The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter". His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures.

But worth another listen in hind sight with a calmer head. Too brief lol. Fifteen words at least. It's not a ruse. You go we go. Or did we already make it. I found Deborah's song on time and in time. Marking logical progression. Make a smarter box. Which I think u already did. I love the world it is grand. No it's not popular opinion. That's why you are in charge. I'm just cattle? I think therefore no I'm not. Where do we go from here? This is not where we intended to be? -Sir Tim Rice sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. What do we do with my country? Guess in the end that is for us to decide.

Seven years in the making and meticulously researched - Gabler is the first writer to be given complete access to the Disney archives - this is the full story of a man whose work left an ineradicable brand on our culture but whose life has largely been enshrouded in myth.

The man Walt Disney must have been something else.
At the end of the day this book does not let you Know him. One thing is for certain. One does not know what one does not know.

Thank you for the Life Lessons and Legacy

One dreamer to another sincerely,

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

In this moment in time
Forgive me for my rhyme
A single note rings true

The day that lives in infamy grandiose
That day effected you

The sins of the father
A journey through the past

That day something did change
The questions that we ask

Ask not what ultimate momentous We
But ask the worst instead

Ask the worst and hope the best
When did we stray so far



The Audacity of pessimism was the norm? Once upon a time in America.




I thoroughly enjoyed this Novel this Performance and this Stitch in Time.

Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he'll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote...and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

Riveting, terrifying, repulsive and compelling. With the taunting limericks pulling you down the rabbit hole until you pass them up in eagerness. Then they start chasing. An excellently nuanced performance.
