Another Dresden book, and another good read. This time the wizard takes on necromancers in Dead Beat.
I could go on gushing about the book, but if you read my blog you know that I love them. I will admit that I enjoyed Jim Butcher’s take on necromancy and raising the dead. It was new to me, the concept of having a “drummer” who keeps the beat that allows the dead to stay under the control of the necromancer. Very interesting.
Anyway, I do look forward to reading the next book given all the events of this one…
for making me want to start a rock band
The Rocker is the story of Robert ‘Fish’ Fishman. He was the drummer in a rock band named Vesuvius, until he was kicked out. Twenty years later, his nephew’s band needs a drummer to play their prom gig. From there we follow Fish as he is once again in a band on the rise.
When I first heard about this movie, I was worried it was going to be ninety minutes of “the old guy” being crazy and gross before ending with some sort of heart warming ending. Thankfully, while there are some crazy gross old guy moments they are few, and the movie is genuinely funny.
I really enjoyed it alot, and I suppose it helps that I am already a fan of Teddy Geiger, so I liked the music quite a bit.
Definitely worth seeing.
