Never heard of that author - is he good?

I love the picture of Jan Brady . . . Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.

I'm sure that Mr. Perry is very grateful as you don't go the library.

I wasn't crazy about Lord of War, although it was enlightening in some ways. The others I'm not too familiar with, but Yojimbo is one I've been meaning to pick up.

I saw your comment on Broken Flowers, and I agree that Murray is no babe magnet! It was an indy film, and I guess you are right that you have to decide for yourself, and the discussion is open at the end, and that is the flavor of it. Still it was a little unsatisfying.

Jason - I bought them used from Alibris, so I'm not sure I made him all that happy. I made my friend TAS from SF happy though as they are her employer.

Scott - I liked Lord of War better than I had expected. It really pays to have low expectations. Definitely pick up Yojimbo! And keep your eyes on the Samurai as his facial expressions are hilarious! Yes, I think that's why indie films aren't so popular in the States, we like to have everything tied up in a pretty bow at the end with all questions answered. I have to say that I like it both ways - questions remaining sometimes, but questions answered others.

I noticed the Babylon 5 discs there - an excellent choice, although the first season is a little hit and miss.

I hope you enjoy it.

(Yes, I have all five seasons on DVD, so I did. Heh.)

Yesterday, I found Perry's "Vanishing Act" and "Death Benefits" in the local second-hand bookstore (paperback versions). Naturally, I was hoping to defy the odds and find "Island," but that was not meant to be.
