Tony the Tiger Says...

Reading a book about the exploits of Alexander of Macedon. Defeating King Darius of Persia, establishing contact with India. The guy did so much, starting from such a young age. He was so... I don't know. I just can't find the proper superlative.

On the turntable: Bill Laswell, "Dreams of Freedom"
On the nighttable: "Alexander the Great: The Heroic Ideal" (Thames & Hudson)

I preferred his younger brother Dave the Very Good myself.

Well, it was either that, or live as a cubicle farmer in Aegae. Everyone has to make the choice sometime.

Huzzah! I like that a one-joke post, hastily written in an attempt to fill space for lack of anything better to write, has become a source of amusement for y'all. I thinks it's just great. Ah, shit...
