Doug's Acting Debut

For those of you who have not seen it yet, here is a short clip of data in a World War II short:

It looks pretty cool for a senior project. I must say that Doug looks like he has the chops for acting. It looked like he had fun at the very least.

Dark Wraith of Shannara - Review

I just finished Terry Brooks' first graphic novel and I must say that I am impressed. I have not been interested in this genre before, but now I think I have been won over. It was a fast read with great pictures. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the graphic novels or may have interest in them. This is too short to be on our book club list, but I do suggest that the book club reads this book. It is an amazing short story with pictures that captured the characters personality perfectly. If you loved The Wishsong of Shannara, then you will love this story about Jair Ohmsford. Take time to read it...you could probably go to Barnes and Noble to read it.

Battlestar Galactica Final Season

The final season of Battlestar is under way and already they have had a cliff hanger ending. The season is starting in a fashion that promises and excellent ending to a stellar series. Remember to watch it every Friday at 8 pm MST or at 10 pm MST. If anyone has missed the first episode, I have it saved on my DVR.

Wizard's First Rule

Well, it has been decided...the book for April, and possibly May, is Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind. It is a long book, but it does keep your interest. This begins the long road through 11 novels in the series. I think that we will not read the back to back, but over time we will likely get through them all.

This fall ABC will be airing an entire season (22 episodes) for Wizard's First Rule...directed by Sam Raimi from Spider-Man. I personally cannot wait. It will be nice to have something after the last season of Battlestar Galactica is over this year. Next month we will take another vote on what book to read if we are done with this one. Hopefully this will broden everyone's horizons and help them appreciate different authors.
