2015 Leonard Maltin Movie Review Book.

 I read somewhere that the 2015 edition will be the last: I don't know how true that is.

It's true (unless Maltin changes his mind).

"...written by Joseph Stefano, the guy who wrote 'Psycho,' only this time instead of being about a guy having trouble accepting the death of his Mama, it's a girl having trouble accepting the death of her Daddy. It happened 14 years ago, when she was seven, and ever since then she's wanted to stab men to death with a screwdriver whenever they try to get too close to her. Of course, I've encountered this 'killer screwdriver syndrome' with several women during my lifetime..."-Joe Bob on BLACKOUT

I was hoping to perhaps read what his thoughts were on Searching For Sugarman: perhaps it's included.

Elizabeth L. Cline's
Overdressed :
the Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion

High cost in terms of economics, environmentalism, and geographic exploitation. While centering on female fashions and the East Coast, there are still things worth reading in it.

Sarah Pinborough's
Mayhem :
the Thames Torso Killer

Who, apparently killed 1 person in Paris and 4 in London, between 1886 and 1889, One reason this serial killer is not better known, as it killed at the same time and in the same place as the more notorious Jack the Ripper.

2 graphic novels

[Marvel's] The Heroic Age

a dozen opening chapters from a dozen comic books +
25 brief bios, featuring both friend and foe, on the character got their start in comic books +

Downloaded a public domain translation of the Hindu epic "the Mahabharata." Since this is the longest poem ever written---3 times the length of the Old and New Testament together---I am not planning on finishing it anytime soon. I'll read a little here, a little there.

Hindu scripture is some of the best reading in the world. Arjuna's dialogues with Krishna are brilliant.

My reading spurts tend to come and go. Right now I'm reading the non-fiction The Eerie Silence by Paul Davies, a book on the search for extraterrestrial life. Musashi Miyamoto's Book of Five Rings. Daniel Dennett's Consciousness Explained, though that one will probably take awhile. The Feminist Papers by Alice s. Rossi, kind of old,but for a cheap pickup at a sale I thought it'd be worth a shot. And my two fictions Voltaire's Candide and Monster by A. Lee Martinez a book about a guy who runs a supernatural monster extermination service. I have a lot of other books that need reading, but those are the ones that capture the majority of my attention for now.

This machine is temporarily out of order.
