This is Epth Nation

Epth is a state of mind, not a place. Reading this will give you a virtual drivers license in that state, but you'll still need to be 21 to purchase alcohol. And you can't get any there anyway, so stop asking.

I Have Decided I Really Like Entertainment

So it's time to watch some Netflix movies, especially with my wife temporarily out of the general area. I've already started watching RevolutionOS, which is one nerd's film about the origins of Linux and the Open Source Movement's quixotic quest to topple Microsoft Windows. As a "computer guy" and a hater of both Microsoft and Linux, I feel like I'm the right person to write about this issue. I've watched about 20 minutes of the thing so far, and am most struck by the Open Source nerds' cockiness. Not that there's anything wrong with being a cocky nerd, but they've been at this Open Source thing for 20+ years now with no real mass-market Windows alternative to show for it. Now that's quixotic.

Also, Netflix just added to their repertoire The Falls, which is a weird movie I've always wanted to see but never had the chance. Things are looking up in Mike Land. I hate it when people refer to their lives as a piece of land.

I also have Wild at Heart to watch. Oh, and I saw King Arthur finally a couple of weeks ago. Man, it was haphazard, offensive, and Clive-Oweny. That's bad. I liked this movie slightly better when it was called Braveheart. It even has people painted blue! We may have finally proven once and for all that there will never be a better movie made about the Arthurian legend than Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Anarchocyndiclous commune, indeed.
