Banned stuff is fun

Layton got me Lest We Forget, The Best Of. It's not the special edition that you can only get off MM's website but whatever. I don't really care because I still like it. The other copy has the banned video of (s)aint on it. I'd like to be able to see that but because it's banned I don't think I'll ever be able to.

Speaking of banned stuff, when he was over here today I asked him if he could pick me up a list of banned books from the library tomorrow when he goes boffing. I read that Where's Waldo was banned for having a lady laying face down on the beach with her top off. That's such a stupid reason to ban a book.

Errr... there was something I was thinking about writing about a couple days back but because I didn't type it out then I seem to have forgotten it. Hmmm. Oh well. Mom has once again taken my online time and stuck it on the chopping block. I've now only got 3 hours. 4 was bad enough, it's really surprising how fast 4 hours can go by, now it's 3. So stupid. *sigh*

Books I need to read...

Sleeping Beauty trilogy --A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice)
Snow, Glass, Apples --Neil Gaiman
The Sisters Grimmer
A Wrinkle in Time --Madeleine L’Engle
The Headless Cupid --Zilpha Keatley Snyder
Heather Has Two Mommies --Leslea Newman
The Catcher in the Rye --J.D. Salinger
Coraline --Neil Gaiman
Frankenstein --Mary Shelley (I'm pathetic for not having read this long ago)
1984 --Geroge Orwell (need to finish it)
Legend --David Gemmel
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix --J.K. Rowling
The Lovely Bones --Alice Sebold (reccomended by jane)
Lucky --also by Alice Sebold
Farenheit 451 --Ray Bradbury

There's a start, now what else?

I don't know what books you've read, but here's my list: The Naked Ape bye Desmond Morris. I have to recommend that to everyone. It's fantastic. Slaughter-House Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Chess With A Dragon by David Gerrold, and Geek Love by Katherine Dunn. I've got a HUGE list if you need more.

There are books on your list I need to read as well. I'm most excited about reading Order of the Phoenix, because I'm a nerd.

The Naked Ape rules. It's like a unbiased look at humans. It's like reading about an animal, all the habits and everything. It's really really good. Not all of it is right, but it's still one of my favorite books.

J.D. Salinger rocks man
I'm glad you have Catcher in the Rye on your list, that's the one book I would have told you to add if you didn't have it already. Great book. And just because most of the books on the ALA challenged/banned list - http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/bannedbooksweek/bbwlinks/100mostfrequently.htm - are good books that retarded people think need to be banned for retarded reasons... you should probably add some of those to your list.

Yeah, I had layton pick up a copy of that when he was at the library thursday. I would have printed it out myself but a windows update seems to have somehow gotten it's self in our computer and the printer no longer works on it. It's making life very hard.
