Keep your fangers crossed. I have an application in for a new apartment – and I’m asking the landlord to drop $50 off the rent if I say I’ll move in for August 1st. We’ll see… I looked at five places today and this one was the last one and I knew it was the right place. It’s a huge one bedroom on Roscoe with hardwood floors. Hardwood floors is something I was really hoping to have – I’d rather dust and mop then feel like I never get the dirt vaccuumed out of carpet. Anyway, it’s a jump in rent but I work at home now so I feel it’s worth it. I should know more by the time I get out of Fahrenheit 911 tomorrow afternoon. I swear – it’s like Star Wars for Liberals or Passion of the Bush!
I wish Moore would publish an annotated and footnoted script to show all the detail and research behind the suppositions he makes. That or someon should make an audio recording of the movie and then transcript that and put it online so everybody can hash out what is true versus what’s inferred.
All I know is that the meatcutters at Jewel were bitching about the White House blocking the FBI’s investigations of Saudis. You know if the butchers know what’s up the shit is really going down.
A big thing to remember when watching documentaries is that they are not always journalism. A movie like Capturing the Friedmans keeps things balanced for dramatic tension… the opposite is a thesis-based film such as Moore’s that presents and advocates one side.
