Evolver: The Making of Youthanasia

Nice trip down memory lane... I haven't seen this since I owned it on VHS back in the mid-90s.

From The Back Of The Room

Watched it on amazon instant video. It's about women in the American DIY punk/hardcore music scenes over the last 30 or so years (both behind the scenes and in the bands). I probably would have found it much more interesting if I was even the slightest bit familiar with this type of music; having said that, the biographical elements and social issues held my attention.

The People vs. George Lucas. It's on Netflix.

I tried to watch this, but couldn't get past about 15 minutes. I can't watch most documentaries of this type though.

Easter Island: Mysteries of a Lost World

I don't get what it has to do with pascha, or even Christianity, but in general it wasn't that bad.

Inside Chipotle.

Behind the counter? I really love Chipotle in more ways than I can describe. They really care about what they do, and who their customers are.

Now that's a company I would work for; to wit, I might go start applying there.

Not really a documentary, but since it's a nonfiction feature, I figured it goes here better than the movie thread.

Enjoy! I absolutely loved it, but then I'm a ballet nut.

On a similar note, I've gone back to Agony and Ecstasy: A Year with English National Ballet. Their Glastonbury performance renewed my interest something fierce.

Yep. If there are two women that are ideal to love and make love to, it's ballerinas and fashion models. What a man would not to have Cara Delevingne or Karlie Kloss! What a joy there is in a Russian ballerina, or any ballerina for that matter. Ballet though is not about lust, but about the beauty of the body in motion. But there's a Sherlock Holmes story where Dr. Watson is flirting with the ballerinas after a show and he is telling Holmes about why ballerinas are so desirable.

I saw the first one.  It was ok.  The guy's girlfriend is really annoying throughout the film.  I like the idea of building one of these houses.

Not exactly a documentary but it's more of a movie Biography of a Maronite Lebanese Catholic Monk renamed Charbel.
It's Not exactly Orthodox but they do come close and it is very touching. I love it!
The whole movie is legally for free aswell! The production is amazing. It's in Arabic but with English Subtitles.

Hope anyone who watches it enjoys it as much as i did   ;D

Just watched "Kidnapped for Christ" today. It's basically about abuses at an Evangelical run Behavior modification school.

Sad to say, it wasn't as good as I expected. Still quite a good documentary I must say.

I'm planning to watch "Korengal" next.

Watched one on Netflix last night called "Happy." It was really good and would recommend it to anyone.



from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1613092/
"HAPPY takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. Combining real life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion."

It's the video version of Pacepa's book. Couldn't care less about the sensationalist presentation. That is done just to make the publishing financially viable.


The core of the information is still important, which is that Russia intelligence has always invested more money, time and effort in disinformation than in espionage or even counter-intelligence.

It shows that although it certainly does not have the world-controlling power conspirationists believe, it probably influenced the 20th and 21st century more than skeptics would be confortable with.

Just finished watching "The Summit" on Netflix (thanks for letting me mooch off your subscription, ZZ ;)) - it's about the 2008 disaster on K2. Those poor people had everything go wrong that could go wrong. I definitely recommend it.

"Us and the Game Industry is a film about new thinkers at the new frontier of experimental computer game development. We delve into this untapped world of potential to meet the people who are succeeding in reinventing the medium of game design and challenging the established norms with their finely crafted work. This film explores how their motivation, design process, focus and execution are creating unique and new possibilities of connecting people and providing the possibility for uncharted experiences outside the normal realm of commercial games."

Not as interesting as I hoped it'd be.

NOVA's "How smart can we get"

Fascinating look at intelligence and the brain. From Einstein to savants and people who are suddenly able to play instruments. I've started a new thread here for anyone wanting to talk about it further...
