Sites and movies and such

Every once in a while I am going to post an accomplice site that I think is worthy of checking out. I think Bill Streeter's site, lofistl, is a great site. Bill uses video blogging. He picks some great content. I think I am going to incorporate some elements of video blogging into stlstreets and also I am going to try to make a Royale blog. It may take a few months to fully develop this.

I also just watched The Battle for Algiers by Gillo Pontecorvo. It looks and feels like documentary, but it is a film on the Algerian Revolt against the French Colonialists in the mid 50s. They use some very graphic scenes of torture. The revolt shows people blowing up cafes with small bombs, shooting police and soldiers. It is hard to watch. I was showing it down in the Royale and a few people seemed concerned about it. I told them what it was, and I figured now that torture is legal it should be just fine to show this on TV. It is reality.

Hey we must be on the same wave length. I have that movie from Netflix right now too. I've been watching it on my breaks at work (the only time I have for watching movies lately).

Anyway thanks for the plug. You know I dig your blog.
