origin of the ginger man

when you don't have any money, the problem is food.
when you have money, it's sex.
when you have both, it's health.
if everything is simply jake, then you're frightened of death.

on hiking 21 miles to live in mud

information is not knowledge
knowledge is not wisdom
wisdom is not truth
truth is not beauty
beauty is not love
love is not music
and music is THE BEST.

after seeing this opening night, someone told me this movie would become a "cult classic" soon.

if that happens, here's why it would. this is what you would be inclined to call a writer's movie. as if only to test the limits of auto-fellation, writer's produce a creation that revolves around their ideas and nothing more.

the result is plot-centric storytelling, a genre already pioneered and with an established following. characters are developed, but only as inadvertant consequences of actions necessary to advance the story.

watching a good story is like reading a good book, and there is a certain type of audience that both recognizes and appreciates this type of an accomplishment. (I'll give you a hint -- they're the same ones who keep telling you that kingpin is "the greatest movie ever".)

moreover, to have this movie playing in an absolutely ridiculous theater -- with a single room, single movie, single-person staffing, brainwashing tv advertisements, and actual curtains in front of a single screen -- only serves to fuel the stereotype.

I mean, if you couldn't smoke weed in a place like that, where could you? especially if you have a new dugout.

fuck open source

to all open source zealots - listen carefully:

it is not a god damn movement
there is no mission
there is no drama
it is not "free as in speech"
it IS "free as in beer"
and that's all it will ever be.

STALLMAN WAS WRONG
