Quite enjoyed “New York, I Love You.” Read reviews & confirmed suspicions — @ebertchicago understands me. “Paris, Je T’aime” repeat up next.

I’ve never understood the attitude that implies you can’t get something out of pretentious films.
The Boy, watching a movie. “I’ll show you my favorite part, Daddy.” (Watches the TV) “Um, I’ll show you.” (Waits) “It’s loading.”
Just finished Von Trier’s “Antichrist” - Stunning photography. Dedicated to Tarkovsky? Bold, but it rhymes.

Ripped jeans, hoodie, on the couch watching Mulholland Dr. A nearly perfect day so far. Happily finding I still love this film.
Off to shoot some animals. With a camera. But they are dead. I didn’t do it. The museum did. Stop looking at me like that.
Clicking QuickTime X Player’s » button plays a movie at 2x, but my preference has always been 1.5x. Just tried Alt-clicking »… works!
Reading student papers. Don’t recall ever turning in a college paper that used the term “douchebag.” Or “Deutsche bag.” #spellCheckFail
Anyone know of a short film equivalent to NIN’s remix-able downloads (i.e., free, multi-track Pro Tools session w/ vox, fx, foley, etc)?
Lots of recommendations for http://opencut.org/. While cool & *so* close, unfortunately I’m looking for a locked picture audio mix session.

The Boy’s Law: The later I stay up partying the night before (e.g. 2am), the earlier he wakes up the next morning (e.g. 7am).

Today’s Concept Dev topic: surrealism. Showing Un Chien Andalou, Svankmajer, Quay Bros, Polanski shorts, Jung docs. Not enough time!

Wii swordplay, Kung Fu Panda & Ramen noodles. Too early for “Dad of the Year” noms?
The Boy: “Daddy, why can we not eat clouds?”
(cont.) Do we capture data to drives on cart, or just route to lab next door to fibre array? Anyone have kickass, bullet-proof(ish) ideas?
Budget pipe-dream: Studio capture “cart” with decent i/o, software scopes, Conduit for RT keying, pipe live feed to lab next door. (cont.)
Students asking me to pirate software for them is so cute. Like dead baby birds.
School’s budget time: Looking for HD studio-on-a-cart solution—HD capture, possibly routing, FCP friendly. Looking at AJA io HD. Others? Thx
