Re: Wathcya watchin'?

I remember seeing the first episode of "Firefly" when it aired, and thinking this was something I wanted to keep up with. My wife had other ideas. She thought it was fluff and trite, and I believe it conflicted with the regular broadcast of something else we watched. I never saw another ep...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

an estate may not always exist...an annuity may be all that is left. Some sort of estate MUST exist when the creator dies, unless the creator was homeless in a ditch somewhere, but we're only concerned with the specific continuing rights to that person's creative works, not his financial worth, and...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

That's funny, Frank, I don't recall your prior comments about a 50 year limit on copyright, and it's something I would have remembered because I have a slightly similar point of view. Of course, I've vanished from here for months on end at times, so I've missed a LOT of what you're written... I've a...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

I'm outraged, Frank, I'm definitely outraged. But (he apathetically added) what's the point? Whether you were motivated to vote FOR Obama (believing his rhetoric of "change" and "hope", like I stupidly did) or AGAINST McCain (fearing another four years of Bush style right wing im...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

David...the face of absolutely fanatical Republican opposition, Obama and Congress passed legislation the American public requested. Also in the face of fanatical opposition from many democrats in congress as well. To their credit, THEY knew this specific plan was NOT what the American public reque...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Hey Steve, this could easily devolve into a semantic debate. I acknowledge that you were addressing Frank's remarks about Chavez answering to his people by pointing out that Obama has done the same. I neither agree or disagree with Frank about Chavez, I honestly don't know enough about the situation...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

What Steve just wrote, right on. I saw all the same misinformation in that article, and Steve amplified on how misleading it is. Speaking as a professional myself, there is only a gray area for those who want to abuse the rights, but the law is pure black and white, and when violated rights holders ...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Um. So does Obama...remember Healthcare??? Oooh, Steve, I couldn't let that one slip by. We did NOT get "healthcare". I am completely on the side of the government guaranteeing health care to all citizens where necessary, but Obama's wretched plan, which I raged against from the start, do...

James Frey? But at least he was forgiven by Oprah. Or Oprah was forgiven by him. Or...or...ah, hell, I wish Oprah would just get her damn goodbyes over with!!!

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Hey Frank, yep, 2D. I wasn't spending more money for the "experience" of 3D without good reason. All the critics were saying it was pretty pointless in "Thor". You know the very best 3D I've seen the past year? It was "How to Train Your Dragon". Superb 3D! Plus it was a...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

"Slings and Arrows" is nothing less than magic! My wife heard about it a couple years ago, and she got the first season DVD. Friggin' amazing! We watched the six episodes across three consecutive nights. Then immediately ordered the second and third seasons. It just got better and better. ...

Re: Wathcya watchin'?

Okay, so yesterday morning the wife and I trekked downtown (San Francisco) to see "Thor" at the old, cold, ugly, soon-to-be-another-Target Metreon multiplex. The ticket counter was empty. Weird. Nobody there, nobody in line, only the lone ticket seller, weaving back and forth on his stool ...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Until I make a significant dent into my own ignorance, I won't assume to know which man is the real genius, but Frank, between Gingrich and Chomsky, all prejudices aside, who would you acknowledge has empowered himself better to have a greater influence in our world? And would you credit that person...

Frank, I don't know about that, but he'd definitely be paying the tab at our next beer bash!
