Paul Newman: 1925-2008

Posted at 10:24 Permalink

In bidding farewell to Cool Hand Luke, I would suggest that there are few better ways than to take in a viewing of The Sting. That's probably not very accurate, however, as Paul Newman acted in many fine motion pictures, so you can take your pick.

Somebody not Douglas Adams has been hired to write a sixth Hitchhiker's Guide book? This aggression will not stand, man.

MySpace is good for something after all

Posted at 23:47 Permalink

Just found an MP3 of a song I've been after since 1997. A scene in the movie "Starship Troopers" (one of my favorite political movies), features a cover version of David Bowie's "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town", but that track is not on the soundtrack. Turns out that the singer, ZoŽ Poledouris, has it available for download from her MySpace page. Now, my life is complete.

Farewell, Uncle Chuck

Posted at 16:41 Permalink

Sad news today as we hear the Charleton Heston died at the age of 85. I didn't agree with his politics and find many of his movies silly beyond silly, but there's no denying that the man was magic. Ride into the sunset, Uncle Chuck. Adios!

The world's dullest Flickr photo collection. I'm posting a photo a day, or thereabouts. Let's see how long it lasts.

Happy New Year

Or whatever. 2008 shall probably not be the year the website is updated regularly, but I'm sure we'll all muddle through somehow.

Why does God need a starship?

Paul Thurrott lays it all our for you:

Steve Jobs is a god. An angry, spiteful god, but a god nonetheless. I know why you worship him. But I fear for you all the same.

From his blog.

So, there I was, in the Barnes & Noble, looking for a book, the title of which I did not know. After a while of walking around the aisles, fruitlessly, I remembered- I have the Internet with me. I have my iPhone. A quick check with Google led me to Amazon, where I discovered that the book I wanted was out of print. I checked with B& now that I had a title, but they didn't have it listed.

I'd like to say that I ordered the book from amazon right there in the store, but I didn't. I waited until later. That would have been the perfect ending to the story though, wouldn't it?
