Prozac Nation

"Prozac Nation is a 2001 American drama film directed by Erik Skjoldbjærg, starring Christina Ricci, Jason Biggs and Anne Heche. It is based on an autobiography of the same name by Elizabeth Wurtzel, which describes Wurtzel's experiences with major depression. The title is a reference to Prozac, the brand name of an antidepressant she was prescribed." (Wiki)

Life Keith Richards

So the front cover of the edition I read goes while the spine has 'Keith Richards Life', since mine comes from the library a catalogue sticker covers the word 'Life' on the spine. All that is neither here nor there but the fact that the book was written with James Fox (no not the co-star of 'Performance' with Mick and Anita) is worthy of note and he gets due mention on the title page and on the inside/back of the dust jacket. The book reads pretty much as a monologue with Keith as first person and is interspersed with various characters contributing their version of events.

Infection on the Site

I've noticed that advertisements have begun appearing at the top of the page and in blue letters similar to the font used on the site spriuking for the 'US Powerball Lottery', 'How to take part if you're not in the USA', 'Learn how to safely update windows' etc. It could be an infection in my browser (Chrome).

A Handbill/Notice to attract Contributers

I mentioned in a comment in the string; 'An App for Usage Tracker' that I was intending to produce a Handbill/Flyer to put places like QuIHNN, BIALA, etc to attract more contributers.


To this end I am appealing for ideas and suggestions for topics, logos, attitude('tude), locations and whatever else could be relevant to the task. 


Don't be shy, I know that there are people looking at this who have demonstrated their ability to think creatively and their knowledge of the topic from whatever angle so don't be shy, we're all adults here.
