do you have 22 minutes?

then please watch TALK TO ME! it's a short film documentary about a man, Mark Craig, who accumulated twenty years' worth of answering machine messages, and what he did with them.

sorry 'tisn't embeddable. the Guardian UK wrote an article on the film back when it was shown at a festival in 2007. and many many thanks, once again, to one of the best finders of cool s*&^ on the internet: JeSha!!!

the awesome dancing traffic cop! plus Mo Rocca.

this was on CBS Morning News this weekend.

Watch CBS News Videos Online
other than the fact that i want to go to Providence, RI now, i was surprised to hear how familiar Mo is (and Officer Lapore too) with so many dance terms/names of dance movements...

AlSto, our friend JaHe and i were wondering what rank he was, and it turns out he's a colonel. and also the 12th highest Jeopardy winner...?!

i wish Smaug could see this...

a co-worker sent me the following email today:

Jennifer and Luke were getting very high water bills and could not figure out why. Despite all their attempts to conserve water, the bills continued to be very high. They figured they must have a leak somewhere in their house so they hired a plumbing specialist to investigate their entire system. He could find no problem whatsoever. One day, Luke was home sick and while in bed on the second floor, he heard water running continuously below him. He decided to find out the source of the running water and soon discovered the cause of their problems. He decided to videotape this for posterity… Please watch:
