Goodbye Summer…..

August 30, 2008

I know, I know… I have been downright lazy the last few weeks and have no excuse for my lack of involvement here. I will do better after Labor Day, I promise.

Here are a few items of interest brought to you mostly by readers of this blog. How exciting!

  • First of all, in light of high gas prices and our waning summer, check out this economic road-trip mix care of Britt.
  • Second, my good friend Kevin turned me on to this 45-minute documentary regarding famed director Stanley Kubrick (2001, Clockwork Orange, Eyes Wide Shut, Dr. Strangelove). His eccentricities are well known to movie fans and this film does well shedding a bit of light on his reclusive and obsessive behavior as much as it adds another layer of intrigue to his legend.
  • Third, in this season of high stakes political theater, keep your head level and feed your cynicism by watching The Daily Show at (or on cable). Last week’s episodes from the DNC were great and I can’t wait to see what they do when they role into Saint Paul this week for the RNC. Satire at its best, there is a reason this show keeps winning Emmy awards year after year. (Hopefully they don’t skewer Minnesota too badly, but we deserve it as much as any I guess.)
  • Finally, ride the nostalgia wave provided by the clip below. (Watch six times for maximum funny: one time for each panel!)
