Love him or hate him, he gets it.

Looks like America’s favorite left-wing nut is at it again, but give Michael Moore some credit.  His last two documentaries (Sicko, Fahrenheit 9-11) reside in the list of top 3 height grossing documentaries of all time.  His latest film “Slacker Uprising” is slated for release on September 23rd across America and Canada, but this time Moore is borrowing a few tricks from Radiohead by releasing the film for free.

Moore gets it!  His low-budget film ($2M) aimed at young democrats will be circulated in high-definition on servers across the world, beginning at the film’s homepage: slackeruprising.com

Movies will be pirated, so why not give a little back?  Thank you Michael Moore, from all of us on the net.  I highly recommend any content developers to follow Moore’s and Radiohead’s lead and look into releasing your media through a creative commons license.  

The world is changing, lets take the money out of big companies’ pockets and put it back into the hands of hard working individuals where it belongs.  

Moore appears on Larry King Live (CNN) tonight at 9:00 PM, take a gander and open up your minds because this man gets it.

ONE DAY AS A LION is

One Day as a Lion and ANTI- announced a release date for the long awaited self-titled EP from former rage against the machine front man Zack de la Rocha yesterday.  This means if you are one of those people who still buy their music at the brick and mortar, indie shop not big box I hope… then tell them to order this so you can have it in your hands by July 22 (worldwide release date).  This summer you can catch Zach de la Rocha at Lollapalooza (Grant Park, Chicago IL) playing on one of the last few dates with RATM in a few weeks, which I think is well worth skipping work for!  Some things only come around once people, so live life unrestricted and you might end up happier. 

ANTI records: now streaming one song from the 5-track EP, if you are anything like me you’ll love every second of it… besides the ‘being on myspace’ part.  Click here to hear the hooplah.

George Carlin dead at 71

RIP George Carlin

George CarlinGeorge Carlin
“I credit that eight years of grammar school with nourishing me in a direction where I could trust myself and trust my instincts. They gave me the tools to reject my faith. They taught me to question and think for myself and to believe in my instincts to such an extent that I just said, “This is a wonderful fairy tale they have going here, but it’s not for me.”

I’m a bit upset over this, I always wanted to see him perform.  As a linguist in my eyes there was no better, his ability to share with the world so many new ideas about randomness and pointlessness.  He was also responsible for the historical bit on the FCC: seven words (NSFW)  Carlin spoke raw truth.
 

a pink floyd kind of night

Y’know what? I’ll tell ya what.. I enjoy a good movie. and I’ve been wanting to watch see Pink Floyd’s “the wall” pretty much my whole life but friends and others always told me its disturbing and just not good.  Well tonight I am happy to say I can scratch yet another classic off my list..

Sure the wall is boring at times, but its scored beautifully and this type of film direction is totally my style.  Its creepy and nearly everything is meant to mean something yet at the same time mean something else, not to mention it makes you feel like your on drugs.  I would not reccomend watching this movie on drugs, I would also not reccommend this movie to small children.  with that said I loved it! 

so In an attempt to catch up on all the great movies behold the new netflix account!
add me as a friend! ..wait netflix is actually ridding the site of all its member profiles (who needs em anyway right)
 
why was netflix even trying to be social? isn’t that what social network apps are for? get with it!

anyways im looking for reccomendations now, I’m into horror flicks and comedies.  I love watching documentaries and a handful of dramas.  love the indie wes anderson style and epic speildbergs, hate movies with unececcary cameos, unconvincing premises and bad story telling.  most new studio pictures suck!  any suggestions?

favorite movie of all time is full metal jacket
