    Wow. I feel like someone just told my that my favourite child is the most terrible person they've ever met.

    Manhunter was awesome. The climax where Graham and Dollarhyde are fighting with "In-a-Gadda-da-Vida" playing at full volume is fucking incredible. The name was changed from Red Dragon because, being the 80s, the producers thought people would think it was a karate movie.

    Roger Moore's autobiography "My Word Is My Bond". He's pretty diplomatic about things and doesn't really talk shit about anyone (and for someone who was in the business as long as he was, I'm sure he'd know plenty), but it's still fairly entertaining. Being the James Bond nerd that I am a lot of the parts about the making of those films is good stuff nonetheless.

    I'm reading the new Stephen Kin book "Under the Dome". I'm nearly done and I still can't tell if it's horrible or genius. I'll decide when it's over. Eitherway I haven't been able to put it down since I started it.

    re-reading Romance of the Three Kingdoms the ultimate Chinese historical classic after about 14 years since I last looked at it

    very very dry in translation but a good way to understand the Chinese psyche and history

    I'm reading Not A Hazardous Sport by Nigel Barley, about his experiences in Sulawesi. It's rather amusing and enlightening. He's an anthropologist.

    I'm reading Neal Stephenson's The System of the World (book three of the Baroque Cycle). Hopefully the new George R R Martin ships in 30 days. :)

    just finished Neil Gaiman's novella Coraline and loved it!
    going to get through the rest of his short stories when I can

    am trying to get through the Chinese Historical Epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms but damn the translation is dry and fairly boring
    also very long winded when it goes off on historical tangents and then tells you to look at a reference at the end of the 3rd book

    oh, well

    next series I'll read is Phillip Pullman's Northern Lights trilogy, the first book was remained and made into the movie The Golden Compass

    better to drink Finlandia than Smirnov, its sharpness would make any paint on a car bonnet peel :)

    Have to admit to being a fan of Finlandia, much smoother and better flavour.

    I wonder what he would think of what they are doing to his vodka these days? They are adding all sorts of girly flavours and pre-mixed crap.

    Just finished reading Footsteps by late Indonesian author Pramoedya Ananta Toer. It's the third book of a trilogy set in the lenthy Dutch colonial period. Might have to try to get hold of the last one.

    Adding all the flavours? Really, I didn't know that I thought it was a new thing.
    I look on the grog shelves and see all the new flavours of everything and think, whatever happened to just straight liquor?
    It's like frickin' toilet paper....aisles of the stuff, and all you want to do is wipe your arse with it. :bah:
    Hahaha, sorry.

    I just finished reading number one in the Falconfar saga, by Ed Greenwood, waiting on the library to get number two in.

    put aside The Romance of the 3 Kingdoms for the moment

    just finished reading Coraline & Other Short Stories by Neil Gaiman which was so superb and have just started on the Dark Materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman (the first book The North Lights was turned into the movie The Golden Compass)
    it is one of those rare "just one more chapter" books where you find it hard to put down and just want more and more
    plus interesting take on religion because it's a world where Calvin (from the Calvinist movement) became Pope and incorporated science into the theology, then dissolved the Church and since then Science & Religion have been fused as one but the world is basically a Theogarchy

    Currently reading Under the Tuscan Sun (Yes, I know there's a movie, but apparently Hollywood murdered the story, much like they always do).
