What'cha doing? meme
What have you just finished reading?
A graphic novel discussing comics as an art form. An oldie but a goodie. Very well worth a read, and I plan to check it out again.
What are you reading now?
John Straley's The Curious Eat Themselves
It's a mystery set in Alaska. I basically read it during commercial breaks if there's nothing else on tv to switch to, so it really hasn't caught my attention.
What are you going to read next?
Homeplace by Beth Massie
This is a horror novel and one of those things that got onto my reading list but I have no idea where I heard of it. The first line goes like this: They waited until twilight to uncover the well.
I don't know much about it, but that line does have me hooked.
What have you watched this week?
I'm watching episodes of Spectacle, which is Elvis Costello interviewing musicians. I had no idea what an amazing singer Elton John is. Tony Bennett was fantastic because, while he was there for his own interview, he also actively showcased other musicians, bringing his own jazz pianist, whom he encouraged the crowd to clap for, and asking of Costello's wife could come up and play piano for him. I just finished the Lou Reed interview this morning. He also brought up another artist, this one a director who made a movie, Berlin, based on some of Reed's music.
What will you watch next?
The Magnificent Seven because I've been on a big Kurosawa kick and that's gotten me watching movies influenced by Kurosawa films.
