World's most expensive cities - Jun. 22, 2005

Pummeling NY is getting too easy.

World's most expensive cities - Jun. 22, 2005

Whats interesting about this list is that NY isn't the top in the world, only the top in this country. Tokyo is #1, and Osaka #2. Why on earth would anyone want to raise a family in these places? I'm guessing their not. Yuppies are competing for their piece of the pie and tolerate the 300 sq ft "loft" for 2000 bucks a month.

They can have it.

Throw this one out to Tim Bowling, who is one cool cat.

Brave New World

Wow is this site spooky...


Its a firm in Arizona where buyers can insure their organs. Cleints recieve their organs with no possibilty of rejection once transferred to the patient, the genetic make-up of the organ being identical to the patient's. Takes one to three years depending on the organ's complexity. 150k to just talk to these guys, averaging 1.2 million for the final pricetag. Its alot, but just like CD players, it'll come down. :)

Brazil the Movie , zzzzzzz

Despite the ironically fascist intelligentsia that demands you like this movie or surrender your Mensa membership, I found it quite poorly done and self-indulgent. I found viewing it in 2005 particularly annoying. As Ebert says, this movie views as a free association romp atop of Orwell's 1984. The effects were great for 1985, but that doesn’t wash today. I found myself wanting for computer-generated graphics. The lead actors were convincing, but lacked chemistry. The film is entirely too long, taking over two hours with essentially little plot movement. Yet, it was the inane dream sequences that ultimately ruined the film for me, taking out any tension the main story may have gained.

Additionally, dark humor doesn't play well these days for me. In our post 9-11 world, who has the audacity to laugh while bombs go off in restaurants with victims squirming, or while woman are destroyed by plastic surgery until they pour out of their coffin. Ha ha.

Gillam is a leftist loose cannon, and while I have enjoyed some of his other work (12 Monkeys especially), it’s clear he needs adult supervision in the editing room, and perhaps beyond.
