Every time I read "www2" all I can think is "world war three" or something similar.

last time I went to the nerd cons people were all talking about creating a second internet to get things back to how they were back in the day before the internet was filled with shit.
I think it's a good idea: mainly because I can't find anything on the net anymore that actually *useful*

I think one of my friends is working on the project but I haven't talked to him since the inicident last summer at the cave party.

My last words on Pax Acidus are this:

I really dig Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood is the only person with a western moustache who I respect and I love the duet Summer Wine.

Nancy Sinatra is cool. I almost caught a performance of her at Bumbershoot a few years ago but it was sold out (you know how Bumbershoot is...if you're not in line soon enough...). Lee Hazelwood I know nothing about but have read his name plenty of times.

This Saturday I am going to a book reading by Joe Boyd, producer of Nick Drake and other Brit folk acts. His new book is called "White Bicycles:Making Music in the 60's". There's even a few chapters about Nick in it! ;) ;)

There is a disc called The Trip by Jarvis Cocker and he plays some Lee Hazlewood among other brilliant people. The Trip is a 2-disc collection of his favorite songs. I highly reccomend it. As in fucking get it.

The album Nancy & Lee is available on itunes. I think Mc would like it if he doesn't already have it. It's got the original version of Some Velvet Morning on it.

Oh and if I do have anything (in closing) to say about Pax Acidus I say I am proud of the short stories we wrote. I think they stand up tall to any short fiction collectiont ever. I can't say the same for the Poetry section. Kitten had some quite good stuff.

Actually now that you mention it, I think McC had a double LP of a variety of artists doing Hazelwood songs.

So what's your take on the future of this sort of site, Sloth? Or is there one?

My favorite novel is being turned into a goddamn movie

Post by mccutcheon » Fri Mar 23, 2007 11:37 pm

LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, who played ill-fated lovers in the 1997 smash hit "Titanic," are reuniting for a drama about postwar disillusionment, the DreamWorks movie studio said Friday.

"Revolutionary Road" will be directed by Winslet's husband, British filmmaker Sam Mendes, who won an Oscar for directing 1999's dysfunctional family drama "American Beauty."

The DreamWorks project, based on the 1961 novel by Richard Yates, revolves around a suburban couple caught between their hopes for a life of art, culture and sophistication and the everyday drudgery of boring jobs and domesticity.

"Revolutionary Road" is considered a masterwork of modern American literature, and was named one of the top 100 novels of all time by Time magazine.

In "Titanic," DiCaprio's working-class character fell in love with a wealthy socialite played by Winslet aboard the doomed ocean liner that sank in the icy North Atlantic in 1912.

It became the highest-grossing movie of all time, raking in more than $1.8 billion in global ticket sales, and made DiCaprio and Winslet household names.

Both DiCaprio and Winslet were nominated for Oscars this year, for thriller "Blood Diamond" and drama "Little Children," respectively. DiCaprio has earned three Oscar nominations and Winslet five.

So does this mean you're happy about this or does it suck?

Reading all that was very interesting for a person such as myself who knows not a damn thing about the movie industry of the last many years. I do remember Titanic being really popular. God that was ages ago.

Well, I'm sure it's better as a book than the movie will be, I mean, isn't everything? I will definitely try to read that book when I get done with the Nico book I'm getting which a few people on the other board said was actually quite funny...it's called "Songs They Don't Play On The Radio", I'm pretty sure that's the name of it. She didn't write it of course, it's just stories of Nico and her band over the years etc. Whatever. It's supposed to be funny.

Tomorrow I'm going to be in the same room with someone who knew Nick Drake!!!!!! Ahem. Sorry, I can't help it, I'm excited about this. I mean...oh god. And I think he might have some interesting things to say about Dylan as well. But never mind.

Anyway, please continue this thread. I can't pretend to be happy to see Pax go. I had a bad dream last night.

Morrissey in a Smiths song on Meat Is Murder: "To Pretend To Be Happy/Could Only Be Idiocy"
oh I know what song that is! "What She Said", isn't it? Or am I wrong? Yes it is! I remember the lyrics now.

I think the first time I wanted this site to end was in 1999 during a particularly bad hangover. All things must pass.

Now that Mc is ready for life in the big beyond I am not going to stop it. Time put the barrell in our mouths and pull the trigger.
