I'm nearly done with Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs and it is excellent. I am really enjoying it. For me, it was a step up from Fargo Rock City. But that's not why I'm writing this post.

I just noticed an incoming link to my blog through All Consuming. I headed to the site and looked at the linked page. I noticed a site by someone named Eric Nuzum and wondered why it sounded familiar. I went to his blog and realized that he is a friend of Chuck's and referenced in the chapter I just finished.*

Usually when I read a book and people are referenced I put them in the back of my mind. I keep a reference of what they're like to help me contextuallize their additions to the story, but I don't think of them as actual people. This certainly changed that. It probably won't effect the way I read or think but I'm still amused by the whole thing.

*Eric had a similar experience as me, in that a favorite band of his released an album without him knowing (for him it was Killing Joke, for me it was Ben Folds). Also, he has a really interesting Banned Music page, which looks like a more-than-a-companion-site for his book, Parental Advisory: Music Censorship in America.
