Just testing out the new WordPress for Android app I just downloaded. Is it called “downloading”? Installing? Whatev.

Either way, this is either gonna be a good thing, or a bad thing. Well, bad/dangerous for me anyway. Still total win/win situation that can only lead 2 laughs for you ppl on the interwebs.

Also testing uploading a pic, so u can see I’m about to watch Avatar.

Ok, so not much to report, so I’m just gonna show some link love. Can you tell I’ve just had a 3-day weekend? That means time to surf the internets.

And here are the things I found interesting…

Danger Mouse is in a legal battle w/ his label; so his next album is a 100+ book w/ a blank cd-r enclosed. Feel free to pirate.

10 things you never knew about the Eiffel Tower.

The breakdown of the average student budget.

100 obscure & remarkable cd covers.

Top 100 Comic Book Villains of all time.

Top 10 lasting (mis)quotes.

And b/c I saw Star Trek this weekend, here are some Trekkie links:

Find the right Star Trek for your movie watching needs.

How big is the new Enterprise compared to the old one?

And this. Le piece de la resistance. If you didn’t click on any of the links above, but you enjoyed either Star Trek OR Star Wars, you need to check out this youtube vid.

nu-uh, they’ve got Milk!

Remember a couple years ago, how interested in Milk I was?

Click on this screenshot of my archived post to read it:

penn on lf, milk on rt

I was just fascinated w/ Harvey Milk & I still haven’t seen that documentary that I wanted to.

Well, I just found out that they’re doing another movie about Harvey Milk & Sean Penn’s gonna play him. Oh, oh , OH, & there’s MORE! Gus Van Sant is directing! My Own Private Idaho was one of my fave movies! If you love Shakespeare, you have to see it!

I’m not a huge Sean Penn fan, but I am a big Harvey Milk fan & a big Gus Van Sant. I’m definitely not going to miss this one. Hopefully, I’ll have seen that 1984 doc by then too.

that’s how you slap a racist diva


How comes we don’t convict racists & bigots here in the US like they do in France?

They mean ill-will & harm to a particular group of ppl. How many ppl die here in the US b/c of their race, religion, gender (transgender), or sexual-orientation? How many are harmed or die, & it goes unreported? It’s sickening.

story:
Brigitte Bardot wrote a letter to (then) Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. In the letter, she provoked discrimination and racial hatred; stating that Muslims are destroying France.

She wrote that France was “tired of being led by the nose by this population that is destroying us, destroying our country by imposing its acts.”

Her statements were also published in her foundation’s quarterly journal.

France has anti-racism laws that “prevent inciting hatred and discrimination on racial or religious or racial grounds”. Bardot has already been convicted four times for this in the past.

heehee…. he said huckleberry

Now for another installment of conversations in real-life:

My dad talkin to my sister on speaker-phone w/ my mom & me. He’s trying to describe an actress to her.

pappa: She looks like that woman… you know… from the James Bond movie…… Huckleberry.

my sis: huh? Huckleberry?

mom: HALLE BERRY!!!

hee hee. Yeah, not much, but it kinda cracked me up. Cause we all know my history w/ Halle Berry.

Batman vs. The Dark Knight

Whoa…. have you guys seen this? My girl emailed it to me earlier this week, but of course I can’t watch video at work, so I just saw it now.

It’s the Trailer from Batman ’89 playin simultaneously w/ the new Dark Knight Trailer.

Pretty cool…. although it could just be that I can’t get enough Batman stuff. I CANNOT WAIT for this movie to come out!

snowed in

So, I’m kinda bummed. Was really excited about going to a pre-show party tonight for Red {an orchestra}. My good friend & I had gotten tics to this Cool Cleveland party before the show. It was an open bar w/ appetizers catered by another friend of ours (who owns Gypsy Beans & does the yummiest catering). So, we were pretty psyched* about it.

Red {an orchestra} was doing a night of movie music….

BERNARD HERRMANN: MORE THAN THE MOVIES | 3.8.08

Red’s sixth season comes to an exciting conclusion with a concert featuring the music of film composer Bernard Herrmann, whose scores for classic films of Alfred Hitchcock–Vertigo, North By Northwest and Psycho–are unmatched in their distinctive style. His style as a film composer, keen psychological atmospheres made with simple means, was formed in his concert music. His early pieces in the manner of his idol, Arnold Schoenberg, matured as he worked in radio and then Hollywood, his ambition remaining high, even as his film music eclipsed all other efforts. In this unique program, film clips featuring Herrmann’s Hollywood music mingle with a suite from Psycho, and work from his time in the 1930s at CBS Radio. The highlight of the program is a group of excerpts from his unproduced opera, Wuthering Heights, perhaps the greatest unknown opera in the history of American music.

Sounds cool, huh? I KNOW! I was really looking forward to it, but just hoping now that they may reschedule. I mean, they’ve all been rehearsing for this show for a few weeks, I’m sure.

So, they were planning on doing a bunch of pieces that composer Bernard Herrmann did for Alfred Hitchcock’s movies, but they were going to do excerpts from an unproduced piece too?!?!?! Seriously?!

They HAVE to reschedule!

Oh, did I mention the reason everything’s cancelled? B/c of the winter storm. We were so ready to brave it. I went out there to my car. The snow drifts are 3 to 4 feet, I made it to the garage w/ the help of my trusty snow shovel. Then I opened the garage door……

Yeah, that wasn’t gonna happen. No way my Corolla’s makin it out of the garage. So, I call my girl to see what it’s like where she is, cause I can make it to the end of the street w/ my snow shovel. She gets outside, & makes it as far as the end of the street….

No more.

Dude, you’ve gotta give us credit for tryin though. So, we’re on the phone figuring out that this is just not gonna happen for us tonight, & go back into our respective homes. I get upstairs & turn on the news, & see that in some counties, the police are actually fining/ticketing ppl who are out on the street if it’s not an emergency!

*do ppl still say psyched?
