Bettie Page

Betty911I been thinking about Bettie Page ever since I heard that she was in the hospital with a heart attack at the age of 85.  And while her story is complicated and convoluted.  Her image has become iconic in American pop culture.  For a women who did, what was taboo photography modeling for her time.  She will always be remembered as a young vivacious, and self-confident woman who helped bring in the sexual revolution of the 60's.  I wish her well and a speedy recovery from her health issues.

Modern Day Pirates

I came across this documentary, that was posted to CURRENT's website about 30 days ago, and found it to be pretty good. You might want to take the tim to watch it. I do warn you it is about 25 minutes long.

Ysabel Review

YsabelI have always liked most everything that Guy Gavriel Kay has written. And this book is in the vain of the stories that I like from him. His use of historical references in his works always helps in drawing me into his narrative. Over all I enjoyed this book. While I would of like so more explorations of the protagonist's family, that is just knit-picking on my part, I have recommended it to some of my friends.
