Presently reading Hannibal, the book about the serial killer Hannibal Lecter. I find his character fascinating but somewhat unrealistic. Most serial killers I am aware of were apparently quite mundane characters - check out Jeffrey Dahmer and Dennis Nielsen. They dressed quite shabbily and had very ordinary jobs. For more info on serial killers check out serialkillers.net, it also has a monthly poll on issues related to serial killers.
For less serious matters check out nexus 6, a website produced by a South African techno band, excellent visuals. For more South African techno music log onto Lime Records.

Presently watching Pandora's Box on video, one of my favourites. A silent movie with the beautiful Louise Brooks. I also bought at the same time from Amazon.co.uk another video, Gold Rush, starring Charlie Chaplin. There are some great scenes in the movie.
