COLD-BLOODED – The Mattie Saunders Series – Book 2

The Reptile Refuge where Liz volunteers has been closed by police while they investigate a suspicious death that took place on the premises. Desperately needing a home for her reptiles, she reaches out to an old friend from high school, Mattie Saunders, and asks if it's possible to temporarily board them at Saunders Bird Sanctuary? 

Mattie knows she should be more concerned with the circumstances but sees it as an opportunity to reconnect with her friend, as well as help some animals in distress. It's only after two members of the RCMP drug squad confront Mattie in a coffee shop and suggest that Liz's involvement at the refuge was more than looking after its inhabitants.

The refuge's owner, Leborg Kovacevic, used the facility as a front for his drug trafficking business, and not only Liz was Kovacevic's partner but also his partner-in-crime. Breaking the law isn’t the only risk Mattie’s taking, her life might also be in danger considering the company she keeps.

Too late she finds out Liz has something in common with the pythons, geckos, and iguanas she's seeking shelter for.
They're all cold-blooded.

The Pythons Autobiography By The Pythons - Michael Palin,John Cleese,Terry Gilliam,Eric Idle ...and now for something completely different, let me introduce you the Pythons autobiography by... the Pythons themselves (applause).

What you can find in this book is:
John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and yes, ladies and gentlemen, Graham Chapman live-dead from the afterlife talking about the twenty years they spent together.
What they did earlier.
What they did after.
Who they were before Monty Python:
their provincial childhoods, their boarding and public schools, the dichotomy between an Oxford University and a Cambridge University education (with a brief interlude at the Occidental College - thank you Terry G).

Action. Surprise. A hint of Ambition.
Emotion. Delight. And George Harrison
The rise and fall of a sublime world of clever entertainment provided by blasphemous - pardon - heretical entertainers.

And much more.
They wrote celestial songs such as the crossover hit "Always look at the Bright Side of Life" or the Catholic standard "Every Sperm is Sacred" standing on the top of the seminary charts for 39 weeks after its release and which Benedict - Benny - XVI has recently put #1 on his iPope tunes.

And it's not over yet, mesdames et messieurs.
They revamped the jolly good cult of the Spanish Inquisition.
They gave a new meaning to Life and a new life to Death. They managed to elevate the mundane Victorian squalor of a tasteless salmon mousse to a cracking social icebreaker.

Are they the same Monty Python who searched for the Holy Grail?
Yes, they were.
Are they the same Monty Python who portrayed a complete and utter history of Britain?
Yes, Sir.
It's them.

They were great. They set the scene. They did pretty well, didn't they?
But how they made it for twenty years?

Let's face it. They were underdogs.
Graham Chapman drank. John Cleese was in it for the money. Terry Gilliam never went to Oxbridge, Eric Idle was...well, idle, Terry Jones was Welsh and Michael Palin is now making documentaries for the Bbc...

And in this book Chapman (from post-mortem) quarrels with Idle who criticizes Cleese who throws shit over Palin who doesn't like Jones who quarrels with Gilliam who hates them hall (but especially Cleese) re-hated.

Ladies and Gentlemen, you will love this book.
It's absolutely Pythonesque. It glitters wit. It's savage. It's pure Monty.
And nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

A Plague of Pythons - Frederik Pohl A Plague of Pythons - Frederik Pohl An underrated book. The premise is that a device has been invented which allows the user to assume control of other people's bodies at will: electronically mediated possession, in effect. Pohl explores the consequences unflinchingly.

There are a couple of extremely memorable and disturbing sequences. Here's the one I think of most often. The hero is being introduced to the mind control device by a female character that he's rather attracted to. She says she'll show him how much fun it is. So they head off into mindspace, and after they've looked around a bit they locate a hot couple. She takes control of the girl, he gets the guy. They're on a boat, somewhere warm.

The hero thinks he understands what she's intending, but she brushes away his advances. Not yet, she says. OK, he can wait. The boat has diving equipment. They put on masks, oxygen tanks and flippers, and head off into the ocean. She seems to know where she's going.

Suddenly, he notices that there are several large sharks, quite close to them. He wonders what to do. She gestures to him to hand over his shark knife. He does so.

She uses the knife to cut through his air hose, then her own. She pulls off both their masks. With the point of the knife, she slashes a thin line down her body, then his. Blood streams out into the water.

As the sharks close in, and he starts to black out from lack of air, she wraps herself around him and kisses him passionately.

It would be nice to think that this just showed the author was a sick fuck. Unfortunately, I find it all too easy to believe it's what would actually happen. People can't deal with having too much power, and Pohl found a great way to dramatize that.
