Words Travelling in Waves

This just in from Yahoo! movies; "Since it opened last week, James Cameron's much-anticipated film 'Avatar' has won praise from movie critics and been a juggernaut at the box office. But some who have seen the film say that it contains hidden messages that are anti-war, pro-environment, and perhaps even racist." Mainstream dialogue moves at the speed of pudding on a slight slope.

Looking for something to listen to while inking and colouring, since Howard Stern's off for a couple weeks, I found first that this site, which I normally rely on to find huge, high quality images of classic movie stars, has a bunch of mp3s of old radio shows to download. Among other things, I downloaded a 1948 Lux production of Jane Eyre starring Ingrid Bergman I'm really eager to listen to.

Then, looking at links on the site, I found this site for Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre. There're mp3s for direct download and a torrent if you scroll to the bottom of the page--lots of things I'm excited to listen to, including The Man Who was Thursday, Dracula, and The Magnificent Ambersons. That last one is exciting for the fact that it's sure to be another piece of Orson Welles' original vision, something to give one a better view on what he had made before his movie was degraded by the studio's reworking. The conversation between Orson Welles and H.G. Wells should also be a good listen.

Really sleepy to-day. Not much sleep, but I'm trying to ease myself into being up massively early to-morrow and the next day.

Last night's tweets;

Bright Tron bowels unwind for the holidays.
Apple juice can't digest cinnamon well.
Booze separates from the blood of Tuesdays.
Modern clay pots have no secrets to tell.
