thanks, man! i walked into a salon i'd never been to before, took the first available stylist, and she TOTALLY ROCKED. i knew the place was supposed to be good, but damn.

also, i'm totally grooving on my barista job. LOVE IT.

You definitely found a great stylist.

Back to Infinite Jest: It's great to find someone I know who read it, and I'm assuming who finished it!

Almost 200 pages into it. It reminds me of Beatnik prose on steroids.

i just love books or movies or whatever that gradually wind seemingly random and unrelated plot threads into one cohesive whole -- and infinite jest is a really incredible example of that.

My ex- boyfriend read it while we were dating. He seemed to really like it and he was quite the book critic.

Another great usericon. I love it!

That's cool that he enjoyed it. It's a wild ride kind of book. Wallace writes in so many different styles and has a myriad of characters, it's fun and crazy and insane.

btw: did you happen to read my previous post? i'm asking for input ... raw input. You could say the harhest thing, and I'd be O.K., because I've already been dragged through hell for posting it in lj's grandrapids community. there was some positive feedback, but mainly negative ... i know it's not the best thing i've ever written or well-edited ... I just burped it out and hit post. now it's clear, i should have written it. Put it aside. Read it the next day. Added the things I forgot to write in the first round then post it.
