Have you guys read Homicide? What an amazing book (if you like The Corner especially). If you have read both, which is better in your opinion?

Homicide is also one of the greatest things I've ever read.  I like The Corner better.

Joseph Harnell - The Lonely Man
Best TV theme ever?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

My favorite tv theme song of all time is Friday Night Lights.


Okay, a question:

What would you choose to watch in most situations: a championship game of your favorite professional sport or a film that you love?

Me, too.  I wish I was a pro athlete.  :'(

I can watch a film I love whenever I want, but it's not everyday that the Twins are in the Series.

very very true. For any team I mean, that wasn't a shot at the Twins. I mean these games are live too, and like you said, you can watch a film pretty much whenever.

I would only not watch the film if Colombia or Nacional was playing.
