Not no more, dave.
I think I take after me dad's dad who died afor I was born.
My dad said he used to say....'money's round boy and it was meant to roll.'
Luckily she is very good with money and allows me pocket money now and then just like me mum did with me dad.
If not then I would have been on a massive spunking spree by now.
And by spunking I mean......aah f**k it!
Interperet it as you want.

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.

You've never read Dune? Really?!? Some classics there, I see you're getting into sci-fi properly, even after not liking Banks and his Culture saga (as I said, I didn't take to it either but I still love sci-fi). Let us know what you think of the Endymion books though, I really loved the Hyperion pair, 2 of the best books I've read. But I rarely go for 'extra' books, you know when a story has been told and then they start adding it, like the newer Foundation books utside the original trilogy and the extra Dune books.

No, never read Dune. I've never seen the film either although I always remember seeing it in the videoshop years ago. I decided to start getting into sci fi books as I've read most of the good fantasy series and most of the others seem fairly generic so I needed a change. I checked a few best of lists and them books plus a few others were regular mentions.

Bout time you get out of the fantasy game. I've not read as much as you and I'm already bored with it. It's just wanking, no message, just some guy sat at home wanking and just creating some world and contrived magic system and then writing it down. There's no point, it's just making worlds for the sake of it, just self-gratification, it's just wanking.

You need to get into classics and stuff though, get some Dickens and Dostoyevsky down you.

Have you read any good collections of short stories either of you could recommend? I'm not great at reading full books but I seem to do ok with those.

I have two songs relating to Charles Bukowski, one's an instrumental on top of a poem of his (The Genius of the Crowd, the song uses the same name) by Whitey, the other's by modest Mouse and is just called Bukowski. Two great songs.

I really like the poem used in the first song there so I'll give some of his other stuff a try, thanks. :)

Heard HMV have the exclusive steel tin Skyfall blurays so I quickly popped on last night and preordered. No chance I'm missing out in that beauty! £16 well spent I think, especially when you factor in its only £1 more than the standard bluray.
