I hope that red x wasn't going to be some snappy comeback.

This is not entirely movie related, but I found it interesting that the Reuters writer keyed into the fact that the movie was not showing within 30 miles of Crawford.  Crawford is as big as a postage stamp and they probably have to go all the way to Temple or Waco to get any decent groceries or to go to Wal Mart.  

I suspect the small town will be overwhelmed.  Rob, take all the food you think you will need with you.  Take a ton of OFF with DEET.  The last major stop is Waco.  In fact I think the last decent hotel is in Waco too.  I'd bet the media types are going to take all the good ones and I don't know if I would want to sleep on the ground Woodstock style out there.

Thanks for the tips.  If Moore is going to be there and if we go, we'll probably just drive home afterwards.


Another thing I read was that the President was going to spend the time of the Democratic National Convention at Crawford, so who knows, he might accept the invite and bring a lawnchair and a cooler full of Pabst and join y'all.  Oh yeah, I think Waco's dry.  So if you want any of the good stuff, take it with you.

Something's telling me he won't - unless he gets drunk enough to think it's a good idea to head on' down. :)


And politics aside, any movie theater owner who is short sighted enough not to show a "controverisal" movie or whatever their excuse is, is in my opinion crazy.  Look at what this thing has banked so far.  (And everybody knew it would whether they admit it or not)  Both sides of the political fence flock to see it, some mulitiple times.  It is a guaranteed profit center.  That being said I have to admit to having not gone to see it yet.  


I was hoping Rob might video tape it for me when he goes to Crawford...

If you still haven't seen it by the time the DVD comes out, you can always borrow my copy.

lol People have such vivid imaginations.


Hmm, the website is down. No way it could be a problem on my end, or their end. CLEARLY, they've been shut down by the man...

Well now, when dealing with George Lucas, that isn't really all that far-fetched.

Looks like they've run a correction:

Earlier today I reported that fan site JediDefender.com had been suspended after posting unauthorized images of packaging mock-ups from Hasbro's Star Wars: Episode III toys. Fortunately, I was wrong! Their server was down due to increased traffic!

The movie will come even closer Aug. 14, when peace activists plan to show it on a bedsheet in the front yard of a house in Crawford.

That's at the Crawford Peace House purchased by North Texans for Peace, several friends of mine are actively involved with it including my next door neighbor. The house is on the only road you can take to Bush's ranch. The problem is, he always arrives by helicopter and never sees the protests and displays at the Crawford House. I've actually been to it. My neighbor and I went down there right after it was purchased. I will admit, I was a little uneasy with all the secret service agents driving slowly by. Of course, it was new then. Now, the secret service barely pays attention to them. Obviously, this is merely a symbolic gesture. I doubt it will accomplish anything other than "neener neener neener!" (or is it "nanny nanny boo boo"?)

In that case Spiderlegs, do you know any of the email addresses of those guys or if they have a website?  The article doesn't seem to mention if this is official or not and if so when it would happen.  My buddy and I are interested in possibly driving down if it's really happening.

(Oh, and everyone please feel free to call me Rob)

How about a little love for my main man Rene Magritte:





I love lots of stuff from the Renaissance to Constructivism to Surrealism to Dada to Modernism to Post Modernism...etc...

Off the top of my mind I enjoy Rodchenko, Dali, Bosch, Duchamp, Bill Viola, Berninni, and about a thousand other painters, sculpters, photographers, filmmakers, etc...

I remember studying the Pieta for a week in High School, it truly is one of the greatest works of all time



I loved my Humanities Class in 11th Grade.  One of my all time greatest learning experiences...the Greek and Roman Classics, The Renaissance, Architecture, Opera, Classical Music...I wanted to take another class in college but could never fit it in between the Organic Chemistry and Physics and Linear Algebra. >:(

I was hoping someone would mention Hodges...he's doing an Ice Cream Maker Guy Card!!!



I stood infront of that piece for about an hour one time when I was living in Rome.

Stunning.  

But I think Moses (also in Rome) is even more stunning.

Fahrenheit 9/11 took in another $7.2 million this past weekend, bringing its total gross to about $94 million.  Not bad.  

Considering it's almost FIVE times the previous record gross for a documentary, I'd say so.

Yeah, this year the games in Gainsville. Actually, come to think of it, I usualy go to the Florida games, but for the life of me I can't recall last time we beat ya'll.

It dosen't matter anyway, Lou'll whip you guys in a big way come November!

If that happens, Zook will be on his way out.  Like I mentioned earlier, this is tupposed to be the year that his recruiting classes have matured enough to become a solid team and get back into the national title hunt.  If they fall flat again - look for Return of Spurrier rumors to heat up...
