Re: David Loftus redux

Well, the story here is that the two guys who wrote and shot the commercial had done a lot of local ads for Comcast until that company decided only to do national marketing; and they had pieced together an ad for the local company they were going to pitch this one to out of stock footage. Now they w...

Re: Great Bumperstickers

Saw a terrific T-shirt the other day. It had a photograph of a line of American Indian braves and chiefs, and the headline "Homeland Security.

Below: "Fighting foreign terrorists since 1492."

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Oddly enough, I just watched Girl With the Dragon Tattoo . My friend wouldn't shut up throughout the entire thing so I may have missed certain details, but I got the gist of it. Indeed, a fine thriller. Ummm . . . why didn't you just move to another seat, a comfortable distance away? If someone I w...

Re: Ezra's Wholesome American Music Thread

If you haven't seen the documentary "Festival Express," there's a great opportunity to see Janis (and other terrific performers from the Sixties) in action. Here's my review of the film:

Re: Whatcha reading?

What Steve characterizes as a blend, I call being a mongrel. And I hope such would never become unnoticeable -- just honored and celebrated.

I'm often very swift to ask people their ethnic heritage.

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Don't miss the Swedish film of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, everybody (as opposed to the threatened David Fincher remake). It is arguably one of the few examples of a movie that's better than the book it was based on.

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Ghost Writer was a pretty nifty little thriller. Eminently forgettable, but definitely worth watching.

Did it piss you off the way it intended to, Steve, or was yours more of an aesthetic reaction?

Re: David Loftus redux

I can see your point about some of the artwork. I'll try to find time to fix those. Looking at the work of some of the other book profilers on Book Drum, I see that while my profiles may be more complete and erudite, they are not as Web-savvy. Other folks brought in a lot more Web sources, hotlinks,...
