  • Counter-Strike: Condition Zero – For all your first-person “terrorist v anti-terrorist” needs, you can’t go past Counter-Strike, the world’s most popular online multiplayer game. Condition Zero was released earlier this year as a single-player edition of the award winning game. I finally finished it today – on “Normal” difficulty. Fans of the original game should be most impressed by this modification. I found it both challenging and rewarding. At only $60, it’s definitely worth it.
  • Gomez: Split the difference – The latest album from UK group Gomez was released a couple of weeks back. Gomez is one of only a few bands whose albums I would buy without actually hearing a single song on them. (Pearl Jam and Powderfinger are a couple of others). Anyway – this album has much less edge than their last one (In Our Gun). After a few listens, a couple of notable songs stand out – numbers 4 (Me, you and everybody), and 7 (Catch me up). Gomez have a very unique sound, which makes it difficult to compare them to anyone else. But fans of The John Butler Trio, The Strokes, and Radiohead will get a kick out of this CD.
  • John Grisham: The Runaway Jury – Though it’s not the latest Grisham release, I started reading this book after seeing the movie with the same title. Though the case around which the story is built is somewhat different, both the movie and the book have a very similar story line. I’m about 2/3rds the way through, and am loving it. John Grisham is such a compelling writer – the type of dude where you think, “just one more chapter and I’ll go to sleep” – and it’s always after midnight when you finally turn off the light.
