It's a pop culture jungle out there. Rather than select as your guide a website that doesn't give a damn about you, take us along. We promise not to walk out of the underbrush wearing your bandoleer, if you know what I'm saying.
Amazon's deal of the day is obviously in honor of our very own Kim, Minister of Simulated Mayhem: it's The Sims 3 at 40% off. So if you'd like to make your own creepy simulated Weekend Justice house--you know, please don't--but I mean, if you do, then the price is $29.98 today only Image from Rox's site.
Also, the price on the Xbox 360 has dropped--the Elite 120GB model is now $299.99 and the Pro 60GB model is now $249.99. You can snag one here if it so moves you.
In other Amazon news, Mac OSX Snow Leopard is now available from Amazon. And if you were going to buy it anyway, if you do it through us--if you buy any of this stuff you were going to buy anyway from us--then we get kickbacks that support the site. So thanks in advance.
Pirate Latitudes, Michael Crichton's final book (which is due out on November 24th), has been picked up by DreamWorks. Spielberg might direct. David Koepp (Stir of Echoes) is scribing. The book is set in 1665 and "revolves around a daring plan to infiltrate Port Royal, Jamaica, one of the world's richest and most notorious cities, and raid a Spanish galleon filled with treasure." This will come after Harvey--which the article mentions as being based on the original play and not saying a word about the Jimmy Stewart movie. Weird. The Crichton book, incidentally, can be pre-ordered here.
