In 2004, Shane Carruth made one of my favorite movies... "PRIMER".  It was created for $7000, so it's not surprising that most people have never seen it.  It's one of the best takes on time travel that you'll ever see.  If you are at all interested in clever, independent, science fiction, you should give it a watch.

Sadly, I figured it was his only film.  I guess I couldn't complain because most of us never get the chance to release any spectacular art, so if he did nothing else, he'd still have one up on 99% of the population.  

I was wrong.  There's a trailer out for his new film "UPSTREAM COLOR".  It's gloriously confusing and indefinably unsettling, which is another way of saying that it looks fantastic.

PS - Shane Carruth is also selling DRM free copies of "PRIMER" on his website.  If you dig it, support an independent artist and buy it.

I think you might dig it. It's very heavy on mumbly engineers bullshitting as they would in real life while exploring pretty cool time travel issues.  I think that people tend to love it or find it boring.

A small sample of the hard cider that I'm brewing. Born of a custom cider blend from Delaware Valley College. Spiked with a little extra sugar, it's currently sitting at a beautiful 11% ABV! Ready to be bottled soon and aged a bit. Then it's gonna make some heads swim!

Look forward to a tasting, my friends!

I saw an "OBAMA 666" sign this morning.  I'm not sure whether it's for or against him.

However, I'm going to vote for a 3rd party candidate because unlike the rest of the country, i'm not a rube.

Still no power. But i'm sitting at LEAF, drinking a Fort Collins Incredible IPA, charging my phone, and tethering my tablet to my 4G hotspot. Technology FTW. If you're wondering, the soup is beef and barley and i'm not going to apologize for my food & drink pic!

I saw this LA Times headline on Google News.

I guess the "Giant leap for mankind" was only possible because Neil was wearing his Air Jordan's!

The main ingredient in eggs is eggs.  Also, eggs contain eggs, so if you're allergic to eggs, you shouldn't eat eggs.

Hey, it's another fun little interactive web app that reinforces one of my favorite ideas.  That the scope of space is impossibly huge, nothing is important, and we're all stupid and small.  But hey, let's lob bombs over a few miles of the desert right.  That's a good use of our time and effort.

The cellular phone light has grown dimmer low these many years. It has been a harsh winter but not without precedent. Though sustenance is scarce, I fear mainly for the health of my family. I'm a hearty soul with strong constitution and I feel that I shall prevail through the worst. I do not know what the future holds but should the the union army call on me, I am ready to stem the vicious tide of the confederacy.


Sincerely,

Buford L. VanAuken

Tonight we shall see if Buford is thrust back into the 21st century, or if he is left with the plight of penning another letter by candlelight.  He has heard tale of a miraculous invention by a man named Edison.

I may not have power, but I've got propane, 3G, and an Asus Transformer Tablet.

That's "HD Widgets".

It's not the most original take on a clock/weather widget, but it's fairly customizable, plus it looks and functions really nicely.  The tablet layout is very nice.  Tapping on the weather brings up a great detail view with a lot of info.  I actually run a variation of the same widget on my phone.

I'd write something about the presidential debate but the Onion beat me to it.
