Stop it, Baron

I dedicate this to the people in Queens. A gentleman I know by the name of Dave Hill made this and the first time I saw it I laughed heartily. You'll only get this if you live in NYC and have seen this local commercial.

I can't buy anymore books. That's what happens when I start getting money. I'll wander into a bookstore and just pick up the first 5 things that my eye catches. What can I say? I like knowledge. Eh, ladies? Knowledge.

These are the last few things I picked up.
Misquoting Jesus by Bart D. Ehrman - heard about this in TIME in a little snippet from Craig as in THE Craig from Craigslist.

Microthrills by Wendy Spero - had met Wendy before but was reintroduced to her at a few NYC comedy shows. She's very funny and might be the single most adorable person I've ever met.

The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz - saw this a long time ago when I purchased "Mediated" which is one of my new favorite books.

Soul on Ice by Eldridge Cleaver - a classic book of essays written during the 60s by a disenfranchised angry black man. My cup of tea.

Lew Hunter's Screenwriting 434 - a friend suggested I get this if I want to write movies. It helped him a great deal.

Death etc. by Harold Pinter - a small collection of short plays, poems and speeches by my favorite playwright and Nobel Prize winning author.

I still have many books I haven't read. I need to just read EVERYTHING on my bookshelf. I don't know what it is about having a bunch of books on it that makes me feel like I have an identity. I've read maybe 75% of what I have.

Git ta readin!

I'm assuming you meant the one word i mispelled in this entire post. "Favortive." I actually meant that to be spelled that way. Its an expression I used to use with friends. of course you can't hear me doing the voice to go with it. I changed it to the correct spelling to make you feel better, Nitpicker.

The real frightening thing about middle age is the knowledge that you'll grow out of it "Doris Day"

Pinter is for fags.
Ionesco is for assholes.
Albee is God.

However you need to bring your ass back to Pittsburgh because I'm going to produce "Waiting For Lefty" in a factory basement and I want you to be in it.

God knows you can't have Clifford Odets without Baron Fucking Vaughn.
