Dirty Amish Chipmunks


Dirty Wars by Jeremy Scahill.  Documentary on the greater war on terror.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: the squeakquel starring [voices].  Replacing a broken disc.


Cavendon Hall by Barbara Taylor Bradford.  "Epic saga of intrigue and mystique set in Edwardian England."  Saga?  When I hear saga I think of Iceland.

And the Dark Sacred Night by Julia Glass.  Flyleaf says: Richly detailed novel about the quest for an unknown father.

I've Got You Under My Skin by Mary Higgins Clark.  Clark writes another novel that many people will purchase.

Frog Music by Emma Donoghue.  According to the flyleaf Donoghue has red hair and lives in Canada.  Canada is pretty big.  Good luck hunting her down to sign your personal copy.

The Last Bride by Beverly Lewis.  More Amish.  More romance.  More cover photos with a pretty girl wearing a hair cover.  You know, all these cover models wear make-up.  I presume the Amish don't truck with cosmetics.

Warriors by Ted Bell.  Looks like a shoot-em up spy thriller.  Let's see.  Or, let's not see.  You can be surprised.

Destroyer Angel by Nevada Barr.  "An Anna Pigeon Novel."  Hey, Los Amigos Invisibles just came on.

Musical Interlude

Los Amigos Invisibles or, as I call them, Peruvian Disco Music from Space.


The Oxford Companion to World Mythology by David Leeming.  Oxford was running a sale.  Page 236 says Laokoon told the Trojans not to let in the wooden horse.  The Trojans should have listened.  But, Poseidon sent a couple snakes to kill Laokoon and his children and the Trojans figured that was a sign to ignore Laokoon.
