rubbish john on 2001-07-12 14:23 [#00014490]

every one is on about favourite albums and favourite films -
what about books?

i really like bret easton ellis' shit esp. 'american psycho'
and 'less than zero'
anymore for anymore?


Chimp Systems from Tweak Valley on 2001-07-12 14:30 [#00014491]

'American Psycho' is a winner. . . My favourite book of all
time is 'Lolita' by Vladamir Nabokov. It's really funny and
quite mind-bending, a bit like a good AFX tune.
Incidentally, if anyone out there can get hold of 'Ocean Of
Sound' by David Toop then grab it, it's a top book about
abstract/experimental/electronic music, and it's got a big
chapter covering AFX/Mu-Ziq etc. It also covers Dub, Jungle,
Ambient, Industrial, African Tribal stuff. . .

yeh, i remember that book being mentioned on alchemy
(*sniffle). how long has it been around?


Chimp Systems from Tweak Valley on 2001-07-12 14:57 [#00014500]

I reckon it must about five years old now. My mate spilt
water all over my copy then put it on the radiator, and it
went a mad new shape. Which somehow adds to it.


H3XAN3 [C6H14] from Melb. on 2001-07-12 15:01 [#00014503]

in answering this question i would have to say "Firedancer"
by Victor Kelleher


Wizards Teeth on 2001-07-12 15:16 [#00014508]

On the subject of books about films :

I was going to write a screen play for the oxford

I stopped after about one minute as I realised that the
script would lack depth and not many people would go to the
cinema to see such a film.


Barrett, Syd from Cambridge on 2001-07-12 15:40 [#00014523]

Survivor - Chuck Palianiuk (however you spell that...)
The Solitare Mystery - Joustin Gardner
No Logo - Naomi Klien (could be spelled wrong as well...)


Chimp Systems from Tweak Valley on 2001-07-12 15:43 [#00014525]

No Logo's really popular now isn't it? I might get some
T-Shirts run off with the book's cover on the front. My mate
Barry owns this little sweat shop down in Hackney. You could
sell them down the market to students for a tenner... I
could make a fortune...

My favourite book is written by Eric Thomsan and is
realeased on Bloomsbury paperbacks, it is called "Dougal and
the blue cat"
and is about as trippy as putting all the stuff in your
house (furniture n stuff) on one side! and crying "ash kalah


map[warp/rephlex-aholic] from CH - Mulligan on 2001-07-12 15:48 [#00014532]

i like Ocean of Sound .....many artists are in....from brian
eno to kraftwerk, aphex too, muzak things.....from the old
music with all you want to know about silence, tunes and


Wizards Teeth on 2001-07-12 15:57 [#00014544]

Do you think it would be good to right a whole book about
silence ?


dingle berry from on a small plastic chair breathing fire on 2001-07-12 16:01 [#00014549]

john cage wrote music containing silence besides as a human
you are never trueley silent there is always some sort of
sound to listen too! loads of stuff to write about chop!


map[warp/rephlex-aholic] from CH - Mulligan on 2001-07-12 16:12 [#00014553]

silence can't the book. it shows rich
experiences in his dreams


Wizards Teeth on 2001-07-12 16:13 [#00014554]

Chop chop.

I will make a song made out of sounds recorded only in a
Butchers Shop :

1. Sound of meat being chopped

2. Sound of meat being moved

3. Sound of bull being killed

4. Sound of old woman complaining about price of sausage


hevquip from an egren's coffee shop on 2001-07-12 16:22 [#00014559]

i remember reading 'thief of always' by neil gaiman or clive
barker when i was younger. i like that book. 'the
regulators' by one of richard bachman (aka stephen king) is
also pretty good. i am currently reading 'man watching'. it
is a book on human behavior and cultural mannerisms. it has
much content and is very informative. another book i need to
finish is my book on logic (possibly, it's rather boring)
and 'culture against man', a book on how our views can
conflict with or agree with what society and media is saying
or how it is tricking us.


dirty little bitch on 2001-07-12 16:55 [#00014585]

silence can't exist??????
i thought that sound was the movement and vibrations of
particals, therefore silence should exist in a vacuum.

Thiefofalways from Germany on 2001-07-12 16:57 [#00014588]

C. S. Lewis: Out of the Silent Planet, i guess it would be
considered sci-fi, but really its not as much about that as
it is about the way mankind behaves
Michael Herr: Dispatches
Dalton Trumbo: Johnny Got His Gun
H.P. Lovecraft: Ex-Oblivione, not a book, its only a very
short story, but it is i think his best.


WhoIsNot on 2001-07-12 17:09 [#00014591]

Favourite book? Books? Let me dodge this question and be
scarred on the surface only. So. Favourite authors: Albert
Camus, Michael Ende, Osho, Vonnegut, Milton, Blake. Erm,
wait, I'm lying. There's a lot more. Don't wanna bore
anyone, that's why I stopped listing them. Enough of me


hevquip from an egren's coffee shop on 2001-07-12 17:22 [#00014595]

i've read some camus in my humanities class. i believe it
was about a prisoner given the choice of incarceration or
freedom. interesting story. a teacher in my poetry class
said one of my poems reminded him of the writings of camus.
i like many philosphers writings. i believe what kierkagard
had to say about existence was very intriguing and concept
of existential dread and that we fear our own mortality when
we realized that we will cease to exist one day. blahbidy
blah. all this might get the topic off of subject, so i'll

Sound can't exist on the moon because there is no atmosphere
and thus no air molecules to vibrate causing the sound.
However, you are correct, your own body would be able to
function as a medium for carrying sound on the moon. I
imagine that if you fart in your space suit, the sound would
echo back and forth throughout your body forever, not being
able to disperse itself into the air.

I like a lot of books designed for children, like "someone
in the family drinks too much". Also "human evolution"
"evolution isn't what it used to be" "the selfish gene",
encyclopedias, dictionaries, any non-fiction almost. I
didn't like "a brief history of time" by stephen hawking. I
found the material full of loop holes, heh heh heh.


thanskomuch from over here on 2001-07-12 20:55 [#00014636]

catch 22
nip the buds shoot the kids

Scary Bear on 2001-07-12 22:12 [#00014646]

I like Modern Mysticism by Michael Gellert, Timothy Leary is
always interesting. No Logo is the next one on my list. Oh
and I reckomend Lucid Dreaming by Pamela Ball I am going to
be re-reading it this summer holiday and learn to dream
propperly. It takes pure dedication and stuff. After 9
months I finally have my own room in the boarding house so
it's my next big thing.


SWAI from Denmark on 2001-07-12 22:25 [#00014648]

Read it!!!

who here thinks the Harry potter books are good. i know i
sound like a pansy but... they captivate me like something
captivated me as when one was six years old! Sorry but it


|REFLEX| from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 2001-07-12 23:06 [#00014659]

HP lovecraft was very interesting to say the least. I loved
a lot of his works..... he wrote some extreemly
thoughtful/interesting things in his time. Wow.. he was
nutz. I like it.

Did anyone ever read about the Mad Arab? The Bible before
the Bible?. The nEcrimonicon? Its supposedly true.... it
describes events and such, detailed comments on how to enter
the 7 gates of hell, and to dispell deamons across the land,
I have it somewhere, I actually read it all once and it
scared me shitless! Its not the "satanic" bible if you will,
nothing like that at all actually. Its just extreemly
fucking crazy, I reccomend this to ANYONE with half a brain
and a will to try something different.


hevquip from an egren's coffee shop on 2001-07-12 23:13 [#00014661]

reflex: where did you get your copy? i've tried to find it,
but failed. i remember a girl had it, some weird witch type,
but she wouldn't let me see it.


|REFLEX| from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 2001-07-12 23:25 [#00014668]

hevquip: YEAH! Thats the book im talking about, yeah you can
search Ebay, or amazon or something for it, im considering
it because I can't find my copy, actually this guy I know
had it and I took it from him. He was a speed freak/crack

There is a little shop down on whyte ave. [like the strip,
BUSY night life, and BUSY day life down there] called the
SANCTUARY which is for goths and weirdo freak people [who
can be really nice] and they have many books, I saw it there
once, check your local oddity/goth shops!
