Artsy Fartsy

If you get a few minutes you should listen to these guys.  I especially like "Girl With a Microscope".  The fact that it is written and played and sung by a friend makes it even better.

This weekend Master and I watched two movies.  "Prince of Persia" was pretty camp, but a decent popcorn movie when there is only crap on the five million channel wasteland.  We rented "RED" which made me laugh.  It stands for "Retired Extremely Dangerous".  The old guys kick the youngsters asses.  It was worth the watch.  John Malkovitch was the best.

I am still rereading "The Girl that Kicked the Hornets Nest".  The second time is not as good as the first.  I am reading it from an author's perspective rather than letting the story pull me along.  Stieg Larson tended to over describe his minor characters and situations and while the core story is awesome... all the little forays into these other things are a distraction that makes me tend to put the book down.

I have been writing some again after a month or two of winter blahs... I will add some to "Vanished" the current story on "Whats she writing now."

Time to get ready for work.  And it is another day of icy rain/snow/slush... wish it would make its mind up... wish "it" would decide to be sunny/warm.

Have a good one... what are you listening to?  reading? watching?


  1. listening to a plethora of stuff on my ipod, ranging from Queen to John Tesh to Black Eyed Peas...reading my guilty pleasure (again)...

    David Eddings and the Mallorean Chronicles. (i'm reading book 4 of 5 currently). Gosh i love this series.

    And blogs. i am so behind on blogreading.

    and it's March 1st so winter is *behind* us now.

    i say it, so it must be so, yes??? (laughing)


  2. At the moment I'm listening to the kids watch Dora Saves The Crystal Kingdom, which is slowly sapping my will to live.

    I'm reading The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer, a psychology professor at University of Manitoba.

    I'm not watching much of anything. We just cancelled the channels I watch to save money. Phooey.

  3. I'm not watching anything, still reading Master: An Unauthorized Autobiography of Master R, which is fascinating, recently read Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert, the latest Nora Roberts, working on The Speed of Trust by Steven Covey, Jr., and Subversive Southerner: Anne Braden and the struggle for racial justice in the cold war south.
