re: Suttree - Tigris on 2/22/21 at 9:21 am
I didn't think Suttree was that hard a read, for Cormac. Especially when compared to something like Blood Meridian. Suttree might be my favorite McCarthy, that or NCFOM. I'm not sure I'll ever enjoy Blood Meridian all that much, as good as it is. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Honestly, though, my favorite books tend to be ones that I struggle with the first time, and that get better on re-reading. Lonesome Dove was greatness the first time through.

re: Nassim Nicholas Taleb - Tigris on 2/17/21 at 5:48 am
I've read a fair bit of Taleb and enjoy his contrarian approach to things. I followed him a bit on Twatter when covid first hit and he's been talking about fat tails for a while. And I still can't follow what he's talking about. Maybe he explains it in the book. A platform with a 280 character l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Sad songs that were remixed to be upbeat - Tigris on 2/12/21 at 1:06 pm
Pat Green and Natalie Maines do a nice, bouncy, upbeat version of Snowin on Raton (Townes van Zandt) on George's Bar. It sounds really good, and is completely out of character with what the song is saying, and how Townes sang it. The lyrics seem sort of upbeat until you pay attention to them, my g...
