    PLease see Oscar in the random pics thread. He's my parents (although we got him when I was 13; 16 years ago) and he's a maine coon with a heart defect, so, not only is he old, but his head is small due to the heart issue. He got a sonogram when he was little, and he had all the fur on his chest shaved off for that. Then we had to give him an aspirin and a beta blocker every day for 10 years. When we took him off that, we figured he wouldn't last much longer. That was 6 years ago.

    York, are you mocking me, you son of a bitch?

    (I kid, I kid)...

    EDIT: I just saw pictures of Oscar. His head doesn't look that small. Hope he stays healthy for years.

    The Curse of Lono is probably his best work
    Is that the one that starts out on the plane where the guy's arm is all blue,because he dropped something in the toilet?I read just that chapter years ago,and it's gotta be the funniest thing I've ever read.

    Breakjaw, Yes that is Ackerman's arm that gets blue from the toilet on the airplane. Believe me, the rest of the book is every bit as funny as that chapter. And HST's bleak, dark view of Hawaii, coupled with his belief that he is the God "Lono" incarnated (contrived at times to frighten the locals, but definitely quite real in HST's mind)... It's just a dizzying book that takes his Fear & Loathing persona and puts a more "true" face on it. You get more of HST the man, rather than HST the caricature. I think the only version of the book is published by Taschen. It's hardback, about 200 pages, and contains huge illustrations by Ralph Steadman (every couple of pages)... It's on my cofee table at all times, and many of my friends have purchased it for the illustrations alone. In my mind, it's head and shoulders above anything else he's done.

    Funniest part involves Hunter clubbing a Marlin to death on a fishing expedition. Highest of comedy.

    Breakjaw, I wish I could somehow Bballarl you the entire book. Honestly, if you thought that first chapter was funny, you'll be laughing out loud during parts of it. It may be tough to get and kinda expensive, but I'd recommend it highly. Think of it as a great novel that can also be a nice prop at home (ie coffee table book). Sell your bibles and buy this book!

    apparently there were 2000+ people on this board earlier today. I'd say the BMOTW can continue, but, it'll be people we don't know.

    Sorry I'm late to this one...any thread that mentions Dr. Thompson, Kerouac, Miles, etc is tops.
    No mention of the exhistentialists? Camus, Beckett, Kakfa...brilliant works.

    Forgive me...I'm a former lit major, and this stuff gets me giddy...

    Kafka is one of my favorites, as well. The Trial is brilliant, and the Castle is quite excellent.

    Camus-I read "The Stranger" sometime ago, but I was fairly stoned during the entire reading and forget whether or not I enjoyed it, so obviously it didn't make quite the impression of Kafka.

    Certainly while not an "existentialist"- I love Louis Ferdinand Celine's works. Journey to the End of the Night is in my top 10 novels of all time. Almost flawless...

    Tom, I think BMOTW can continue on the new board. The people checking in for lineup complaints/desires will slowly disappear and it will be down to mainly he first generation peeps (longtime boardies) and 2nd generation (people like me) with a few newbies scattered in. Regardless, there are plenty of other BMOTW's that are eligible.

    Nothing, you should check out "Why androids dream of electric sheep" by Philip K Dick. It is the novel that was turned into the movie BladeRunner. Exhistential sci-fi at its finest!

    Also, Best Camus is "The Fall" in my opinion. Amazing read.

    I'll check those out. I just finished reading "American Psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis and was amazed how much better and even more twisted the book was than the movie. I'm not sure if Easton Ellis is a great writer or one bad morning away from going Jack the Ripper on us...

    Now I'm being forced to read books on chaos theory for class, so no more fun reading for me (with the exception of an occassional Deepak Chopra chapter or two from "Life After Death").

    but york, why not recycle (for the new board) some of the older BMOTW's? Surely, lives have changed.

    But then we'd be accused of being an unwelcoming clique. Besides, i can't stand all these new people and don't like having them around.

    Tom, I love your logic in that last post. No recycling because then we'd be labeled a clique by the new people, but new people suck anyways. Again, I think some of these people will die off, leaving a few new quality peeps...
