"National feeling, which up to now was regarded as something lofty and beautiful, has instead become like a spiritual syphilis that has destroyed the brains, and it grins out through the empty eye sockets with moronic hate."

We're famous!

We appear for a few seconds during Major Nelson's video on Xbox Live about Video Games Live in Seattle. We're next to the Luigi in the crowd just before the Halo part at the end. If you were sitting with us then you appear as well. :>

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search or other search functions.

Hmm... well the first should be ridiculously easy for 95% of the people who might read this. ;) The rest are mostly in their original languages.

1. "It starts. You think you know a guy..."
2. "これわ べんづり です"
3. "You lie, she is not." "I beg your pardon?" "I said, 'July is hot.'"
4. "Empires crumble, republics founder, but fools go on."
5. "No, mujer. ¡Cómo voy a gastarme medio millón en un Chanel auténtico, con el hambre que hay en el mundo!... yo lo único que tengo de verdad son los sentimientos y los litros de silicona, que me pesan como quintales."
6. "Combien de couples, par exemple, sont-ils en train d’avoir un orgasme à cet instant précis?" "15!"
7. "Angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night."
8. "ねこ... ねこ ばす!?"
9. "Because you just know when it goes really big... and the camera goes like out of the roof... and you just know it's going to end. I hate that. I would leave just after the next to last song... and the film would just go on forever."
10. "Buenas noches señores y señores con ustedes Andrea Caracortada ofreciéndoles en exclusiva lo peor del día."
11. "Zoom in on my empty wallet." "Touché."
12. "Didn't you see their video on MTV?" "No, I shot my TV."
13. "Our bees make honey, but your flies make shit."
14. "Está en el cuarto contiguo." "Conmiguo?"
15. "Todos se llaman confi." "Orale que fuerte!"
15.1 "Eeeeeva."

I love how the chiptunesque vintage electronic sound has become an accepted part of modern music. Afterall, just about anybody under 35 probably grew up with video games and computers to some degree, so it makes sense.

A job I swear existed at one point but will probably fade to "myth" status: Domain name prospector.

I knew people who had the job of looking for interesting domain names, and bought and traded them like securities. I knew a guy who was offered nearly seven figures for a two-letter .com back before the bubble burst but refused stating the domain name had too much sentimental value. He must have been serious, too, because he never sold it.

My first memory of George W. Bush as president was his rejection of the Kyoto Protocol. It's one of those memories clouded by both memories and enhanced by the most peculiar nuances. Admittedly, I wasn't nearly as political as I am today. My heart would have been for Gore except that he was completely preoccupied with other matters. Following him had led me to Spain, and I remember catching a taxi from Plaza España a cold morning in January 2001. I caught glimpse of a headline while I was standing in the plaza from the newsstand. I don't remember where I was going, the airport perhaps. I do remember it was particularly sunny, and that the building in front of the plaza reflected beautifully in the window of the taxi. It set the tone for the next eight years, particularly of deception and a growing understanding of my own political leanings.

A president's first actions are deliberately symbolic, I suppose. So far, President Obama's symbolism has been precisely in line with what I hoped he would do. Freezing salaries, asserting transparency... that's all great, but signing orders to close the Guantanamo detention center is a nod to a commitment to human rights. It's a small start to progress and I commend him for it.

The pundits immediately went to work with their criticism. I suppose that's the sign of a job well done. Thankfully, we're still a nation of laws. The big question was, "Do we want these people to be free?" I agree with our constitution that all people should have access to due process. If they have done something wrong, and we can prove it, then do whatever the law prescribes. If not, if we can't prove it, then sure, let them go. Might they go free and commit some horrible atrocity? Perhaps. Justice, although often imperfect, should be respected. I think Guantanamo symbolizes the displacement of modern America and the ideal of justice. This chasm is ironic considering our own imperialistic justifications. That irony is more dangerous than any singular terrorist because it pulls apart our ideoligical fabric and strengthens the mounting rhetoric against us.

Google Earth has a feature that allows viewers to navigate works of art from the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain. Several important works are up there like Goya's "El Tres de Mayo", Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights", and Velasquez's "Las Meninas" are online. The Goya work, in my opinion, is one of the most powerful paintings I have ever seen. I'm taking a class on Romantic art and am geeking out with this feature.

If I ever look back on today, I hope I remember I was luckily (considering the economic conditions) toiling away at work, hoping between online and analog news streams of Obama's inauguration ceremony. His whole battle for the White House was marked by the words "hope" and "change." Here is what I'm hopeful for:

- Getting the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Fuck war.
- Real human rights reform: truly outlawing torture, gay rights, and especially better immigration policy.
- Better environmental policy.
- A less embarassing healthcare policy. We'll probably never find anything perfect, but we can try.
- Enhancing our infrastructure. In particular, schools, the arts, research, and public transportation.
- Fixing the economy. Keynesian economic policy FTW, if only to enhance the infrastructure I mentioned above. Unless more Americans take an initiative to improve their competitive status in the world (i.e., getting educated, learning more languages, creating/inventing things), we're going to continue to fall as Asia and Europe rises. I don't expect Obama or any part of the government to fix that, but I do hope they do whatever possible to make it possible for those of us who care to try.
- Getting over racism. Anybody who says Obama getting elected effectively ends racism is an idiot. I've heard that mentioned several times. It undoubtedly helps the cause, however.

I'll give Obama a few years before I properly judge him, but at the very least he seems very respectable and people are nuts about him today. Best of luck. I just hope he can accomplish what we elected him for. There are other things I would love to see but expecting them would be unrealistic and beyond his scope of power.
