Oh, i forgot, i've read that too, I thought it was great.

it's funny you mention that, because i was just about to post and say that currently, i am reading Moby Dick (this is my third stab at it - it is unbelievably fucking dense)

If you don't like hemingway that's a pity, i genuinely think he is a brilliant writer. His stories avoid all the bullshit of heroism and glamour and talk of a world in which people do what they have to and what they can do and love and die doing it.

Between him and Graham Greene the essence of modern tragedy has been realised.
i check my hair at the elevator mirror and the highlight of my day when I say hi to a girl who's opposite of the elevator door at my floor. the one i went out with.
after that, it's the same old fucking thing all over again.
