Parrot Secrets

I mention the above to everybody I know. $400k in one year for a pdf describing how to take care of parrots? Is that true? What similar thing could you write about that would make you some money?

Attorney General Eric Holder Unable to Say Something Obvious

Why can't he say that radical Islam could be one of the things that motivate terrorists to do what they do? Any ideas?

Netflix Review

Here are some movies I've recently watched on Netflix:
  1. About a Boy: Hugh Grant plays a very shallow guy who comes to realize who he is and eventually makes changes. I liked it. It was pretty funny.
  2. For a Few Dollars More: Classic western. Must see if you like westerns.
  3. The Host: Korean horror/monster film. It was ok. Some of the monster scenes were well done.
  4. I Love You, Beth Cooper: I like the idea of this movie a lot. A complete nerd gives a valedictorian speech that gets everybody's attention, including the girl he silently has had a crush on throughout high school. Hilarity ensues. It's not a bad movie.
  5. The Men Who Stare at Goats: A George Clooney flick. I didn't care for it.
  6. Metropolis: A visually interesting anime sci-fi film. I liked it. It had a reasonable plot and some decent moments.
  7. Much Ado About Nothing: Ok. I don't mean to be offensive. However, this movie is gay. Avoid it. Go watch DiCaprio's Romeo + Juliet instead.
  8. Nerdcore Rising: This documentary is ok. Not the best I've seen recently. It chronicals the first tour of a geek rapper named Mc Frontalot. Imagine a rapper rapping xkcd comics and that's what I mean by geek rapper.
  9. The Outlaw Josey Wales: A classic western. I liked it a lot. One of the better old westerns that I've seen.
  10. Pale Rider: Another classic western. I liked the allusions the movie made to other things.
  11. Planet B-Boy: One of the better documentaries I've seen. It is very well done. Watch it with your sound turned up. It follows teams as they prepare for and participage in a worldwide breaking dancing championship. I know that may sound lame. However, it was actually pretty cool.
  12. Sita Sings the Blues: An animated movie about some mythology from India. It was very well done but I had lots of trouble following what was going on. The characters talked very fast and the movie moved very fast too. Also, I'm not very familiar with the stories it was telling.
  13. Spirit of the Marathon: A good documentary about the Chicago marathon.
  14. The Station Agent: I didn't like this movie very much. Not enough happened. It was essential a character movie with three characters. I think I didn't like this movie for exactly the same reasons I didn't like Lost in Translation.
  15. Timecrimes: I thought the main charater in this time travel movie wasn't believable. He was very dumb sometimes and very smart other times. He probably could have avoided all of his time travel problems if he had just watched Back to the Future a couple of times before the events of the movie. Having said all that, I still kind of liked this movie. It tried. The plot was complicated and interesting.
  16. Waiting for Guffman: I didn't like this movie too much. The cast of this movie has made several movies. A Mighty Wind, Best In Show and This Is Spinal Tap were better.
  17. Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?: A tough old lady buys a painting for nothing. She battles the snooty and arrogant art community trying to prove it is a Jackson Pollock. Her experts come up with pretty good evidence that it is but that doesn't matter to some people.
Oh. I almost forgot. I urge all members of the US Congress to add all the above movies to their Netflix queue as fast as humanly possible, if not faster.

Scores Posted For SA Open

Here are the scores for the disc golf tournament I played.

I urge Congress to "act quickly" and view these scores "immediately".

Why Does Obama Always Want Congress to Act Quickly?

He said the same thing about health care reform.
