If you're looking for the funniest stuff, I suggest starting with the Steve, Don't Eat It Homage and then the travel category. You're on your own with the older posts that have yet to be categorized.

Just Leave the Box

Watched Sin City this weekend. Never read the "graphic novel" (which sounds suspiciously like a comic book). Still, quite liked the movie. Won't ruin it for you if you haven't seen it.

Also finished watching The Life of Birds series. Fantastic. I'd especially recommend this to those people who think that only an omniscient being could have come up with all the complexity around us. For example, the divine inspiration for a pair of birds that after hatching 8 or so chicks, kills them one by one until only a couple survive and are raised.

Lastly, break out the tissues (don't even think what you are thinking, you perv). I finished the Band of Brothers series which focuses on E (Easy in military speak) company of the 101st Airborne during WWII. What these guys went through is incomprehensible. I could not recommend this series more heartily. And you'll need tissues...a whole box would be wise.

re: Sin City. So, what'd you think of the level of male crotch violence in the movie?

re: Band of Brothers. Chris watched it about a year ago. Bought the DVD set. I decided, fine, I'll watch it and LOVED IT. Definitely a box of tissues. While Mess stayed with us, we made him watch it.

cf - re: crotch violence. I think it was overshadowed by the overall level of sadistic violence. Without the stylized nature of the film, I think it all would have been far too much.
