Nights forgotten and left for dead

The taxi driver who drove me from the airport to my home didn't ask me about Mal. Time had erased me a little, rubbed me out. I had faded like a photograph buried under soil. I was tanned and older, weathered and experienced and fat. I was what we all become, a by-product of the torture of ourselves. [224]

I just finished reading Bed by David Whitehouse, a novel about two brothers, one of whom, disillusioned by adulthood, goes to bed on his 25th birthday and never leaves. I dug its modest exploration of disappointment and purpose – preoccupations of mine.

Mal hadn't moved for so long that his skin had begun to merge with the linen on the bed. Parts of his back were cloth. All that weight over all those years had welded the two together and made something new. Pressure plus time, just as the earth makes coal. [46]

I am pretty sure that Whitehouse exhausts all possible ways to describe morbid obesity.

In 2013, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will achieve a rare "Jude Law":

Snitch (February 22)
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (March 29)
Pain and Gain (April 26)
The Fast and the Furious 6 (May 24)


No release date yet for Empire State (late June?).

The Rock will also headline WWE's Royal Rumble event in (late) January and WrestleMania XXIX on April 7, and appear on select Monday night Raws.

The Rock is like Little Caesars – Hot-N-Ready.
