NY Times:

Warren Zevon has passed away.  You can sleep now.

Later: Booknotes has the definitive Zevon tribute.  A monumental effort, Craig.

Johnny Depp may sell his gold teeth on Ebay.  Want a piece of Captain Jack Sparrow?

iTunes, facelift for a corrupt industry?  Personally, I find MP3 barely tolerable as a listening technology, even at high bitrates.  AAC sounds like its worse [haven’t heard it].  Which reminds me, I need to think about replacing my receiver at some point in the future.  I’ve always admired NAD ... grossly overengineered.  They come highly recommended to me by my former A/V sound engineer pals.

Very Short Films:

Elevator Moods.  Try “Ghost in the Machine” ... a familiar moment for most members of modern generations.  The elevator is definitely *not* a neutral character in these pieces.  This must have been a blast to film.

The Age of Murdoch.  The article will sour your stomach; beware.

“You won’t be missed.”  Sorry, but yes, they will.  The golden age of Hollywood was *all* about escapism and aggrandizing our war efforts, as we reconstructed from World War II and entered the frightening Cold War era; who do you think you’re kidding?

Text messaging ruining the blockbuster summer.  Nice to have a convenient scapegoat for when your movies simply stink.  Other than banning cell phones in theatres (good luck.), this may raise the quality for all of us.

Cable TV networks pull Schwarzenegger films.  Might I make a suggestion?  “Raw Deal.”  It’s a howler.  So very bad.  My favorite line: “You should not drink and bake.”
