A few weeks back I had the pleasure of talking with Lawrence Lessig. He was kind of enough to take time out of his busy schedule to sit and talk about his newest book “Remix – Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy.”

Here’s one from the b-movie vault. Remember seeing this for the first time when I was 12 – late night on some bad VHS copy and thinking it was kick ass.
Been playing with the Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player and the $99 device is impressive. Simple setup – just need a USB drive and a mac or pc. The device enables you to view / listen to a wide range of still, video, and audio formats via the comfort of your living room. 42”plasma + WD TV = tons of media fun
Finally LAGTFS is released on DVD. Lost in the vaults of Paramount for years. Starring a 15 year-old Diane Lane. Members of the Clash and Sex Pistols stand in as band members. Interesting depiction of the punk movement from a feminist POV.
Interesting doc on copyright. featuring girltalk, RJD2, Santagold and Danger Mouse.
One of my favs of the year. unexpected in so many ways. nice play on the vampire genre.
Staring Anthony Perkins and Tuesday Weld. Cult classic out of print in the US but worth a viewing if you get a chance. A drifter who insist he works for the CIA hooks up with a highschool cheerleader who’s father owns a lumber yard. Arson, murder and mayhem ensue.
On the flight to Copenhagen last month, I had the chance to view Billy Wilder’s 1960 classic, The Apartment. The movie fires on all cylinders -strong performances, great dialogue and Jack Lemon’s comedic timing is a thing of beauty.
