Does anyone have a copy of Are You Morbid? the Celtic Frost biography from Tom G. Warrior/Fischer that I could borrow or does anyone know where I can pick up a copy for a reasonable price? Amazon has it for $78. Or is there somewhere I can download it? I'm willing to pay but not $78, that's ridiculous.

Just finished the chapters on the ancient Middle East (pre-Persia/Babylon era). Makes me want to throw on some Nile or Meleches.  Confuseduper:

Had to Google that name. Are you talking about this dude? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Vermeer

EDIT: nevermind, found the book cover on the Wiki page.

Stopped reading Moby Dick at chapter 41. For me, its too hard to read. Chapter 40 is about the crew, and for 4-5 pages, I was just reading words, not even doing phrases because I couldn't understand what everyone was saying. I'm not saying its badly written, it's just not my style. Probably going to read it in 3-4 reads instead of one long read.

I even read on a site that you have to read it has 2 books, not one. The first book is the adventure side of the tale. The second book is when Melville came back one year after it to add literature about whales etc...

That's the guy. He's one of my favorite painters along with Caravaggio.

Moby Dick is very hard to read. The style of English is very verbose. I pushed my way through it because I went to school near New Bedford, the city where Ishmael starts his journey. I found the same issue with Hawthorne's House a Seven Gables, a book I didn't not finish  :lol

The Hour of the Dragon by Robert E. Howard.

Found a bunch of Weird Tales magazines on line that are free to download so if you've wondered what the big deal is head over to the link below and check it out (not sure if this site is available in every country...)
