A minor windfall of a gift certificate at Amazon. My current wishlist is all taken care of. But monies remain. So, recommend me a book, a movie, a cd. Please.

Why, you could always spring for the whole Penguin Classics collection! (Think of the free shipping!) Actually, the New Yorker 8 DVD set looks quite good.

Arrogant Worms. It's a musical group: Canadians, very, very funny stuff. Total Empire by Louise Young: it's about the Japanese empire in Manchuria, but it's gonna get cited by a lot of Empire theorists soon. Haven't seen any good movies in ages....

Get a subscription for NYROB and Harpers if you don't have them already (I assume you do). Also: 1. Twilight of Equality by Lisa Duggan 2. Reason, Freedom, and Democracy in Islam by Abdolkarim Soroush 3. I assume you've seen Ritwik Ghatak movies because apparently everyone in the world except me has and... 4. I like Luna.
