Roymond, I think Ken is heading to Seattle for Spudfest but Erin and I will probably be in Berkeley if you want to try to meet up in the East Bay. We'll probably be unpacking since we just moved so we would want to meet in Berkeley if possible. PM me if you're interested and I'll give you my cell ph...

MC Frontalot, SF, Mar. 29

MCF is playing at the Edinburgh Castle in the city, 10pm, $7, or so his Web site (http://www.frontalot.com) says. I think Ken and Erin and I will probably go. Yook, will you be there? Blue, are you drumming for him as usual or is he too famous for that now? ;) Any other Bay Area SF! folks want to go?

Safe travels/travails, Sean. If you're passing through the Bay Area and need a place to crash you're welcome up here any time. And thanks for the lyrics that one time!

"Air Guitar Nation" looks good:

Yeah, the characters were great and Schwartzman was hilarious. Billy Zane was entertainingly cheesy, too. I kept thinking, "You should listen to your friend Billy Zane." I liked all the great extras on the DVD, especially the on-set documentaries made by the director's mom, sister, cousin, etc. It w...

I've been digging that song a lot lately, too. It seems like the poppiest song I've heard by them. The synth part is awesome, though bordering on disco-y at times.

CQ

B+ Just rented and watched this last night, and it was a lot of fun. Roman Coppola writes and directs a movie about an American film maker who's editing a cheesy Barbarella-esque sci-fi flick and windws up getting to finish it after the director is fired. He's also struggling with his relationship ...

I vote Han Solo, because of the fact that he's got a star ship and a laser blaster. Indy is cool, but I don't think his whip would be a match for Han's futuristic technology from a long long time ago.

San Francisco would absolutely win. It could use the Golden Gate Bridge as nunchuks. Then it could use the Bay Bridge as a whip. The Transamerica Pyramid would definitely come in handy, too.

Erin and I saw it a while ago and both liked it a lot. I'd give it an A- . In terms of comparing it to Brokeback Mountain, I think the difference for me was the quality of the acting. I could watch Phillip Seymour Hoffman portray Capote in quiet moments and it would be compelling, and the same goes ...

What Roymond said. The biggest deal about it, I think, is that people can write code that makes your Web browser request some more content in a way that doesn't ncessarily cause the whole page to reload. So you can have a Web e-mail client, for example, that is all on one page which only loads once....

I think it's still too difficult to code for that to happen anytime soon. At this point anybody who's willing to code up that much JavaScript, without the use of a good editing environment, which still doesn't exist as far as I know, would hopefully be smart enough (like the Zimbra people) to serve ...

So far the most experience I've had with it was when I had to dig into an Ajax Jabber client (http://jwchat.org/) for work. Other than that I've done some dynamic loading of content into a div using dojo.io and some other XmlHttpRequest wrappers. I really want to try out more of the dojo toolkit, an...

I vote both. It seems like decent Fenders can often be had for less than decent Gibsons (ignoring the Squire/Epiphone brands) so it might be easier to start out with a Strat or Tele, then get an LP or SG later on.

I don't think Erin and I are going to get ours done, for a long time if ever. We came down with colds at the end of last week and started moving to a new apartment yesterday and her parents are going to be in town this weekend, etc. etc. etc.

I just watched this and thought it was pretty bad. Half the time it was so bad it was funny, but the other half was just plain bad. It was a little hard to identify with Ewan McGregor's main character because he had to act like he was mentally only 10-15 yrs old. That made him kind of annoying to me...

Repo Man

A+ A cult classic and one of my all time favorites. I just made Erin watch it for the first time, on a new DVD release that has all sorts of awesome extras, unlike the original DVD release. Emilio Estevez is really great as a stupid, obnoxious punk, no surprise. Harry Dean Stanton is awesome, too. ...

Wow, that compilation is quite a trip. It's like a stream of consciousness from a person with many different personalities. It sounds like it stops at Roymond's entry for "I'm Not Impressed", though, when the archive seems to indicate 7 further SFO entries after that. What happened?
