Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, this time on DVD.

Still good. Still a prolonged sadness yet still uplifting. Special Features reveal that Kate Winslet really sounds a lot like Daphne on Frasier.

I need to try and struggle through more than 15 minutes of that movie again. Jake is offended that I haven't.

First manga collection of Battle Royale

Wow. Jesus. Some Other Word Expressing Astonishment.

I wonder where my mental health is at exactly when I enjoy a book like this. For those who are unfamiliar with it, BR is set in an Orwell-was-a-puss dystopian nightmare of a Japan; hardcore police state. Once a year, a lottery picks a ninth-grade class, 42 students in all, who they then kidnap and take to a remote island.

Once there, they are given a bag of basic rations, a weapon, and are told to hunt each other down. They're each fitted with an explosive collar to help convince them (not to mention the armed guards and patrol boats surrounding the island), and if 24 hours goes by without a kill, everyone dies.

The killings in this are rendered in a gruesome amount of detail. One girl kills another by sticking a scythe in the side of her neck and then slowly drawing it all the way 'round, and you see it all.

Fairly merciless in the imagery dept./Will have to read more than one to see if there's an actual story to go along with it

Yeah, at the beginning, this guy flees into the woods with this girl he has sworn to protect until they find a way to beat the Program. Opening her bag up to scrounge for supplies, he finds she's been given a boomerang for a weapon.

Would this be Pachelbel's Canon? Because I've heard (and played) that damn thing in quite a few different keys.
