    Books you've read in 2010

    I just finished "The Unincorporated Man" - it's an okay read. Simple in style and heavy on exposition - lots of monologues just like in Inception! :P   Now I'm starting Peter F. Hamilton's Evolutionary Void - 3rd book in the trilogy that just came out. A huge sprawling space opera that is...

    Books you've read in 2010

    I finished reading the Takeshi Kovacs "trilogy" (Altered Carbon, Broken Angels, Woken Furies) by Richard Morgan. Kind of like film-noir SF. Not bad! The science wasn't the best but the writing is pretty gnarly and entertaining! Now I'm reading "The Incorporated Man" - another SF novel, where...

    Things I've noticed about HTF since returning.

    Contact coming in October!

    Let's hope this version is at least as good as the Sky-HD h264 1080p broadcast from last year. Even if the video isn't as good, the audio should be stellar!

    got a green light on the mancave!

    Wow that's a big budget. Consider using black velvet cloth around the walls and ceiling to limit light reflections from the screen?

    Books you've read in 2009

    Peter F. Hamilton's The Temporal Void. Pretty good continuation of the Commonwealth series. Charlaine Harris' Dead Before Dark (Sookie Stackhouse). Not very exciting, but I do hope to catch the True Blood TV series soon.

    Testy Area 51

    That princess in DragonSlayer was pretty hot! But I wonder - the baby dragon feeding might have pointed me towards cannibalistic hentai in my later years! It warped my little mind.

    Blu-ray Review HTF Blu-ray Review: Star Trek: The Original Series Season One (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

    Testy Area 51

    Hand puppet ending? That'd be awesome! What, you haven't drunk the Blu kool-aid? OMG Steve! Get your catwoman to punish you! Or am I confusing you with someone else? Hmmm. It's been a while... Oh and I like the Wallace and Gromit tie-in... you should be a Warner exec!

    Maybe Warner delayed the Contact Blu-ray so they could work on the epic battle with F18s taking on giant alien motherships! Either that, or Warner is working extra hard on their new DNR encoders to make Contact look like a claymation movie!
