The film was so-so, pretty much what I expected, nothing more and nothing less. I guess when you grew up listening/watching both the BBC radio and TV series, you're a little jaded ;)

the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy series was incredible. the movie is so so but the series is just so awesome it encompases the book completly. (i think thats what i mean?)

Trying to read Hamlet.. But DAMN it's boring. Maybe it's cos I only read it at about 3 am (I have nasty insomnia), but nothing in there makes any sense to me.

I know I want to read it, it just isn't exciting.

Hamlet isn't too hard to understand once you realize that Hamlet's sanity = not so much.

Also reading at 3 AM isn't a good idea. Just sit down and read it all at once, it's not that long.

Anyway I'm currently re-reading Bram Stoker's Dracula as prep for a Vampire LARP I'm playing.

I read Macbeth last semester.

It wasn't bad.

I plan to read Hamlet later this year.

Though I finished reading the play Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller. It's actually a really good play, full of hidden meanings and symbolism.

Though I'm also reading Trigger Happy by Steven Poole. It's an intelligent and rantish approach on video games, covering pretty much every topic to do with video games in concerns to everything else in the world. VERY interesting read.

Though I want to read The Outsiders again.... that book was REALLY good.... So was The Transall Saga....

Ahh yes I remember studying that play in year 11, it was actually pretty good. I thought the movie also did justice to the play unlike most book to movie transitions it was really quite good.

Shame he died last year, though he was 90 so I’m sure he had lived a full life.

late post lol



Yeah, have you also read Arthur Miller's The Crucible, Sinister? It's not as good as Death of a Salesman, but it's certaintly not horrible, and the movie puts paid to the play. [movie > play in the case of the Crucible]

Nope I don’t believe I’ve ever read anything else by him, though I’m currently reading the Dune encyclopaedia and later tonight I shall be starting the Kenshin mangas.

Well, in the wise words of Larry the Cable Guy....

GIT 'ER DONE

*edit*

Fuck, I remembered how you hate over-sized text, Sinister.

I don't hate it per se, it just gets over used far to much and starts to get irritating.
