“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

There is a thread called Books, but I'm all for starting a new one.

I just finished Virginia Woolf's 'To The Lighthouse.' Now I'm about to start either Cormac Mcarthy's 'Blood Meridian,' 'Moby Dick,' or 'The Heart Of The Matter' by Graham Greene. I guess whichever one I pick up tomorrow will be the one I read.

I don't really like him too much (although as a person I think he's great). But I've only read Fight Club and part of Choke, so I really shouldn't form an opinion.

no shit Mac...swear, I actually have that same book.  Read it about a year ago...it's not too bad.  I haven't read a ton of screenwrittin' books, but I must say, I got the most...or made the most sense out of that one.  You are probably in it, but I joined some lame movie book club and got that as one of my freebie picks.

As I'm not american i knew him from fight club (and thought it was a hype) but then I read diary and lullaby in a role and love them...my next choice will be survivor
