I haven't had a whole lot of time for either lately, but have squeezed in a few. 

Books

  • I'm in the midst of Scott's copy of Barry Eisler's Killing Rain.  Good fun, as always
  • I'm about half way through Herman Melville's Typee, about his jumping ship in the South Pacific.  Quite the adventure story, and much quicker pacing than the Melville I've read before (i.e. Moby Dick)
  • Sandor Ellix Katz's The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved.  A very informative read about the state of the "underground" American food revival.  There are a lot of people out there trying to reclaim traditional and sane eating practices.  Good to know.
  • I just finished Carl Hiaasen's Tourist Season.  He can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned, and I've loved every hilarious thing I've read of his.

Movies

  • Less to tell here, I'm afraid.  Not too much has wowed lately
  • I finally saw 300, and it blew.  Totally.  Very sad.
  • My favorite of late has been Road to Perdition.  I never would have thought I'd believe Tom Hanks as a gangster, but it was a great film.  Fantastic camera angles, interesting cast, great script.  Well done.
