Just some random things:
We saw Dark Water about two weeks ago, nothing special, Jennifer Connelly is hot, but this movie was ok, six out of ten stars, nothing special at all. It reminded me of a twilight zone episode.
I’ve been reading a lot this year so far, or at least trying too, I finished James Patterson’s Mary Mary, it was good, not great, better then London Bridges (last years book) which was too over the top, but not as good as lets say Pop Goes the Weasel. Odd titles I know, but if you read the books you would understand. I’ve read seven out of the eleven books that James Patterson has that follows Detective (and now FBI agent) Alex Cross, played by Morgan Freeman in the movies (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls). Melissa has always told me that the first two books (the two that have been made into movies) were the best out of the bunch.
I also read Forgiven, by former WWF, WCW and TNA wrestling writer Vince Russo. Great book. Not your typical wrestling bio since first of all it was written by the person and also because it isn’t one of the cookie cutter bios that WWE tends to put out. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested. Along with the first Mick Foley biography, he actually has two of them, and the Ric Flair bio, which I flew through, I bought it the week in between me moving out of the dorm and back home for about four days and then moving into the aparment, I misplaced the book only to find it in November and finish it in four days. That was a really good WWE bio.
I am now on my third book (out of four) from Christmas, The Shawn Michael’s Story another WWE bio. Its slow, not as easy to get into as Ric Flair’s, but it isn’t bad. Hulk Hogan’s was bad, I could not for the life of me get into that damn book. I’ve tried a few times, but it was just terrible.
After that I have The Historian, about vampires, namely the one that Vlad the Impaler is named after, Dracula. My father got that one for me for Christmas. Then after that I have a shit load of books that I’ve been collecting, ok lets see:
Guns, Germs and Steel
The Island at the Center of the World
Bought a few months ago:
Under the Black Flag (a history of pirates)
The Rule of Four
Schlock Value (given to me by one of my students for Christmas)
Cool Million: How to Become a Million-Dollar Screenwriter (also given to me by the same student)–maybe I should speed this one up huh?
Tales From Development Hell
Books I would like to buy:
The Dante Club
Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark
The Pirate Coast
Cell The Novel by Stephen King
So as you can see, I have a shit load of reading that I would like to get done, and I’m trying my hardest to read during my sub time.
Wish me luck.
