Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys (just finished, his best novel imo).

Also just got through Dexter season 4. That was one of the most arrowing experience of my life, in a very good way...

Playing a lot of this game.

Taking my girlfriend through all the 80s/90s action/sci-fi classics. We've done T1+2 and the first two Die Hards so far, and she's enjoying herself a lot more than I thought she would.

Rented Saw. (PS3) It's fun, I like the atmosphere, but it's not a game you will have fun for a long time. My suggestion is that you should play it, but not buy it.

Sherlock Holmes, Wii Sports Resort, gearing up for Avatar some time this week. Hopefully the crows will have eased.

That's the impression I got at eurogamer expo, A rent not buy type of game. It also seemed like the traps would get repetitive.

I could never finish any of his novels, but I might've been a bit young for them. Wanting to go back and try again, would you have any suggestions on starting with him, albeit starting for the second time?

The Idiot is his best, and although it takes some work because of it's sheer length, it is the easiest to understand from a narrative perspective. (of those I've read.)

Yeah, also the controls and the puzzles start to look alike, but people should consider playing it and the athmosphere of the game is very intense, you get the feeling that you're creeped out.

I've been keeping up on episodes of The Mighty Boosh on Adult Swim on Demand, and I've been reading Last Words, the biography about George Carlin recently released. It's really cool, seeing how he formed into the crazy guy I love.

I just watched the film "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK." Really fantastic.

I also finally got around to watching Watchmen. It wasn't a good film, but it's Watchmen. It was also fantastic.

Funny you should mention anderson, I watched Bottle Rocket and The Life Aquatic yesterday.

I've been really digging the Coens lately. Just watched Barton Fink, The Man Who Wasn't There, and Intolerable Cruelty. They're all fascinating works of brilliance.

Recently watched Ponyo. It was an escapist's dream.

Also watched both Marble Hornets and Let The Right One In yesterday. The latter's a masterpiece, but the former attributed more to my sleep deprivation.
