This video from MGMT is inspiring. And colourful. It deserves to be watched full-screen. Our youth are starting to change!
I went to a local festival screening of Nuri Bilge Ceylan's new film Three Monkeys (you all need to move to Montreal!) today. The whole ends up being less than the sum of its parts, but it's still a worthy effort from one of the most interesting directors I know of working today. And there are some really extraordinary scenes, and some great performances.
I've been thinking about George Dubya lately. I like him, or at least I always find his jokes funny. I've realized that Bush is, to me (politics and wealth aside), a character that would fit right into a great Jim Jarmusch script. Roberto Benigni, Tom Waits, and George W. Bush.
Unfortunately, he ended up in an Oliver Stone film instead.
Remember this guy? John Ankerberg. We didn't own a TV growing up, but somehow I still remember his face vividly.
"...or somebody that wrote a book."
