Final way to enter the giveaway

Okay, I decided that the third way to enter this giveaway is going to be for everyone.

You don't have to follow, you don't have to do anything other than answer this question:

Who is your favorite author (now, or of all time) and why?

Comment on this post, and winners will be chosen Thursday.

just in case you wanted a bit of summer, it's mighty dreary here...

Also, I was just informed that my guest post is up over at Awkward Sex and the City. If you feel like reading something less than ladylike head on over. But, I am warning you, it's a bit crass.

Also, I posted for Sex and the Shitty a while back but wasn't sure if you'd want to read that... but go ahead. I am warning you right now it's also sort of gross. I don't want to write about sex on my own blog (too much) because my parents do have the means of reading it. And one of my favorite teachers from when I still sang a lot.

I also haven't really felt like writing for a while and I feel badly about it. You deserve to read something I've written, even if it's not posted here.


  1. Just had to say, lovely flower picture. Makes the drab and dreary weather look that much more wonderful.

  2. Robert Frost, (wait damnit I can't win...sigh) Its still Robert Frost though.

  3. Favorite author = Chuck Klosterman! He provides such amazing commentary on pop culture.

  4. fuck yeah to chuck klosterman! the man is a genius

  5. I like Betrand Russell because he has the ability to express his thoughts (especially his critique of religion) in a clear, precise, yet humorous way. He has the capacity to sound super smart while being sarcatic in a fresh way that resonates still. Here is a sample:

    "That is the idea -- that we should all be wicked if we did not hold to the Christian religion. It seems to me that the people who have held to it have been for the most part extremely wicked. You find this curious fact, that the more intense has been the religion of any period and the more profound has been the dogmatic belief, the greater has been the cruelty and the worse has been the state of affairs. In the so-called ages of faith, when men really did believe the Christian religion in all its completeness, there was the Inquisition, with all its tortures; there were millions of unfortunate women burned as witches; and there was every kind of cruelty practiced upon all sorts of people in the name of religion."

  6. My favorite author.... is a lot like a music. I don't have any particular favorite artists. I just like certain songs. Same with reading, I just like certain books. But I guess I'll go with JK Rowling because Harry Potter was awesome.

  7. Hemingway always seems like a cliche answer, but Jesus, I love that man.
