Crawling out of the aether

Well the claws of my cold have finally dulled enough that I can think relatively straight, at least straight enough to put a few sentences together.

Not much reading or writing the last two days, but I did make it through a lot of movies. Both good and Bad. Dawn of the Dead (the new one), Matchstick Men, Rush Hour II, and Memories (a collection of three anime shorts). Dawn of the Dead, despite being a great horror movie, may not be the best thing to watch when you're feeling a little like the living dead yourself.

On the lit side of things, I started reading an issue of Black Clock, a mag out of California I've never heard of. It has a lot of heavy hitters like Mary Caponegro, Jonathan Lethem, Rick Moody, Aimee Bender. Also has a few interesting photographs. It looks very professioanal, but I'll pull a full review of it together after I finish.

I'll try to have more profound thoughts tomorrow, after all my thought processes return to normal.

Wow, Black Clock sounds really cool. I'm going to have to try to get my hands on a copy of that.

I liked the new version of Dawn of the Dead -- but I can definitely see how it might not be the best cure for being sick.

It is a great version. One of a few horror movies I've seen in awhile where I feel like it didn't hold any punches, but also didn't get into gratuitous gore (not that I have a problem with gore, but gore for gore's sake can get little hack).
