movies. since ryan wants to know what movies i've seen, this one's for him. on friday a bunch of us went to see walk the line. i thought it was great. so much was said without being said, and all the people were real, believeable. i'd recommend it whether you are a johnny cash fan or not. last night a. and i rented miller's crossing, a cohen brothers' film. again, the writing in this was top notch. i felt this was a great sort of blend between the gangster/mafia genre and film noir. if you're looking for a good rental, this shouldn't let you down. just be ready, the characters are many and the wit is quick.

and i really thought the bear on the unicycle was cool.

whisky. so, sam, my flatmate from edinburgh, has organized the purchase of a cask of whisky. the isle of arran distillery is selling casks, and once i send in my money, i'll be a proud shareholder of a true sherry casked, single malt whisky.

it's rather exciting to think that i'll have my own stash of single malt, with my own label. of course, this won't be for 10 years at the earliest, but that should make it all the better. hopefully i'll be able to go visit at the ten year anniversary for a tasting (and a small reunion).

i saw good night and good luck last night with a. i would recommend it. i didn't know much about broadcast journalism of the 50s, but i thought clooney did a great job with the movie. in fact, he earned my respect.
in case there are any guys that are looking for a house and a bride.
