Guesses At What I Missed While I Was Deathly Ill, Battling Against A Vicious Bacterial Invasionn


Leatherheads starring George Clooney. Clooney plays tackle football in Northern Minnesota.

Bush's War. A Frontline documentary. Four-and-a-half hours of Frontline's coverage of six years worth of year. Policy changes, mistakes, misperceptions, and political battles.

Torchwood: the complete second season. My wife watches this show. Something about a bi-sexual space captain who battles aliens with the help of Dr. Who.

Baby Mama starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. A career woman hires a surrogate to carry her child. The surrogate turns out to be an idiot from Philadelphia.

Heroes: Season Two. Season two of the television version of X-Men. Oops.

Redbelt starring the great Joe Mantegna and Ricky Jay, written and directed by David Mamet. A Jiu-Jitsu master who has always focused on his self-defense studio becomes a prizefighter to pay off massive debts.
Since this is a Mamet picture the cast includes Rebecca Pigeon and Ricky Jay. I do not often watch DVD extras but for Mamet's Spartan I listened to the voiceover by Val Kilmer. Kilmer made much fun of Mamet.

Street Kings starring Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Laurie. LAPD officer is implicated in murder of fellow officer. Hugh Laurie plays a hard-ass. I'd like to see this, too bad it is checked-out.

In Bruges starring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes. Dark comedy with two hired killers stuck in small town Belgium trying to lay low.

Office: season four starring [people].

Starship Troopers 3: marauder starring Casper van Dien, Jolene Blalock, Amanda Donohue. Did you know there was a Starship Troopers 2? It was awful. This one brings back the creator and lead actor from the 1997 picture.


A Piece of What You Need by Teddy Thompson. I like this guy's stuff. Give a listen. If you do as well check out his other two albums Separate Ways and Upfront & Down Low.

Forgiven by Los Lonely Boys. Texas styled guitar rock.

Costello Music by The Fratellis. I do not know. Investigate.

I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too by Martha Wainwright. The woman is a genius.
