Popular Culture

15Jun09

Popular Culture has never had it this good in these past few days. Here’s a quick sampling of the movies, books, TV shows, and music I have been either watching, reading, or listening to, and I urge you to take a dekko yourself. More on these later, I promise!

TV Shows:

Bones: (Source: Wikipedia) The show is based on forensics and police procedurals in which each episode focuses on an FBI case file concerning the mystery behind human remains brought by FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth to the forensic anthropology team of Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan.

Bones airs on Star World, every Wednesday, at 10 p.m. with repeat telecasts on Thursday afternoons and Saturday evenings.

Heroes: (Source: Wikipedia) Heroes is an American science fiction television drama series created by Tim Kring, which premiered on NBC on September 25, 2006.[1] The series begins by telling the stories of apparently ordinary individuals from around the world who mysteriously develop superhuman abilities, and who then seek to use them to prevent the end of the world

Heroes has stopped airing since Season 3 is over. Stay tunes for Season 4!

Movies:

Star Trek: Enough said. Watch the trailer on Apple.com/Trailers: http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/startrek/

Angels and Demons: Hollywood continues to get adaptation wrong. But quite riveting: http://www.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/angelsdemons/

Books:

An old comforting favorite, Agatha Christie continues to keep me thinking long after the more contemporary authors have thrown up their hands in exasperation: http://www.amazon.com/Curtain-Poirots-Last-Agatha-Christie/dp/0007121121/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1245006481&sr=8-1

Music:

Linkin Park’s new single, New Divide from the Transformers 2 OST. Watch the cool video on YouTube, and then BUY it online on the Itunes Store! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TB79WZuEPFs&feature=popular
