Gold Cage/Black Milk

I've been droolin' over these for 2 damn long now.....so I thought I'd share them with you. Ladies N' Boos....the Gold Cage Tight by Black Milk.


"The Gargoyle"/Andrew Davidson

Read this number in about 3 days. Would have been sooner if I didn't have to work, eat, sleep.....ya know, life's usual toils. One of the best books I've read in a long time.

Drug addict is drivin' down a dark road.....next thing you know, about 90% of his body is severely burned. Enter dark-eyed, wild haired woman who claims that she and this tortured survivor were past life lovers in medieval Germany. She was a scribe in a monastery, he was a mercenary. As she continues to spin her tale, the man begins to find it harder and harder to dismiss her as simply insane.

Complete with mini tales of selfless love in ancient Japan and Greenland, and trips through Dante's own Inferno, this book was so damn good, I didnt realize till I was done that the burn victim's name is never even mentioned.

cOPper Verdict: Why are you still reading this, you should be on your way to the book store....


Chic Brown Baggin' Heifer

Ima lil' late with this pic....but it's fuckin' awesome, so I had to....lol.

Speakin' of Snuff!!!....

Ran across this. Trailer itself is not that disturbing, but what the doc's about sure as hell is....to me at least. Lemme kno what you think. P.S: Haven't actually seen this film yet......

Chuck Palahniuk/"Snuff"

A blond-haired, blue-eyed porn star (w/ graying roots) decides to break an industry record by takin' on 600 hombres, one of which may want to kill her. "Ok, ok", I says to myself, "sounds interesting enough."...
 While I was readin' it, kept wonderin' what all the fuss over this Chuck P. dude was. I mean, I chuckled a couple of times, and he was pretty clever, but I jus' didn't get excited. Surprisingly, it started to get more and more interesting, and then the end was pretty twisty.

cOPper Verdict: Look Into It
