did not like it
bookshelves: memoir, tone-down-the-drama-yo, never-trust-popular-opinion
Read in August, 2005

As previously stated, I'm against self-indulgent memoirs that merely serve as an expressive outlet for some whiny egotistical artiste to shit his pretentious, often wildly exaggerated stories all over me. The whole thing is a nightmare. I have no sympathy for him. I hate him, I hate his stupid stories and I never want to have anything to do with this book again.

On a more positive note, the book works well as kindling.
