Bronx Science came to visit Connecticut schools. They first stopped by Yale, then Wesleyan, and finally Trinity. Great seeing Eric again and I apologize for embarassing him because I basically brought all my friends to mob him. Hehe. I managed to take a picture with him sometime along the tour. Yes, I stalked their tour. It was good seeing some guidance counselors. Eric was also able to meet up with Angela at Yale.
Eric was gracious enough to order a Logitech QuickCam 3000 for me.
So friend me on Oovoo (mete23), Skype (mete23), or Google video chat!
I think Charles was trying to sing to me…not really
Ari, I’m super cool. But I have to say that your assorted Sharpie Highlighters are amazing. I wish I had a set of those.
Elton John’s Rocket Pictures will be making a Pride and Prejudice spin off with aliens. No joke, aliens. It will be titled…drum roll please… “Pride and Predator!!!” The screen play is written by Andrew Keamble and John Pape. Will Clark will be directing it. The movie will be about the normal happenings of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet until a seven foot tall alien crashes into Meryton and starts killing the townspeople. David Furnish, one of the co-producers of Rocket Pictures said:
“It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect”
I think Jane Austen should come out from her grave and whack this production to death.
I watched an unforgettable documentary last night.
Promises is about seven children, ages 9-12, living in Jerusalem or the West Bank. The director, B.Z. Goldberg, followed their lives for four years and asked them how they felt about the Middle East conflict. It is a bit frightening to see how ingrained religion is for them because it comes to a point where both sides hate each other and the children want to see the demise of the other nation. The children’s behavior and understanding of the situation are representative of adults and world leaders who are currently involved in the turmoil. Each child represented a social class or a certain religious group so there were perspectives from all sides. Even within countries, there were varying solutions to peace or war.
The climax of the movie was when the director asked the children if they’d like to meet each other. I won’t reveal what happens but it was very touching on so many levels. (Not saying that everyone become happy sappy friends-that didn’t happen) I really want to know how these children are doing now. They are actually older than I am by a two years or so.
But, Israel needs to get rid of those checkpoints bordering Jerusalem and the West Bank. Maybe moving the Israelis living in the West Bank settlements back into Israel might be a good start towards peace. Violence begets violence and it is an endless, escalating cycle.
