For an early birthday present I got The Big Bang Theory The Definitive Inside Story Of The Epic Hit Series. I always have mixed feelings about reading tell-all behind the scenes reveals that break the illusion, and this has been more of an offender than most. I am still enjoying it though and have learned some amusing things , but it is also confirming something I have suspected, that Jim Parsons is an arsehole.

Horror Stories by Liz Phair. Part autobiography, part confession, part self-analysis, my beloved Miz Liz doesn't have her finest outing here. For every lovely moment in which she shows kindness to an old man ashamed at falling down at a public event, Phair has a gross anecdote she was better off not revealing. My three favorite stories from her life told of in this book were her recalling climbing a tall tree with her brother as a child, and him rescuing her from spiders, and her telling of experiencing New York City during a crippling blackout and an equally dangerous blizzard. There were a few chapters in the book I didn't know what to make of, especially Liz Phair's lurid confessions of encountering literal demons and the devil himself during a period of ongoing adultery she engaged in while living in an apparently haunted townhouse in Chicago. Phair's accounts of psychic premonitions and her awareness that her life is filled with omens she struggles to identify and heed but often misses until after the fact left me not quite sure if she was being entirely literal or more metaphorical. It's not a feel good book but then again Phair warned us in her title, didn't she? I'd give her plunge into self-revelation a B-. Only read it if you like Liz Phair, or love morbid over-sharing from the depths of the extremely unusual.

    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.
