Relics: Einstein's Brain

I think I've finaly found the source of a clip used in Telepopmusik's "Dance Me". I just think how the old guy says "microscopic" is hilarious. I think now I'll have to track down and watch Relics: Einstein's Brain, which appears to be the source of this clip.

Movies: Love Stinks

On recommendation from one of my new co-workers, Eric, I need to check out Love Stinks. Just a personal note.

Update/Review: Garden State

I finally went to see Garden State last weekend while I was back in Appleton. It wasn't what I expected. Not that this is a bad thing, I just misread the film somewhat. Natalie Portman's character was a little more oddball than I imagined. I guess it was more realistic though. The illicit drug theme threw me a little too. It left me a bit uneasy. I sure hope this stuff isn't going on in my home town :-) . The soundtrack was quite good, which is what really caught my attention in the trailers.

All-in-all, I found I was able to relate to the storyline at least in a small degree. It addressed a concern that I've had about anti-depressants: They eliminate ALL emotion, not just sadness. From experience, I can imagine how horrible it would be to live without significant emotion for most of of a person's life.

I still say it's probably better as a date movie, so go get yourself one. :-)

Napoleon Dynamite

Napoleon Dynamite looks hilarious. Sadly, I have to admit, I can kind of relate to this guy as well :-).

Hopefully I can catch it this next week.

Garden State

It seems really odd to me to be posting this here, but I just can't stop thinking about this film and wanted to say some things about it. I haven't seen it yet, but the trailer gives me goosebumps like few films have. Zach Braff has this geek quality that I think kind of rings familiar to me, and of course Natalie Portman has this almost innate quiet innocence in her appearance. The plot of this movie just sounds so moving, and I could really go for a good emotional movie right now. Too bad I'd look like a total dork (too late) going to see this movie alone.

While looking for any info I could on the release of this movie in my area, I happened upon Zach Braff's Garden State Blog. It's neat to hear the director/writer/actor talk directly to his fans. I just may have to give Scrubs a second chance, especially with the appearance that Heather Graham made on the show. I loved her in Swingers.
