We meet wild man Freddy Martinez, an acid-tripping biker, at the start of J. Martinez would work the nearby oilfields for eight or nine months at a time and then quit to blow his money on partying and travel until he was broke. Anselmi paints his life and death as products of the nauseating boom-and-bust cycle in which Rock Springs and its residents have always been trapped. Dust, tumbleweeds, and bits of human detritus, blown by wind, flit through town. Rust and dirt cover the Rock Springs Coal arch.

Life doesn’t pull any punches: talking heavy with j.j. anselmi
In twenty heavy chapters, this book chronicles Anselmi's experiences growing up as a straight edge, BMX-riding metal head in Rock Springs, Wyoming, a place with one of the highest per capita suicide rates in the United States.

His grandpa was a well-known businessman and politician in the area, and was featured in a 60 Minutes episode for his alleged connections to organized crime. This is only the beginning of Anselmi's heavy saga, and it interweaves all of the social and personal history one might expect from a story like this—including Black Sabbath, Pantera, and Metallica logo tattoos, explorations in LSD, metal and BMX culture, self-loathing and sobriety, and—finally—a very unique perspective on what it means to live in a heavy fucking world.

Jun 28, Aaron Lozano rated it it was ok. I wasn't in love with Anselmi's writing style but found him to be readable. What I didn't care for in this read was mostly a very narrow worldview presented in a format where Anselmi attempts to appear rather worldly and as an expert on things he is not. He is certainly an expert on his personal experience and that part of the reading is fascinating and makes this book readable. His inferences based on his personal experience at times are laughable, and not in a good way.
He seems to be still se I wasn't in love with Anselmi's writing style but found him to be readable. He seems to be still searching for something to validate some things for himself, and I hope he finds them someday because I do think he has potential to write something much better.

Think I picked this up on a Kindle sale and having finished the book I am not sure why I did. The author comes across Well done, your family has money but you chose to be an alcoholic who likes drugs and introduced his straight a grade sister to weed.
Not a good read, alas.

Jul 31, Aubrey Caudill rated it liked it. This book ended up not being for me. I had hoped with all the self depreciation that the author had a great zinger to wrap up the ending.
Alas he didn't. The story is very mono-colored and one angled in its telling. I wouldn't recommend it. Aug 16, Cindy Moore rated it really liked it. Lots of believable Rock Springs culture.
Lots of music lots of drugs. Not enough of journey after. Apr 20, C rated it did not like it. I am really far behind on putting up reviews for the books that I have read this year, so I am leaving only the star ratings for a few. Strangely, I feel quite guilty about that But the longer I leave it, the less the possibility that I will actually update with what I have read.
