M. John Harrison, The Pastel City.

Hidalgo

There was so much music at the seder last night I can't remember which song was last - somebody put on a Lyle Lovett cd, and the Pogues were on at one point, neither of which are anywhere in my music collection - but I do remember when we were telling the story at the dinner table and got to the ten plagues, I let my long hair out of my ponytail and gave an impromptu solo performance of Metallica's Creeping Death, complete with air guitar, to the general approval of the crowd.

Book: Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. A troubling little book.

Movie: Secondhand Lions. A flawed movie with some endearing aspects.

Song: Sunshine of Your Love by Cream. A really kick ass classic.

Book - I'm not sure if I'm supposed to tell you the last book I finished or what I'm currently reading.  I'm in the middle of: The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian (bedside table) by Robert E. Howard, Eric Meyer on CSS (desk), True Names: And the Opening of the Cyberspace Frontier (back of the toilet) by Vinge, et al, The Anger Management Sourcebook (shelves near the hot tub) by Glenn R. Schiraldi and Melissa Hallmark Kerr.  The most recent book I finished was The Great American Gun Debate: Essays on Firearms & Violence by Don B. Kates, et al.

Movie - Alien Resurection (not the first time I've seen it, but my wife bought me the nine-disc Alien Quadrilogy boxed set for Xmas...bless her heart.)

Song - I think we cut the disc off this morning right after Baby Beluga by Raffi.  The last adult song I listened to was Girl you Want by Devo.

Book you read?
Just finished Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Somehow i've never picked that book up before, shame on me.

Movie you watched?
Secret Window starring Johnny Depp. Not bad, Not bad.


Song you listened to?
Hmm, I guess I had a Pantera cd still running in the car on the way to work this morning. (ahh, the good old days) I wasn't totally with it so I'm not sure which song was playing.

Book
Computer Science for Java - don't get me started

Movie
Return of the King - again and again and again!  (Will the rush that I get from the horsemen smashing into the orcs ever get old?  I don't think so...)

Song
Uh... I was listening to a song from the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack.  Does that count?

Movie: Hellboy... really nailed the feel of the comic, and Abe Sapien was perfect

Song: Currently, "Shipbuilding" by Elvis Costello... whoops, just rotated into "Gloria" by Patti Smith   "Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine"

Is that a real song?  What are the lyrics?

Patti Smith, the punk rock Poet Laureate... she did a version of "Gloria"... you know G... L... O... R... I... A

Very first line of the kind of rambling discourse introduction is the line I quoted.

Off of her first album... Horses or you can find it on the soundtrack to Wonderland

Damn fine song

Destiny by Elizabeth Haydon (pretty good, last book of a trilogy that starts with Rhapsody)

Thanks.  Accoring to Google, this must be the intro:

Quote
Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
meltin' in a pot of thieves
wild card up my sleeve
thick heart of stone
my sins my own
they belong to me, me

people say "beware!"
but I don't care
the words are just
rules and regulations to me, me


Very interesting....

Not to interrupt the flow, but, man, great book. James Morrow is in my top five favorite writers easily.
