Road to Perdition, a beautifully crafted film

… ‘cause it’s all so fucking hysterical.

There are a few movies I re-watch every year or so. Road to Perdition is one, along with Godfather I & II, Gladiator, the Chris Pine-as-Kirk Star Trek films, and Last of the Mohicans.

I’d return for the sublime Paul Newman/Tom Hanks piano duet alone, but throw in the gangsters and depression era time travel, and I’m hooked.

I’m Sorry I Criticized You, Apple. You Win


Apple is a rock of common sense, sobriety, dignified engineering supremacy, prudent financial and supply chain management, effective marketing and customer-oriented retailing. It’s a traditional business that does most things well, demands a high price for it and receives that high price.

Happy May Day

Sunlit 2.1 Released:

Photos continue to be a really important part of, especially as more and more people are disillusioned with Facebook and Instagram. Here’s how I see it: a network of independent photo blogs is a much better replacement for Instagram than yet another closed photo silo. Sunlit is just one piece of the puzzle.

What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign?

“This is one of the most intriguing questions on the list. It is not clear whether Mr. Mueller knows something new, but there is no publicly available information linking Mr. Manafort, the former campaign chairman, to such outreach. So his inclusion here is significant. Mr. Manafort’s longtime colleague, Rick Gates, is cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”
