Thursday in San Anselmo

San Anselmians try to negotiate the new layout; mass confusion ensues.

I spent a few hours last night watching "The Departed" by Scorcese. I get the sense of him approaching his investors who agree to give him money only if hecontinues to remake mean streets with only slight variations and more stage blood. Also that he has been assigned Leonardo De Caprio as a cellmate for the rest of his sentence, where one thinks he would be better served by a young DeNiro or Keitel, if there were any. Not to diminish the craftsmanship of all involved, which is at anexceptionally high level. But therin lies the disappointment; the subject matter of these stories don't deserve this much attention; these thugs are by nature uninteresting, and any level of artistry if it remains authentic, will always reveal the simple mindedness of the subject matter.

The Time Has Come

It's time that i start foisting my opinions on my fellow earthlings!
i usually spend hours lavishing my musings on my friend Stuart, who has among his many appetites the urge to engage in seemingy endless philosophical banter.
Well, that's all well and good, but now I think it's time for broadening the circle to include the unsuspecting-- perhaps even to include--You!
