Is it possible to make a literature forum for book review, poetry, creative writings and such? I'm sure it would be interesting for at least a number of members of this board.

You should check Guru Zim's post here in the thread about adding a "Comics Forum" about this subject, Click Here (The W):

...as obviously indicated by you, having three posts in EVERY THREAD ON THIS BOARD

I'm now inclined to go along with Aaron and set up this forum because what The W REALLY needs are more opportunities for the world to be exposed to even more Grimis posts consisting of "Frankly, I've never understood the appeal of (wildly popular book/author/genre)"

(Chuckle)I can't help my penchance for iconoclasm...

Actually, if it trends toward creative writing/poetry/modern fiction, I really won't have anything to say. The only fiction book I have read that was written in this millennium was "The DaVinci Code", which was awesome. In fact, the last three books I read most recently were:

- Lord of the Flies
- Farenheit 451
- Animal Farm

I reserve the right to nuke this forum due to lack of activity.

While I like the idea, for obvious reasons, I fear a forum centering around print media will somehow revert to a lists forum.

Let's hope I'm... err, WE'RE better then that.

Grimis, have you tried reading any of Neil Gaiman's work? Try AMERICAN GODS or NEVERWHERE.

Guru, have you ever tried reading through a comics message board? I was on Comicbookresources for about three weeks before I couldn't stand those people anymore. Imagine having a few dozen Grimis', Pool-Boys', and Cerebus' all on one message board. It's not pretty OR entertaining and we need SOMEWHERE to get away from them.

Thanks.

I prefer to discuss comics on non-comics message boards (like the DVDVR) or at places that are heavily moderated (like the Oni board). The "popular" boards are an invitation to disaster.

That said, I like having this be a generic print forum. It's probably also a place for the Tony Kornheiser love the board spreads around all the time.

So, assumning his egregious sexual harrasment* doesn't cost him his job, when is he quitting the Post, anyway?

He's got a column today, so probably not this week. :>

I assume there's no reason for him to quit. I mean, he alway sees himself as a newspaper guy first, so I doubt he would completely give it up, even if the radio and tv make him more money.

And it's not really taxing to write 1 column a week, especially one that's humor-based. (like today's column, about the Skins asking the NFL for a 12th player on offense.)

Where might one find these articles? The Washington Post?

Also, There's a collection (well, the one that's still in print) of Tony's Style columns (which were the basis for Listen UP) called I'm Back for more Cash.

Pumping Irony

(Guru may yell at me for subverting, but I did give them valuable nickels with my [adult swim] purchaes a couple weeks ago.)

There's also a hard-to-find non-fiction book called "The Baby Chase," about Tony and "a woman he is related to by marriage" trying to adopt a baby.

If you search hard enough, you can find one on-line.

Anyone read the new Stephen King novel yet? I just finished it a day or two ago and it was pretty decent.
