A brief overview, generally from right to left, top to bottom:

- 1 TimBuk2 messenger bag, perhaps the largest they make. This has resulted in poor posture but excellent preparedness for any situation.

- 1 hipster water bottle.

- 1 Moleskine notebook (medium, hardcover) for meeting notes and website wireframes.

- 1 Moleskine notebook (medium, softcover) for personal sketches.

- 1 Moleskine notebook (small, softcover) for ideas and quotes.

- 1 Field Notes notebook (small, green) for lists.

- 1 rollerball pen for general use.

- 1 Mobile Computing Solution.

- 1 Watch, Diesel.

- 1 Random book I purchased about nutrient dense, super low calorie diets and how they affect aging. I usually buy at least one random book a week to try and learn something interesting and this is the one that came in the mail yesterday. It smells like a basement.

- 1 novel, 5/8 of the way complete.

- 1 cassette tape (Deastro).

- 1 pair of glasses (Lenscrafters).

- 1 iPhone (1st gen).

- 1 wallet, Fossil.

- 1 POG that I've carried around since I was 9.

- 1 digital camera (ancient).

- 1 Leatherman multi-tool (indispensable)

- 1 set of keys

- 1 pencil sharpener

- Assortment of pens, pencils, an x-acto knife and a bone folder (in case I want to fold something really precisely at a moment's notice).

- 1 USB drive (1GB).

- 1 rubber stamp with name and valid email address.

- 1 stack of business cards.

- 1 camera cord.

- 1 pair of earphones.

- 1 roll of exposed 120 film that I've been meaning to drop off for processing since August.

- 1 colorful lanyard that my kid brother made for me a few years ago. I've never used it for anything but it's always in my bag.

- 1 pair of wife's feet (socked).

But "extremely loud and incredibly close" is very likely my favorite fiction book ever.

mattyc says:
my only gripe with it if you have read it is that all three of the narrators have the same voice...ie he didn't create different ways of writing for them each....but the story was soo freaking good and I fell in love with the kid so i allowed that one fault.

mattyc says:
also I'm pretty sure this photo makes you a hipster b/c apparently Foer is a hipster God or something

@mattyc Wow, that was such a poorly composed sentence.

@mattyc I think the hipster literature is canceled out by the non-Apple machine. I hear that Windows XP is hipster poison.

mattyc says:
@childress i totally didn't even notice that part. but you are right about the non apple.

I just made the hipster statement b/c I'd read somewhere that Foer was like a hipster God...which I didn't understand b/c I didnt' necessarily see anything in Extreemly loud that they would really think was that awesome. I always heard jokes about them carrying around Infinite Jest (i forget who wrote it) and honestly didnt' think the really read at all.
