The best day of the year

What is the best day of the year? I am sure that many of you think that this is up for contention or a mere matter of opinion. Nope, it's not. It is the day which is more of a day than any other day. The Last Sunday in October-day, of course! That is the most marvelous of days in which the regular 24 hour day magically becomes 25 hours long! So for all of you complainers, workaholics and procrastinators carpe that extra hour on Sunday and use it well.

Consider this a throw-down of the gauntlet to all those other scant 24 hours days to beef themselves up a bit...oh yeah, and change your clocks back one hour this Sunday morning, or you will be really early to everything.

Hard Candy

This has got be one of the darkest, bleakest movies I have ever seen. I will leave it to you to watch it or not (though be warned, it is very gruesome) but the thing that bothers me about the movie is the appearance of moral equivalence. The producers of this movie want to give the appearance of a dilemma when really there is none. The movie is very finely acted (and I would be very surprised if Page did not get a best actress nomination out of it), but at it's core is numbing and slightly boring. After a half an hour, you have basically seen all there is to see.

All I need is a soundtrack

I saw A Beautiful Mind last night. It was a solid movie, with the best part being that I stopped the movie half way through, kind of disappointed, only to realize that I was just at the fulcrum of the whole flick. I have decided that if you put James Horner (or any relatively adept score composer) to anyone's life it would be interesting. I think Saturday Night Live has spoofed this idea before, but it is quite true.
