I thought that was a brilliant film.
Did he also write All the Pretty Horses?

Don't think I'll see the movie (The Road) even if Viggo's in it, too grim
I want to see either the Men Who Stared at Goats how can you lose with George Clooney and Ewan McGregor
or Pirate Radio which is supposed to be very funny and have lots of great rock music in it

Yep the boat what rocked at midnight
going a little off topic sorry this all I will write about it
The Boat That Rocked (2009)
"The Boat That Rocked" is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the '60s and pop music.
It's about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz.
The Count, a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Quentin, the boss of Radio Rock -
a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea that's populated by an eclectic crew of rock and roll DJs; Gavin, the greatest DJ in Britain who has just returned from his drug tour of America to reclaim his rightful position;
Dave, an ironic, intelligent and cruelly funny co-broadcaster; and a fearsome British government official out for blood against the drug takers and lawbreakers of a once-great nation. Written by Production office
It Rocked Indeed., 24 August 2009
Author: (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Canada
I have to say, that this is by far the most inspirational film I've seen to date. To feel the emotion, to care about the cause, to loath the oppression.
Just the idea, that few can make a difference in this dark, depressing situation. it gives hope, it gives emotion, it gives life, but only if you can truly see it for what it is. It was an incredible tale, with many aspects of human flaws, and human greatness.
We all have to believe we can make a difference, rather then blindly ignore the real problems. But if ignorance is your bliss, then sadly evolution as individual, is not
The Men who stared at goats is based on true events of a psychic unit in the CIA and Army intelligence
Stephen Kings "Under The Dome"
And next in the list is "Twilight" yes, I'm gonna do it!!!
Then I have several books about rituals that I want to read.
And a book about Native American children, a school during the Gold Rush,and hauntings at the site written by a guy I went to high school with.
I guess I better get busy reading and stop spending so much time working on surprises for my Lunatic friends in New York!!!!

Go for the twilight books YLD.
I have an eclectic taste in literature but I can't read crap. My (wonderful) sister-in-law is the same. We both loved the twilight series.

Not quite reading these ones yet - just ordered them:
Atlantis: Myth Or Reality - Atlantians were all very fine - but Lemurians were a higher quality and more into spiritual things - while the Atlantians were more into the science of things - which destroyed them in the end
Sirius Connection - about the ancient Egyptians connection to the Dog Star

My son and I have been re-reading the Collected Work of
Arthur Conan Doyle.
Such interesting Victorian prejudice.
But still a great read.

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
Come fill the cup and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly - and Lo! Bird is on the Wing
And look - a thousand Blossoms with the Day
Woke - and a thousand scatter'd into Clay
And his first Summer Month brings the Rose
Shall take Jamshyd and Kaikobad away

I had a vellum copy of that.
Not as good as Keats.
