  • Fragile things : short fictions and wonders by Gaiman, Neil.
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Neil Gaiman is a natural treasure of Fantasy; assuming you love Fantasy you will love this book. It is full of interesting lexicon such as muzzle-dexter, collosal, Earls Court, a man named Alice and a reference to the Great Gatsby that I can't get behind. Aliens. Carpet factory. Deja-vue. Chelsea; which could be a reference to New York. Wartime austerity. And I quote:

    "That night the professor climbed the stairs of her house, slowly, painstakingly, floor by floor."

    It's not in third person, if you don't enjoy first person manuscripts; you will not enjoy this book.

  • The beach bum
    ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    If you are rained in looking for a party-vibe feel for your evening this movie might help you. This film is like a psychedelic version of Scarface without any plot, drugs, guns, or violence. Watch as Moondog embodies the surreal logic of addiction as played out in his Florida keys environment; including but not limited to exhibiting little to no remorse when his addiction is implicated in an accident that wipes his wife from the remainder of the film (killing off an interesting character does little to endear us to him or his lifestyle, and removes the hope of any distracting side plot). Nevertheless, the cast does a great job with what they are given. It's hard to know how to judge a lifestyle yours, or Moondogs, when presented with such an extreme risk-taking behavior version of life. I think the reason why this film doesn't have more stars is because the people looking for entertainment on film; are watching about an idea of life which they have never dreamed or contemplated of whether it's open relationships, spending all your time on Yachts, having to afford an addiction for a whole house full of people. This is a very extreme presentation of circumstances; neither is it going to remind anyone of the 1960s, but comedy is comedy and this ain't no Dumb and Dumber. Enjoy!
