    I saw about 30 minutes of the Conjuring on SyFy last night. My first thought: nuke the demon bitch!

    I don't know which is worse: a termite problem or a witch demon infestation.
    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.

    I saw The End of the Tour yesterday, a film about the author David Foster Wallace. Wallace's most famous work was the novel "Infinite Jest", published in 1996.

    He also famously killed himself in 2008.

    The film is a retrospective of an interview of Wallace for Rolling Stone by writer David Lipsky. (Lipsky's article went unpublished until 2009, after Wallace died. In 2010 Lipsky won a National Magazine Award (think Pulitzer-Prize-for-magazines) for his work.) 95% of the film is retelling, mostly word-for-word (most of the screenplay is sourced from tapes Lipsky recorded, so the actual dialogue is often verbatim), the story of their five or six days together in 1996 as Wallace was finishing his book tour for "Infinite Jest".

    It's hard to describe what this film is about in more detail than that. The subject matter goes all over the place. Wallace and Lipsky talked about all sorts of things: television (Wallace's "addiction"), dogs, fame, women (Alanis Morissette in particular), alcoholism, being a writer, and suicide. This isn't a dramatization of their time together, just a very faithful re-enactment. In a way it's a movie about nothing, and in another way it's a movie about everything.

    I enjoyed it very much; it's easily one of the best films I've seen in recent memory.

    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"


    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
    - David Bohm

    I was in the worst mood yesterday, so I decided to watch Precious. Bad choice. Good movie, though, albeit depressing as hell.

    I found The Nutty Professor to be a better "fat people have horrible lives" movie.

    Hm, I'd have to disagree. Paul Blart: Mall Cop tops the list. Even more depressing, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.

    I watched Sans Soleil (1983) by Chris Marker. It's a beautiful film. I recommend it.

    Tig the documentary of comedian Tig Notaro.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
