I’m pushing DFTBA Records. Trust me, all the kids doing it. It’s cool. You can start using and stop any time you want.

Here’s the new video thingy about the *Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince* being released in July. ==   ==

Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;) I feel bad this list is late but I was in Vegas, returning Monday night, and I have been playing catch-up. * “A Bug’s Life”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120623/ – The second Pixar feature film release wasn’t […]

Ok, maybe that’s putting it a little harsh. “My festival scheduler”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/festival-scheduler-beta/ may not be _that_ original, but I did sit down with a couple guys from BSide.com a couple months ago, then today received this survey “about” Austin Film Festival which lists at least 3 of my festival scheduler ideas. I don’t hold it against […]

I’m in the Denver airport, on my way back to Austin. I think I came out $100 ahead, speaking from a gambling perspective, but it’s hard to tell because I didn’t keep my spending money separate from my wagering money. This picture (taken on the layover before our flight into Vegas) is little consolation for […]

The Best Vegas Has To Offer

I’m gearing up for a weekend in Vegas, googling and planning, coming up with ideas. I came upon a readers poll of the 2009 Best of Vegas from the Las Vegas Review-Journal. You can probably guess the punchline to this question, but you’ll be flummoxed at the follow-up. According to the readers of the Las […]

Mistake in “Juno”

I hate to be that guy — no, I don’t — but, after seeing *Juno* over a dozen times, I feel I must draw attention to a “glaring” set of errors in “the script”:http://www.scribd.com/doc/2251012/Juno-Script and hence the movie, all in one phrase. I’ve repeated this quote several times with an admitted ignorance to the object: […]

Poem – Kenneth Koch Recording – Amy Krouse Rosenthal Kinetic Typography – Alan Lastufka I’m not sure if Koch is right, but it makes me think. Like the things that “Levitz”:http://www.powells.com/biblio/0061234001?&PID=27398 or “Gladwell”:http://www.powells.com/biblio/0316017922?&PID=27398 talk about, it seems to make sense at a 30,000 foot view (or what I call “an economics level”), but there are […]

Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;) * “Fargo”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116282/ – Any Coen brothers movie remastered for Blu-Ray is a must, and this is no exception. I can’t wait to see the vast expanses of ice and snow, with sharp splatters […]

For those of you who have seen “The Room” including a Q&A with Tommy Wiseau…as I did with several people at Alamo Drafthouse tonight.

Dear YouTube Generation- All the way back in 1997, I hosted a page of videos on my web site created using cutting edge technology. They were about 1% the size of the 3-4 minute vlogs we love today, and I was only able to afford hosting them because I was friends with the guy who […]

Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;) * “Big”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094737/ – I don’t think I’ve seen all of this since it was released in theaters (20 years ago) but I remember it was Penny-Marshall-and-Tom-Hanks-funny. * “The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421715/ […]
