I liked World War Z okay, but I feel like that book could have become a way better movie. So many of the characters and vignettes were ripe for the big screen. It would have taken some serious work to make a coherent movie out of that, and it would have eschewed the star-driven model of the movie that was made (but ensemble casts are becoming more accepted, aren't they?), but it could have been done and it would have been incredible.

Oh yeah I didn't even mention Phil Bushey, or Angie, or Duke. Huge differences. I'm fine with them making it their own thing, though, as long as it's good. Time will tell. Fortunately, Stephen King has this infallible tendency to make books that become great miniseries. It's like they're perfectly suited to the task. They rarely disappoint.

Did anyone watch Under the Dome? It looks like it's going to be a lot different from the books, in a couple of fundamental ways that I did not expect. I mean I knew it would be different, but this is really different. Could still be good though, not rushing to judgment.

Bjorrito: have you listened to Andrew Thomas? I got into him because he's on all the Kompakt Pop Ambient series albums and his tracks are always the best. I been rockin that shit. I've been listening to a ton of ambient lately as well. Not so much drone tho
