There’s a reason why my To Read stack doesn’t go down. I order from Amazon faster than I can read.

Just got in the mail today:
Generation Kill. I don’t have HBO so I won’t watch the miniseries for some time but I think I’m going to start this one today.

Killing Pablo: The Hunt for the World’s Greatest OutlawI’m in the mood for some nonfiction.

Casino Royale (James Bond Novels) I’ve never read a Bond book and thought I’d give it a try.

The Greek Myths: Complete Edition Been feeling like rereading some classical mythology.

And that damn video I posted of Space Mountain got me to order RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. ( I have Roller Coaster Tycoon which I loved so I thought I would get the RCT3)

And on top of that I just finished The Big Sleep and I’m hankering for some more Marlowe mysteries which will inevitably lead to the Sam Spade books.

Rush Plays Rock Band Backstage at Colbert

The video of the day.

So, when Rush was backstage at The Colbert Report last week, they played “Tom Sawyer” on Rock Band and now there’s video of it. I kind of expected it to be a funny demonstration of how unlike playing real instruments Rock Band really is, with these three seasoned pros failing the song about 30 seconds in. But as it turns out, they did pretty well, which is either a testament to Rock Band’s accuracy, Rush’s gaming skillz or my inability to correctly anticipate the outcome of web videos.

Well, they didn’t do that well getting only 31%.
