Hey everybody! Jun. 6th, 2011 @ 03:54 pm
I'll be forming my own death panel this year. Anyone want to join?

Hello, LiveJournal friends. Oct. 26th, 2006 @ 03:48 pm
I'll admit I've never made much of my LJ -- I've only come by to kibitz on yours.

But this is not my point.

My point is to direct you here instead:

I Don't Have Time For Your Blog.

Thank you.

This gorgeous and emotional short animated film has been all the buzz on the Internet, but it's been difficult to find. It seems to get chased off of every site it's hosted on, and with no clear notice -- copyright/ownership issues, perhaps?

I voted. (Twice.) Nov. 2nd, 2004 @ 01:53 pm
So in my precinct in Los Angeles, I voted using a "butterfly ballot" -- printed only on one side, to avoid Florida-style confusion -- and an "ink punch" that prints a circle of ink onto the card. This new system "avoids hanging chads".

By what means did YOU vote?

Weather Woman calls Oct. 31st, 2004 @ 11:36 am
Julia Louis-Dreyfus just called me about Proposition O. It's apparently about the sewers backing up, or something.

Okay, it wasn't really Live Julia, it was just Recorded Julia.

» John Kerry
So if any of you are still undecided this year, there are two pieces of information I think you need to evaluate John Kerry's record.

First, you need the record itself, made in 1961 with his high school bandmates.

Then you also need to evaluate his Vietnam record and postwar protests, as accurately and completely portrayed in the comic strip "Doonesbury".

(Speaking of Doonesbury, I still remember the day I realized that Mike's wife Kim was the Vietnam refugee baby that we'd met in the mid seventies. That has to be one of the longest-running continuous storylines I had ever read in any medium, least of all a daily one. But I digress.)
» Spin
So my friend David Marmor has a short film. It's his thesis film from USC, titled "Spin."

I saw it at its premiere in January and now it's screening at a bunch of festivals.

In particular, for Los Angeles folks, it will play at the Arclight on the evening of September 12 as part of the LA International Short Film Festival. (It's part of Program #75.) You can purchase tickets from the Arclight a week in advance (reserved seating). Email or comment if you want to get seats together.

If you live elsewhere, look up your local film festival screening.

Anyway, it's a good film and a great calling card for a young director. He gives amazing value to a film with a small budget. I feel very privileged to know people like David and madbard who have the talent and tenacity it takes to be independent, creative players in the film industry.
» Phone posts
As near as I can tell, the purpose of phone posts is twofold:

1. To annoy me that I can't get any of the Ogg Vorbis plugins for OS X to work.

2. To permit a forum for people to post 'creative transcriptions'.
» Viral Video of the Day
Excellent.

The question is... is it the same guys who did the previous amazing viral? Or just an imitation?

Makes me wish I had arranged to see a bunraku performance when I was in Japan.
