Reading "Into the Wild" again.
I read it years ago, when it first came out, after reading the original story in "Outside" magazine.
But I just saw Sean Penn's take on the story at the theater Friday. Awesome. I had to dig out the book and dive in with renewed vigor.

Oooohhhh....Harry Potter 7!!! If you enjoyed the others you're gonna LOVE this one. Don't worry...no spoilers from me. It is much darker than any of the others...that's all I'm gonna say.

I picked up "The Beatles - The Biography" by Bob Spitz from the library yesterday. I've only read the blurb so far but it looks good.

Hey Mojo...so the movie's out? Cool. I'll have to see if my wife wants to go. We haven't been to a theater in years (DVD's instead)...might be fun.
She read the book a few years ago and then passed it to me. It's one of those that you don't want to put down once you start.

Yep, Rakzr --- it just came out Friday.
I highly recommend it; very well done.
Share a bucket of popcorn and a large soda with your sweetie and enjoy the big screen. The Alaskan scenery is great!

Alan watts: nature, Man and woman... Just a fantastic book. It is a noble attempt to integrate the ideas of the west with the philosophies of the east. Not to be taken as a blatent survey of either, just a good way of thinking about what is going on around us!

I thought it was pretty good. The ending is kind of a letdown, but I'd definitely recommend it.

I've finally finished the Beatles book!!!! Man, that was some serious reading. It kinda changed my opinion of the fab four, tho. I've learned that the "clean cut boy next door" thing was really nothing but PR mumbo jumbo. The lads were quite the little devils.

...And in the end...drugs and egos really dug in deep and split them apart. Well, and Yoko...man, I hate her. Mad

I watched part of Paul McCartney - The Space Within Us last night on PBS. I was listening to the people talk about what a kind, generous man he is...but after reading that book it seems like Paul was the biggest drama queen of them all. He had to be the center of attention and have things his way. Has he grown up or is he just that good at schmoozing people after all these years??

No bother...If anything, I love the Beatles more now than I did before I read the book. Very Happy
