beyond the classics. Moby Dick, Gone With the Wind ect...
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Palahniuk fan as well||
I can't buy any good books here in China and I really want to read his latest, I think it's called Pygmy. I'm also a huge Kurt Vonnegut fan. It's hard to pick a favorite of his, but at the moment I'll go with Slapstick. Charles Bukowski is another must read IMO. My girlfriend has become really interested in American Literature as a way to better understand the American mentality and frighteningly has become a huge Bukowski fan in the process. She now believes we are all drunken maniacs. My all time favorite book is Richard Braughtigan's Trout Fishing in America. I'm definitely a better fisherman having read that book.

I had just started to become aware of recruiting and who the incoming freshman were. I had by chance stumbled upon The Big 33 game on TV in which a young Stevie Breaston was playing for Pennsylvania. If I remember correctly he had the first two touches of the ball for Pennsylvania, one a kickoff return for a touchdown and one a reverse for a touchdown. I remember being so excited for him to be a Wolverine. I also remember being a bit surprised that he was white as every time I read his name on the list of incoming freshman I assumed he was white because his name was Steve. I talked him up so much after that game and during his red-shirt year. I wanted him to be awesome because I felt like i discovered him and offered him a scholarship. Anyway, he turned out to be pretty decent. If my friends had a dollar for every time I mentioned I saw Breaston play in high school after he made a big play, they'd be rich.

to have insomnia while living on the other side of the world! If only I could explain the magnitude of insanity this situation is to my English work mates...... This would be a lot more fun if I could discuss this face to face with someone who knew what a Big Ten was.

This is a great scene and a pretty kick ass song.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||My favorite video at the moment is||
"Wild in the Streets" by Garland Jeffreys. The song itself is from the early 70's, though I'm assuming the video was made fairly recently. Garland was known for his sound, blending rock, soul, blues and reggae. The video is a montage of street scenes from the mid 70's in New York, presumably The South Bronx. If you've ever wondered what the Hip-Hop culture looked like in its infancy check the video out, it gives you a pretty good idea of what was going on during the Pre-Bling Era of Hip-Hop.

My Pistons jersey chaffed my left nipple a few years back. I was out of action for a week. Haven't worn it since. No sugarcoat.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Blueberry Morning||
If I was on a health kick I would get a box of Blueberry Morning. I would then proceed to eat the entire box in one sitting.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Cinnamon Toast Crunch for sure.||
I've been living in China for two years now and I am still going through cereal withdrawals. Every year my extended family would have a gift exchange for Christmas and every year without fail I would receive, along with a gift certificate to Best Buy, a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. There is not even proper milk over here let alone decent cereal. For breakfast the Chinese eat pretty much what they would eat for lunch. Noodles, lots of noodles. Sweet food isn't very popular over here, so a bowl of CTC would probably cause the average Chinese person to go into diabetic shock or go on a killing spree. I'm jonesin' for a fix..... If anybody could find it in their heart to send me a box of CMT I would give you the naming rights to my first born child. Seriously.

I see your avatar is a panda and your user name seems to refer to Chairman Mao. Are you currently located in China? If so were about? I'm living in Foshan, Guangdong.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Go Blue in China||
I've been living in China for two years and have on several occasions seen Chinese rocking some Michigan gear. I always give a Go Blue! shout out, but it only frightens people. Only once did someone know what I was talking about, but that was in Hong Kong.

I have a pretty cool portrait of Tom Harmon that takes up the back of my fore arm. I'll post a picture tomorrow. I'd do it now, but it's 3am (I live in China) and I'm drunk as hell. Operating a camera is beyond the level I can function at at the moment.

Three years ago I went as a box of wine, I had a couple bags of wine inside and poured people drinks all night, so that went well.
