"Naturally, there is. And truth to tell I give the Jersey Shore type a Hell of a lot more credit than the forever-in-blue-jeans-and-favorite-team-jersey slob. Jersey Shore's trying."

"Grooming and maintaining yourself is manly, I think. Preening is unmanly. Where's the line? Of all people Sylvester Stallone described it well when he was on the Imus show, once. He described a moment when he was flexing in the mirror, making…"

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
""Dracula" always pleases anew, as does "Frankenstein." Both dense, compelling horror reads. "Frankenstein" is the more literary tale, while "Dracula" is just a pleasure."

"Interestingly, the movie "Cannery Row" was mostly vignettes from "Sweet Thursday." It was a great treatment of Steinbeck. "

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"Hear, Hear. Loved "Cannery Row," loved "Sweet Thursday" which I took as a sequel. Steinbeck's love for his friend Ed Ricketts (who became "Doc") is really touching. Steinbeck's writing is so rich it's…"

"Kipling's always worth a reread. I should have remembered it earlier - "Man who Would Be King" is one I pick up every five years and appreciate anew."

"I got out of the habit of studying lines, actively. Now I record the read-through and then listen to it while walking the dog, working out, in the car, etc. Sitting down to memorize is just agony. Try it! After all - you can probably recite your…"

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"I read this in high school and thought it was lousy. Re-read it as a man and thought it was magnificent, and read the rest of Hemingway. Some stuff is just better reading for a mature man than a young one."

Dann Anthony replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"I reread a lot of the classics from high school English class - Moby Dick and Grapes of Wrath in particular - what struck me was how much I missed the first time, how different the story appeared through an older lens. Those are my motivations for…"

"No indeed - great summato (stop you from being you). And Nixon didn't attempt to kill the enemies on his famous Enemies List, Paul Newman included. Am truly delighted with the intelligent responses to this question - thanks, Devin!"

Devin Foil replied to Dann Anthony's discussion Having enemies a sign of character?
"I don't have a nemesis. I don't have any enemies in sense of having enemies in war.  But I do think that people who want to stop "you" from being "you" is an enemy, and that can apply to a very strange person who…"

"I believe so. Beeing a man includes standing up for what you believe. And that means that someone is on the other side. Character means you are man enough to face them."
