    Very dry, but it can also be warm and forgiving. These were the ones that really hurt. So then you gotta cool it off a notch. Rob owns his own record store called Championship Vinyl. Barry: Okay, whatever. John Cusack.

    Barry: Yea we have it. Barry: Oh God. Laura still phones him regularly and to make matters worse she is living with his old neighbor Ian Ray, a man he hates. RIP, I guess.

    That could have been her, or it could have been someone else. Are all relationships, all rejections, merely repetitions of earlier ones? Fourth night: chucked. When Rob learns that Laura's father has passed away, he is deeply affected by this because the two men always got along well, and Laura's father actually liked Rob a great deal. People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. That's character.

High Fidelity book

The book opens with Rob's top five break ups. Barry: Top 5 songs about death. In addition, some people are more affected by books than by movies, while other people are more affected by movies than by books. Despite this apparent ambiguity in direction, the novel of course includes more detail—both in quantity and in variety.

I made that tape special for today. Nobody — not Alison, or Kevin, or me, or the sexually uninitiated retards hanging off the end of the swingboat said anything at all.

At least, I think she did High Fidelity. To conclude, there will always be disparity in terms of events and characters between a novel and its corresponding film.

But the series, out on Friday, is a surprisingly thoughtful adaptation — one that takes race and especially gender into consideration. In the end, she felt like she was dragging him around. Girls, on the other hand, quite clearly had breasts, and, to accompany them, a new way of walking: arms folded over the chest, a posture which simultaneously disguised and drew attention to what had just happened.

Kinda lost it all, you know.

Slipped discs

The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most; and I don't know whether pop music has caused this unhappiness, but I do know that they've been listening to the sad songs longer than they've been living the unhappy lives.

And she's got one of the best all time laughs in the history of all time laughs, she laughs with her entire body. By tiny, tiny increments. Fourth night: chucked. Then I lost it. Rob does not understand women, but has dated a lot of them, most of whom he has cheated on, prompting a nasty break-up and a great deal of bitterness.

I always had one foot out the door, and that prevented me from doing a lot of things, like thinking about my future and Leader of the Pack. But there are some differences. If you could somehow prove that these childish entertainments had the potential to dash your brains out, then playing on them became OK somehow.

And if you have any taste in literature whatsoever, the book will go straight in at the top of your all-time top five. He also learns that Laura has begun a relationship with a much older man, who comes to the store to politely ask him to stop calling Laura, whom he has been trying to reach out to because he misses her, and also because he wants to tell her about his personal epiphany that has inspired him to look inward and live a more purposeful life.

She is not present to listen, and she will not read what he has written, so the actual readers are left in a kind of limbo between the two components of this pair.
