The Week(s) in Entertainment
didn't really keep track on the road trip... mostly because I didn't even do much reading, so here's three weeks
Film: Safety Not Guaranteed, a thorough-going delight.
TV:First - Leverage starts tonight, but I'll have to catch it tomorrow (grrr work, yay DVR!) Futurama. ("Kif! Return fire and the cake!" "Our weapons are disabled, and you can't return an ice cream cake! We're doomed!") A lovely Robbie Lewis mystery (which I'd seen on DVD but thoroughly enjoyed watching again).
Read: Two brilliant books - Tell the Wolves I'm Home, a tremendously moving coming-of-age story about a girl in 1987 who suffers the loss of her beloved uncle to AIDS, and then meets her uncle's beloved; and Alif the Unseen, an indescribable book about a youngish Muslim hacker in an unnamed Gulf State and his encounters with state security ... and djinni. Also a tremendously good book called Suzy's Case about a malpractice lawyer whose client list is mostly criminal, but not entirely. Throne of the Crescent Moon, a rousing good fantasy novel about a ghul hunter in a Muslim-based world very unlike our own.
