Watching Nice Guy Johnny at the moment

i was going to do a whole live blogging thing, but best just to watch the movie & write about it later. so, later on...

:: (about an hour later, movie is still rolling)

flick is shot very well. at some points looks like a J. Crew ad.

:: (flick is over)

Alright, saw Nice Guy Johnny - entertaining, time well spent, & $3.99 well spent (saw it via cable on-demand). Some thoughts about the movie:

- shot well/great cinematography from beginning to end

- great music

- the secondary character Uncle Terry is funny - an entire movie about that character might be fun to watch

New developments in e-readers :: self-publishing e-books

- Pubit! - B&N's e-book self-publishing option

I like Armond White's review of The Social Network

I have absolutely less than zero interest in watching a movie (which looks over hyped & hyper-fictionalized) about a guy who invented a website (which is no doubt vastly over-valued $s wise), but, Armond White's review of the said movie - The Social Network - is a pretty good read.
