4 Day Catch Up

OK, I haven't check in since Mon, so lets catch up on the last 4 days.

Work was work - nothing unusually stressful, basically a low key week.

I watched a pretty decent noir with the always terrific Robert Mitchum. The flick was called Where Danger Lives and Mitchum was basically a far too nice dr. who tries to help a young woman and the consequences he endures because of it. Basically no good deed goes unpunished. The end was not nearly as dark as I expected, which may affect your opinion of the film. For me Mitchum's performance is classic, a guy who literally begins to lose his faculties because of his attempts to be kind. Also good is Claude Raines, in a small but very important role. Recommended.

Finished a great Hardcover graphic novel, a story reimagining the origins of one of my favorite comic book characters, Green Arrow, aka Oliver Queen. The team that produced one of my favorite recent series, The Losers, Andy Diggle and Jock, combine here to make a great book. Recommended.

The Red Sox dropped 2 games in 3 days, and dropped from 32-22 to 32-24. They are 1-4 on a road trip right now, and ace Dice K has been put on the 15 day DL due to strained rotator cuff. Sounds like no big deal, and they are just being cautious, but one thing that worries me with Dice-K is the enormous amount of pitches he's already thrown in his life. Hopefully no big deal, but it sure is nice to have Bartolo Colon around right now.

The Celtics can clinch a bid in the finals tonight!

Towlies in town!
