Pop Culture Roundup

Still working through Volf. That's nothing new. I'm still at a bit of a stalled point regarding non-theological books. I tried to start The Devil in the White City the other day. It's a piece of historical fiction about the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago. I got past the prologue. That was two days ago. It's written in kind of a noir style, which I like, so I'm not going to give up on it yet.

No new movies watched this week, but I've done a bit of TV watching. First, the season finale of Entourage was this past week. This show has made a good replacement for me while I wait for The Sopranos to pick back up. Speaking of, HBO has a comparison of a typical day between Turtle and Paulie. Enjoy.

As if that wasn't enough, I can now say that I have seen the entire first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and soon I can say the same about the second. My wife has them on DVD. We spent a good chunk of last Sunday watching one after another. I enjoy the light touch that Joss Whedon applied while writing it.

I've had The Wiseguys in my car for the past few days.

Around the web, Chris T. at Progressive Protestant is moving on to other ventures. Thanks again for some good reading, Chris. I look forward to reading the new site once it gets off the ground. Don't be a stranger.
