Well, on a whim Chip and I decided to see Michael Moore’s film Bowling for Columbine. I must say that this is perhaps one of the best films I’ve seen this year. This, following his book Stupid White Men, makes Moore one of my favorite political commentators, bar none. Between these two (the book and the movie) Moore tackles not only the problems with America but who’s to blame and what we can do to fix things. I’ll probably offer up a full sized review tomorrow but I figured I should share and strongly encourage anyone who has the slightest bit of disgust for corporate America, gun-nuts or social issues to go see this movie. I know it’ll probably be hard to track down, it’s probably not at your local cinema, but it’s well worth whatever drive you have to take to get there. The reason this movie one best of show at Cannes is obvious.
A few odds and ends…
Amazon continues to impress me. Not only are they offering free shipping on orders over $25 this season, they’ve also opened a clothing section with stuff from Old Navy, Kenneth Cole and Urban Outfitters. Nifty.
Lastly, for those of you who simply NEED to modify, MOD chip, tinker with and/or outright break copy-protections on everything and everything… check out ModShack. The main attraction here are the forums and like most forum based sites there’s your usually mix of idiots and bigger idiots. There is some useful info in there if you don’t mind looking for it. I was particularly interested in the DVD ripping and Software exploits sections and Chip might want to check out the Tivo hacking area.
That’s about it. G’night kids.
