Summer reading list:
1. Do you still read a newspaper regularly?
not at all. Not even the sunday paper. I read 9news.com on my cell phone.
2. What about magazines? Are you a subscriber?
oh yeah, crazy about magazines. I subscribe to Rolling Stone, Playboy, Popular Mechanics, Consumer Reports, and Guitar Aficionado
3. What is the last book you read?
Lies Chelsea Handler told me. Enjoying read, as all of her books are. If you haven’t read a Chelsea book yet, and you seek to start… start with ‘Are you there, Vodka? It’s me, Chelsea’. Oh, and since you asked, I actually archive my reading list here on the site. Updated monthly, as I burn through a book about once a month
4..My favorite part of magazines are the short stories. Do you have a favorite short story?
absolutely. My favorite thing about literature is short stories. I used to write them, too. I would say ‘Hills like White Elephants’ from Hemingway is very memorable. Lot of subtext in there. Shit gets heavy after you read it a few times.
5.What do you read the most on the web?
news. Music news, especially. The best site for music news is NME.com > It is a British site, and they are usually about 24 hours ahead of the American news cycle. Plus, they are snarky and don’t censor swearing. I am especially endlessly fascinated with Courtney Love. She may be the greatest celebrity train wreck in history. I mean, she is Charlie Sheen crazy… but has been doing it for 20 years. I mean, try this ten page gem from last weekend.
