Then Again

Certainly one of the best biographies of the year. Long live Annie Hall!

The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science

LeanMeanJosephine, December 29, 2010

What a wonderful journey through the sciences, as told by a Angier, a supremely witty and astute tour guide! I can't recommend this book highly enough.

King Kong: 2-Disc Widescreen Special Edition (2005)
King Kong: 2-Disc Widescreen Special Edition (2005)

LeanMeanJosephine, August 14, 2006

Visually, this movie is a stunner---absolutely beautifully shot and animated. But as far as story development... what a yawn. I was really disappointed that two-thirds of the way through I simply didn't care anymore. Sure, the girl loves the big ape; sure, the producer wants to exploit the unbelievable beast. We get it! Don't beat us over the heads, for the love of Mike. Would I recommend it to friends? Well, yes. But I'd offer the caveat that one should plan on washing the dog or making dinner about halfway through.

Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds by Bernd Heinrich
Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds

LeanMeanJosephine, August 14, 2006

This book is utterly fascinating. Granted, it helps if you have some basis of interest in nature studies, ravens or birds, and/or brain physiology to find Heinrich's writing as riveting as I -- but, indeed, riveted you'll be! Heinrich covers a wealth of information about ravens and their habits, habitats, and astounding brains. These birds are truly remarkable, smart characters, and this book does them justice.
