Just something to prepare me for Skyfall...


Have you read Live and Let Die? It's an awesome book, much better than Casino Royale, if you can tolerate Fleming's racism. It's so awesome that they pilfered it for three different films (Live and Let Die, For Your Eyes Only, and Licence to Kill).

Anyway, on to my current reading...

I am currently reading 1984, by George Orwell. It's one of those books that could give you nightmares, but it's really good.

A Tacitus double feature: Agricola and Germany....

Agricola 30 wrote:
We, the most distant dwellers upon earth, the last of the free, have been shielded till today by our very remoteness and by the obscurity in which it has shrouded our name. Now, the farthest bounds of Britain lie open to our enemies; and what men know nothing about they always assume to be a valuable prize. But there are no more nations beyond us; nothing is there but waves and rocks, and the Romans more deadly still than these – for in them is an arrogance which no submission or good behaviour can escape. Pillagers of the world, they have exhausted the land by their indiscriminate plunder, and now they ransack the sea. A rich enemy excites their cupidity; poor one, their lust for power. East and West alike have failed to satisfy them. They are the only people on earth to whose covetousness both riches and poverty are equally tempting. To robbery, butchery, and rapine, they give the lying name of “government”; they create a desolation and call it peace.

~Calgacus to the men of Caledonia


GOOD STUFF! :D
