It's blowing you and me

A Mighty Wind was very good and very funny. Worth seeing. Most of the reviews I've read of it have been kind of misguided. I don't understand film critics sometimes.

I can't find my copy of "The Decline and Fall of the Third Reich", so I read "The Clash of Fundamentalisms" on the way to work today. I'm enjoying it so far; though it's easy to see that Tariq Ali comes from an artist's perspective and not a politician's, I'm not convinced this is a bad thing. The thing I want to know is, how the hell did I misplace a book that's 1400 pages long and weighs like 5 pounds? My apartment isn't that messy. Maybe it's in my automobile.
