now i wish i had with this show starting.
not many other people did.
i started it but it's kinda odd..
i don't really understand the actual concept of jPod..the whole underground thing and why people were picked to be there?
do you think i need to read the book first? or will the show eventually make sense?
underground thing? they work in a software company?
i wish i was there now, that would be SO pretty :(
you'll learn one day!
i enjoyed the book - although not as much as microserfs. watched the first two of the tv show though, and it sucked. doh.
but thoght it was one of the worst books ive ever read
i haven't read anything by douglas coupland (*booohisssss*)
i really should. i know this.
nation of Canuckia.
But DC is on a downward slide - The Gum Thief was appalling
he's pretty much always had his ups and downs - shampoo planet right after generation x, miss wyoming after girlfriend in a coma, eleanor rigby after hey nostradamus!. i think it's just because he writes so much, there's bound to be some stuff in there that isn't as good.
he's the ryan adams of literature :D
just reading that again now.
and pretty much what guntrip said, I really liked it, but many people I know who have read it hated it. I'm a bit gay for Coupland though.
