Observations

8 06 2009

First:

The Wikipedia entry for “film producer” is quite possibly the most boring, depressingly corporate crap I’ve ever read on Wikipedia.  For this reason, I volunteer that the word “producer” or any verbial or adjectival variant of it be wiped from the credits of all movies, except where that word is preceded by “post”. And really, it should be called “post film” or “post filming”. Production is the act of creation. Doing little digital fixups and atmospheres is part of making the damn movie, not what happens after the movie is made. After the movie is made, we all fork over $10 like little idiots and sit and watch it.

Maybe I’m wrong, and that Wikipedia entry is way off-base, and the job titles like “Associate Producer” and “Co-Producer” are not as blandly hierarchical as they sound. The article is flagged for lack of sources.

Second:

Sphere by Merzbow always puts me in a nicely focused, relatively peaceful place.

Third:

95% of all blogs are abandoned (according to the New York Times). Sad. I don’t doubt that the statistic is high, but you have to agree the New York Times has reason to paint the majority of blogs in a terribly amateur light.  Otherwise, they won’t be able to start charging for news (like David Simon suggests).
