I haven’t exactly been putting the blogging world on fire here recently. Things have been busy at work and all, but there are a few things that I would like to point out that I’ve been up to lately:
First of all, I just finished the book Who Are You People? by Shari Caudron. If you’re a fascinated by the deep recesses of pop culture and how people can be completely obsessed with one thing, then you must read this book. If you have any interest in human psychology or behavior, you should read this book. If you just like a good, enjoyable, interesting read, then yes, you should read this book.
The new Shins album is as good as everyone says it is.
I watched Borat for the third time recently, this time on DVD. It continues to be as funny and shocking as the first time, though on the third go around, it struck me that the same people who came across as the most bigoted in the movie were some of the most understanding at first. Watch the dinner party scene carefully and those people put up with a lot of shit (literally) before loosing their temper. The guy at the rodeo should still be slapped around for being a moron though. And the extra 30 minutes are golden – rent or buy the DVD to watch it – its worth it.
If you haven’t tried Pink Truck Wine, you’re missing out on one of the best pink wines you’ll ever have. This isn’t some candy-ish white zin – this is real wine with acid, and flavor, and character.
