Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at CogDogBlog.com on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.

  1. Hey, so I was going to say Gump too but I chickened out – within a day of almost every single major emotional event of my adult live I end up turning on the tube and freaking Forrest Gump is on, and I always get sucked into watching it.

    And I’m glad to see Cormac McCarthy on your list – if you ever want a truly mind-bending southern gothic read, try his Suttree (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0679736328/ref=pd_sim_b_4/104-5098185-4462348?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=283155) – was my first exposure to him and I promptly started guzzling shine out of a mason jar all the rest of that summer. Cheers, Scott
