Pulling the plug on Carsick. I just don't like it. Not going to bother reviewing it.

Glad you added your pulling the plug.

I was kind of interested in this. Saw him plug it the other day on Bill Maher.

Now... won't waste my time.

I only gave it a shot because he was on The Colbert Report and he did a great job hyping the book. The premise itself was very interesting. But after reading the first 3-4 chapters I was done. These chapters were clearly fiction and did not happen at all. Besides the stories being fake, I didn't want to waste my time reading about how he jacks every dude off.

No idea. I think it's geared to singular words that are profane and not necessarily a handful of words that make a profane statement.

I still haven't started the Pixar book.  It's too hot to read anything!

I looked in my little... note scrap book thing I have and saw this giant list of books I still want to get (including "The Martian" by Andy Weir).  That's gonna be a huge freakin' pile of pages that I might never get through.

I had over 150 books on my "To Read" list over on Goodreads. But I haven't been able to log into my account there for the better part of 6 months. So, I don't have a clue what I had in the pipeline of what to read next. I've tried resetting my password over there, but nothing works. I gave up.

Pen and paper, my friend, pen and paper.  I generate a LOT of scrap paper so I wind up writing this sort thing down... I wound up having to get one of those portfolio-style books just to keep them all in.  Now my scattered notes look FANTASTIC.  But in there is a list of all the DVDs I need to buy, books I'm missing, books I'm interested in reading, and audiobooks I haven't listened to yet.

That portfolio book was a lifesaver, it seems like too big a luxury for putting scrap notes into, but it makes a huge difference knowing exactly where everything is.  I always kept trying to use a proper notebook but I'd always forget about it, or put notes on scrap paper anyway, or I'd have to swap out notes and the whole thing wound up being disorganized.  This was the perfect marriage of both.  It's too bad they don't make them smaller (at least, the ones that are smaller are for photographs, and that's not what I wanted).
