So, a while ago I picked up a book by the author of Generation Kill. I forget his name. And amazon tells me it's Evan Wright. Additionally, if i want to buy the DVD's they are on sale now (20 something dollars instead of 60. Hmmm).
Anyways, I didn't pick up Generation Kill (although I will next time!) but rather Hella Nation
and have been slowly working my way through the different pieces.
I have decided that this book is my new default for ANY ideas for AU fic. I just read an entire essay on underground skateboard culture and how it works and how sponsorship works and everything and I'm like: "ohhh, Gee could do that! And Frank!" and my mind, it goes to sick sick places.
Seriously, the ENTIRE BOOK is about different groups of outcasts and what they do and I'm like: "Eeeeee! So wonderful!" and thought I'd pass it on. Evan Wright has this ability to integrate seamlessly with a group and really see what they are like on the inside. I'd make comments about anthropology and how this entire book reminds me of extended field studies, but that would make it sound like I actually liked anthropology, and after my Intro course more then 5 years ago now? Well...
So pick it up if you have the extra cash and are so inclined. Amazon has it for sale AND I even linked it above.
After I finish this book I"m moving on to another non-fiction book. I tend to only read non-fiction these days, which is weird. Non-fiction or young adult. Please rec me some non-fiction books! Otherwise i'm gonna have to get started on Guns, Germs, and Steel
That is all. Go back to your regularly scheduled Saturday's and think of me at work, behind a desk, for the next 8 hours. *sigh*
