books

(no subject)

Finished two books yesterday.

First was the latest manga installment of Samurai Executioner, #5 Ten Fingers, One Life. I'm getting the feeling that some aspects of Japanese philosophy just aren't translating adequately.

Second was the Terry Pratchett add-on, called Where's My Cow?, which is a pretty amusing tale about taletelling. The art's not bad either.

During the last couple of days, I've wolfed down a few comic books as well. First was Lucifer #66, which didn't seem to include the namesake, and seems to have skipped the storyline that they've been dealing with for a while. Then, I found copies of the rest of a limited series, called Muktuk Wolfsbreath: Hard-Boiled Shaman, issues #2 & 3; these dealt with an Inuit shaman and his adventures in Siberia. Not a bad read at all.

We've been watching a few of the Firefly episodes, just to have some additional background for the opening of Serenity. I'm not sure that we'll be able to see it Friday; most likely we'll have to wait until Sunday, mostly due to the upcoming Dungeonmaster. Mirrormask is very doubtful, at least not this week; wouldn't be surprised if that one waits for DVD release.

I had to go the other night to see a lecture mandated by my boss on SPECT scans. The lecture turned into detailed discussion of how to get the best ones, highly technical, and intended for nuclear medicine techs. I could have used my time more productively.

While forestcats was out seeing Serenity Monday night, I was kicked back, seeing Blade II on DVD. Not a great picture, but lots of whiz-bang. Yawn.
