The Weird Book Room.

At the end of this post I’m gonna link you to one of the best things ever and I guarantee you’ll want to buy at least one thing from it.

I think I’ve bought over 30 books since Christmas.
I’ve got this great idea to turn my spare room into a walk in library one day but it’s just an idea.

A pal of mine told me about some strange book titles to look out for and mentioned some of these…

Those titles are part of a ‘Weird Book Room’ list from Abebooks.
They are by no means the weirdest books to be found.

I’ve already bought 6 books from the list.

TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF

An Alternate View.

Do you know that ‘Scrubbed’ versions of movies are available online?

‘Scrubbed’ means:
‘Edited to remove nudity, sex, profanity and excessive violence’.

Robocop‘ and ‘Shaun Of The Dead‘ are just two titles on offer.

How in the hell does ‘Robocop’ work with no profanity and excessive violence?
When you remove all of that,
You’re gonna be left with a film that lasts 5 minutes,

I hate it when people censor things and muck about with editing.

Although,
That said,
I like it sometimes.

Things could have been so different…

That last one’s just plain wrong though.

An Introduction…

Alan Cook.
That’s me.

I’m 26 and I’m an Illustrator & musician from Bellshill which is just outside of Glasgow, Scotland.

I have a few other pages dotted about the place.
