Recommend a book - fiction or non-fiction- dealing with the uncertain, endless posibilities of life

What should I read? Recommend a book (fiction or non-fiction), life affirming, something to be read after a heartbreak/letting go. Possibly involving fate/destiny, and the uncertainty/infinite possibilities of life.

Horummmm mmmmmuuuuuuuummmm oweeeeeeeeee horrrrrrrrrrrrr

I love listening to the groaning music of Mark Morgan (the Fallout soundtracks) and Lustmord (dark, dark ambient) while I read. I've been trying to find some similar music, but last.fm insists that Mark Morgan is like all other game soundtrack composers and Lustmord is akin to gothic wailing*. So I turn to you. What other artists make music with this grinding, eerie, screetchingly dark post-apocalyptic quality? * Nothing wrong with gothic wailing, just not when I'm reading.

where to sleep in the city that never sleeps

Hotel recommendations needed for NYC. Ideally downtown. Not crazy expensive, but it's for my parents, so it needs to be fancier than a backpacker's hotel/hostel (eg, private bath, not too noisy, clean, etc). Many thanks!

Portland OR recommendations Wanted

Questions/recommendations re Portland, Oregon: (1) name of a good "out-of-the-box" photographer for a male for some personal shots (don't send me to Sears or any "traditionalist" photography company); (2) "life coach" (NOT looking for a licensed professional) who is incredibly adept at exercising perspective (my dear friends are miserable at it, lol); and (3) an absolutely great massage. Think that pretty much answers all of my desires :)

Wookin' pa Dub

I'd like to get a little more into dub and acquire some albums. I like what I understand to be the more typical kind of tracks: long, rumbly instrumentals and would prefer to largely avoid anything with predominant vocals. Does anyone have any particular albums or artists to recommend? Compilations are a-okay. [more inside]

Help me find suspense/horror books whose characters don't suck!

I just finished reading Scott Smith's "The Ruins" and loved it. I want to read more books like this (and his original "The Simple Plan"). Basically, I want all the suspense and horror, but the people have to seem real to me. I don't have to like them, I just want to know what they are thinking/feeling/fearing so that they aren't just numbers on some gorefest scoreboard. Bonus points if the author is semi-prolific, so I have choices for further reading. Help me, hive mind!
