Tech Transitions, Big Fish

Today is a day for building my chair, doing laundry, organizing bookmarks, and trying out Linux 2.6.1. To prepare for the inevitable struggle with advanced technology, I have bookmarked the current 59 tabs of webpages I'm reading, and will get back to them as soon as is humanly possible.

I saw Big Fish last night. Cam has told me before that there are movies that just have something about them that is rare to see since when we were kids. This is such a movie. In many ways, it is a story about telling stories - a son who wants to reconcile the facts with the fiction about his father's tall-tale-telling life, as his father is dying of cancer. I'll leave the details up to you to discover, since it is a movie that must be seen to be truly understood.

Let it be said - Ewan McGregor still has it, Helena Bonham Carter still has it, and Tim Burton is one of the greatest directors on Earth. This is the first movie I can recall seeing by him that is not "trademark Burton creepy". It was simply amazing.

See y'all when the computer is ready to go back up.

    Remember: the man who played Richard M. Nixon in Frost/Nixon is the same man who played Skeletor in The Masters of the Universe.
