Entertained To Death

What with the trip to Memphis, all that was Father's Day weekend, and the new freelance work I've picked up combined with all the regular up's/down's of life....I've been stock piling a pretty good stack of entertainment just in case I ever decide to slow down.

My DVR is packed with such movies as:
  • Blades Of Glory
  • Disney's The Kid (love Bruce Willis!)
  • The 300
  • Hot Fuzz
  • Ocean's Thirteen
  • Batman Vs. Dracula
  • The Game Plan
  • The Good Year

This is just the movies! Mixed in are episodes of:

  • House
  • Law & Order: SVU (5 Episodes!)
  • The Spectacular Spiderman
  • Greensboro (Awesome new show)
  • Extreme Home Makeover(100th episode!)
  • Plus the usual assortment of kiddy shows like The Wonder Pets, Backyardigans, Max & Ruby, etc...

Then there are the books that I keep picking up and taking home to collect dust:

  • Brother Odd (Dean Koontz)
  • Freak-O-Nomics
  • The Husband (Dean Koontz)
  • Peace Like A River
  • Boomsday (The story of a blogger who convinces Washington that they can save a ga-billion dollars by giving incentives to Baby Boomers in return for commiting suicide at the age of 75)
  • One Mississippi
  • The Historian
  • Plus an entire bookcase of paperbacks I was given late last year and the Entertainment Weekly I go running to the mailbox for every Friday

All of this and 60 free music downloads that Lucy and I have received recently. For some reason I just can't say no to a good piece of Pop Culture and so at the moment I find myself drowning in a sea fun. Maybe you can help ole faithful reader. If you see something I listed above that totally stinks, drop me a line so I can scratch it off my To-Do-When-There's-Nothing-To-Do-List.

I am so glad to know that I am not the only one with a backlog of unread books...


As far as recommendations on your list.. I am a HUGE vampire fan (classic gothic vampires). I have a one line review of The Historian HERE.

It's a long read, but a good read!

Batman vs Dracula sounds cool.
Blades of Glory is hilarious.
The summers are just too busy for everything.
