Yep, finals are over and I am hung over mentally. I typed about 50 pages worth of paper last week, which sucked, and presented a paper on the most difficult subject I’ve ever encountered. So now, I get to hang out and read, which does not suck. Now, I know you may be thinking that I am going to bring out a list of books that put me in some pseudo-intellectual, self-serving light, but fuck it. I am going to read World War Z.

This book absolutely rules, I’ll tell you that right now. The author is Mel Brook’s son, and he is probably sick of hearing that. Whatever, this book kicks ass, and follows George Romero’s classic example of (not so) subtly implanting political/social themes in some freakin’ sweet horror prose.

In other news, I picked up one of the greatest pieces of music I’ve heard in a long, long time- Jar of Flies  by Alice in Chains. I am a big grunge fan, and this is the best acoustic stuff out there. It is a little short with only seven songs, but the songs are long and kick major ass. One song that stood out in particular was Don’t Follow. You can get a  preview of the song over at Amazon, so check it out (click on the picture):Buy that song off iTunes, rip it, steal some money from your grandma, whatever- get this album. Infinity stars.
