Best Movies: Killing Them Softly: What a crying shame this movie went over with a thud. From the jarring opening sequence to the hilarious last line. This movie was like heroin to me; totally awesome.  Marley: Look, I’m not really a Bob Marley fan, but one cannot deny he lived quite an interesting life. Just think of how good he woulda been if it weren’t for the Jah bullshit.
Best TV Shows: Boardwalk Empire: Proof that TV is better than movies.  Comedy Bang Bang: Proof that TV is better than podcasts.
Best Books (non-fiction): The Dark Side Of Disney by Leonard Kinsey. Kinsey gives us all of the tips, tricks, scams, and stories that’d have Walt rolling in his cryogenic grave. I love a good scam, especially at a beloved theme park. Life After Deathby Damien Echols SPOILER ALERT  Damien talks about how he killed those kids and got away with it too, dude. Just kidding.

Pierre Fermat Illustration

Here’s a cover for a translated  book of renaissance French mathematics by  Jim Nicholson.

The subject is Pierre Fermat. He invented calculus, statistics, analytical geometry and corrected Galileo about the orbits of bodies, and he has Fermat’s principle in optics named after him.

Needless to say, every time someone challenged him about proofs and such, he came through. A man after my own heart.

My pals  Tom Warner and Scott Huffines document their obsessive fascination with their beloved hometown on Baltimoreorless.com. Lifelong denizens of “The Land of Pleasant Living,” they feel obligated to preserve oddball minutiae about “Charm City” that they and few others care to remember.

Check ‘em out on Facebook too!

Oh, and coming soon to Novelty Haus: Buttons of the Scarface image above. You heard it here first!
