From the Katy Chronicles: Drinking, Drawing & Debauchery. It's a (not quite SFW) video on the Madison branch of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School ("It's a place where clothes come off in the name of art.").

Having two Oscars in the can will buy anyone's floundering career a stay of execution, but apart from committed, powerful performances in Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby, Swank has a résumé spottier than a leopard with severe acne.

And: "Coming later this year: Reeves as Klaatu in a remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. No, seriously, we aren't kidding even a little bit." No, they aren't joking.

Inside: What a boring MLK Day. So I went to the movies.

Erica Henderson gives us a sketching/art blog, I Fail At Life, That's Why I Became An Artist; I'm rather taken by the Commamelion. A comment in a holiary reminded me of Rise of the Triad; then I found a video of level E1B7, General Darian. Another project led me to a Delicious Library to BibTeX Converter.

Inside: Saturday (reading and listening).

I haven't yet made a "2007" mistake, perhaps because I haven't written any checks yet this month. For Nibelungen fans there is a new review of a new book, The Wagner Clan (book by Jonathan Carr, review by Laura Miller). Also: the Big Brain Theory ("Have Cosmologists Lost Theirs?"), Big Dinosaurs Had "Teen Sex", and Boll bombs ("[Boll] will return to low-budget filmmaking now that his latest and biggest production, the $70 million fantasy epic 'In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale,' bombed at the North American box office.")

Inside: Reading, eating, watching, working ... this diary has more verbiage than the one before but less than than the one two before, and less content than either.

Mitt rejäla asgarv kom när Sarah Connor säger till den för tillfället topplösa Terminatorn "You might want to holster those"
