The List: Vol. 2

Not just any list...The List. Here's some stuff worth checking out:

TV: Real Time with Bill Maher - So, you still don't have HBO? Get on it, dummy. I hate to admit it, but I get, like, 50% of my news from Bill. He tries to be even-handed, but really he's a crazy liberal just like me. Thank God.

Music: Acid Tongue by Jenny Lewis - The Rilo Kiley front woman has a new solo album and it's totally rad. Spanning genres and time periods, Jenny rocks a little harder and pays quasi-homage to Barbara Streisand with an 8 minute medley. That's my kinda of gal.

Book: Generation Kill - The brilliant mini-series on HBO wasn't enough...I had to check out the source material by Evan Wright, a reporter embedded with Recon Marines during the invasion of Iraq. The Marines are so amazing. You couldn't create characters this interesting or hilarious.

Sports Team: Tampa Bay Rays - Not to beat a dead horse, but you basically have until Friday to choose between good and evil. I have faith in you all to do the right thing (well, except for Liz and Jon. They've already made their choice to get behind the new Yankees. Though, I guess they get a pass for actually being from the Boston area. The rest of you, no pass).

I realized I haven't seen any movies recently to add to The List. Lost is consuming my Netflix and friends are consuming my free time (how dare they!). Don't worry. I'll see something this weekend and tell you all about it. Try and make it until then.

Jenny's a Babs fan? The girl never ceases to amaze.

This Jenny Lewis is getting major play on the blogs that I read. I hereby declare her hot.

I still can't afford HBO, so I'll count on you to painstakingly recap everything that happens on it.

And as a former Bostonian, I'm afraid I'm not on your side on this one. But you can tell me how wrong I am over the cheers of yet another victorious Boston crowd.

I haven't seen any movies in the theater worth listing, but The Visitor came out on DVD this week and that is one of the three best movies I've seen so far this year.

Glad you're enjoying GenKill. It's a great read.

Saw Choke last night, and that's worth listing
