Let me tell you all about the philosophy of the buttcam

I'm gonna use a bunch of overwritten, turgid, purple prose, and not use quotation marks because I'm an ARTIST.

The Road was also fantastic.

I tried reading another about a drunk guy who lived on a boat but it was too accurate a description of homeless people and I couldn't handle it

Yes and also American whiskey, it's called bourbon and they pair well together although I'd recommend some sort of faith based intervention be setup IN ADVANCE because a month of your life will fly by and all your dreams will be about people cutting each others scalps off or being drunk, on a boat

Pan American nightmare
Ten thousand feet fun-fair
Convinced that I don't care
It's safe as houses I swear
I was just sitting musing
The virtues of cruising
When altitude dropping
My ears started popping
One more red nightmare

The Counselor is that sign that all old writers get that they are probably out of ideas and just spinning the wheels. It reads like McCarthy fan-fiction.

See: Garcia Marquez - Memories of my Melancholy Whores, Norman Mailer- Castle in the Forest, etc.

Suttree is like being dragged into the corners of the filthiest urban hell and being left to rot. It was amazing.

Pyncho still alive but it's close. I'd say Suttree or Gravity's rainbow toss up for my favorite books.
