Is it any wonder why he's become one of my favorite authors?

A passage from Chuck Klosterman's Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story:

"It will take three hours to decide which compact discs to put in the backseat of my Tauntan [his rental Ford Taurus]. This is the kind of quandry that keeps people like me from sleeping; I never worry about nuclear war or the economy or if we need to establish a Palestinian state, but I spend a lot of time worrying about whether I need to purchase all the less-than-stellar Rolling Stones albums from the 1980s for cataloging purposes."

Ah, a kindred spirit.

They just seem like it. Thanks for pointing out my typo. It's been corrected.

"Hope I die before I get (really) old."*

*It's the Who, I know - the sentiment's still the same.
