saturday matinee sickday

Today I’m not feeling too great, so I’m camped in front of the TV watching a tape of Guns, Germs & Steel, the PBS documentary of the book (which somehow I missed reviewing)…right after finishing _1491_ — which was *amazing* — and I’m vaguely disappointed. Not that it’s not fascinating, but I’m really missing any treatment of Asia, and finding the coverage of the Inka unsatisfying after my reading. Plus it’s so simplified even in comparison with the book.

Saturday afternoons, aside from cheesy scifi and ludicrous comedy, are for PBS. Specifically, the cooking shows, which are one of the things that I miss from giving up broadcast/cable.

Anyway…I was going to write something more, but I don’t think I’ve got anything particularly more to say right now.
