The Catcher in the Rye

I’m a couple of years late in reading this I suppose, but better late than never. This book killed me, to say the least. I have to completely agree here with my friend’s reaction to the book. Personally the honesty of the thoughts in the book, almost makes me not feel alone with my thoughts. I’d recommend it to anyone.

BBC 1995 documentary- The career and life of Senna

I seem to be on a roll tumbling across wonderful things about people’s passions and their views of life to eventually learn of their passing. Sometimes knowing a story doesn’t quite complete the chance to be moved until you watch the emotions of another person, who are closely affected by it, commemorating their life. This was one of the saddest moving documentaries I’ve seen in recent times. P.S. This might be viewable only in the UK.

Douglas Adams: Parrots the Universe and Everything

This was my first discovery of his talks and it was fantastic. I’m glad not to have missed this.
