I don't usually post on Sundays, but I thought I'd try a small one today and see if people actually read it. I watched Narc last night and I felt that it was a surprisingly good movie.
It's about this one cop (potrayed by Jason Patric) who gets discharged for accidentally shooting a pregnant women in pursuit of a criminal and is called back to help solve the murder case of the partner of another cop (portrayed by Ray Liotta). It turns out to be a rather interesting case and what's even better about the movie is how it incorporates their personal lives so well. Go see it if you ever get a chance to.
There were a couple of deaths recently. Johnny Carson died after a long battle with emphysema and though I didn't watch his show I still feel that he had a big impact on the evolution of late night television. You Bollywood fans may already know about the death of Parveen Babi, who starred in a ton of movies and was hailed as really bringing a lot of great style to the big screen.
Now for a couple of oddities. if you want to see the weirdest trailer ever made, check this out. Don't ask me what it means because I have no idea. And I warn you, it's extremely weird and slightly disturbing. The other oddity is this court decision regarding the rights of porn distributors. They decided that it wasn't the responsibility of the state to decide about people's morals, and I think that's a good idea. If you let the courts ban people from doing porn, when will it stop? What people do in the privacy of their home is their business as long as it's not kiddie porn and it doesn't hurt anyone else.
On a last note, the Barnes and Noble on the drag is closing down so I reccomend that you Austinites hurry up and cash in on the bargains because tons of stuff is 50% or 75% off. I got a $23 hardcover Stephen King book for $3! It's definitely worth a look for anyone in the area.
And now for a new meme, Unconscious Mutterings:
