The confrontation between Mr. Dark and Charles Halloway in the library...
Amazing - I'm reading that very chapter for the first time right now! No spoilers please!

That chapter was the first time a book made me literally shudder - goosebumps running up the spine and having to pause for a few ticks to gather myself.

Ghost Story by Peter Straub was another one.

The Everly Brothers: Songs of Innocence and Experience (Arena documentary)

This is superb, like most of the Arena documentaries. Lots of Everlys in Drakesboro, Kentucky.

The few I've seen (Burroughs and Genet esp) were really great. The one with Genet is unlike any other documentary: it's mostly a long interview and he's terminally ill, clearly insane and more ornery than ever... at some point he turns the tables on the interviewer and starts inciting the camera crew to revolt. The good ****

Starting today my first rewatch of the OZ tv series.

It was the first show HBO produced, so it's interesting to see where the network went since then.

I remember it as gut-wrenching, horrible, brutal and so captivating you can't take your eyes off screen. There wasn't a single bad or uninteresting character. And it all just felt super real and natural (at least until some "aging pill" disaster of a plot in one of the later seasons).

I was 17 when I watched it for the first time, so I suppose I'll experience the show very differently now.




Oh, yeah, and there was always this thing they did in the opening sequence, that one of the main characters would go on some random pseudo-philosophical rants or something, and though at first I thought it was cool and interesting, it got to seem pointless and kinda dumb pretty fast.

Apart from this and the pill plot line, I remember this as one of the best shows I've seen.

Wish me luck, I guess
