ray333:When I tried to log in at work on Thursday and Friday I discovered that my employer had installed a new internet filter. sdbikecommuter.com is now off-limits due to "adult language!" Ironically, I can still log on to sdfixed and other profanity-laden forums, so go figure! I'll just have to post when I get home from now on.
beany:I haven't read a book in over a month. Have too many ponderous books I feel that I have to complete. Almost tempted to bus to work so I can get some reading time in.
ray333:I've been on an apocalypse kick recently. Recommended reading: The Road by Cormac McCarthy - a compelling novella, read it in one sitting, couldn't put it down, film version starring Viggo Mortensen and Robert Duvall is incredibly bleak, gory, and faithful to the story line. Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank - pen name of a retired defense official, realistic and well thought out. Ape and Essence by Aldous Huxley - a century after nuclear war destroys the Northern Hemisphere a scientific expedition from New Zealand "rediscovers" California after the radioactivity cools down enough to make the trip possible; Professor Poole is captured by the locals after making landfall in LA and falls in love with a "normal" woman who is a freak in her society because she is fertile all year long, most other women are in heat once a year, this is the only time mating is allowed; grave robbers loot Forest Lawn for the vestments of the dead and deformed infants are sacrificed once a year to placate Satan at worship services in the Coliseum. On the Beach by Nevil Shute, pen name of another cold war defense official - the Northern Hemisphere is destroyed by nuclear war; the radioactive cloud slowly and inexorably descends southward and engulfs Australia and New Zealand where the last U.S. and Royal Navy ships are stationed; mysterious radio signals from the West Coast of North America are investigated; doomed love story between a hard-drinking Aussie woman and a U.S. ship captain whose family perished in New Jersey.Happy reading and Merry Christmas!

beany:...The loud boom boxes playing whatever music is also an attempt to reach people outside the little metal moving box of doom - "I am cool cause i listen to NPR or death metal or whatever".
