Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America, A Memoir
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America, A Memoir

Prozac Nation page at IMDb.com

OK, people, last chance to read Prozac Nation with anything even resembling seriousness, as the film comes out in May 2002 -- er, make that in January 2003 (to get a new release date isn't a big deal -- but to get a new release date that is eight months later than previously scheduled is really not a good sign!). Lead actress (and co-producer) Christina Ricci probably gives a sensitive, no-nonsense portrayal of author Elizabeth Wurtzel, but the film probably enters camp classic territory by having the role of the female psychiatrist who tirelessly helps Wurtzel in her fight for her sanity, Dr. Sterling, played by none other than that Call Me Crazy authoress, Anne Heche--! (UPDATE: OK, here's the real story. Earlier this year, Elizabeth Wurtzel made some, um, let's begin with thoughtless and work our way down from there comments about her experience with the events of September 11, 2001. This set in motion its own chain of events. Suddenly, Miramax decided that this film would find a wider audience with so-called "Super Bowl widows" in January 2003. But according to Ricci, it was to distance the film from Wurtzel's public relations poison comments. And I thought Heche was the film's biggest liability? Hah!)

(UPDATE II: Okay, NOW the Miramax Prozac Nation film is scheduled to be released in March 2003. Really! Honestly! This time, no kidding!!)

(UPDATE III: Oh my god, is this film EVER going to be released?? Now Miramax has Fall 2003 sprawled across the web site. What-ever!)

Black Silk: A Collection of African American Erotica
Black Silk: A Collection of African American Erotica
by Retha Powers
I'm only halfway through Black Silk, and already I can see how it's better than some of the other erotica anthology books that have been published in the last decade or so. As with most things, the secret is a KISS: Keep It Simple, Stupid! Not to be missed: Eric Jerome Dickey's story, "Good-Bye," in which a newlywed visits her former lover to get, er, "closure."
The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography
The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography by Sidney Poitier
Ok, this book I haven't even read -- yet -- but it's Sidney Poitier's autobiography. This man has had a life like no other man's in America! That alone should make it -- at the very least -- intriguing.


La-La-La  La  La  La-La  La...
I just can't get Kylie Minogue's song out of my head. It's disco -- but it's a good disco, a futuristic disco. A disco without those 1970s green polyester suits -- and doesn't that alone make it good and better already ;>? And also check out the CD by the curly-haired boy wonder over there on the end, Josh Groban. His voice is simply out of this world -- you won't believe your ears!
