Music:The Scumfrog vs. David Bowie: "This Is Not America"
This is the entry where I get to show off my birthday loot and make people jealous. I received the DVD Mr. Rice's Secret (starring David Bowie), the CD Disco 3 by the Pet Shop Boys, and a CD of David Bowie remixes called Club Bowie. I also received the following books:
First Indian on the Moon by Sherman Alexie
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Paradise of the Blind by Duong Thu Huong
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Box Garden by Carol Shields
Lincoln by Gore Vidal
Empire by Gore Vidal
The Trial of God by Elie Wiesel
And I see that Canada has given me the best birthday present of all, by legalizing same-sex marriage. Now, if only they'd given me an even better birthday present by invading the U.S. and taking over control of our government.
