It is summer now, I think we can all agree. It's time for waterpark visits and novel-reading on the grass. I just finished reading Moby-Dick for the first time, what a strange book. In spite of being fairly well-informed about the book's odd novel/allegory/informational tract about whales structure I was still consistently surprised by it. I got the itch to read Moby-Dick after we watched Star Trek II, so now clearly the only way to bring it full-circle is to find the Patrick Stewart-as-Ahab TV movie...

Today I am gonna get a super cheap video camera because I want to start making little short movies with my friends. The internet is full of advice on which one to get, and it has confused the hell out of me, so I am just gonna buy something cheap that looks good and hope the writing and acting are good enough! Trailers for movies like Moon
remind me how much I love movies, and want to make them. So, why not have some fun and give it a try?
