Shoot ‘Em Up

February 12, 2008

Clive Owen is awesome. Shoot ‘Em Up is awesome too, as long as you can completely shut down your brain. It doesn’t make sense, but it is violent and goofy and awesome.

Watch it. I know I’m late, but I’m flexing my Netflix muscles.



The Laramie Project

October 5, 2007

I just got back from my Sociology: Race, Class, and Gender course where we watched most of The Laramie Project. From what I saw, it is in incredible movie, an I recommends it for everyone.

I just wanted to say how blessed I feel that I was raised in such a way and in a time and place such that a person’s lifestyle has never prevented their life from enriching mine. I hope you all can experience the same.

More later.

High Fidelity, Er, Squared?

September 20, 2007

So, I watched one of my all time top-five desert island movies the other day: High Fidelity. It’s also a great book, and while I can’t speak about the musical from experience, it sounds interesting.

Anyhow, I was looking for a passage from the book online and came across a pretty interesting fact. Apparently, Regina Spektor’s song Fidelity was inspired by the novel.  It turns out I love the song, too.

I still haven’t found the passage; short of retrieving the book from home or watching the movie again I’ll probably have to go without. Thats OK by me, though, as both of those options are appealing. In short, go watch/read/listen to it!
