Everything and Nothing / Re: Now watching

I tend to be much more diverse with my obssessive movie watching that with reading books...

Bill-

I loved The Mist-especially the ending. I also dug the fact that the film, ultimately, wasn't even about the "monsters". Human nature; once again on trial...love that sort of thing in fiction.

I saw some folks talking about Hot Fuzz, too. God, what a sweet movie-seen it three times now and I still laugh at the jokes I know are coming. "Looks like me on a good night..."  ha!

There Will Be Blood-WOW. Just watching and listening to Daniel Day-Lewis for almost three hours was hypnotic...great story as well. Cheers again for P.T. Anderson-is the guy capable of making a bad film?

The Dark Night trailer gives me goose bumps...can't wait for that release!

Guilty here. A great instrument for making "odd" music. Nothing else sounds like it...electric bass, too...awesome! Just yesterday I ran bass into pedals into synth into eq into Ableton into more fx...got a lots of mileage out of two notes!

I read a ton these days, though mostly it's horror or other "dark fiction". I've never been able to get into much non-fiction, I guess I read mostly for entertainment purposes, which is what dictates my lit choices. Sci-Fi and Fantasy aren't my thing, either. I've read some and enjoyed it, but these days I tend to want thrills and chills.

Recent books I enjoyed:

Bret Easton Ellis-Lunar Park. Great story and a bit of a different yard than he tends to write. Made me feel something at the end. Good.

Jack Ketchum-Hide and Seek. Not his best story by any means, but again-it made me feel something at the end. Glad this one's back in print.

Joe Hill -Heat Shaped Box. Great first novel by Stephen King's offspring. Hope he dodges the sophomore slump!
