The Millenium Trilogy

Hi, everyone.

I don't know what the future holds for this blog. I wanted to write about how much i love the three films in the "Millenium" trilogy -- i have become quite obsessed with this series -- and have just started reading the books, AAMOF -- but that picture there, to my left.  It was very difficult for me to manipulate it in to the position i wanted it. Why?

I dunno! I think maybe blogspot has lost interest, wants us all to move up to Google+ or something? But writing the blog has become ... work, rather than the fun it once was.

Anyway, where was i? Oh, yes, obsessing over Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo.

I watched this, "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest," the other day and it's a brilliant end to a brilliant series.  There are two Lisbeths, of course: Rooney Mara in the American version (and that's her there above right) and Noomi Rapace in the Swedish films (below right). So far, i prefer Noomi, but it will be very interesting to see how Rooney copes with Amurrican version part 2, "The Girl Who Played With Fire," when that comes out this year.


Well, i haven't really been keeping it up but here's a bit of it:

Various Artists - Let's Move: A Heavy Blues Collection
Fairport Covention - Before The Moon, disc 1
Marillion - Sounds That Can't Be Made
Ofra Haza - BaytHam
