I am such a perpetual student.

I don’t think i’ll ever stop doing research on the Bible and “homosexuality,” especially not with all the interesting footnotes referring me to yet more works, so i have Openly Gay Openly Christian by Rev. Samuel Kader (which i’ve actually read before) and Homosexuality and the Western Christian Tradition by Derrick Sherwin Bailey, Ph.D. (which i’m in the process of reading) as well as The Birth of the Messiah by Raymond E. Brown and The Boy-Man: The Life of Lord Baden-Powell by Tim Jeal (both of which i will probably end up not reading) as well as The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis.

Then there’s Federico García Lorca: A Life by Ian Gibson (which i got out because i’m really into Lorca, but i’m not sure i’ll get around to reading it this summer) and A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar (which i was going to read on the train to and from Philadephia on my trip to visit Laurel).

Also, Ecstasia and Primavera by Francesca Lia Block (so i could send them to traces) and Zine Scene by Francesca Lia Block and Hilary Carlip because some of the replies to this post made me feel weird and i hadn’t read the book in years.

I’m currently reading Plagues of the Mind: The New Epidemic of False Knowledge by Bruce S. Thornton because i checked it back in and thought it looked interesting. Tonight i got out Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News because i checked it back in tonight and it looked interesting. If it hadn’t gotten so insanely busy i would have also gotten How I Accidenally Joined the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (and Found Inner Peace) by Harry Stein and The Death of Outrage by William J. Bennett because their authors are quoted on the back of that book and the books looked interesting.

And this doesn’t even touch my request list.

The saddest part is that i spend way more time on LiveJournal and making mix CDs than i do reading all these interesting books i get out from the library.

    This movie is darker than I was expecting -- which I think is due to my non-familiarity with the franchise. There are also way more dudes than I was…
