A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!


« on: January 03, 2019, 12:09:51 AM »

Last year I read 60 books, my biggest total in a while.
Many of those were my beloved comics collections, but I did read about 30 biographies/novels/history books.
So let's see if I can build on that this year . . .

JANUARY 2019

THE EMPEROR AND THE APOSTLE* by Lewis Smith (me)  - Unpublished (as yet) novel I finished in August, and just re-read in its entirety before sending it off.  Dang, I'm good!!)
THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII by Alison Weir
THE FUZZY BUNCH by Darby Conley*

FEBRUARY 2019

ALEXANDER HAMILTON by Donald Charnow
SCRUM BUMS by Darby Conley*
MANHUNT: THE 12 DAY SEARCH FOR LINCOLN'S KILLER by James Swanson
FOX TROT SUNDAES by Bill Amend

MARCH 2019

ALEXANDER OF MACEDON, 356-323 BC: A Historical Biography by Peter Green
BC: IT'S A FUNNY WORLD by Tom Hart

In 2109, I'll be 142: I don't think I'll have any eyes left by then.  Wink

Hopefully by then, the South African cricket team will have won a tournament, the Olympics will have been held here and so on  Wink

The only - and I mean only - SA sports team that's never let me down is our national Paralympic team. Those men and women return from the Olympics with arms full of medals and they don't let their so-called disabilities get in the way of winning. They make me very, very proud.  Cheers

The core rulebooks for 3.5 ed D&D, as well as the Arms & Equipment Guide. I have the funny feeling I'll be checking them a lot this year.

Late last year, I started on Dean Koonz's Frankenstein series and am currently on the second volume. I got Brandon Sanderson's Reckoners Trilogy for Christmas, so I'll be taking a crack at it in the near future. The Psychotronic Video Guide is something I've been using for bedtime reading, since the short entries make it easy to put down when I get too tired to read. And I've been sporadically working my way through Tom Holland's translation of Herodotus.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
