these things happen, originally uploaded by Hilarywho.

Finished Northline tonight.

After reading it I sat here writing a bit with the soundtrack on. The author Willy Vlautin who grew up in Reno convinced the publisher to include a CD in the back with a soundtrack. Willy is a musician as well and it is a really great idea. Not sure it would work for every book, I don't want to have pick up a Stephen King book and have a soundtrack featuring P.O.D. and whoever else wanted to be on board. But with the prose and music from the same mind it really is a great compliment. I'm listening to it and it makes me feel like I'm back in the story.

My fav moment from the election coverage


News guy says "Nevahda".

Katie Couric corrects him saying, "Nevada" properly.

News guy, "Well I guess the election is over so I don't have to care do I."

Katie Couric, "Yes you do."
