On Deck

...wherein we listen to what Lawrence's movers and shakers are moving and shaking. to.

  1. Do Make Say Think, "You, You're a History in Rust"
  2. Menomena, "I Am the Fun Blame Monster!"
  3. Arcade Fire, "Neon Bible"
  4. Jack Kerouac, "Blues and Haikus"
  5. Mum, "Finally We Are No One"


...wherein local TV connoisseurs intimate what keeps them on their couches.

  1. Modern Marvels "I watch a lot of History Channel. I like Modern Marvels. You know, there's always something very modern and very marvelous on."
  2. The Real Housewives of Orange County "We call it 'The Real Desperate Orange Housewives'-my girlfriend got me going on that. The real beauty of that f*cked up show is that it's one thing when you're watching 18-year-old chicks who are totally empty and leading this totally surreal existence-but it's another thing entirely when you're watching 40-year-old women. It's like 'Come on, you should know better.' Between that and Modern Marvels you get pretty much everything you need."

Bound Up

Currently reading: "Black Boy," by Richard Wright "It's about the life of Richard Wright, about him growing up in the south and becoming a writer. It was recommended to me by a friend and it's very interesting. He didn't realize there was such a thing as racism until he met white people."

One book everyone should read: One Book Everyone Should Read: "The Freedom Writers Diary," by Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers "It's not a great book in how it's written, but there is a lot of meaning. It's about education, so I of course like it because that's what I'm studying."
