I watched the Master a couple of weeks ago. I was actually a lot more interested in Joaquin Pheonix and Amy Adams' characters than I was in the Hoff. He did do a good job, though. It's a pretty creepy movie.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Lotsa basketball this weekend, I've been meaning to see this thing since it came out. I have had the screener I got for when it was being shopped around for an Oscar. Still haven't found myself in the mood. Weird.

Ignorance is not a lack, but a passion.

Not exactly a documentary, but the annual Dimbleby lecture is an institution, and this year Baroness Lane-Fox was awesome.

MITT

Pretty interesting documentary about Mitt Romney's run for the presidency. I'm not a fan of any of these politicians, but I like to know what makes them tick. This doc reveals a Mitt Romney who was actually much warmer and genuine than he came across in his campaign. Seems like a genuinely nice guy, and perhaps that's what cost him the presidency.

I watched one last night on the life of the honey badger. Those little buggers are bad!
