Hide all of the sharp, eye-pokey things in your house first. It's worth slogging through just so you can tell people why it's so awful. Or, make it through the first 200 pages and see if you can avoid stuffing it down the throat of the next Objectivist you meet.

This weekend I watched The Raid and A Prophet.

Those filmmakers in Subtitlistan are getting real good, yo.

I felt very let down by the lack of cartography. When I buy a book with the word Atlas in the title I expect it to give me some fucking maps, yo.

Taken 2

Ok action flick. My wife liked it, I thought it needed a lot more polish, or that it was a bum job writers/director didn't care about.

overall : meh.

Well, that sure says a whole lot about you.

Anyone who hasn't read it could just read Galt's 70-pages speech, I guess. It used to be available in full on galtse.cx but it's gone now it seems.

I think this is the full speech, but unironically posted it seems. Which is mad. 33,000 words.

1168 pages of horrible writing and worse opinions in total.

I saw Looper yesterday; enjoyed it. Little goofy on the time travel explanations, but whatever. Don't get how the woman on the farm knew about Loopers, tho. JGL did a pretty decent version of Willis.

Never got to go see Dredd, or End of Watch, or even Premium Rush because movies seem to be leaving theaters a lot faster lately.
