    You’re a Jack White fan, no?
    Ever checked out Under Great White Northern Lights?
    It’s a photo journal, rather than sketchbook or concept art, but it truly is fantastic.
    Photos by Autumn De Wilde, and it captures their tour of every province and territory in Canada, for support of Icky Thump.
    If you like that sort of thing, and I think you do, it’s a definite must.

    I follow him on FB.
    He seems much more interested in startups for card games and go fund me types of things than what he is in finishing what could easily be one of the top ten fantasy series of all time.

    Fucker.

    I'm not convinced he's messed up, but I do find some of the chapters to be repetitive and circuitous. It's not supposed to be an easy self-help read, but I find myself having to read entire paragraphs over, sometimes more than once. I will soldier on though, there is some useful stuff in there about his experience in clinical practice. Some really good stuff about the nature of personal responsibility that would apply to some of the threads recently posted here.

    Currently on book 10 of 14 in the Wheel of Time series. I think I'll take a break after this one and read Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules For Life. I also got the new George Martin book Fire and Blood

    Been on a werewolf kick lately. Presently reading book three of the "High Moor" series by Graeme Reynolds. Great books if you're into werewolves.
