Living in a fisheye lens

It is interesting to note that today is the anniversary of the opening of the first official public showing of a film for profit at Koster and Bials Music Hall in New York City on April 23,1896. Before that people used to watch ”moving pictures” in a Kinetescope which basically looked like box and were labelled “peep shows”. I suppose with the advent of movies for cell phones, psp’s, ipods and other portable devices we’ve officially come full circle.

Check out the latest episode of Rewired titled Hungry Girl on our Victory 5 Network as professor Brown reviews the best on the web. In an upcoming episode Professor Brown will be reviewing his favourite blogs. If you have a blog you would would like reviewed by the good professor contact us through our main site's contact page.

It's hard to believe the movie studios and writers in Hollywood have already run dry of movie ideas so they have had to rehatch Herbie movies...which weren't even good the first time around!!

Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage
Cast in this unlikely role,
Ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
Living in a fisheye lens
Caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can’t pretend a stranger
Is a long-awaited friend
All the world’s indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another’s audience
Outside the gilded cage

1896, huh? Wow, that's crazy. Oh, and watefowler I agree about the crap Hollywood tries to pass off as entertainment these days. I was just reading an article about the expected blockbustersfort he summer... they mentioned Mission Impossible 3 (blech!) and The Da Vinci Code (double blech!)... wtf? Boooooooring.

Yeah, it's been a while since I was dragged out to the theatre...wait a minute, not true I just saw "Thank You For Smoking". I liked it for it's originality and decent writing..i wouldn't say it was outstanding as the ending was a bit predictable.

How the hell does a kinetescope work?. It was over a hundred years ago. It seems really strange that they had film of any sort. Today is Eric Bogosian's birthday since you were on the topic of birthdays. A lot of people wouldn't know him but he was in one of Oliver Stone's first movies called Talk Radio. I love that movie. Bogosian played the lead role as a DJ in the real life story of a Howard Sternesque Radio host that was killed by a crazed listener.
