A great classic. Jack London's style and voice is powerful and poignant. The story is about a dog, and I didn't know that until reading the several pages. It's a very good book--especially for dog owners who love their dogs. Jack London is one of tho ...more

This book had a lot of buzz in the fragrance groups that I frequent. I had high hopes for it, and for the most part, I think it is a good book, but it lost me about halfway in.

The book is kind of a memoir of someone who is a perfume junky and became

Completely stupid. This is a highly praised book and is considered a classic. I assumed it was actually about something out. I did not expect to read a dark comedy about war, and I really didn't expect it to be not funny and an exercise in non-reason ...more

Probably one of the most important books in decades. It was written in 1976 and still is more than relevant today. It traces the patterns of modern (and post-modern) thought from the ancient Greeks to today and claims that modern thought is based upo ...more

Maya Angelou
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Patrick Süskind
“This scent had a freshness, but not the freshness of limes or pomegranates, not the freshness of myrrh or cinnamon bark or curly mint or birch or camphor or pine needles, not that of a May rain or a frosty wind or of well water... and at the same time it had warmth, but not as bergamot, cypress, or musk has, or jasmine or daffodils, not as rosewood has or iris... This scent was a blend of both, of evanescence and substance, not a blend, but a unity, although slight and frail as well, and yet solid and sustaining, like a piece of thin, shimmering silk... and yet again not like silk, but like pastry soaked in honey-sweet milk - and try as he would he couldn't fit those two together: milk and silk! This scent was inconceivable, indescribable, could not be categorized in any way - it really ought not to exist at all. And yet there it was as plain and splendid as day.”
Patrick Süskind, Perfume The Story of a Murderer

Nick Jones Hey! Thought I'd let you know I picked up a copy of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman: The Dream Hunters.

I'm putting sole blame on you if I don't like it :-P


So, what did you think of the Gunplay preview?

message 2: by Nick

Nick Jones LOL! Have you seen There Will Be Blood? You're seriously going to like this spoof if you did. It's called "There will be Bud" F-ing hilarious... check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9ClsO...

Nick Jones Here for the booze eh? :-) I said that at my brother's wedding... I didn't quite get the reaction I was hoping for. I laughed nonetheless. Sometimes you just have to dance to your own tune. Thanks for adding me… you just about have me convinced to pick-up The Sandman. That is, if I ever get through Watchmen. At my current pace, I should be done with it sometime this summer :-P
