Haywire; enjoyable, gratuitous violence on a furloughed afternoon. I did like Gina Carano and she had an awesome cast for such a popcorn flick--Fassenberg, Douglass, Bandaras, C. Tatum (!), and Ewan MacGregor. And now that her name is being tossed around as the next Wonder Woman, I'm more intrigued.
Love is a Mix Tape, by Rob Sheffield. An ode to his first marriage, becoming a widow, and the role of music in the beginning, middle and end of his relationship.
You can't trade Wade, very true. But. . . .
Cool. I'll check it out
Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, by Sean Howe. For the comic geeks of a certain age, you have to read it. I'm about 2/3 through it and to read how childish the staff was and how much dope they were smoking in the 70s. Stan Lee comes off as part carnival barker, part inattentive dad, part creative genius, and narcissistic.
Love the show. Caught up with it on HBO On Demand. JLD is so inappropriate as a mix of Palin, W, and Bachmann. Dan and Amy as the twin troubleshooters/troublemakers, and Gary the slug. Love it.

Season don't matter for vegetable/fruit cultivation, the world needs 3+ million chickens a day, and how corn rules the world. Helps you understand why the organic and locally produced markets have grown so much lately.
True story: I waited tables during college in Georgetown back in the late 80s. Dantley came in for lunch. Me and another hoops can chose to buy his lunch, because we were such big fans. He left the waiter $2 on a $30 tab, then walked down to his Silver Shadow II and rolled out. Did we feel like fools and were we really disappointed.
The Kemp dunks were otherworldly. +1 on the assessment of his skills. But eventually, he ate himself out of the league
