Haven’t been on Tumblr since my birthday. Was occupied with that, Avatar, Christmas, and now New Years. Good to see things don’t change much here and everyone I follow still provides my visual supplements for the day. To everyone that follows me, thanks, you don’t know me (other than four of you), but I really appreciate you finding interest in the same gems I fold to.
A decade completed. The “lost decade” as far as my generation is concerned. Sure there were breakthroughs in science, technology, and society but the slow burn of 9/11, war, and conspiracy is still holding us down. Thus tonight I will party like it’s 1999. Cliche, sure. But honestly, that was the last great year for cinema and America.
On to the next one. 2010, ahoy!
is it wise to ask questions of friends? Will this break trust if they see you ignore advice?
I still haven’t figured that one out yet. I’d like to say my words stay subjected to my own life, but I can’t help but want to speak when someone is fucking up. Like me.

Are you a fan of the movie Home Alone? /Film reader Tom H sent along word that you can now follow the McCallister family as they fly off to Paris and discover they left their son Kevin at home, alone.
The Home Alone Twitter project follows the characters in real time in an alternative dimension where all of the characters have access to Twitter accounts in the 21st century. People who are interested can follow 22 different characters or just watch the the twitter-list to see how they interact, chat to each other and tweet their thoughts and feelings. You might also want to check out some of the individual twitter accounts, which are all pretty elaborately set-up. For example, check out the page for Buzz McCallister.
Kevin McCallister just sent out a twitpic showing a photo of van in the driveway of his neighbors house, but he “thought the Murphys went to Florida??” Meanwhile, you can watch burglars Harry and Marv tweet to each other from the van as they scope out the McCallister home.
Kevin, you’re such a disease!

Can’t wait to find out what goes down tonight.
Been waiting for today for almost a little over a decade. The dawn of a new era has arrived and I am prepared for the next stages of the war against celluloid. I love cinema.
