    The Danny Peary books? Those were seminal for me back in the day. The first one in particular was an eye opener for me as a budding young film buff.

    Those are the ones. A friend was getting rid of a bunch of books and those ones were in there as well.

    Oh, cool! Yeah, got a few other film books as well, one nice one about films from the 80's (including Robocop) with big glossy, coffee table-book pages.

    Pulp International is a great site. NSFW or otherwise, a daily visit has been keeping me sane at work for what feels like centuries at this point.

    Strange Relatives is so disturbing and awesome, haha.

    BW, that site is great, I check it daily too. In addition to the cool stuff they post, they have a wicked sense of humor.

    Finished Die Hard. It's a good read. That said all the changes from the book to the film were wise moves. Much better having MacClane be in his 30s and non descript rather than a hero in his 60s. You worry about the old guy breaking in half with all the damage he takes. The love story(?) with the stewardess on the outside was totally needless and, frankly, rather silly. But a good read.

    Onto 58 Minutes now or, as I prefer to call it, Die Hard 2. The cover actually has Die Hard 2 in bold with 58 minutes in small print underneath.

    I read Die Hard in grade 10, it was awesome.
