You find yourself in a book store. It's very large. There are more books than you've ever seen in your life. Mystery, Sci-Fi, Horror, Non-fiction and the classics, all here at your finger tips. The whole room has that distinct smell of paper and bound book. There are multiple directions you can travel. To the NORTH lies NON-FICTION, to the EAST is a COFFEE SHOP, WEST holds the MYSTERY section and to the SOUTH is the entrance to the store. Where will you go?
Welcome to more of the odd and insane. When you love reading as much as I do, you come across many a book in your search to quench the thirst of the mind. So, this week we talk about a few of the most offbeat books that I've ever seen. Now, after reviewing my choices, I've come to realize that all, except for our first entry, are slightly NSFW, with some of the taboo topics they cover. However all images included in this article are safe for work. So, please, show your superiors as much as you'd like, I'm sure it'll help you get that raise.... pun not intended, but quite appropriate.
If you do alittle more digging, like clicking the links to the Amazon pages, then you may find some more interesting pictures. But enough stalling, onward to some books that will certainly liven up your coffee table...
Mullets: Hairstyle of the Gods
by Mark Larson and Barney Hoskyns
Honestly, this book speaks naught but the truth. No other hairstyle has been rocked by the likes of the NASCAR fan, hockey players, Roman rebels, all the way up to David Bowie. It's motto of "Business in the front, party in the back" has been around for centuries and these 2 intrepid writers have set out to educate the world on all that is mullet. I hope they follow up this smash hit with "The Flock of Seagulls: I don't care if it was the 80's, What the hell were we thinking?"
Nick is a business owner who answered our call for guest writers and has submitted this little gem on the horrors of high school reading assignments. Enjoy
Do you enjoy reading? I used to enjoy reading. Dr. Seuss and Clifford kept me entertained until my early teens. Then came high school and the literary choices of my English teachers, whose literary choices pissed on and extinguished any passion I had to read and learn. Following are books I was forced to read that pretty much sucked.
So it’s 2011, lots of people have made new years resolutions. A lot of these resolutions are simple lifestyle changes. Some may be more intricate and dramatic.
Join the gym, lose weight, stop smoking, stop drinking, eat healthy, start a hobby, have a baby, get married, adopt a pet, go green, travel the world, run a marathon, eat a 2 foot burrito (OK, that last one is one of mine).
Some people aim low… like my annual resolution for the last 4 years has remained the same.
Keep breathing oxygen.
So far, so good.
But all this goal-setting and ideas of grandeur have me thinking of a more unique topic.
There are things that people talk about doing that I have never ever tried... but I assume that I can do them.
So I’d like to present you with a list… (and lists ROCK), of things I assume that I am fully capable of doing, yet have never tried, nor probably ever will.
May be a way to boost my resume!
