a nice tone too. wild&mysterious, yet conservative and withdrawn. it sais: "come into my parlour, said the spider to the fly, I've got something to show you..."
oh nooo...it's made with a rather cheap digital camera but with a little magic touch of photoshop, it looks exquisite...I love turning regular photos into special things, even though I don't have a certain passioan for photography. i'm soo glad you liked it. it's me, you know ;-))))
well...how are you? it's almost one o'clock here and i'm watching a movie with Audrey Hepburn
Hmmm...here goes my list: beckett, tennessee williams, john updike, ayn rand, harper lee, milan kundera, gabriel garcia marquez, neil gaiman, terry pratchett, the bronte sisters, dickens, maugham, o henry, saki, heinrich boll, thomas bernhard, stendhal, dickinson, plath, murakami, victor hugo, jane austen, philip roth, vikram seth, rushdie and well the list just does not seem to end....
I'll be writing to you. soon. I promise. but now I'm so very restless, melancholic and can't gather myselfand my thoughts. but I will be writing to you, Tom Waits is fabulous. now I'm listening Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. read about the Devil. he's here with me, you know. you don't happen to have a yahoo messenger, do you?
yeah the joy of readng a book..unlike an ebook...so who are yr fav authors (pig on and please do not be brief)
Read Yehuda online and quite like him....I liked the labyrinth of solitude by paz but may be because it was prose...reading sandman over and over right now...lving it to the core...have u read haruki murakami
Not at all a secret....love yr shelf - dickinson and neruda are my favourite poets...besides plath of course...and paz is also nice but very political at times...
