It all starts with a little murder...


"If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think very little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath breaking, and from that to the incivility and procrastination. Once begin upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time."

Morgan Spurlock has a new documentary called Mansome. It's a comedic look at male identity and I have to say the trailer is hilarious.

It features interviews with Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, John Waters, Isaiah Mustafa and many others.

So, are you mansome?

Book Review: Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami


Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
Rating: 5/5 --- I LOVED THIS BOOK!

Sometimes you can read a book at the right moment in your life and it connects with you. You understand it so well and identify with it. Other times you read a book and you are bored, you find it silly and not worthy of your time. With Sputnik Sweetheart I think I read this book at the right moment. I thoroughly enjoyed this tale and sometimes found myself identifying with random musings of the narrator and ideas and actions of the protagonist Sumire (note the use of the adverb “sometimes”).

The narrator tells the story of his best friend and unrequited love, Sumire. Sumire is, in my opinion, a lost soul, who goes around to the beat of her own drummer with her goal to become a novelist. One day she meets Miu, a woman 17 years her senior. This is Sumire's first love and she's in it deep, and as many first loves goes, she looses a bit of herself in this passion.

This novel touches upon a love story of first love, unrequited love, loneliness, friendship and much more. Overall the novel is pretty fasted paced and moves along. There was a moment towards the end where I couldn't figure out why the author put the scene in (spoiler: the supermarket...if you read it, you know what I mean, seriously, why is that there and so long?) but overall, it was great. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from Haruki Murakami.
