    Man, I wanna like the prequels so bad. The story is there... it's the most interesting arc of the three trilogies. It's just really badly told cos George Lucas is a shitty director. (But yeah, RoS was a huge letdown.)

    Uh lesse... on topic:
    Still reading The Master and Margarita. Haven't read much. On deck next is Dept of Speculation by Jenny Offill.
    TV wise, finished Perpetual Grace LTD (and would strongly recommend). Not sure what leap to take next but Oz is on Prime, so might give that a try. Who knows.
    In movies, seen some weird ones lately. The Tin Drum (1979), Malpertuis (1971), The Lair of the White Worm (1988). Actually kinda want to go down a Ken Russell hole after that last one.

        Can't decide if I want to read the books or watch the series.

          Hah, The Tin Drum, good movie.

          The prequels, yeah....the story IS there but Lucas just sucked. Which I hate to say. Some good entertaining action sequences, though, which helps. Aside from the major cheese factors with the romance scenes, I actually liked a lot of Attack of the Clones.

            TV: The end of the f*cking world. It's alright- over the years I find myself more and more drawn to shows that are shallow and require minimal emotional investment. Something I can only be giving 60% of my attention and still generally follow the plot.
            Book: Under the volcano by malcolm lowry. Difficult and feels directionless at times, but very good.

                Sounds like something I might be into.

                      I'm with you on Mad Men. Re-watching it is my go-to if I'm gonna turn on the tv in bed to buzz out before I go to sleep.

                        I remember watching some of that as a kid. Never got super in to it but maybe someday. I love going back and watching old stuff, just to put myself in the mindset of another era.

                          Just exposed my wife to Breaking Bad and she's asking me how she missed it all these years. She's addicted to it. I am pleased.

                              Niiiiiice. Definitely a good program to binge watch. I was thinking of rewatching it again awhile back, but it's a pretty dark and intense show. Not sure I wanna go down that rabbit hole again haha

                                It's October, so we're pretty committed to watching as many horror movies as possible. I was shooting for 31, but we'll exceed that at the rate we're going. Got a huge boost by the Friday the 13th Blu Ray collection that came out this month; the wife and I have consumed the entirety of the series in a matter of days. Well, she did sort of intentionally skip out on everything after Part VIII, but I'm finishing up Jason X this morning. It's pretty shitty, but I enjoy it.
