this week ended up keeping me more busy than i thought it would. on friday, i saw that harry potter flick but since i am probably the last person in the universe to see it, there's no need to review it here. i might add, however, that seeing it in an imax theater was pretty great. all movies should be on a five story tall screen.
my political blogging has dropped off lately. at least it feels like it has. recently, whenever i feel a big political rant coming on, i manage to find someone else posting about it before i get my thoughts out into blogger. once i see someone else write what i was thinking, my will to rant dissipates and i can get on with other more productive activities, like buying the new simpsons dvd set. i guess i could still post on the topic--something short that amounts to a "look at this" line and link to the page that wrote my idea first, but why bother? you people have just got to take responsibility now and then and find your own damn links.
in other news, look at this! via mr. corey i found these videos starring the 19th century swedish playwrite and novelist august strindberg and a helium balloon. (i like "with sulphur and iron" the best)
