Sanitarium?

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

5.26.02 EXT. MOD QUAD. 6:03pm DAY i think the extreme conservatism here at Notre Dame has made more of a liberal out of me. the hypocrisy, bureaucracy, and oppressive nature of ‘tradition’ that i am constantly faced with has slowly forced me from my rather apolitical fencesitting into a slightly more radical stance where i […]

Applied Philosophy

5.25.02 INT. HESBURGH COMPUTER CLUSTER KIOSK 1:42pm DAY i know why i like anthropology so much. i think i have finally understood the holism of anthropology. anthropology is applied philosophy. i’ve read so many things that describe types of behavior and discussions of what defines reality, etc that seem totally unaware that anthropologists deal with […]

Episode 2

5.22.02 INT. SHOWPLACE 16 8:00pm NIGHT i just watched episode 2. george lucas has never been an actor’s director so i can excuse the instances of bad acting except for the extra parmesan in the love dialogue, he should have at least had the sense to nix that. the three zooms were totally unacceptable and […]

Spiderman

5.4.02 INT. KEOUGH HALL RM 435. 11:25am DAY not much to say today. saw spiderman last night. my theory as a film major is that any movie based on a comic book that reminds you of the comic book and runs like a comic book is a good movie for those very reasons. it seems […]
