somehow i missed out on spy magazine in its heyday. (its not like i was reading the new yorker all that much either.) looks like google books has them all available to see what all the fuss was about.

i get some weird free standard def movie channel over broadcast tv with the crappy digital hd antenna i bought a few months back. (im getting my satellite reconnected tomorrow after six months without. they made me an offer i couldnt refuse that being pay us exactly how much we want.) and though i just saw the last couple of minutes of this it certainly caught my attention. how have i never heard of the magic christian other than its probably not very good?

someone want to bullet point this for me? lucas, maybe? youre a big boy now.

Next Saturday night (i.e. Sunday morning) TCM will again be showing the block of experimental films I mentioned in this thread. Starts with this documentary at 2:00 am, followed by a series of short films, including classics like Meshes of the Afternoon and then Ken Jacobs’ Orchard Street at 3:50 am. Worth a DVR if you’re not a night owl. Schedule.

I think I mentioned this before, but a kid from my (and b.'s) high school (long after we were there obviously) has gone on to be quite a basketball player: Nik Stauskas. He's a guard on the second seed University of Michigan squad, and Big Ten player of the year.

When we were in school the basketball team was pitiful (I played varsity!) but now has become something of a powerhouse. Back in the day we were known for hockey, with 3 players who were there during our years (out of ~400 in the entire school) making it to the NHL. Not sure how these things work, and why they suddenly are good at basketball. Maybe you recruit the right coach? Or just get lucky with a great player and then others follow?

In any case, Go Lions. Or something.
