    I’m in the middle of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. It is sad and depressing, chronicalling one atrocity after another perpetuated on the Native Americans as the US government systematically exterminated them in the 1800s.

    Honestly, I’m not sure if I can finish it, it is just so depressing and upsetting.

    If I stare at my phone in my car while it's playing the audiobook, it's as dangerous as reading, so I think it counts.

    Currently reading "On Having No Head", an incredible read so far... quite a short book but really gets to the point of alot of Zen teachings. Very direct pointers...

    Has knocked me out a few times already...![​IMG]

    Nice! You ever get into AFI, like their early punk/hardcore stuff? (Probably my favourite band...)

    tbh I never really did, though I know their lead singer is a massive Misfits/Samhain/Danzig fan so that's cool
