Polished up my grammar a bit...

Since there was no real thread for useless but nonetheless
interesting links I thought I'd create one.

Add to your netflix queue. It's very good.

I don't Netflix. I know I know... hate me. But I can't stand getting scratched media. I'd rather not rent at all. When I had netflix, about 50% of the movies we rented *albeit only about 12* were scratched and unplayable at parts. Kill bill part II was scratched and unplayable at the last 15 minutes. That was enough. I'd rather buy the movie than wait 3-5 days to see the end. I know this isn't the experience for everyone but eh... I also have a ton of free movies on cable so maybe I'll catch it there one day. I know Anthony Michael Hall is in it and Winona Ryder and I generally like Tim Burton's movies so I'm sure I'll enjoy it once I see it.

Speaking of Winona Ryder... She's playing Spock's mom in the new Trek film.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
mmmm Winona ... she can shoplift from me anytime.

Haven't had the same amount of trouble with Netflix (and founder is a Bowdoin alumni). I did send them a brown swirly one for having a dumb Windows only video viewer.

DAMN! And I thought waterboarding was harsh. Too bad I have all my Christmas shopping done. That would take the cake for the ultimate "White Elephant Regift".

Oprah had and did that sinus kettle thing on her show. Looks refreshing to me.

What a journey.

Bad filming/acting/editing or school?

Oh god...

Everything I made in college pretty well sucked. Generally had far superior technical aspects - namely better editing because that's what I was into at the time. But still, sucked.

Didn't have any great actors. Writing was mediocre at it's very best. Never had time to figure out any cool effects shots. And this was pretty much true of everyone else I knew trying to do videos... Was just too busy trying to juggle work for half a dozen classes, a few hours a week for a job, and some semblance of a social life.

Of course now I do some of the basic effects work with all these guys that have won emmys and stuff and the product is awesome. And they look to me for advice/consultation on just about any technical thing. Go figure.

I will never judge people on whether or not their college work was any good.

_WE_ should write something. The spork collective should write a script.

A good start.

Methinks mayhaps we should enlist some outside help...
