twilight is proving very gushy. if the movie hadn't been so good i don't know if i could keep troding through all the mush."edward is so god like, beautiful and perfect, etc"
Im reading 2 hardcovers atm. Andrew Loomis - 3 dimensional drawing (revised successful drawing) and figure drawing for all its worth.
I tried reading the free pdfs, but I couldnt concentrate with all the scrolling up and down. So i went to amazon.com and was able to grab both Loomis books used. One of them is in mint condition the other is decent.
There is something truely awesome about holding a Loomis book in your hand. They were expensive but im glad to have them.
also bought a ton of Bridgeman books I havent even looked at yet.

Labyrinth of Solitude. It's a good book, all in all. And I've been wanting to read that for a while.

If you enjoy "Starship Troopers" you might like Joe Haldemans "Forever War", kinda similar book, speculative military sci fi but written from the 'Nam protester "War = fail" hippy point of view.
If you like both then John Scalzis "Old Mans War" is ace. It's Heinlein or Haldeman with a sense of humour.

I'm reading a fantasy short story collection called The Solaris Book of New Fantasy or something like that.

Felt like I was watching another episode of supernatural...

I am thinking about picking up my unfinished Ian Irvine's - Tetrarch: The Well of Echoes.
I am currently reading the hidden meaning allegorical treasure troves that are
