I have decided to leave "Shop Girl" on the shelf on more than one occasion, Lisa. So, thanks!

I have only seen a couple of films lately that I enjoyed. "16 Blocks" and "The Fastest Indian". I was surprised that I enjoyed these two films.

Scary, gory and war movies don't appeal to me. Especially, the Vietnam stuff. I think I feel too disturbed by them. I saw "Apocalypse Now" years ago and vowed to never watch it again. I didn't enjoy Deer Hunter because of the Christopher Walken parts.

Such a pity I'm like this because I think I miss the point, totally!


I actually read "Shopgirl" if you can believe it. Steve Martin should stick to acting. Glad I didn't break down and see the film.

On the other end, Apocalypse Now? AWESOME movie. Thanks for the tip on Freedomland, will have to check it out.


Blockbuster is sending me Shop Girl this week--we'll see how long I have it before I send it back unwatched. I do that all the time.

BTW, I found your site while doing a search for "World's Best Meatloaf." Your post on that topic from 2004 popped up. I will try it tonight.

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
