Had a great weekend that thankfully wasn’t full of work.
The following entries were written in the Movies category:
I saw The Fountain last night. I think the people I saw it with didn’t appreciate it as much, but I enjoyed quite a bit.
You can now “Gift” any iTMS album or song to someone. It doesn’t look like you can do this with full iMixes yet, and iMixes are still always public, but I like where things are headed. We’re getting close to being able to send people full mix tapes via iTunes.
Well, I finally got around to seeing Naqoyqatsi last night. It’s a stunning collection of video and audio depicting our technology, culture, and violence (in many senses).
I’ve been doing terribly at updating this month. Really quite awful. So here’s a recap of the month.
I ended up watching “I, Robot” last night. What a bizarre mish-mash of culture.
Amitai Etzioni criticizes The Fog of War, and I’d like to hear more in-depth reasons.

Wonko points us to a Yahoo! News story about Johnny Depp being the current choice to play Willy Wonka in Tim Burton’s remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Love him or hate him, there’s mounting criticism of Michael Moore and his work on Bowling for Columbine and Stupid White Men.
So the Final Cut thing didn’t happen after all.
So I’ve fallen into the job of helping the LAFCO guys with their webpage.
LAFCO sounds promising (despite having an all-but-empty website at the moment).
The My So-Called Life (Complete Series) on DVD is finally available (after spending an eternity in rental-only hell … just like Hackers). Tasty….
This is far too weird. ABC News is reporting in Language ‘no barrier’ for Gibson’s flick - in Latin: “Mel Gibson is set to direct a movie about Christ’s last 12 hours played out entirely in two ancient tongues -…
