Things to Click On
* filmgeek took me for a trip down memory lane. You might like taking it, too. (Final Cut)
* Think you've given a certain cash-grabbing director enough of your money? Shawn has, and I sure have as well. (7 Dollar Popcorn)
* Anytime I become aware of a post that's been written in my honor, it gets a link here. Nick counts down his Top 10 Sports Movies (note, Nick does not like sports, hence some of his wacky choices). (R2D2)
* Weird - when I started the LAMBcast, I thought I was following a number of great ones that I ended up loving. Turns out, a group of us all started at just about the same time. The Film Cynics just celebrated a year (no commemorative post), as did Simon and Jo. Happy birthday to us all (and here's hoping that Simon, Jo, Steve and/or Brian can all make it onto a future LAMBcast). (Screen Insight)
* Kai and Heather are back with another tag-team Top 10 list, and it's another kickass one. (The List/Movie Mobsters)
* And finally, another list: Alex counts down her Top 5 Teen Comedies. You gotta love anyone that loves Better Off Dead this much. (Film Forager)
Movies watched for the first time (non-theatrically) since last week:
It's all Dexter, all the time at Casa de Fletch. Close to wrapping up season 2, and I'm currently mildly upset at the awesome Netflix for only having those first two seasons available via Watch Instantly. Gonna have to go all old school and get a single disc at a time from them for seasons 3 and 4. Boo.
Music I'm currently obsessed with:
Nothing comes to mind this week. Revisited The Postal Service's great (and only) album, Give Up this week. Still waiting for another. For whatever reason, Death Cab just doesn't do all that much for me, but P.S. I love. Weird, I know. Here's a homemade music video to my favorite tune off the album, "Nothing Better." (Sidenote: Every time I listen to it, I wonder if Gibbard's lack of sports knowledge is responsible for the "third quarter" line in reference to a soccer match - in which there are no quarters - or if it was intentional.)
Book I'm currently reading:
* Per Jess (I believe), I'm reading David Baldacci's The Camel Club. It's a political conspiracy theory thriller (page turner) that I imagine will read similarly to a Dan Brown book, minus the puzzle aspect (I've not read a Baldacci novel before).
It's alright so far. I'm not engrossed with it, and am put off a bit by the occasions when Baldacci condescends his readers by doing something like writing "RPG" and then two sentences later explaining what that is (it's all done very unnaturally), but otherwise I imagine it'll be a breezy read.
