RE: The 5 best books you have read.
It's hard to list the 5 best, because each book I own has different uses for different moods. Kind of like music, depending on what mood I'm in that day, I could list anything from Elton John to Megadeth.


But off the top of my head.

1. 1984 - George Orwell and Brave New World - Aldous Huxley

I'm clumping them together because they both fall under the "a tad cliche, but I'd be lying if I didn't include them" list.


2. The Dark Elf Series - R.A. Salvatore

The 20+ book series of Drizzt Do'Urden is entwined into my entire being. I've been reading them repeatedly since I could read and they still captivate me and make me reflect.


3. Brain Droppings and Napalm & Silly Putty - George Carlin

The funniest two books ever written.


4. The Portable Henry Rollins - Henry Rollins

You will stab yourself in the eye socket until you vomit brilliance with the raw emotion of this book.


5. Ohhhh, what to pick, what to pick. I could go with anything by Chuck Palahniuk, the Odd Thomas series, the Goosebumps series (I loved them as a child)... hmmm. I think I'll chose a real classic piece of literature.

Real Ultimate Power - Robert Hamburger

It's a book written by a thirteen year old about ninjas battling pirates, popping "enormous boners," and suicide by frisbee eating. If I may read an excerpt. Ahem.

"Dark smoke fills the scene and pump up music slowly gets louder. The audience sees a ninja and his girlfriend eating at a super expensive restaurant. The girlfriend is so hot that steam is coming out of her mouth or hair. Some old idiot is sitting by the couple. The idiot is giving the girlfriend "the eye" and popping like 16 boners. But the ninja sees the boners and the music really pumps up. The audience knows this guy is dead meat for sure. But out of nowhere, the old idiot pulls off his jacket to show that he is a pirate with lasers and everything. The ninja is like yeah right who cares and then pops the biggest boner ever, bigger than the biggest blackest boner alive. The ninja's boner smashes the entire restaurant. Every single one of the pirate's boners explodes while making a whistling sound. The ninja looks back at his girlfriend. She smiles and they pork.

END

-While writing this script, I head-butt my dog so hard that we both screamed. "
