why is it for some folks, messy hair is a cool and attractive hair style, whereas for me it is, uh, just messy hair?

this is pretty cool. ordered joe strummers new album from amazon and it is added to my "digital library" - so i can stream it - listening to it now, in fact...

How Would YOU Take Over the World?

trivia question:
what do linus torvalds (the creator of linux), malcolm mclaren (former punk rock alleged svengali), the wachowski brothers (directors of the matrix) and me have in common?

ok - good night's sleep - jamie's kitchen was mildly entertaining - nice diversion - my backaches - perhaps i forgot about ahimsa a few weeks back and attacked some back bends too aggressively - listening to dido's new cd - which is growing on me - lovely voice - find it very relaxing - not really cutting edge - very adult contemporary - but what the heck, i am a contemporary adult. had some yummy thai cocnut noodles over the weekend that looked like long strands of elastic - tasty - also had a nice juice drink - mango, lime and club soda - yum....

oh yeah, and happy columbus day. on this day, we honor a man who ended up thousands of miles away from where he wanted to go and discovered a place in which there were already people living. just goes to show you, one does not have to be perfect! all kidding aside, what an act of courage it must have been in his time to take off into the unknown as he did.

the faint smell of roasting tofurkeys is wafting over from north of the border.
happy thanksgiving canada.

i PROMISE to go to bed early tonight. blech.

i saw kill bill - first impression - all style and no substance - not necessarily a bad thing though - first part of movie was a bit diappointing - last half though -whoa - what a ride - perhaps kind of a cinematic rollercoaster. i seems that tarantino makes movies about other movies. given martial arts movies, spaghetti westerns and 70's cop shows are rarely considered "art" - how can a pastiche of them be art - on the other hand - collages often make "art" out of found materials. he is the master of making you laugh, and then gasp in disbelieving at what you are laughing about. perhaps one could impose any number of points on it - but i genuinely think that no point is intended...best review i read was that it was a great movie - but upon leaving the theater the reviewer felt nothing - perhaps a triumph of artifice over art...i am fully aware of samuel goldwyn's admonishment "you want to send a message, try western union." but i guess i felt a bit empty too - albeit - thrilled and entertained -though i am ashamed this kind of stuff is entertaining...perhaps the best thing to do is simply experience it in a zen-like way without trying to find a point - as frequently life IS pointless...the fact that i am still talking/thinking about it, i guess speaks of it's merit - but still....

and btw, as lovely as uma thurman is, i really don't need to see her feet for that long...

anyone else who saw it - based on the returns, many of you did - you're feedback?
