Read the book that influenced Sigmund Freud and Nietzsche ("Dostoyevski is the ONLY psychologist from whom I have anything to learn"); was found on Tolstoy's nightstand-- well worn-- when HE died. And, in a book called the "Book of Lists", in the categories "Greatest Books" and "Greatest Writers", Dostoyevski was picked FIRST in both lists-- by two different authors!
And, unlike so many "great" authors, Dostoyevski can be HILARIOUS at times.
I won't bore the reader with an explication of the plot, but I might advise him/her to warm up to the book by reading "Notes from Underground," which explicates the themes that are explored in "Brothers." (btw... I've read this book in its entirety three times (first time in 1978), and read sections of it periodically; and I still find sections that strike me a completely new each time.

where she feature such notables as Linus Maurer (inspiration for the character "Linus" in the late Charles Schultz's widely-celebrated Peanuts cartoon. And she is currently showing an original work by Stanley Mouse, who all you 60's era afficianados will know from numerous psychedelic posters and album covers.

Anyway, as I was walking home last night, I was walking through *ahem* Petaluma's Historical Theatre District-- which pretty much consists of a movie theatre and-- um... actually, that's really IT...
They DO, however, have a rather nice art deco design for the otherwise pedestrian cinimaplex downtown. So as I was walking by I decided to take a couple of photgraphs (which appear on my photos page), one of which is the new splash page for my main site, which is kind of amusing for about two minutes, but I simply MUST come up with a more professional looking design if I'm ever going to get any paying gigs out of it.
I spent WAAAYYY more time today than I ever should have spent on it, trying to cobble together a natural-looking (FAILED) marquee for the middle of the photo leading into my site, including what was supposed to be a neon sign (failing again) reading "glassangel".
Anyway, I have other work to do, so I guess it's "Back to Work"...
