A funny, very smart conversation between comic writer (and self proclaimed warlock) Alan Moore and Brian Eno. Go to the top right hand corner and click on "listen to latest edition".

Things like this remind me why I'm glad the BEEB still exists.

Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war.

Donald Rumsfeld

Don D. hits the big screen

The first film to be based on a Don Delillo script just played at Sundance. Called Game 6, it's about a Red Sox fan played by Michael Keaton who's caught in a traffic jam. I haven't read anything by DeLillo since his magnum opus Underworld (I couldn't even make it through the book on tape of The Body Artist read by Laurie Anderson, and I read so many bad reviews of his last book Cosmopolis--some by long time aficionados-- that I never even gave it a shot). I don't know how his hyper aware style will translate to film but I'd like to check it out if and when it ever makes it out here in the hinterlands.
