"Important things are inevitable cliché."

My friend Scotty (wicked guitar player, smart music choices, all around nice guy) back in Orlando mentioned the book by Chuck Klosterman Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto. I decided to pick it up and have not been able to put it down. It is so delicious and fun at the same time. This quote.....one of my favorites thus far.

"Whenever I meet dynamic, nonretarded Americans, I notice that they all seem to share a single unifying characteristic: the inability to experience the kind of mind-blowing, transcendent romantic relationship they perceive to be a normal part of living. And someone needs to take the fall for this. So instead of blaming no one (which is kind of cowardly) or blaming everyone (which is kind of meaningless), I'm going to blame John Cusack."

I read this book a few years back on 80s pop culture and I remember when the author made a reference that most ladies from the 80s are in love with Mr. Cusack. (I mean, I have a t-shirt that says Mrs. Cusack.....is that weird?) So why not blame it on John. that makes total sense.

Pick up this book. It is really good.

If you go back in my blog a bit you'll see some blogging on Klosterman and Cusak for that matter. I highly recommend Klosterman's "Killing Yourself to Live." Anyway, I have a theory that Zach Braff is the new John Cusak. Think about it... Oh, and nice use of the word "wicked" as an adjective.
