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.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell & The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst in case you haven't already read them.
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....
