The funny thing about Cory Doctorow’s Eastern Standard Tribe (which you can download in multiple electronic formats here) is that I finished reading the text file version of this book before the printed copy showed up at my friendly, neighborhood bookstore.
I liked Eastern Standard Tribe, even though I read it in two-three minute snippets while waiting for things to happen at work. (Which is a strange way to read a book, let me tell you.) I might still buy a copy of this book, on general principle, because I whole-heartedly approve of what Cory Doctorow is doing.
I’m off to Colorado for the weekend. Visiting the sisters and college #3.
(Going 2 for 2, so far…)
On Saturday, the lovely photog and my chum C. and I went to go see the delightful movie, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.
I cannot recommend this movie more highly. It’s a sweet, intelligent movie, that glitters and sparkles like the gewgaws in a raven’s baffled nest, as well as having a wicked sense of humor. This is probably the best movie I’ve seen so far this year.
Plus and check out this movie-related website: Lacuna, Inc.
I love lists of movies–especially lists of movies that I mostly haven’t seen before.
They look good and they’re mostly things I probably wouldn’t have run into, otherwise.
Here’s part 2.
Here’s Part 3
And, remember, with a name like CHUD, it’s got to be good!
After leaving the old headphones at home today, I have no idea what this “movie” sounds like. (And I can’t, for the life of me, remember where I found the link to it… apparently, this is bad “netiquette”, though I do it all the time…) It looked intriguing enough for me to want to remember to watch (and LISTEN to) this at home.
Wow. Looks like I’ll be going to the University of Washington in the Fall (barring some kind of financial impossibility, of course).
Off to Library School, what fun!
