Good.  Pretty sad.

Not really about boko but rather the militias that have formed to fight boko and go around committing mass murder of people with no ties to boko.

mostly informal on why the hell people should do vaccinations. I liked the sets ups against anti-vacinationers too.

Went on a Netflix mini-binge last night:

Tiny the Movie - Not great. About the tiny house movement

Lost Angels: Skid Row is my Home - Great. Explores the history and the current state of L.A.'s infamous Skid Row.

WWE: History - Not much new insight since WWE made it, but it's a nice nostalgia bomb if you were a fan at any time.

This was a fascinating documentary; I recall the WWE (WWF at the time) tried to get it pulled from distribution after cooperating and then not liking the picture it painted of their organization.

Beyond The Mat is great, so is Wrestling With Shadows.

And if you want something really fucked up then watch The Rise & Fall of WCCW (NOT the WWE produced one, this one is from 2005-06 I think). Really great look at early to mid 80s wrestling in Texas and what happened to the Von Erichs

Thanks for this. I've always been distantly fascinated by pro-wrestling, so this was a really enjoyable watch.

Started watching "The Jinx" after seeing the headlines from yesterday (damn viral marketing, you win this time!), and I also saw that HBO has an documentary adaptation of "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief" coming out in a weeks. Should be good.

Did a yearly rewatch of Restrepo. Rawest documentary on the war with the Taliban and a great look at the effects of PTSD on platoons that constantly saw combat everyday. You can watch it on Netflix but I think I originally saw it on Youtube years back.

Restrepo is one of my favorites of all-time.


Came across a doc called "Twin Sisters" last week. Its about Chinese twin girls that were adopted by two sets of parents from different parts of the world. It shows how they both grow up and what happens when they meet. Lots of interesting angles about nature/nurture and will definitely make you emotional.

Inside: Lego is a shallow work, but it's only 30 minutes long so there's really not much room for depth.

Worth a gander to see how hilariously wrong the company was about things, however. (e.g. They assumed girls didn't like building and marketed a lot of unsuccessful prefab sets to them. This product strategy was, of course, not founded upon any market research whatsoever.)

Yeah, they’re still really, really wrong about marketing to girls. The Friends line was goofy-colors, and they’re just trying to repackage it with more of the same with Elves. I mean, c’mon: just pop out more female minifig hairstyles; hell, include them as optional pieces, since there are always a couple “gimme” freebies in any set.

I'm in love with this. It's THE most American thing I've ever seen.



Has it all. The small town origins. The big business. The looks, their fading and the clinging on to them. The money. The hilarious sales pitches. The grandeur. The acting like you care about people while thinking of everyone as mooches. The fat kids. The insane number of kids. The fast food. The bling. The neon lights. The kitsch. The gambling. The BIGGEST. The BEST.

 :usacry :usacry :usacry

Edit: The scene starting at around 41 minutes is amazing. Like straight out of a parody.

I enjoyed that documentary a heap. That timeshare douchebag also tried to sue the filmmakers afterward to get edits put in to make them (him) look less bad. He also has had to admit that his campaigning for Bush Jr. was probably a mistake, and Obama’s presidency has been part of what returned him to solvency. Diiiiiick.

We watched it in the Plug.DJ on Sunday, but here's a link for everyone else.

Oh one day you'll find yourself UP TO YOUR NECK in FALSE DRUGS, FALSE SEX, FALSE JOBS, FALSE MONEY, and you'll say "But where's B-Bob?? Where's Bob? You mean..you mean there really is a conspiracy? You mean there really was a Bob? You mean...you mean I COULDA HAD SLACK AND I BLEW IT!"

Listening to serial makes me realize that if I ever got charged with something,  I'd totally be convinced, regardless of innocence, based on my internet postings.  Its like you make 500 jokes about murdering hookers and someone is going to find you weird.

I really enjoyed Serial. It's amazing how it become the most popular podcast of all time. But it makes me feel a little bad for all the other podcasts that have been trucking away for years without a fraction of the recognition. Regardless, I'm definitely looking forward to the second installment this fall. Hopefully we finally find out what Mail Kimp is.

The oldest daughter from The Queen of Versailles family died over the weekend. She was 18. No cause of death yet, but the police reported that she was "found unresponsive in her home" and that they "don't believe it was natural causes" so you can probably figure it out.

I can't tell if this is one of their birth daughters, or the one they "adopted" (were raising); it also sounds like she was in a delicate situation and then bullied. Very sad.
