bennry73: Just finished a few days ago

I just graduated, and have been spending lots of time reading. I just finished Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore by Ray Loriga. It was written as Burroughs would have if he were from our generation. Excellent, random, and one of the few pieces of fiction I have managed to read recently.

I'm currently working on Tao Te Ching by Lao Tsu. It's obviously spiritual, and I ran some stuff by my conservative mother, and she thought it was the Bible...then told me I was joining a cult...heh..crazy conservatives.

Next in line is one of John Cage's BOOKS...(yes books), called Silence: Lectures and Writings, which is a collection of the lectures Cage gave in the 40's and 50's. Some called it Dadaism, but it's definately a different approach that we don't get to see that often anymore.

You know, I have bookmarks half way through about 20 books right now, I guess I'll list them as I get through them, and when I have something to say about each. These three are what I've been thinking about this last week.

That Ray Loriga book looks really good. I'm putting it on my list of books I want to check out.
