Pamela--18th century lass shows spunk in defense of her chastity, inspires both Austen and Bronte. Oh yes, I made it through this ancient-seeming, yet lively, behemoth of Christian values and a weird proto-feminism, and you shall have my full report on it forthwith.
"In Treatment"--Loved this season on HBO, though it was intense. Paul was on his game as a therapist, but he kept crossin' those boundaries and he had to pay the price to a certain extent. The acting, writing, plotting was top-notch as always, and I left with a little more hope than I had at the end of season 1. Hope there's a 3rd season.
Star Trek- I've never been a megafan of the show, though I've always enjoyed it, but as everyone says, the movie was lots of fun. The first action movie I've seen in ages that didn't try to be "dark" and meaningful, but to entertain with a dose of thought-provocation. Word.
Concerts: In the past few weeks I've seen Bruce Springsteen, Unwigged and Unplugged (the dudes from "Spinal Tap" and "A Mighty Wind"), and Grizzly Bear. One rocked insanely hard, (of course) one elicited chuckles and claps, one soothed and stirred... all were awesome.
Pro-choice insanity: between the Obama Notre Dame speech, Sotomayor, and the tragic assasination of Dr. Tiller, I've been reading and writing a TON about women's stuff. You can check it out on my google reader feed, or my freelance writer feed.
What culture have you been consuming, O readers fair?
