The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireball - Book

For some reason, the Tunguska event of 1908 is one of those mysteries that won't go away. Sci-Fi writers come up with unique stories around this event, and scientists come up with new theories. What we do know is that something came out of the sky on 7:17 a.m. in Siberia and "felled an estimated 60 million trees over 2,150 square kilometers."

The book, "The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireball," tells the story of the event and examines all the theories. One of the wildest theories is that a microscopic black hole collided with the earth. But most scientists think that the event was caused by the airburst of a meteorite or a comet.

Stuart Little - DVD

This was much better than I remember the first time I watched it. I guess the difference is that now I have kids.

Secret Weapons Over Normandy - Xbox

I'm a sucker for WWII movies and games. I like how this game, from LucasArts, tries to work in some history as you become the best pilot in the Allied Air Force.

EA Sports Fight Night 2004: Xbox

This is an interesting game, but I have two problems with it so far: 1) When you're training, the trainer (AKA Chris Rock) tells you how bad you are as a boxer. Not very motivating. 2) The controls are hard to master at first.

I do like that you can fight as famous boxers like Ali.

Mission: Impossible III - Theater

Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt. For me, this Mission was the most enjoyable. Recommended for people who want to see a good summer action movie.

R.V. - Theater

I took Cameron to see this today. I thought it was good family entertainment--nothing special. It did have some sweet parts in it.

Extreme Drumming: Marco Minnemann - DVD

After watching parts of this instructional video, I've come to the conclusion that there are two schools of drummers in the world: those whose playing centers around feel and those whose playing centers around independence. After watching Marco Minnemann execute independence on a drum kit that I can't even dream of -- as well as an ability to play a amazing groove, he seems to be one of those rare drummers who sits comfortably in both schools.
