Ooh, escarpment shots!! A bit late, but I'll take them! It's a spectacular vantage point up there from near Glen Eden.

Imagine my horror when I learned that the next Werner Herzog film stars Nicholas Cage! His appeal is utterly baffling to me.

I've looked at it now, Mike. Quite good. We need to get a link from LOL to you, I think. I bet you've tried, but can you flip the map so it is horizontal, rather than vertical?

Good job all around.

Great Mike! You forgot to mention your involvement with the print book, though, in your "about the author" bit.

I suspect that Dave can find it on line somewhere, but your connection will be too slow. It's an NFB/French production... I'm guessing that the one thing Monsanto can do in its defense (and would do, after seeing the film) is to have its distribution made limited.

You should rent the DVD for The World According to Monsanto , if it happens to be in your rental store. Not a happy picture, but after watching it, getting other people to watch it seems urgent - and not in the global warming way. I've recommended The Corporation , which is a great film about how co...

Tanja and Mark- It is good to hear that they are peaceful. I was already figuring that I will most likely have to siphon out the 1/4 inch of sand that I have in the quarantine tank when the time comes to move them to the large tank. Best of luck with this project. I hope you film your attempts! I m...

You'll love them, Keith. Very peaceful fish that mind their own business. I have come to believe that they serve an important role in filtering substrate materials... Whenever I vacuum out the sand in their tank, it is almost totally clean - quite unlike the other loach tank I still have. One bit of...

I am slowly accumulating the Criterion collection.... very slowly... WR: Mysteries of the Organism , by Dusan Makaveyev arrived last week, and his film Sweet Movie today. Both are mind-bending trips in 1970s cinema - Sweet Movie breaks about every visual taboo there is without being particularly vio...

46 years of fishkeeping probably gives one a fairly good eye for healthy fish, but it's poor advice not to quarantine, IMO. To each their own, of course, but if we're to dispense advice on LOL, I'd err on the side of caution rather than compromise a tank of healthy fish.

My friends know me so well. For my recent birthday I received the new DVD sets for three towering classics: Dr. Strangelove, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and Fitzcaraldo. Each is enjoyable for totally different reasons.
