Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

this gives me hope

is it possible the us supreme court is somehow maintaining its integrity?

U.S. Courts Won't Hear Schiavo Case

CLEARWATER, Fla. - A state judge and the U.S. Supreme Court refused Thursday to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo, leaving the brain-damaged woman's parents with only the slimmest hopes in their fight to keep her alive.

(snip)

Gov. Jeb Bush's request seeking custody cited new allegations of neglect and challenges the diagnoses that Schiavo is in a persistent vegetative state, but Pinellas Circuit Judge George Greer wasn't convinced and declined to hear Bush's arguments.

packing is good because you find things you had carefully hidden

Do you know what these are?



If not you hold no real Geekness. If you do, than you are jealous because I own them. Hahahahaha!!!!!!

John McTiernan

"The hero is not the protagonist in action movies, he's the antagonist. The villain wants to change the world, and the hero just tries to stop him." -John McTiernan, director of Die Hard, in this month's Wired.

He's one of several big-name movie directors who are now apparently making video games instead. Which is fascinating in its own right. But that quote struck me as being interesting and pretty accurate.

Barry Bonds: out for the season? Out forever? Last year we sucked because we were still paying Rob Nenn's salary. If this is it for Bonds, we'll be in same boat for 2005 AND 2006. Fuck.

When in Doubt, Blame Someone Else

I love these guys.
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld on Sunday used the second anniversary of the American-led invasion of Iraq to answer the most tenacious criticism of the war effort - that the Pentagon did not commit sufficient troops to the major offensive or to stability efforts after Baghdad fell.

The fault, Mr. Rumsfeld contended in two appearances on television talk shows, rested with Turkey, a NATO ally, which would not give permission for the Fourth Infantry Division to cross its territory and open a northern front at the start of the war in March 2003.

incredibly short review of Steamboy

-some really cool design and visuals.

-too much Akira-esque screaming about the philosophy of science in highly simplified terms during improbable explosions.

-too much like Miyazaki not to compare them. The design completely measures up and maybe one-ups Miyazaki. The character development doesn't measure up, and the animation itself, especially the way things and people move in flight, doesn't come close.

Anyone else?

Um... let's think this one through, smart guy.

One staple of far-future science fiction novels is the idea of the human race adrift in the cosmos, our home planet destroyed far back in some murky past. Sometimes the Earth's destruction is blamed on a hostile alien race or freak astrological event, but more often the blame is placed on our own shoulders: scientists experimenting with lab-created black holes had a little accident leading to the black hole sucking down our planet. There is often an implied moral lesson to this backstory. Like, LET'S NOT START FUCKING AROUND WITH BLACK HOLES!

From the BBC: "A fireball created in a US particle accelerator has the characteristics of a black hole, a physicist has said.
It was generated at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in New York, US, which smashes beams of gold nuclei together at near light speeds.
Horatiu Nastase says his calculations show that the core of the fireball has a striking similarity to a black hole."

Steamboy opens tomorrow

This is the second movie from the director of Akira. Yeah; apparently he's been working on this one ever since. Previews look very cool. Let's see it and post reviews and comments here.

Here it comes

This is a blog for a group of friends to post whatever we want. A way to stay in touch, to share ideas and observations and stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Photos. Ideally at least a few of us will post at least once a week or so, and ideally no one will take over and post way more than everyone else (you can always get your own blog, homie). Here we go. Have fun.
