New Year’s Resolutions

In keeping with last year’s resolution to begin enjoying olives (which I accomplished!), this year, I’m planning to learn which olives I like, rather than just blindly trying them all. Also, Kelly and I have started that hundred pushups challenge, since we are both upper-body weaklings.

My three other resolutions: prune my RSS feeds down to about 200, collect everyone’s correct contact information, and keep track of all the books I read and movies I watch. As for the last one, here’s the list so far:

The Zenith Angle by Bruce Sterling.
If… (Lindsay Anderson, 1968)
The Luzhin Defence (Marlene Gorris, 2000)
Bobby (Emilio Estevez) Sucked!
Generation Kill (the 2008 Simon/Burns HBO Series)

    1. I thought generation kill was terrific… Kelly didn’t get to into it, but it though it was about the closest thing I’ve ever seen to the Wire. It’s big and complicated and shocking, but not in any of the ways you’d suspect. Just don’t watch the bonus features!

      I heard Terry Gross complain that it was hard to tell the characters and the humvees apart, but I had no such trouble… the personalities are so different.
