    I figured that I would start a thread so everyone can post what they are reading at the moment. I guess we'll see how it works out.

    Right now I'm working on Sherlock Holmes - The Sign of Four.

    "Keys to Drawing" by Bert Dodson.

    Used to draw and sketch a lot and checked this out from the library, thinking it might be time to try it again.

    History of the Big Bonanza ,by Dan DeQuille

    I'm in between reads. I am trying to decide what to read. There has been a plethora of outstanding literature mentioned lately. I'm in a serious quandary.
    Any suggestions?

    May I suggest Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2, with Falstaff, Shakespeare's greatest character (a loveable wretch of a fallen knight), and some great speech-ifying.

    Or if you're in a bloody mood, Titus Andronicus, more gruesome than any Freddie Krueger (sp?) or "chainsaw massacre" film ever made. Well, it grossed me out anyway.

    Or, if you're up for something like science fiction, of a sort, try his farewell to the stage: The Tempest. (An allegorial commentary on exploration and colonization.)

    It's interesting that while Shakespeare wrote in the late 1500's - early 1600's, I can't recall any mention of tobacco use.

    Okay fur I'll bit. What is hide shooting?

    Where do you fish? I to excel at being a bad fisherman. I have a boat on a skip about 10 minutes from my house and fish often. Catch?????....not so much.

    Catch a buzz though which is really why I'm there in the first place.

    Hey Fur,

    Since when does catching have anything to do with fishing?
    Fishing involves just 3 things; straw hat, cane pole; and a pipe.

    Jonesing, well, "shooting from a hide" I should have said. The growing season has just perked up over here and the woodpigeon are starting to hammer the crops again, so a friend and I go set up a hide and some decoys and crack a few off (or at least try). I find shooting from sitting to standing, in a confined space, often in hawthorn, ain't all that easy!!

    And yeah I know catching isn't that important - but the winter cod fishing is so damn cold, a catch would just help liven things up!! At the minute, fishing here involves numerous layers, woolly hats, gloves, 3 pairs of socks, a numb face and my mate complaining too much!!! I can't wait for the smoothhounds to arrive in the summer though...

    Today, a nature guide to the birds of Britain accompanied my Calabash and some Larsen Red Virginia (Blend #30).

    Ahhh

    Gotcha.

    Referred to over here in the colonies as a "blind" rather than hide.

    No wood pigeons over here. A smaller cousin the Dove is a common game bird around here though. Yes that's correct we apparently like to go out and blast the shit out of the bird of peace.

    For me it's just fresh water lake fishing. Bass and catfish mostly. I do think it's worthy of pointing out that I am the king of catching 4-5 inch sunfish. I can catch the hell out of them and if they ever start a professional sunfishing tour I'm sure to become a star.

    Stay warm and be careful...You'll put your eye out.

    ""What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
    "All of them at once," said Bilbo. "And a very fine morning for a pipe of tobacco out of doors, into bargain. I you have a pipe about you, sit down and have a fill of mine! There's no hurry we have all day before us!" Then bilbo sat down on a seat by his door, crossed his legs, and blew out a beautiful grey ring of smoke that sailed up into the air without breaking and floated away over The Hill."

Frodo paddled away from the shore, and the River bore them swiftly away, down the western arm, and past the frowning cliffs to Tol Brandir.... they set off, seeking a path that would bring them over the grey hills of the Emyn Muil, and down into the Land of Shadow."

    I knew he was quite a character.
    Most of that contained in the article was known to me.
    I think that the comment about the names on their headstone missed the point.
    I think they thought of each other in those terms because Luthien gave up her immortal life for Beren, which can be a directly correlated to her conversion to Catholicism.
    At that time for a Catholic to marry outside the faith was unheard of, and since he couldn't convert to Protestantism she had to convert. Meaning that she had to leave her world to live in his.

    I checked out the first two books from Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" series today and also "Freakonomics".

    I'm undecided on which to read first. I've waited about 3 months for Freakonomics to be available and have wanted to start getting into the Discworld series for a while. I might have to make a sandwich with Freakonomics in the middle.

    Love the Diskworld books!

    It came in handy that the library has internet access. I was sort of overwhelmed by the 30 some-odd books on the shelf and showing up unprepared. Though I managed to figure out what the first book was on my own, doing a search for Discworld +"reading order", was a big help.

    I read this a few years ago and now I see a big psoter for it in the airport bookstores.

    Did they update it?

    Sometime last year a sequel came out called "Superfreakonomics".

    Here is a string that I thought our new members might enjoy.
    It's been a month since anyone has posted to it.
    I'm just wondering: did we all suddenly go illiterate?

    Not me!

    This month, 3 at once:
    Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess: about the mind game... you have to read between the lines.
    Winning Chess How to see three moves in advance: Irving Chernev and Fred Reinfeld... strictly tactics. Awsome! (To my future oponents... Stand by to stand by!
    Winning Chess Openings: Bill Robertie.... Just what the title implies.

    No fiction this month just fact.

    Biocentrism, by Robert Lanza, MD. Asserts that no phenomenon is a real phenomenon until it is cognated by a conscious entity. This is kinda like the old question: "If a tree falls in the forest..."; but it makes the weirdness of quantum phenomena more sensible (no pun intended.)

    I can follow that reasoning Cortez.
    The falling tree question was address in my first Music Theory Class.
    It takes a biological mechanism to complete the trinity of necessary conditions and elements for sound to occur. Permit me to continue:
    1) A tree falls in the forest: The impact with the ground and other surrounding objects and assuming an atmosphere is present will cause vibrations within the tree and the surrounding objects and the assumed atmosphere.
    2) Conductor of vibrations: The surrounding objects and the assumed atmosphere conduct the sympathetic vibrations caused by the falling tree. (at this point there is no sound)
    3) The ear: Unless a biomechanical atmospheric vibration sensing devise is functioning and the vibrations detected by said device are changed by the "ear" into an interptable form (e.g. bio-electrical impulses) and are perceived and interpreted by the brain of a conscious living organism as sound. Sound cannot occur.

    So,

    no phenomenon is a real phenomenon until it is cognated by a conscious entity.

    Yes, I think you've constructed the system pretty clearly. Lanza is coming at the issue from the point of view that the consciousness (I hesitate to say "brain") is the ultimate virtual reality machine. E.g. One photon looks like another -- there is no such thing as a red photon. So, if an apple looks red because the retina and visual cortex use electromagnetic vibrations to create that impression, then what color is the apple when no conscious entity is looking at it?

    Lanza goes on to examine many enigmatic results from experiments in quantum research by employing this very Zen-like perspective; even asserting that space and time are products of the conscious, cognating virtual reality machines within our crania.

    Finishing up Angels and Demon by Dan Brown and just got in and about to start Confessions of a Pipeman by Gary B. Schrier. I also got in The Gourmet Guide to Cigars by Paul Garmirian, but I think it will be a couple of months before I get to it. Work is about to get real crazy so reading is kinda getting put on the back burner or before bed for now.

    @ Igloo
    Yup. I see you've been reading-up on physics. (Quantum wave probabilities and all that...)
    It seems that you've "wrapped your head around" the Copenhagen interpretation a little easier than me.

    The only Copenhagen I wrap my head around(or lip) is the one I can spit out lol. I pretty much hated physics in collage.

    Hey Cortez,

    Didn't Plato say something like that.
    I enjoyed Philosphy, but nearly was thrown out of the class when I answered the following question.

    What did Plato think the brain was for? I answered that the Greeks thought the brain was used to cool the blood.
    The Prof went ballistic.
    I also had a tendency to argue semantics with him. It irritated the hell out of him.
    That was one fun class. Especially when he knew I was right.

    I might have to read that.
    Do you think it's in the Library?

    Math and Physics hurt my brain. Right now I am reading The Bobby Jones Autobiography. Have also been reading the Bible quite a bit. Very interesting book. I must say.
