free range eggs make a tastier omelette

Wanted to Rip my John Coltrane CDs this weekend but haven’t taken the time to perform the careful song selection required based on what I want on my mp3 player. Instead I Ripped Beck, Tone Loc, The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers and my favorites from the boxed set ‘Citizen Steely Dan’. Among the (used) CDs I picked up yesterday while shopping were the last three I needed to complete the nine volume Quintessential Billie Holiday series. Also some “trip-hop” in the form of Massive Attack(Mezzanine) and Portishead(Dummy) along with a CD containing the first two albums by The Holy Modal Rounders.

Reading the Albert Camus short story collection ‘Exile and the Kingdom’ today, I came across this quote – “History shows that the less people read, the more books they buy.”

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
