Rocket To Russia – The Ramones

There’s just something about the combo of Cretin Hop->Rockaway Beach. It really got me going this morning and will again this afternoon as I pull out of the parking lot from work…heading home for two weeks on the coast of Maine. Ya, baby!

I was very impressed with fellow blogcritic The Theory‘s vacation reading list. I wish mine was so ambitious. I’d love to say that I’m going to be taking on Ulysses, Gravity’s Rainbow, and maybe even Anna Karenina…but that of course would be a pretentious loada crap (not the books, just the idea that I’m actually gonna read that stuff).

So here’s what I’ve got in my pile so far:

I’ll probably also bring along Lester Bangs’ Psychotic Reactions And Carburetor Dung because he was my rock critic hero when I was a kid.

Now if it’ll just stop raining on the east coast….

  • thanks eric. i was wondering what people thought of it. everyone’s got a few musical rituals…this one’s mine.

    by the way, i just realized that i have read Gravity’s Rainbow….and never again will i force my self to finish a book. that was two weeks of my life that i can never get back.

    now, off to vacationland!
