    I am only a few chapters in but so far it is pretty good.




    I am just finishing this book, it is truly a horrific book on what the Japanese did in Nanking in the late '30s. The Japanese Imperial Army killed about 300,000 Chinese in an orgy of bloodshed and carnage: beheading contests, massive gang rapes, burning people alive ect ect. It rivals, if not passes what the Nazis did in terms of pure cruelity. This book of course outrages Japan, who has never accepted responsibility for any of it's actions in WWII and Japanese right-wing ultra nationalists have done every thing in thier power to "debunk" this book. But the author has answered every charge and challenge with overwhelming proof of what she has stated in this book. Sadly, the author commited suicide last year after battling depression and "inner demons", said to have been caused inpart by hear years of involvement researching the Rape of Nanking.



    A entertaining history of the "hardcore" or "second wave" punk scene in the US. It is not perfect and is biased at times and is wrong about certain things but it still is entertaining. This book will probably appeal more to those who "were there" or into punk rock but it has some good stories and great pics that should interest any fan of music. For a guy like me it sort of bring back memories of when I was kid. I forgot what a tough, crazy, badass I was back in the day.

    Read Inca Gold by Clive Cussler. It was entertaining, but there was nothing particularly special about it. I liked the Inca angle, though.

    Currently reading Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco. I read about this book on Amazon.com a while ago, but I hadn't read it. Upon Hatter's recommendation, I picked it up. I'll tell anyone else, just as he told me, you have to work your way through the first 80 pages or so. What could have been written in one chapter is stretched out to 80 some odd pages due to the author going off on tangent after tangent that doesn't really add anything to the story. But, I've been told and have read that he has a reason for doing this. I guess I'll find out soon enough. I haven't been able to read too much lately, but I've finally gotten to the real story and, hopefully, the tedious reading at the beginning will have been worth it.

    Have you ever guessed somebody's gender wrong? There's no recovering from that. You just gotta move on, cause you ain't wriggling outta nothin'.
