Morning Links 9.2.08

Off to catch a matinee of Wall-E with Jack (second time for both of us!). Here are some links of stuff I’ve been wanting to post:

Takashi Miike’s latest, Sukiyaki Western Django is playing this week at the Landmark Sunshine Theater. It’s an adaptation of Leone’s Fistful of Dollars, which itself is an adaptation of Kurosawa’s Yojimbo. Looks awesome, if you can sit through Japanese actors speaking English essentially phonetically.

Henry Darger, everyone’s favorite outsider artist, has an exhibit at the American Folk Art Museum this month. The exhibit will feature excerpts from Darger’s 15,000 page graphic novel, The Story of the Vivian Girls, in what is Known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion. Runs through the 21st of September.

Fuck Comcast. I downloaded 10 movies last night in protest.

I’ve been getting my geek on with Yahoo Pipes recently. Here’s a Lifehacker feed I made with all of the Windows-only posts filtered out. Power to the people baby.

The Alien Quadrilogy for 26 bucks!

I really don’t get how the ‘trouble-making’ protesters are always labeled “anarchists”. Also, for the record, as annoying as some of these protesters can be, I will always side with a trendy pierced-up asshole in a face scarf over a paramilitary storm trooper-looking asshole spraying teargas and mace into peoples’ faces. Here’s some horribly biased coverage.

    that coverage is so infuriating!!! thanks for posting that shit. nothing’s changed since the RNC in NYC four years ago. hopefully the resulting court settlements from this one will pay out to those arrested as well.
