Ayn Rand, Wulf Zendik and Hunter Thompson...

Posted to What Are You Reading?




Lately I've found myself so sick of the red-white and Blue bullshit in the media that I when I go to my bookcase and look for a chance to engage my imagination and get a grip on an alternate reality - I don't want to just do time in another world.... I want something that moves me, makes me feel like there's life somewhere in the world, intelligence, someone who believes in something... something worth thinking about... and for weeks now I've pretty much concentrated on bits and pieces from some of my favorite books - the writers I think have something worth thinking about... and although Vonnegut, Rand and Zendik are all pretty different they all believe in people using their intelligence to live a grand life, whether crazy(Thompson), or sane (Zendik) it's preferable to boredom and conformity...
