Now I am really mad.
HBO wont sell discs to Netflix for subsequent seasons of Game of Thrones.
HBO is breaking into the streaming market so they want me to take on another feature to bring my Turner Cable bill to more than I pay the cleaning crew here.

Guess it will not be any season 3 at our house.

Allison is close.
I should have stated the comment better.I meant emotionally high maintenance.
These are a drain on the wife's or GF's energy.

Worst example is a man who needs constant approval and support for his plans and ideas.
This might seem foreign to the men on this forum but they do exist.

Bad impression in eastern countries if our first lady gave Best Picture award to Argo. Makes them think it's all a conspiracy against them.

I'm not a Kristen Stewart fan, but she was on crutches so I expect a lot of opiates were on-board.

Only part of the academy awards I saw that I really liked was Jennifer Lawrence getting her award. It wouldn't matter to me what she wore. she's just so natural.

I agree with William Shatner's sentiments. Where were Tina Fey and Amy Poehler?

Skyfall. If you like 007 you will like it. lot of action and little actual blood and no se% or nudity, except bond gets in the shower with a chick , the rest is left to imagination . Javier Bardem is the bad guy, he's great.

Watched 'The Rise of the Guardians' Sunday...loved it! The graphics are wonderful, story is good but I would not recommend it for little ones because of 'Pitch' (aka The Boogieman), keeper of nightmares. I had to watch it first because Ory, Bella & Charlie don't know what the "Boogieman" is, never heard of him and we would like to keep it that way. ^_^

I wasnt going to watch the Jodi Arias trial on HLN My thinking was I was above anything so tawdry.I would cruise past the channel and linger for a couple of minutes.
Bored me but I was fascinated.
I found a condensed version at 5AM when I am awake.
Its the Dr.Drew show with an assortment of mental health and legal professionals discussing the events of the trial day before.
I'm hooked on that hour.
Jodi Arias sure is a classic sociopath with pathological lying tendencies. Media has the public convinced she cant win the "self defense" version.
She admits she killed her boyfriend,but was battered and did it to save herself.
I was around for the Casey Anthony trial when the world wanted her in jail if not the death penalty and she got off.
It makes me wonder how it will go for Jodi.

I think its unusual too.The jury is getting tired of the trial.They sit with heads in their hands,some are seen stretching and yawning.The defense repeats a lot of stuff.
The prosecutor sure tore up the defense expert witness yesterday.
An hour of Dr.Drew is all I need.The brutal forensics and explicit sex testimony just turned me off.

Watched Peter Jackson's King Kong on the weekend. WAY too long. Can this guy make a movie under three hours?!! Could easily have been at least an hour shorter. Way too much time on the island with really silly attacks by every creature imaginable. Original better! Never saw the one from the 70's or early 80's with Jessica Lange. I did see them filming part of it in Astoria under the elevated subway.

I don't watch the TV show Buckwild, but i'm having a deja vu moment from last May. As soon as I heard about this accident and how they were found dead in their truck...I knew it was the same thing that happened to Luke last year. He too died with 2 friends. Unfortunately, all 6 (these latest 3 and Luke and his 2 buddies) were all under the influence of alcohol.
If you know of anyone who goes 4wheeling, "MUDDIN" as they call it...please make them aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide. We always here of the dangers of drinking and driving but this is a whole new area.

I am a Kathleen Bigelow fan and enjoyed the movie. I was actually more moved by The Hurt Locker.

Another psychological movie about drive and inner demons, this time about the criminal mind, was Stone. It starred Edward Norton and Robert DeNiro. Not a box office success, but it had something to say, and every actor was simply amazing. It was a movie that stays with you, so I suppose a person might think twice about being blown away.

And now for something completely different...

Partly different is a movie The Flying Scotsman, about a Scottish bicyclist who pursued a speed record on cycle

We both liked Life of Pi and the intended theme of the book was clearer to me from the movie than the book, but maybe because I had a head's up about it because the movie came second to me. Pi is a very "visually pretty and interesting" movie.

I am with you on the fast moving reads.I just cant get into the trudging thru anything.I started some detective books by Josephine Tey.She was popular in the 30's and I just couldnt get with the pace.
I am not much of a reader anyway.
The fast paced book series I liked were Anita Shreve's books.The Pilots Wife and The Weight of Water plus a few others.These are mostly chik books but not cheap romance.

Would you like to try a Whatcha reading thread?
I don't keep up with current fiction very well, but glad to hear your review of Silva for my husband. I am reading Child of my Heart by Anne McDermott. I did Not like her Charming Billy book, but I did like her book about the married couple,..title escapes me. Not current.
Anita Shreve, liked Pilots Wife, and Sea Glass, and Light on Snow. Not crazy about some of her others.

I think it qualifies as entertainment and would probably die out as a standalone thread. So you prefer on-fiction, Sally. That's what they're pushing in school now.

On fiction, or non fiction
; ^)
Well I got sick of schools pushing fiction as if that's the only kind of reading you could do to teach you to read. Show me a teenage boy who enjoys Scarlet Letter. UGH.
Yes lately it seems I go non fiction. Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. by Rebecca Skloot.
Killing Kennedy by O'Reilly.
Bill Bryson is a favorite author . Walk in the Woods, Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild and Into Thin Air. ITA, now that's a gripping book, IMHO.
Mary Roach, Spook, Stiff, and Packing for Mars
Read 'NIght by Elie Wiesel, then did it audio with 15yo son.

The idea is that non-fiction better prepares them for the 'real world.' I am not sold on that. As an engineer, I see the premise. However, speaking for myself, I think fiction inspires the more creative, 'out of the box' thinking that is so important. I value them both and am glad I was exposed to both.

Life of Pi was a recent reading list book here that was very creative and interesting.
The Art of Racing in the Rain was excellent but so sad in parts.
I like fiction in foreign settings. Kite RUnner, THousand Splendid Suns,
Oh! "Cutting for Stone' by Abraham Verghese was EXCELLENT. I think equally good for male and female readers. I recommend that one.

Loved The Art of Racing in the Rain, Kite Runner, and A Thousand Splendid Suns!
I saw the movie but would still like to read Life of Pi...
Dean Koontz and Steven King are always good reads.
Water for Elephants was real good too.

I was strung along with Anitas series.Clever twist to set the tales in tha same local but stories at different times in history.By the time SandGlass came out it didnt have the intrigue the first few books did I thought.

I had no idea SeaGlass (sorry) was part of a series.! I thought Seaglass was very interesting and liked the historical aspect. It set four different sets of characters up in the first few chapters, unrelated, and later their lives became connected.

got Daniel Silva Fallen Angels off our sale shelf, and Michael Connelly's Crime Beat, (non fiction) in which this novelist talks about his first career as crime reporter, which helped form his fiction writing. Interesting.

I can't characterize what I like to read very well. I think I like humor since my work is sad. Best recent book is Where'd you go Bernadette? I thought the satire hit it out of the park in capturing the inrony of the socially mobile high tech communities. I used to read science fiction and fantasy, but I think the formulas are too predicable most of the time now. I've been watching the Poirot films on video and enjoying David Suchet.

Now I want something to read for when I'm sleepy from the meds I'm taking for a virus flare up. Everything hurts, including my attention.

Thanks, Ronnie. We went to Ironman III tonight. Trying to dull nerve pain changes one's choices. It was rather bombastic though I still had a good time, but the movie was overdone if you're not trying to blast off.

I am still laughing about DeNiro and also the conversation comparing their pills in Silver Linings Playbook, but it's an occupational hazard because I commit five or six people into involuntary detox every week. My kids went to Seven Psychopaths and walked out because of the violence. I didn't know it, and got the movie from the library. I was laughing at everything because I recognized the pathology involved but told in a funny way, which freaked them out. Another occupational hazard. There should be a sequel "30 more psychopaths."
