I feel a bit like a vulture tonight…
…but not that much like one.
I bought a bunch of stuff at my local Borders this evening.
I got 3 books and 2 DVDs for $25.
I’ve been meaning to read Old Man’s War by John Scalzi for a while now, so it was nice to find it still in stock. Columbine by Dave Cullen is supposed to be fascinating. I’m also intrigued by Slavoj Zizek’s take on the nature of violence in his book of the same name.
I’ve seen both of the movies I bought already, but I just couldn’t pass up the deal. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is a wonderfully quiet western. Not a lot of gun play, but I think that adds to this film more than it takes away from it. And Miller’s Crossing is a great modern noir – one of my favorites by the Coen brothers.
All in all, I think I made out pretty good. Sorry Borders, your loss is my gain… this time anyway.
