Bears and Bulls

By coincidence I recently managed to catch two acclaimed documentaries of 2005 over the weekend. Grizzly Man was broadcast on the Discovery Channel, and I’m reviewing the DVD of Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room for Mindjack Film. Both revolve around men who became so myopic and deluded in their lives’ missions that their worlds come crashing in on them. The Enron film is quite slickly produced and enthralling (and the story is still being played out with the head honchos currently on trial!). I was also captivated with the unique way director Werner Herzog tells the story of Timothy Treadwell in Grizzly Man. As the film unfolds, it becomes obvious that Treadwell (who died of a bear mauling in 2003) saw himself as something of a Crocodile Hunter with bears, the star of his own magnificent adventure in the Alaskan wilderness. In reality he was a class-A fruitcake. While interviewing Treadwell’s friends and acquaintances, Herzog occassionally leaves the camera on too long, which underlies that fact that people instinctively perform in that setting whether they’re conscious of it or not. In sum, you get a well rounded portrait of a supremely odd, complex guy. Both are definitely recommended!

New in the Store: Perky Bird

This perky bird graces a couple of new items at the scrubbles store. I have it on a child’s baseball jersey and a jr. raglan, but it can be placed on anything by request. Want it on a thong? Sure thing.


Poppin’ and Lockin’ Is a New Way of Talkin’

WFMU’s Beware of the Blog has the full soundtrack for Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (among other odd things) available for download. p.s. A Kangol hat tip to anyone who can identify the song I quoted in this entry’s title.

Frank Rich, Are You There?

An interview with Frank Rich, The New York Times onetime theatre critic turned political columnist. More accurately, a decent, short interview lies buried in there underneath the interviewer’s ingratiating back stories and name dropping. Come to think of it, all of the Media Bistro weblogs suffer from the same overwhelming “ain’t I clever” smugness. Blecch.

On second thought, just skip it and watch these Electric Company clips instead.
