watching a 1/2 hour show on ifc about the 20th anniversary of spinal tap. they just mentioned that all non percussive members of the band were playing bass for the song "Big Bottom". this struck me as particularly funny. also, the original cut was 6 1/2 hours long.
practically giving it away.
solipsism is on the menu at jon favreaus ifc show Dinner for Five but i cant help but stop in for a nibble from time to time.
g4techtv is a station i get with directv. looks to be gamers and gadgets oriented. im just now watching cinematech which looks to be a collection of short form "video game" movies. i guess they could be classified as demos but im not sure if they werent created specifically for this format. obviously they are commercials for new games but the line between animated features and games becomes ever more hazy as a result.
I saw two (air quote) bad movies this weekend -- Shaun of the Dead and Dirty Shame. Shaun had some laughs and was enjoyable junk food. Dirty Shame had some laughs too, but ultimately wasn't as satisfying ... until the theater let out. The best fun was watching suburbanites apologize to their friends for bringing them to such an awful movie. After recent outings (including a guest spot on the Simpsons a few years back), I think they were expecting "campy" Waters. But they got "raunchy" Waters.

"The Director's Director" Wong Kar-wai. I thought "In the Mood for Love" was beautiful. I look forward to 2046.
