I've been soaking in a lot of music, movies, and books in the past few weeks, so I can't possibly begin to review them all, but I thought it might be fun to try to boil each one down to a few adjectives.
Thin Ice: Unlocking the Secrets of Climate in the World's Highest Mountains (Mark Bowen): accessible, comprehensive, engaging, long
Mountaineering Essays (John Muir): inspiring, historical, picturesque
In a Sunburned Country (Bill Bryson): unerring, funny, evocative
West Wing Season 1: engrossing, frustrating, well-written, addictive
Lord of War: sobering
Idiocracy: indescribable, crass, dystopian, recommended
A Scanner Darkly: daring, dystopian, disappointing
Extraordinary Machine - Fiona Apple: worthy, engrossing, substantive
Guess this is just another way of saying that there's no baby in my life yet. That and I'm seemingly utterly incapable of doing any decent work or blogging.
