Books, movies, music, and more
I’ve spent the past few weeks catching up on books, movies, music, and television. Here are opinions on a few of the things I’ve consumed, in less than 25 words per item:
“3:10 to Yuma”-My favorite Western movie to date, as well as my favorite Russell Crowe performance ever.
Coldplay “LeftRightLeftRightLeft”-Coldplay issues new challenge to insomniacs with this free live download album.
“Books of Magic” by Gaiman, Bolton, et al.-Neil Gaiman needs to have a legal talk with J.K. Rowling, whose “Potter” debuted years after “Books.” Loved every bit of this TPB.
Green Day “21st Century Breakdown”-Wait…Is it possible that I never really liked them in the first place? I sorta like “Peacemaker.”
Dream Theater “A Rite of Passage” (single)-A “single” clocking in at close to nine minutes? I’m in. Curious to hear the full-length.
Office “Mecca”-They had me at “Trainwreck DJs.”
“The Office” (T.V. Show)-Two shows to go, and I’ll be current with the just-wrapped season. “I am not to be truffled with.”
Jeff Coen-An incredibly well-documented book covering the minutia of the trial that brought down the Chicago mob. Better than fiction.
“30 Rock”-I’m alone in this, but I haven’t found much from this season worth watching or quoting.
Ting Tings-Suck Suck.
