re: Dry Tortugas - Tigris
The ferry is quite a bit cheaper, if you want to save some $. I've only ever taken the boat. The Dry Tortugas is my favorite thing to do in Key West, and it's not even close....

re: Suttree - Tigris
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. ...

[quote]the answers to who he really was as a person were right under his nose, he just never bothered to look inward and notice.[/quote] Interesting observation. It brings to mind Sheriff Bell in No Country and really goes to the core of what No Country is about. “It's a life's work to see yo...

re: Nassim Nicholas Taleb - Tigris
[quote]He explains it with minimal math in his other books like Black Swan and Antifragile[/quote] Yeah, you're right, I just lost track of the term "fat tail" and what it meant. Not too hard, the graph below illustrates it pretty well. [img]https://static2.seekingalpha.com/uploads/2018/11/30...

[quote]Lonesome Dove[/quote] That's as good an answer as any I can think of. 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. True Grit falls into the same category....

re: Nassim Nicholas Taleb - Tigris
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...

re: Sad songs that were remixed to be upbeat - Tigris
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...
