Book #412: False Pretenses (1994, Arthur Lyons)

I've read this before. The start sounded very familiar and with 50 pages to go I knew "whodunit". Arthur tries a little too hard in the first half of the book. He spreads the hard boiled PI style on a bit too thick. In the second half, he calms down and pretty much sticks to the unfolding plot. Pretty good private eye tale.

Movie #1982: 200 Motels (1971, Frank Zappa)

It took me 41 years to see this film? Yikes!
Anyway, I needn't have worried - it's pretty much a stinker. Lots of frantic cutting and visual effects makes this a freakout? No.
