2Pac - Greatest Hits ~ 2Pac

Plato? Socrates? Jesus Christ? They were nothing compared to 2Pac. He personifies the angst of the young black man. So what if promotes criminality? He is a genius. I love 2Pac and listen to his music all day. I don't have a job, but the social pays me enough, plus I manage to top up on Income Support using other means promoted by 2Pac.

... For any up and coming Quidditch star this book is a must; it contains the complete history of this magnificent game from when the witch Gertie Keddle first saw and wrote in her diary about the strange game she saw people playing on Queerditch Marsh way back in the eleventh century, right up until now. It explains all the ingenious anti-Muggle precautions put in place to stop Muggles coming across a game where people are flying around on broomsticks. How the game has spread worldwide, how technical advances in broom technology have improved the players' performance. And there is also a very intriguing chapter on how the Golden Snitch arrived in the game....
Twenty-five Chapters by Charles M. Duke
Twenty-five Chapters by Charles M. Duke
'Twenty-Five Chapters' captures the zietgiest of fin de siecle London. An urban novel in every sense of the word, it manages to get under the skin of characters as the chart their way through the trials and tribulations of existence in the capital of cool. Some of the same ground is covered in 'The Buddha of Suburbia' but while Kureishi writes about life in happenin' London from the comfort of a cushy suburban existence, Duke has lived the life of his characters first hand - and it shows. Sharp, witty, surreal and highly recommended.
