come on people. what about the classics? well for roadreading you can read basically all kerouac--desolation angels and dharma bums are my favorites. henry miller--colossus of maroussui (sp.) or air conditioned nightmare or any of the rosy crucifixion or the tropics (cancer/capricorn) bukowski poems/novels always put things in perspective. for stuffier but still brutal and olympian prose--check out thomas wolfe or james joyce. hesse and camus are both good authors to accompany loneliness. burroughs is good if yer feeling bizarre--i recommend queer or junky. of course there is the ever-epic change-your-life-novel: electric kool aid acid test by tom wolfe. literary candy can come in the form of tom robbins--i.e. another roadside attraction, skinny legs and all, jitterbug perfune--but i outgrew him sometime ago. anyway--the best way to find good books/authors is to find one and discover its connections. like: i found hesse through kerouacs musings. anyway.

happy reading.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
