Procrastinate on This! Friday Edition [October 8, 2010]

So I actually don’t have any plans this weekend, which feels weird to say the least … But what are you up to this weekend, I mean other than procrastinating on this:

A note from our own Ryan Dixon - In case it's not on your list: You NEED to read this book. I think you would absolutely FUCKING LOVE IT! It's like four different novels in one, all hilarious and heartbreaking. Imagine if Michael Chabon, Jonathan Lethem and Joe Orton had a baby and that baby wrote the Harry Potter books, but took out (most) of the magic and instead inserted real teenage obsessions with sex, drugs, parallel dimensions, video games and doughnut eating contests while also having a "slightly less than middle-aged" crisis subplot for one of the teachers and you'll have a small idea of what this book is like. -- Click on the cover to purchase at Amazon.

5. Yeah, I’m just go’on have to admit that I’ll watch pretty much anything with quirky English folk in it. And this film TAMARA DREWE is about quirky English writers, plus a chyck with a fresh nose job. So yeah, I’ll be downloading this one on Apple TV pretty soon here.
