Jen -- Pina is so great. Aside from the excellence that is Tanztheater Wuppertal, Wenders' use of 3-D makes for one of the first live performance films that comes close to giving a moviegoer a real feel for seeing it in person. Pure love.

-80 in Alaska last night. A new record. Not just for the day - ever.

I highly recommend the blog mentioned in the Taco Bell story for anyone interested in sanitation, epidemiology, dining out, or queasiness in general. Solidly reported but irreverent.

Pina looks fantastic... but does it have to be 3D? Other than an excuse to coerce an extra couple bucks out of me, does it enhance the film in any way? (99% of the time, the answer is 'no'.)

If Gingrich wins, he'll launch a multi-billion-dollar project to turn brain cells into skin cells.

I was mesmerized by Pina. Saw it about a month ago and I still sometimes do the Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter dance when I walk around my apartment. Odd. Beautiful. And mesmerizing.
