Fatuous Literary Braggadocio

Joe has read all of George Eliot’s Middlemarch. He has also read every volume of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, a project that spanned five years and that was nearly as fatiguing as reading all five of James Fenimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales. For some reason, Joe believes that it is necessary to highlight these reading accomplishments.

Frivolous Pop Culture Opinions

Joe is not much for watching movies—Goodfellas and Heat rule, though—but he has spent a lot of his life listening to popular music. He suspects that if he were to be stranded on a desert island, he would—after packing sufficient food, clothing, sunscreen, drinkable water, a stereo, and (it must be noted) a really long extension cord—bring the following albums with him:

  • Faith No More’s Angel Dust
  • Ride’s Nowhere
  • Explosions in the Sky’s The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place
  • Lush’s Split
  • Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet
  • Belly’s King
  • The Cure’s Disintegration
  • Pinkshinyultrablast’s Everything Else Matters
  • New Order’s Substance
  • Love’s Forever Changes
  • Hum’s Downward Is Heavenward
  • Catherine Wheel’s Chrome
  • Boogie Down Productions’ Edutainment
  • The Stone Roses’ The Stone Roses

Faultless Professional Sports Perspective

The Boston Celtics are the best. Period.
