Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu

I'm reading Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-5. Enjoying it so far but I preferred Cat's Cradle. I've also been reading a lot of Western novels recommended by my dad. I didn't like Steigner's All the Little Live Things. All the Pretty Horses (McCarthy) is fantastic though.

I wasn't paying attention and so I had Song and Dempsey playing, but I still did pretty well with Sinclair as captain picking up 12 points. And yeah, agreed on Arsenal. They dominated the match. Just gotta finish.

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu

I just read Moby-Dick and then The Memory of Old Jack. Moby-Dick was basically what I expected it to be. It was very dramatic, tragic, and, in some ways, cliche. I imagine when it came out it was very, very original in the way it took greek tragedy and put it in a new situation, but it whale-hunting...

Re: Actual (Association) Football Talk.

That was a good game (Spain-Italy). I was a bit surprised that there were no strikers starting for Spain, but then again, they did get by well enough. I really liked watching the Italian defence as well. Quite a few yellows as well--some of them seemed a bit weak, or for accidental touches (Torres)...
