Shoot. You guys saw this, right? Retraction from This American Life because Daisey fabricated part of the story. www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/460/retra...
Another terrific big-budget hollywood musical that took home an Oscar for best picture. They made a real plot out of the fuzzy story in the Kander and Ebb musical and Catherine Zeta Jones performs her heart out. Richard Gere is also super slick. Such a great movie.
Ohh, this book is sooooo good. I have read a lot of interesting non-fiction research-type books, but I think this is the first time I could describe one as "gripping." McDougall weaves a suspenseful adventure tale through fascinating research explaining why we all can and should run, and why the popularity of "no pain no gain" exercise attitudes have perverted our evolutionary destiny.
Don't miss this if you have a chance. It's like theater for the html era: there is action happening in multiple rooms and you can pick and chose what character to follow as the characters all interact, break off, go to other parts of the "hotel" and interact with other characters. I want to go again.
