I only recently (in the past year) watched Alien. Today, I am watching Predator. I am completely familiar with the key scenes and characters, but I've just never sat through either movie.
I am totally outing Mike though...until I made him, he had never seen 2001: A Space Odyssey or War Games. War Games, come on! He was pretty glad he had seen it by the time he read Ernie Cline's Ready Player One. I guess that's how geek marriages work...we complete each other's repertoires. And we talk about the geeky stuff we saw on the Internet. Like Felicia Day's new YouTube channel, Geek and Sundry.
And my favorite new song, "I'm the one that's cool."
Speaking of books, I just finished Haruki Murakami's newest book, 1Q84. I have never read any of his stuff before. It was interesting, but not something I would read again. I might read another of his, as I like his style.
Right now I am reading The Forever War. I love it. It has just enough detail to set my imagination going but not drown me with every little thing.
