1. Intro to Almodóvar: a suggested order of watching

    I’ve been a fan of Almodóvar since living in Spain in the early 2000s, and I’ve just become more attached to his films since then. 

    If you haven’t see anything by Almodóvar, I’ve been working on ordering my favorites in a way that introduces you to his style while not being boringly chronological.

    So here’s what I’m thinking lately; keep in mind these are my must-watch personal favorites:

    Hable con Ella (Talk to Her)

    Todo Sobre Mi Madre (All About My Mother)

    Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown)

    Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces)

    Volver 

    Comments welcome - enjoy!

  4. …the issue of internet governance is about to become very contentious. Given what we now know about how the US and its satraps have been abusing their privileged position in the global infrastructure, the idea that the western powers can be allowed to continue to control it has become untenable.

    Edward Snowden’s not the story. The fate of the internet is.

  5. The highest type of ruler is one of whose existence the people are barely aware. Next comes one whom they love and praise. Next comes one whom they fear. Next comes one whom they despise and defy. When you are lacking in faith, Others will be unfaithful to you. The Sage is self-effacing and scanty of words. When his task is accomplished and things have been completed, All the people say, ‘We ourselves have achieved it!’
