Songs come right from the text from Chuck Klosterman's "Killing Yourself To Live" in which he takes a road trip to famous sites of rock N roll deaths, but it reads like a journal of his random thoughts about music and his past relationships with women. The mix hits on a lot of the main themes of the book, but it probably only makes sense if you've read the book (which I recommend). I may try to this for his other books "Fargo Rock City" and "Sex, Drugs & Cocoa Puffs". We'll see.

Unfortunately I can't read 5 sentences consecutively without falling asleep. Heck, I've already forgotten what I just typed!
