A rundown of what’s right now in my media world

Books read most recently:
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire – A slightly different take on the Cinderella story. I liked it.
HappinessTM by Will Ferguson – Fantastic. Nothing like imagining what would happen if a self-help book that said it would fix EVERYTHING actually did.

Books I’m Currently reading:
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb – haven’t really started it yet, so nothing to say.

Last Movies Seen:
Shrek II – Fun, funny, animated hilarity and a hairball that’s just too realistic to describe.
The Fast and the Furious – not being a huge Vin Diesel fan, I didn’t see this in theatre. It was on tv for free, so I watched it because I was bored. It was stupendously horrible.

Next Movie I intend to see:
Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie – Documentary about the making of the atomic bomb.
Hiroshima – four hour miniseries about the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima (do I detect a trend here?)

Magazine Subscriptions I have:
Popular Photography & Imaging
Harper’s

Magazine Subscriptions I want:
National Geographic, Canadian Geographic, Cottage Life, Outdoor Photographer, and so on ad infinitum

    Have you ever read “Wicked”- Gregory Maguire? A very different take on “The wizard of Oz”. It’s a great book.

      I read that one a couple of months ago. I quite liked it.
