Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen is a very good beer. It's one smoky beer. A bit bitter at first, but when your palate gets used to all these wonderful flavours, you'll keep coming back for more. Most excellent.
James S. A. Corey aka. Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck wrote one of the regular doorstoppers of 2010. Leviathan Wakes is a big, bold interplanetary space opera, that plays with cliches and invents a few new ones. This is one proper "lukuromaani" as we say in Finland. There's action, betrayal, space battles, sacrifices, rebellion, war, love and kitchen sink. And vomit zombies! I believe I died a little when those came into the picture, but in the end it was OK. Hollywood goes Space in A Book!
Religulous (2008) is Bill Maher taking a look into the world of organised religion of the worlds. He asks plenty questions and gets some answers from people of various faiths. Most of the people interviewed give their denomination a really bad name, while some salt of the Earth -types get a bit more respectful treatment. To an atheist this is often very funny, if a bit repetative. Maher's had this schtick for the longest time and it gets a bit stale at times (which indeed surprised me a bit). I had higher hopes for this one. Still, "eh?" for an effort.
