There's a little one page article about Mick in the latest Entertainment Weekly (Tobey McGuire on the cover) about his quest to be America's next great novelist. It's an ok read if you're a Foley fan. It sounds like his next book will be about the same as his current one. I guess he's a niche author .

I went ahead and read that article (on the job, I might add) and it was a good read. I'm definitely looking forward to Mick's next book and it's nice to see that he does have a life after pro wrestling.

One funny thing I came across was the line saying that Mick can go a year without dropping an F-bomb. That's pretty damn impressive.

Mmm... and I'd imagine that when he does let one fly, It's False, he gets his money's worth. Like on Insomniac, when Dave walked out of the bar and just started blurting out as many "fuck"'s as possible, leading up to "Fuck a baby! Fuck a monkey! Fuck a baby monkey!"

OK, that's really wrong.

Anyway, to get back to the original topic, yeah, Scooter Riley sounds pretty similar to Tietam Brown--a coming of age novel with a primary character's name for the title--but I've noticed a pattern to the types of books he writes. He seeme to write books in twos. Two memoirs, two kids books, and now, two "Coming of Age" novels. I get the feeling he wants to make a second run at each genre he tries, just because he's not sure he did it as well as he possibly could the first time around, and now he's worked out the kinks. But three times would just be repetitive.

In other words, I wouldn't be surprised if his next book after "Scooter Riley" is something totally different.

Rather than starting a new thread, I'm just going to say that Tietam Brown was a great great book... until the last 25 minutes... it was very uncomfortable reading and has given me the feeling of the pit in my stomach.

Close the book about 2/3 through, and assume it's a happy ending :)

It is the soldier, who saluted the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag

Oh don't get me wrong, there were a couple of moments that I enjoyed (Rey/Tajiri) ... but as an overall whole, there was no shock value ... you buy PPV's based off of the hype from the shows, not vice versa ...
