Just joined the cult
This week I signed up to the writers workshop after a short period of lurking here. My principle motivation is to improve my writing and from browsing through archived reviews it looks like there is a lot of constructive criticism and debate. I'm keen to start reviewing and I hope any feedback I give is valuable to the writers because in many respects I feel underqualified to criticise.
The current pile of books at my bedside (which never seems to get any smaller) includes Houellebecq, Murakami, Kundera and Chuck himself. Besides reading and writing I enjoy listnening to Jazz and electronica, drinking green tea and watching films.
I wanted to somehow give myself a human face, which is not always easy on the net. I noticed a lot of threads about Karaoke, so I have recorded my version of "Suspicious Minds". You might want to cut out the last minute because i forgot to sing the repeated coda.
Exactly what kind of human face that rendition might give me is debatable, but it must be better than an anonymous blank (.... or a Trout Mask).
Anyhow, I look forward to getting to know you all.
