The Hurt Locker- IED EOD Days in Iraq -One to See ASAP

I saw The Hurt Locker today, the new movie about the Iraq war.
It is an excellent **** film that follows a three man US Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal team around Iraq while its leader played by actor Jeremy Renner calmly defuses all sorts of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

For much of the movie, the enemy is unseen, or only suspected. Iraqi civillian men with cellular phones and video cameras watch the main characters team intently in several scenes. One of of them may or may not hold the phone that can trigger a nearby IED.
When the EOD team is drawn out of the city on a mission to the desert they finally encounter insurgents. A long range sniper duel ensues and the EOD team gets a taste of blood literally and figuratively during the battle.
It is not at all what they expected.
The Hurt Locker is similar to Gunner Palace, The Kingdom and Blown Away, so if you enjoyed those movies, you'll probably enjoy The Hurt Locker as well.

Book on the Bus: Gang Leader for a Day By Sudhir Venkatesh

During my commute to work by bus each day, I use part of the trip to read a book. Usually an eBook on my Palm TX PDA

This month I'm reading Gang Leader for a Day: A Rogue Sociologist Takes to the Streets by Sudhir Venkatesh

I bought it from eReader.com

Not Daily, that's for sure

My plan for this blog was to post something everyday, however that clearly  hasn't happened.
Time to change the name of the blog.

And I'll try to post more often as well.
