May I ask what is the Anti Cosmic element?


To boil it down in layman terms it would be Norse Satanism.


It's the worship of the Thurses and Jotnar within pre Christian Norse religion. The anti cosmic term comes from the Misanthropic Luciferian Order, who created the idea that the true "God" lays outside the essence of the universe and what we live in (the cosmos) was created by a tyrannical demiurge (Óðinn/Yahweh/Zeus/Allah etc) and to truly make the soul free, we must break away from the spiritual chains of the demiurge.

You know, Akuma, that tyrannical demiurge thing goes a long way to explaining whatever the hell it is that I am battling every day at work. 
Up until now I had thought it was just the same damn black goop and animator cruelty that torments Daffy Duck in "Duck Amuck."  Wink

Recently finished "The Man Who Wouldn't Get Up and other stories" by David Lodge. Witty, down to earth and brilliantly observed, the best book of short stories I can remember reading.

Currently reading "Estates: an Intimate History" by Lynsey Hanley. I've had this for a couple of years but only just got round to it. It covers many perspectives of council housing in the UK - historical, social, economic and indeed, the author's personal perspective, having grown up on a large surburban estate in Birmingham. Not everyone's cup of tea I'd guess, but for me, it's fascinating and unputdownable as I have an interest in this stuff, having lived, studied and worked within the field.

I was on holiday a couple of weeks ago and read 'Eat and Run' by Scott Jurek, which I'd bought about 3 yrs previously and not got around to. His achievements are incredible and have inspired me to dust off my running shoes again. It's a compelling read, if a little short and the vegan theme is very interesting too, I like the recipes at the end of each chapter.

Cheers for the heads up on that Maynard, i'll stick it on the list.
I can highly recommend both 'Born To Run' by Chris McDougall & 'Running With The Kenyans' by Adharanand Finn if further inspiration is needed to get the runners back on.
In fact Mr Jurek has somewhat of a staring roll in the former.

On a different note I have just finished 'Life and Death on the New York Dancefloor, 1980-1983' by Tim Lawrence.  An excellent history of  club culture, disco, hip hop and the downtown art/party scene in the aforementioned city at that time.
Lots of great stories from the Paradise Garage, The Loft, Danceteria and how all the different cultures met and influenced one another.

I can vouch for both Born to Run and Running with the Kenyans as being great reads.  Although I do associate Born to Run as being the primary culprit in the ridiculous barefoot running craze.  Running with the Buffaloes and 14 Minutes are also good running related reads.

I just finished 100 Years of Solitude. What a great read.

Ah-ha.  Thank you, Bob, I will add this to my reading list.
 
Recent books I have enjoyed include:
 
 
Victor Lodato's Edgar and Lucy
 
Parag Khanna's Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization  (Sadly, I read this prior to the most recent U.S. presidential election, when there was some hope of its central thesis being considered in policy development.)
