Saw the original Japanese movie Ringu on Wednesday with a few people, and as Toltec mentioned, the best part was comparing the original to the American remake. (Some scenes were shot for shot. The American version was more gory, and we got an extra subplot to help cover the Japanese acceptance of weirdness more.) All in all, very interesting. I am also pleased with this new propensity to sit around and watch movies with a small group of people. Anyways.
SOME NEWS: Howard Kurtz gives you all the news you need to get angry about this week. Seriously, if you are at all interested in current events, he hits two points here I hadn't seen elsewhere. And, grr. Don't miss today's hot, hot papal news. And, battlefield lasers maybe only five years away. Finally!
