The Lay of the Land

Books. Films. Music. A smattering of politics. Gossip. Grammar (sometimes). Morals. Fashion. Visual art, especially photography. Cartoons, comics, and witticisms. These are what I bring to the table, and what I want you to bring to the table too. I'll make comments and recommendations, and you counter with yours.

And let's add recipes to the list. I like cooking and baking. I'll post the occasional recipe, and feel free to send me your own.

This cherry-popping entry will be short and only include a couple of lists. Commentary will have to wait until daylight, as will any thoughts of Angelina Jolie's latest dress, Margaret Atwood's polar bear dip, and Jay-Z's rhymes.

Reading - Annie Leibovitz At Work (photography retrospective), Ursula K. LeGuin The Left Hand of Darkness (science-fiction), Helen Garner The Spare Room (fiction)
Listening to - Prospekt's March EP by Coldplay

On standby:
Books - George R.R. Martin A Storm of Swords
Films - Raising Arizona, Gran Torino, Serenity

Work and school are keeping me busy, but I'll get through this short list as quick as I can. Stay tuned for updates, personal insights, and links to more spectacular blogs than mine.
