Hey Dufus! Another funny old week, it seems. But good news: you're not American. Roth

Things aren't much better in Canada, this week, Indigo. Can't seem to trust politicians on any level - municipal, provincial or federal.

I LOLed, literally, at the first Michele Bachmann one. Off to have my moment of silence...after I listen to more Johnny Cash (listening to American Recordings right now).

I take it she was Sarah Palin's political sister? As in a wacko? I have all the American Recordings volumes. Great collection. Must say I never heard of the Cash album you were talking about on Facebook. I'm always learning something new from you.

We had it on 33 1/3 (remember that? :) when I was a kid. Some truly awful stuff my parents had too in their collection, but this was one of the gems, along with Hank Williams and Frank Sinatra.

Remember that? I've still got a lot of LPs in the basement but I'm too lazy to listen to them. You have to get up every 15 minutes to flip them over. When I listen to CDs I plop five in the changer and the music lasts half a day.

On one level yet sad on another.

I think Duffy and Ford are like the gruesome twosome. They should both resign.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
