Salon has a reasonable approximation of my take on the latest Bond. Which, as a good Male Consumer, I saw last night.
Before the film, we killed time at Barnes&Noble. I ran into one of my favorite professors (I took 3 classes with her) and her daughter; she's back after a year in Berlin; always fun to be remembered and recognized by someone of stature in a field you are interested in.
At B&N I also read a car magazine article on the Bond car: because it needed to be used for the killer chase scene on ice, the carprop guy ripped out the AM's V12 and put in a four-wheel drive system and a more race-inspired V8. The scene is pretty cool -- Rally Iceland, with powerslides (and rockets...)!
ommkarja flies in tonight.
