Let's see if we can make this work again...

I've just started Marc Maron's 2001 autobiography The Jerusalem Syndrome. One must wonder why an updated edition, to include the years up to the debut of his "WTF" podcast, hasn't come out already. Or is he saving that for the next book?

Also, at long last, I've begun a serious effort at reading through The Complete National Lampoon DVD-ROM. Right now I'm in the middle of the January 1980 issue, which was selected for no particular reason. Before that, I read the all-O.C and Stiggs issue (April 1982?), which was adapted for the surprisingly-not-awful 1984 Robert Altman film.

I started Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster I only find some parts funny, i'm actually enjoying when the joke is on her.

I have had to put it down a few times though.

I read Go the F to Sleep now that was hilarious.

Well... just got back from Devon and I'm loaded down with books! I have Bill Bryson's At Home to read, a Tom Holt book (sorry can't remember the title), a Peter Ustinov bio, a Peter Cook book... so may be a bit busy to blog, share or even write!

I made a healthy charge into the beginning of Penn Jillette's new memoir/humor collection, God, No!, and I must say it's really fantastic.

I just finished Christopher Buckley's Boomsday, and it was quite enjoyable. The only thing wrong with it is that it was supposed to be a parody, but I think that stuff actually happens. In that sense, I can see it being not too funny for some...

Moving on to Dead Funny: Humor in Hitler's Germany. It's written by Werner Herzog's son. I hope I don't expect too much.
