Just a quick update. I'm on the fourth book of A Song of Ice and Fire, formally titled A Feast for Crows, but which might well have been called Game of Thrones: Cutting Room Floor. While it's interesting to see Cersei Lannister as a first-time viewpoint character, the book still reads like an assembled collection of extras thrown together after A Storm of Swords went through the red pens.
I'm also currently enjoying Saturday Night Live and American TV, a collection of essays that make up the first published academic study on SNL, and a contrast to the oral history that was the (still highly recommended) Shales/Miller Live From New York. The book I'm really waiting for, though, is You Might Remember Me: The Life and Times of Phil Hartman, by Mike Thomas, scheduled for September of this year. Whenever anyone asks me what my favorite SNL seasons were, I always mention "whenever Phil Hartman was on the show". Hopefully, the authors of Saturday Night Live and American TV get a few words in about my all-time favorite cast member, gone way too soon.
What's everybody reading out there?
Composition, theory, history, and daily life....this is a series of both fact and perspective. I'm Mark Dundore, and this is what I'm about.
