I’m off to the South America for my continuing work on Juan Valljo’s documentary Amazonia. I won’t be posting here, but (hopefully we’ll have an internet connection) you can follow our Facebook page for updates on the shoot. We’ll be exploring more urban areas in the Amazon River Basin, so I expect to encounter a different kind of wildlife!
See you in the New Year!
PS – Go see The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. It’s the best movie to see before you go off to spend New Year’s Eve at a Colombian border town.

Tom Laughlin, known for playing counter-culture action hero Billy Jack, died at age 82. He was a badass.

From Variety, the Tagalog language heist movie Metro Manila, directed by Britain’s Sean Ellis (Cashback), took home awards for film, director, and achievement in production from the Moet British Independent Film Awards.
I honestly didn’t expect this from Sean Ellis. I remember him for that movie about the mopey guy and all the boobies. But this looks kind of badass.

What? The Nikopol Trilogy is one of my favorite comic books ever, and I still resent the U.S. Postal Service for losing my copy of it when I moved from San Francisco back to New York. The idea of the sport is silly, but awesome – which is exactly why I need to start training.

We humans are experts at welcoming the robot apocalypse with open arms. So many of us are used to operating on mindless autopilot we don’t really care who’s in charge as long as we can get the beloved consumer goods we shop for.
So give a big hug to Amazon.com and its impending delivery drones! Not only are we buying our products written by a computer, on a computer, over a website that gives us suggestions for what we ought to buy, but soon we won’t even have to worry about interacting with those pesky humans who delivery those smiling, brown boxes to our doorstep. All Amazon needs to do is get rid of those weak homo sapiens working in its warehouses, and the world’s largest online retailer will be completely inhuman!
The next step: robot consumers, so humans will be completely removed from the equation. Now, that’s utopia.
