Pet Store by Alexis Rockman

Here's a cool story from Wired about one of my favorite painters, Alexis Rockman. The LACMA has one of his pieces in it's permanant collection. It's on display only some of the time, but is worth checking out in person.

Click here for an explanation of the Greg's Blog™ Rating System
Starsky and Hutch (2004) - Good Good Good - This movie is a lot of fun. I never watched the TV show it is based on, but I think it still stands up on it's own. The cast are all really good and there are some hilarious situations. A few of the jokes were flat and cliche'd, but overall it was a good time at the movies. Plus we saw it at the Mann Chinese Theater which is always a treat.

Finding Nemo (2003) - Good Good - I thought it was pretty good, but not great. After Sean watched this movie over 4 sessions, every aquatic creature went from being called a "wish" to a "meemo." That includes sharks and whales. Visually it's amazing, and perhaps my appreciation of it will increase as I watch it over and over again for the next several years. At least I hope so.

Depp in Once
Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003) - Good Good Good Good - I really love Robert Rodriguez's film making style, especially on what is now the Mariachi trilogy. This movie is complex and action packed, with tons of style and attitude. So many characters are introduced early in the picture that it's impossible to predict how it's going to play out. Johnny Depp is great as a villian/hero, and it's filled with other great performances by Mickey Rourke, Willem Dafoe, Ruben Blades, and Danny Trajillo.

Lost in Translation (2003) - Eh - I know, I'm the only person in the universe who didn't love this movie. But to me it felt like a first act stretched out for an entire movie. I understand that it was a mood piece, but I got bored. Now you know: I like movies with big laughs, big explosions, and big ideas, and period pieces.

Escape from LA (1995)- Eh - This is a pretty awful movie, partially saved by some fun ideas about a post-apocolyptic LA. I wanted to see it because I'd read the screenplay and it was pretty fun, but the effects in the movie and some of the acting was so bad that it just brought me out of the story.

Do you have a kid? Can you get one on a Saturday morning? If yes, you have to check out the Kids Rhythm Club put on at the Remo Recreational Music Center in North Hollywood.

Sean at Remo

Remo opens it's space and provides hundreds of drums and other percussion instruments for mom and dad (oh yeah, and the kids) to bang on. It's led by two nice folks, so it's not a free for all, but rather an interactive jam session. It's great fun an an incredible free community service, and the kids seem to like it too. It's on most but not all Saturdays from 11 to 12. Check the calander here.
