Manic Media Consumption.

I am always on the lookout for new media, be it books, music, movies, whatever. Somehow, the last few months have been a regular mediastorm – I've picked up a whole stack of new books, stumbled over some great new bands, and, as the great and almighty Jish has recently done, I now post my summer movie consumption. This ain't gonna be pretty.


  • X2 (X-Men 2)

  • Matrix Reloaded

  • Hulk

  • The Italian Job

  • Finding Nemo

  • Alex and Emma

  • T3: Rise of the Machines

  • Pirates of the Caribbean

  • Charlie's Angels 2

  • Lara Croft: Tomb Raider 2: Yadda Yadda Yadda

  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

  • L'Auberge Espagnole

To Be Seen:

  • Bad Boys II

  • Dirty Pretty Things

  • S.W.A.T.

And ya know, not too many on the 'seen' list are really making onto my 'gotta own' list. More proof positive that I need to either look into more foreign and indie flicks or start making my own, dagnabbit.


What? No Seabiscuit on that list, Geoff? What kind of Kenyon alum _are_ you? Though I'm told they completely changed the book (don't they always?), I actually thought the movie was pretty good.

Hey, Laura! Yeah, yeah, I know -- my mom gave me crap about that too. I dunno -- I like Tobey Maguire, and there's the whole Kenyon thing, but something in me just doesn't care. Maybe it's because I grew up with a pony that was basically a lazy four-legged lawn mower that wouldn't let you ride her. :)

Ha! Misty may have more sense than anyone else from here. At least she comes when you call her. You might mention that she too beat the odds, and that a number of otherwise law-abiding people took some sizable risks to make sure that she could remain here in comfort after she narrowly avoided being put down by her first owners. She's a darn good lawnmower, too, which we appreciate. She's at least 26, and we hope she lives forever. As your father says, she's the best darn dog we ever had!
