Supernatural - good show with an awesome soundtrack.  Wish they'd release CDs of the classic rock in that show.  (Disclaimer: I've only seen the first season and part of the second, but it was great up until then!)

I really really really can't stand Kubrick.

Glad to know I'm not alone.  I've tried at least three of his movies, and found them all terrible and boring, despite everyone else in the universe seemingly saying he's the greatest filmmaker in the history of ever.

I'm now... 8 books, I think, into re-reading Wheel of Time (don't care if other people hated it - I liked it enough to read it again). 

Happened to pick up and start reading what I believe is the latest book in the Wild Cards series, Inside Straight.  George R. R. Martin fans, check that series out.  He didn't write it all, but he was the editor for the whole thing, and most of it's very good stuff.  It's a shame that the earlier books are hard to find offline. 

And I read some other book about time travel just last weekend, liked it, and already can't think of the name. :D

Saw District 9 last night.  Thought it was really good stuff.

Dude - I just watched The Guild for the first time today (not a MMORPG player, but it was funny anyway).  You look like Bladezz!

Psycho- Pretty good stuff. I didn't find it all too scary, but it was a good mystery thriller. It's contribution to the genre is huge.

It's amazing to see that now and think about the differences between horror movies then and now.  It was so genuinely scary that a LOT of people said they couldn't take showers any more after watching it.  The thing is that since it was so successful, the good parts have been copied a million times since then, so it's all old hat if you're watching it now for the first time.  Like you said, its contribution to the genre was huge.

Oddly enough, this new version makes me MORE likely to play it.  Haven't played it before, have a PSP with me pretty much all the time...  I just hope that despite the changes, it's a great game.

The Ring. Piece of crap that makes no sense at all. I want my 2 hours back.

I'm totally telling my wife you felt that way - she hates that movie for the same reasons, and up until now, I think I'm the only one who's agreed with her.  So many people think that movie's super awesome.  We just don't get it.

Better stick with something like light beer - you'll get alcohol poisoning if you don't! ;)

Watched Rocky Horror Picture Show for the second time.  It was just as weird as the first time. :)

Across the Universe.  Trippy.

Watched Juno and Heathers for the first time this last weekend (yeah, Heathers is like 20 years old or something).  Both were good stuff.

Oh, and in case I didn't say so, Transformers last week - entertaining, but silly.  Even too silly for a movie about CGI robots at times.

And since we don't actually have a thread for this kind of thing, I saw The 39 Steps on Broadway yesterday night.  Really enjoyed it.  Funny show, the actors did a great job, and there were a lot of Hitchcock nods (some more subtle than others).

Finished the Ramayana last night at about 1:30.  Great stuff.  The same author (Ashok Banker) is tackling the Mahabharata next, but he says he's up to 18 volumes of 800 pages, and it sounds like he's not done yet.  That's a lot of reading, even for someone who loves books.

Sorry, Monkey - wrong Syracuse.  You mean the one in NY, I meant the one in Utah. :)

i know someone who lives in utah and and often says that the salt lake reeks.

Depending on where you live, that's totally true.  It's a "dead lake," which means that water flows in, but it doesn't flow out, and it's salt water (hence the name).  Back in the late 1800s, if not later, it was so salty that you couldn't sink in it!  That's not true now, but it's still salty enough that they farm brine shrimp there.

So... if you live in some places, the wind blows in off the lake, especially in the evenings, and you get icky salt water brine shrimp farm smell.  It's icky.  I had some friends in Syracuse, and it smells like that there.

And since with all of these posts, I haven't actually posted any pics, here's one of my cat in a tree.  She's as close as I have to a kid:


And I know some frown on this kind of thing, but I thought this was a very nice pic of the Empire State Building at night:
