Tron Legacy

Viewed the movie Tron Legacy yesterday.  It's a visually impressive movie, which was fun to see in an Imax theatre. The plot was actually kind of interesting philosophically.  I was slightly surprised by what is essentially post-modern philosophy as part of the resolution of the movie.

I just finished reading George Washington's Diaries (abridged) edited by Dorothy Twohig.  The book was interesting at times for some backstory on who George Washington was, but not very explicit or generally interesting.  It was fun to learn that he fell in a frozen river, while running away from indians.

I've been reading The Wines of California, the Pacific Northwest and New York by Roy Andries De Groot.  This is an interesting book, as it contains much information (about North American wines) gleaned from years and years of being a food expert for various magazines and publications.

I also picked up Parzival: A Romance of the Middle Ages, by Wolfram Von Eschenbach.  It's a poem about the quest for the holy grail, from the beginning of the 13th century.
