If there is a God, I pray that he never lets me write a book like Transcendence.
And that's not a knock on the movie, it's a compliment actually.
A bit of background--I love Johnny Depp. I love him more than Brad Pitt and on par with Tom Cruise. He's sexy. He's funny. He's intellig...Read more of this blog post »

I didn’t even know there was an institution known as the Insect Museum of West China, at least until it made the news for being the repository of this fearsome-looking bug:
Frankly, I’m glad that the Insect Museum of West China does exist, though, and surprisingly beautiful it is, too. (Though i...Read more of this blog post »
