The Black Hawk War, Or, How To Demolish An Entire Civilization And Still Feel Good About Yourself In The Morning, Or, We Apologize For The Inconvenien

Aiya, I'm at the Apple Store again today. Sheesh. The speakers are acting up. But they're being way stealth about it, like working right before I drive there and then not 30 minutes later. Eesch. There is absolutely no reason why I have to be in the way north west Plano area, except for this. OK, waiting.

Been trying to work on this a little. A Japanese designer guy made a template for the huge Nike Dunk shoe, and you can cut it out and make a paper model of it. The thing is to work your colorway expertise and see if you can design a good one. It's pretty hard and I've been relegated to markers really, b/c I don't know how to modify pdf files. Computers confuse me. The file. The guy's website. He made some pretty good ones.

Watched Around the World In 80 Days with the familia, '56 version. I figured it'd be good since it won an Oscar, but I am wrong again. Either be bored to tears by "classic movies" or disillusioned and let down by the new ones. Well, I am set to watch Crash today at the Angelika, should be good.

-- Man, watching Crash reminded me of some of the better reasons why I watch movies. I now realize that me saying "every American should watch it" is a pretty naive statement. Rather, those who can afford to spend big bucks going to the theater are the the ones who would benefit from the lesson learned. An honest and emotional social commentary on racism, prejudice, sexism, etc. Geez, I cried like the whole way home. --
