Hi,

rose has sent you a link to "Video about quest to get Dalai Lama to carry Olympic torch" on Boing Boing.

old fort western



our friend Crazy Mike made this photo animated short about Old Fort Western in Maine. he also received a threaten letter from Old Fort Western asking him to take down the video and citing, incorrectly, youtube's terms of use prohibiting showing the work of a third party (this film is obviously made by Mike). they also had the audacity to be a jerk and talk shit about mike's short. watch the video (which is awesome) & learn about how OFW is haunted by the ghost of Benedict Arnold.

if you feel so inclined, you can read the email mike received asking him to stop showing the video on his page, and, since mike's included the contact info for the complainer, you can chastise them for stomping down artistic expression, restraining free speech and not respecting intellectual property ideas. and, tell them they shouldn't be ashamed of housing the ghost of america's most famous backstabber.

eclipse

did you see the eclipse last night? I hear it was rainy in richmond, but in DC the sky was clear and cold and Saturn was out with the moon, too. I watched it thru the bar's skylight with a table full of hippies who'd just see deepak chopra at the bookstore who were discussing great spiritual truths. they'd just bought me a drink in exchange for 'putting their names in the credits of my first movie' and as congratulations for my moving to NY. i didn't have the heart to tell them it'd be a long while before my film, so, thanks for the drink, table 18.

Earth eclipsed Sun's light on the first full moon of the lunar year. surely this is a good sign? a restart of 2008 which has already been rough for so many of us? A beginning of refreshing change?



if you're interested in some refreshing change, our apartment may be available for you in DC.
