At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

Friday Scrabble in the library is becoming a tradition. (Actually we played Literati on Yahoo, but same difference.) I came in second to last place this time. Maybe I need to read a few sections of the OED this weekend.

The latest Miyazaki finally made it to west Texas--not in Lubbock, but in more distant Amarillo. But since the liquor is cheaper up there, the trip will be worth it. Plus I can try the new sushi place I've heard about.

Latest viewing: Immortal: Ad Vitam--drawing comparisons with an earlier anglophone French sci-fi flick, The Fifth Element, would be too easy, the borrowings are so numerous. Suffice it to say that while this one has better visuals, its story is not nearly so entertaining. Cold and amoral.

Today's iTunes download: Steely Dan, "FM"

I added a list of albums I own, with ratings. Not that I think it's a particularly impressive collection--a grad school roommate once amassed this many in a single semester by joining BMG under all his friends' names--but perhaps I'll find readers who have similar tastes.
