A while ago I rented an indie movie called "13 Tzameti". It’s black and white and subtitled in French but well worth the watch.

The story revolves around a young guy, hard up for cash. He opens a package intended for someone else and follows the instructions inside. Unfortunately this results in him being forced to participate in a variation of Russian Roulette.

It’s a small movie, simply done that belies the incredible tension contained in some of the scenes. Recommended.

Regardez fixement l’ampoule!!!

Random stuff. Machinery, wheels, buckets, animals, wire, feed, and the occasional sharp metal spike. One summer we came across a large hard-plastic tube. It was about 18" in diameter and about 8′ long. It curved through about a 45 …

The other night I watched the 2005 movie “Stay” with Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts and some other guy (Ryan Gosling). The only reason I watched it is that so many people come to this site looking for an explanation of that movie. Unfortunately this movie has little to no plot and really doesn’t need an explanation in my view.
*** SPOILERS ***
The movie opens with a brutal car crash in which Ryan Gosling’s character is not hurt at all. This is your first clue that something is awry. If you’re …

A quick bloggy blog: I’m currently reading “Be Dangerous on Rock Guitar”. Not a bad book, considering I’ve never had any lessons this is the sort of thing that gives me just enough theory without turning me off entirely.
Folks laud over The Guitar Grimoire series and they are an excellent and complete resource but for my purposes they’re just too much.
The latest DVDs I’ve watched are The Godfather II which in my opinion is better than the first one. It also features Joe Spinell as Willy Cicci. You’d never …
