ChittahChattah Quickies

  • …The list that follows is reassuring for those who crave some repose without the need for an ashram. The “oases of thought” Buzan hears about are commonly: the shower; the bath; the loo; shaving; walking in nature; in bed (before sleep, in the middle of the night, or first thing); looking at water; listening to classical music and long-distance travel, such as running or driving. ..
  • Documentary that follows the lives, history, home life, and motivations of four “characters” on Hollywood Boulevard, people who dress up like Batman, Superman et. al and are tipped for posing for pictures. More than a fascinating look at a subculture, it digs deep into the ordinary aspects of less-than-conventional individuals and raises questions around the Hollywood dream, identity, character and so on. Fantastic.
  • This is an excellent documentary about an endurance competition that pits twenty-four contestants against each other to see who can keep their hand on a pickup truck for the longest amount of time. Whoever endures the longest without leaning on the truck or squatting wins the truck. If I’m not mistaken it’s been out of print for a while.
