jessica posts on 2/15/2006 10:06:12 PM im suppose to write a compare and contrast essay of slapstick and slaughter house-five and was wondering if anyone had any ideas of how i should go about that?
Joseph DeMarco posts on 1/8/2006 1:21:55 AM A couple ideas that come to mind; war, politics, the Avian flu, anti-German feelings and cultural prejudices, genetic freaks, extended artificial family middle name, artificial family utopia, "Hi ho" is "a senile hiccup"...Vonnegut facing death the one end that won't go away.
Frosty posts on 1/5/2006 3:52:39 PM Im doing my senior paper on slapstick and I need a theme. I enjoyed the book but also im struggling with developing a thesis for the paper. I want to tie the the hi ho use the hi hos as a subject or not really I just want some imput.

Makaveli posts on 11/16/2005 9:42:51 AM I recently finished Sirens of Titan, and enjoyed it immensely. One question. Winston Rumfoord's Taj Mahal-esque palace was named something like Dun Roaman (not sure on the second word). What's the exact name of it? Is it latin? I Wanted to translate the name and now I can't figure it out. I returned the book to the library. Thanks a lot if anyone can help me out! Also, what's the next one by Mr. Vonnegut I should check out? I read sirens and slaughterhouse already. Tx again!
Joseph DeMarco posts on 11/7/2005 4:56:15 PM I know last Father's Day he made an appearance in Chicago...I realize this doesn't help much but I only mention it because it proves that he does still make appearances...
Joe posts on 11/7/2005 4:27:27 PM Does anyone know when or where Kurt will be making an appearance? Does he even come out anymore? I have not seen any info in a long time. I live in New York City and would really like to see him before he pushes up the it goes...
wayne posts on 10/4/2005 9:51:24 PM I was wondering if anyone knew if Vonnegut would be in Philadelphia in the near future?
Koboi posts on 9/26/2005 8:57:00 PM Ok, I'm here, potterhater (I mean potterlover)
Vanda De'lore posts on 7/14/2005 1:57:22 PM "A Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" has nothing on Vonnegut! I read "Slaughterhouse 5" first, and it totally ruined the Guide. I didn't think it was anything but stupid after Billy Pilgrim and Kilgore Trout! Kiss kiss!
