Another uneventful day draws to

Another uneventful day draws to a close. I performed a couple exciting tasks that included cleaning the bathroom and cleaning the kitchen. I also cashed my paycheck and picked up a few groceries. Holy shit, this is boring. I just finished watching platoon, which is a damned good movie and I can’t really explain why I hadn’t seen all of it yet. I had seen a few select clips from in in high school english, but that’s about it.

I watched The Untouchables on

I watched The Untouchables on television tonight. I hadn’t seen it before and thought that it was a decent movie. I found that it almost seemed short to me, they probably could have done more with it. I found the scene on the stairs in the train station, with the baby carriage, to be a tad on the over-dramatic side of things. I also finished reading Skinny Legs and All by Tom Robbons tonight. It took me a little while to get into it, but I found myself drawn to it as I got further in. I haven’t read anything else by the author, so I can’t really compare it with any of his other works. Parts of it are deffinitely abstract and make you think.

Stephen Ambrose, the author of

Stephen Ambrose, the author of a new world war ii history book aimed at kids, is lambasted in this article. It’s essentially pointing out inaccuracies in his coverage and his pro-American attitude. It’s kind of nice to see a protest against some of the excessive flag waiving that occurs in the US.

Another interesting read is an article written by a war correspondant shortly after world war ii. It was linked from within the previous article.
