] own way — avoiding checkpoints.

They dug under anti-tank walls to get in! That's core!

Topic: Miscellaneous 4:23 pm EDT, Apr  6, 2003

] April 1 may forever haunt Colin Crawford, Los Angeles
] Times Director of Photography, and Brian Walski, a staff
] photographer covering the war in Iraq for the paper.
] That was the day Walski was fired, after it was revealed
] that a photo he submitted on Sunday was actually a
] composite of two images he had captured.

I don't understand why he altered the image. What on earth was his point?

Slashdot | Review: Cowboy Bebop
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:37 pm EDT, Apr  6, 2003

] Fans of the excellent Cowboy Bebop anime series have been
] eagerly awaiting the movie, released on Friday in major
] U.S. cities. The critics seem to like it overall, and,
] skimming through the reviews, the ones who dislike it
] seem to do so for the usual reason: it's a cartoon.
] First impressions: It's quite good, good enough to show
] even non-anime fans. Visually very pretty, plot is
] perfectly adequate, entertaining yet moderately deep,
] it's about all I ask for in an anime movie: it's fun.

Bay Area: The land of open minds and 'tolerance'.
Topic: SF Bay Area 1:24 pm EST, Apr  4, 2003

] In rural Small Town, U.S.A., it would be simple. The
] nation is at war, the boys and girls are fighting and the
] folks want them home.
] So in support of their troops, folks tie yellow ribbons
] around street lamps -- a straightforward and sentimental
] gesture.
] Just like in Burlingame -- a small town on the Peninsula
] -- where people are hanging yellow ribbons.
] But hardly anything is ever simple or straightforward in
] the Bay Area. Instead of good will, the ribbons are
] drawing hate mail and death threats

Super Squid Surfaces in the Antartic!
Topic: Biology 7:38 pm EST, Apr  3, 2003

] A colossal squid has been caught in Antarctic waters, the
] first example of Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni retrieved
] virtually intact from the surface of the ocean. [...]
] "Now we can say that it attains a size larger than the
] giant squid. Giant squid is no longer the largest squid
] that's out there. We've got something that's even larger,
] and not just larger but an order of magnitude meaner."
] This squid has one of the largest beaks known of any
] squid and also has unique swivelling hooks on the clubs
] at the ends of its tentacles. This combination allows it
] to attack fish as large as the Patagonian toothfish and
] probably to also attempt to maul sperm whales. [...]
] "It's only half to two-thirds grown, so it grows up to
] four metres in mantle length." By comparison, the mantle
] of the giant squid, Architeuthis dux, is not known to
] attain more than 2.25 metres. [...]

Stupid Academy Award
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:10 pm EST, Apr  3, 2003

"The Michael Moore production Bowling for Columbine just won the Oscar for best documentary. Unfortunately, it is not a documentary.

Bowling fails the first requirement of a documentary: some foundation in the truth. In his earlier works, Moore shifted dates and sequences for the sake of drama, but at least the events depicted did occur. Most of the time. Bowling breaks that last link with factual reality. It makes its points by deceiving and by misleading the viewer. Statements are made which are false. Moore invites the reader to draw inferences which he must have known were wrong. Dates are transposed and video carefully edited to create whatever effect is desired. Indeed, even speeches shown on screen are heavily edited, so that sentences are assembled in the speaker's voice, but which he never uttered."


Well, when I watched Bowling for Columbine I thought it was pretty hard hitting. This article is a well needed second opinion. I'll have to take anything Michael Moore says with a few more grains of salt.

He's working on a documentary about the connections between the Bush and Bin Laden family called "Farenheit 911." I was hoping for something good but if it's up to the standard of deception that "Bowling for Columbine" used, I think I'll pass.

Shame on *you* Michael.
