ATLAS SHRUGGED III: WHO IS JOHN GALT? Review – *
I’ll settle for the film I desire, thanks very much. And this isn’t it. (Source)
When I read Atlas Shrugged, it seemed to me that it would make a pretty good film (I wanted to adapt it for the stage, but I’ll admit that’s pushing it–though, an opera…). And I still think it would make a good film. My feelings about Rand’s politics aside, I think at its core there’s a strong story that could…

#CoffeeshopReview 010: #Espresso con Panna at #HeadrushRoasters. Let me tell you, sweet whipped cream and espresso is a nice combo. The espresso itself—it’s strong. It’s acidic. It takes no prisoners. It gives…no fucks. #coffee

Red Rock Golden Ginger Ale Review
It’s been too long since I’ve done one of these reviews. Hopefully all the soda hasn’t gone flat yet. Today’s topic: another ginger ale! Golden, so it’s got that deeper, spicier flavor, like Vernors in its glory days. This is an old-time ale, too–dating back to 1885. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, and boasting “Just The Right Bite!”, it’s Red Rock!

Just finished reading #GoneGirl in preparation for seeing the film in a few weeks. It’s quite a good book, and I think David Fincher is a good fit for the film adaptation; it’s like the flipside of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which had a great story but (aside from Lisbeth) dicey characters. This has a story which stretches credulity at times (things go a little too perfectly for a certain someone), but the characters are marvelously drawn. #AmazingAmy is a fearsomely resourceful protagonist, a feminist’s dream and the specter of every misogynist’s nightmares. I can’t wait to see what #RosamundPike does with the role. And Nick Dunne is a spot-on portrait of male psychology in this day and age, grappling with the misogynistic past (personified by his vile father) and his own transgressions while trying to prove his innocence as the evidence presses down on him. And I can’t imagine anyone but #BenAffleck in the role. #GillianFlynn did a hell of a job here, capturing the nature of modern crime-news media and in North Carthage creating a great microcosm of the crumbling Midwest. But it’s her grasp of psychology that elevates it, makes these characters so uncomfortably real, and if the film can capture it…we’re in for something special.
