Today I decided I should compose a manifesto directing the rest of my life. Then I made a mental note to myself (to steal a joke from Pablo) to look that word up later to make sure it meant what I thought it meant. And it did. To quote Dictionary.com: "A public declaration of principles, policies, or intentions."
That should keep me busy for awhile. In the meantime, you may amuse yourselves with this interesting observation by Andrew about how the Hollywood movie industry takes a pendulum swing back and forth between moralism and escapism on a regular basis. This year's Best Picture line-up was definitely in the moralistic vein, almost to an after-school-special degree.
Then, for more light-hearted fare, you can check out the "live action The Simpsons" intro. It's jarring to see real people so perfectly imitating what Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie have been doing all these years, but cool, too. (Found via Adam).
