Devastating account of the evils of pro-Nazism.
Cryptonomicon - by Neal Stephenson
Brain candy for bitheads.
Lawrence Waterhouse, brilliant mathematician and cryptanalyst extraordinaire, and gung ho,
morphine-addicted marine Bobby Shaftoe, are part of Detachment 2702,
an Allied group trying to break Axis communication codes. Dr. Alan
Turing is also a member of 2702...
All of this secrecy resonates in the present-day story line, in which the grandchildren
of the WWII heroes - inimitable programming geek Randy Waterhouse and the lovely and
powerful Amy Shaftoe - team up to help create an offshore data haven in Southeast Asia and
maybe uncover some gold once destined for Nazi coffers. To top off the paranoiac tone of
the book, the mysterious Enoch Root, key member of Detachment 2702 and the Societas
Eruditorum, pops up with an unbreakable encryption scheme left over from WWII to
befuddle the 1990s protagonists with conspiratorial ties. A 900+

Crichton - Timeline
Not since Jurassic Park has Michael Crichton given us such a
magnificent adventure. Here, he combines a science of the future -- the emerging field of quantum technology -- with the complex realities of the medieval
past. Timeline opens on the threshold of the twenty-first century. It is a
world of exploding advances on the frontiers of technology. Information moves instantly
between two points, without wires or networks. Computers are built from single molecules.
Any moment of the past can be actualized -- and a group of historians can enter,
literally, life in fourteenth-century feudal France. This novel carries us into a realm of
unexpected suspense and danger, overturning our most basic ideas of what is possible.

About the Author
Michael Crichton was born in Chicago, in 1942. His novels
include The Andromeda Strain, The Great Train Robbery, Congo,
Jurassic Park, and Disclosure. He is also the creator of the
television series ER.
Blending the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his hallmarks with intricate
plotting, razor-sharp suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters, this is Clancy at his best - and there is none better.

- Recent Songs
Leonard Cohen continues to be one the greatest poets/philosophers in the
music industry today. If you are expecting a lot from Cohen, Recent
Songs is the album to buy. It's Cohen's "forgotten" album. Songs like
"The Gipsy Wife" or "The Guests" are simply fine works. "Un
Canadian Errant" and "Our Lady Of Solitude" are awsome pieces of poetry. Raffi Hakopian's violin twists and turns through some of the best
moments, and Luis Briseno's mariachi band lends the
concluding "Ballad Of An Absent Mare" both grace and humour.

IN THE RYE by J.D. Salinger
. But Cheever isn't merely some sort of anthropologist documenting the
customs of an obscure and vanishing tribe. Nostalgia and class issues aside, his true
subject is the darkness hidden beneath the surface of postwar American life.
- If on a
Winter's Night a Traveller
If on a
Winter's Night a Traveler is a marvel of ingenuity, an experimental text that
looks longingly back to the great age of narration--"when time no longer seemed
stopped and did not yet seem to have exploded." Italo Calvino's
novel is in one sense a tragedy, and a reflection on the difficulties of writing. In
another, it is a comedy in which the two protagonists, the Reader and the Other Reader,
ultimately end up married, having almost finished If on a Winter's Night a Traveler.
Chesterton - The Man Who Was
Thursday Chesterton called The Man Who Was
Thursday "a very melodramatic sort of moonshine." Set in a
phantasmagoric London where policemen are poets and anarchists camouflage
themselves as, well, anarchists, his 1907 novel offers up one highly colored enigma after
another. If that weren't enough, the author also throws in an elephant chase and a
hot-air-balloon pursuit in which the pursuers suffer from "the persistent refusal of
the balloon to..."

** Chaos: Making
a New Science by James Gleick
The Author argues correctly that
in the early stages of development, chaos did not arise
as part of mainstream science and mathematics. The book provides mini-biographies of some of the main chaos scientists
and describes all the important concepts: turbulence, the butterfly
effect, unpredictability, randomness, non-linearity, dynamical systems, complex
systems, bifurcations, the period-doubling road to
chaos, strange attractors, fractals, self-similarity, scaling, universality in chaos, Poincaré
map, instability, chaotic behavior and Lyapunov exponents.

- The Boatman's Call
Phil Cody - Phil Cody
Nick Cave isn't so much a fallen angel as one that has sauntered slowly
downward; recording along the way the pain, torment, and struggle endured in order to come
to terms with a sad and beautiful existence. The Boatman's
Call is surely one of the greatest Nick Cave albums. And, we could even say, one
of the best albums ever. Some of the truly remarkable tracks (for there really is no weak
point on this album) are "Lime-tree Arbour", "West Country Girl",
"Idiot Prayer", and "There is a Kingdom". This CD is hypnotically
beautiful, eminently listenable, it is a dark dream from which to awaken with hope.
Wendy Carlos (aka Walter Carlos) - A Clockwork Orange
Wendy Carlos has been setting the standard by which all other electronic
music is judged
ever since her first release, Switched On Bach, in 1968. More recently Beauty
in the Beast (1986) exploded the possibilities of alternate tunings and showed itself
to be years ahead of the rest of the pack. And now Wendy bursts forth again, this time
utilizing all of her resources -- alternate tunings, digital orchestrations, real live
singers, and of course her own composing skill. The depth of field, the density of
content, and the uncanny accuracy of her "synthesizing" (you can't tell real
from synthesized) make this a recording to be studied for years to come.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (DVD)
Hong Kong wuxia films, or martial arts fantasies, traditionally squeeze poor
acting, slapstick humor, and silly story lines between elaborate fight scenes in which
characters can literally fly. Crouching
Tiger, Hidden Dragon has no shortage of breathtaking battles, but it also has the
dramatic soul of Old China.

Excellent performance by Malcom McDowell as the murderous misfit captured and reprogrammed by the equally sadistic
