Pop Culture Nodules

Just some nuggets of thought on
several different items from the

*MTV VMAs--what videos?

*WALL*E--where were the doctor bots?
Were the robots programmed with any
"laws"? Perhaps there were nanobots
working inside the humans, helping
keep processes going. There were no
graveyards on the ship, so the space
cruisers must have been thriving.

*"The Fall"--new movie on DVD from
director Tarsem Singh. This could
have been an M. Night film, but it
actually resonated and seemed worth
the trip. Happier than "Pan's Labyrinth"
by just a bit (double spoiler).

*"Viva La Vida" by Coldplay--got pretty
good towards the middle of the album.

*Palin for VP--I always think of "Michael"
when I hear that last name. Think of his
character's bureaucratic potential in the
movie "Brazil" (probably a Republican in that
one too).

*The Olympics in HD--the visual technology
portrays healthy individuals rather well.
What will the 2009 switch show the world
about the plastic surgeon carved visages
of Hollywood? Time for the HD filters!

*HD radio--with digitized static for free?

*The "Watchmen" trailer looks good--
we will watch the Watchmen.

*Blu-Ray technology--wants to oust the DVD,
but still priced like Laser Discs.
