Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

Our latest Muzak CD at the store has a Scissor Sisters song...

It's a cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb."

There is something fundamentally wrong when you set a Pink Floyd song to a disco mix.

Especially when the singer channels his inner Bee Gee "I-I-I gotta get up and on with the show".

It's wrong, wrong. Not quite sick, but still wrong.

PowerBar wrappers apparently have metal in them.

Johnny Cash's 'My Mother's Hymn Book' is a superb album.

Johnny Cash is a musical legend, on par with the true greats. I'm still pissed that fatty-mcfatass won over Joaquin Last year for best actor.

So hitting them with a few seconds of defrost to soften them up is not a good idea.

I just sampled the album "Black Holes and Revelations" by Muse last night. Not bad. Sounds a bit like U2 with Bohemian Rhapsody influences.

Don't know the Scissor Sisters unless I've heard them without knowing it was them.

Just because Cash was great doesn't mean Joaquin's portrayal of him was (although I can't really say since I haven't seen it; just not sure about the logic behind the connection).

His portrayal of Cash was great, though, I figured everyone knew that so it didn't need explaination. Those were two disjointed statements really, I didn't mean to make a connection.

Maybe that powerbar had a secret government microchip in it. I think you'd better try microwaving another one just to be sure.

Bobby Flay pisses me off.

Ooh, I hate Bobby Flay.

I can't stand Emeril - he makes the audience applaud each time he proves his ability to add salt to a dish and crap. Ridiculous.

I like Rachael Ray. She cooks like Lummox. :)

Working in the library is a good place to get ideas for character names, what with all the authors and patrons and book characters and historical figures, but I never write them down to remember for later. This time I will. Kerven.

So, Mr. YS Libarian, what are some good kids books to read for the challenge? And don't give me anything with teenage angst or "unique" girls who think they are special just because they take black and white photos of their feet.

So what kind of a book do you think you would like? Humor? Fantasy? Buddy? Issues? Historical? Do you at all like the sound of the glossary from King Dork, that I mentioned in the "Hobbit No More" post recently? Tell me a few J/YA books you've read that you've liked.

Hmmm... I'm on kind of a sci-fi fantasy kick lately thanks to Firefly. I don't really intend to read many J or Ya books, but I'll participate. I usually prefer J and I haven't read much YA, it seems to all be the same kind of angsty after school special crap.

I'm rereading Terry Pratchett's Tiffany Aching trilogy (well, rereading the first two, since the third one is new), and I have Whales on Stilts by M. T. Anderson lined up. Nothing says good read like Pratchett's The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, though.

I'll second Pratchett and anything by M. T. Anderson. The Bartimeaus trilogy (first book: Amulet of Samarkand) if you haven't read them. I have a feeling you would like Scrib and Monsieur Eek by David Ives. If you haven't ever read Captain Underpants, you really should; not quite mature enough to be your sense of humor, but the 3rd grade version of it. Also Franny K. Stein. Oh, I bet you'll like Artemis Fowl. On a more serious and less escapist level, you might like Postcards from No Man's Land. Peeps by Scott Westerfeld. Also So Yesterday. And anything else by him.

Tell me which of those is hitting or missing the mark and I'll add a few more.
