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 - not clear about the motivations of the Brook (sp?) character - why she does some of the stuff she does - but - I guess that's like real life sometimes (maybe it would have been better if that character & Johnny had a previous thing in NY & then they met up again in NY, etc., etc. - but, the story is told/the film is set & out, what it is now is what it is) - Ed Burns' minimali

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

Had to learn a lot about the Nook e-reader (Barnes & Noble) for work recently (one of my day jobs is at a B&N store) - it's a cool device with some very useful features for readers (can barrow books from libraries, can lend books to others), & they have a color version of the Nook coming out soon (Nook color promo video at top) . Check out this NYT article about new developments in the e-reader market . And, for the DIY crowd - here are two links related to self-publishing e-books: - selfpublishebooks.com site - an intro to the process/business - Pubit! - B&N's e-book self-publishing option - S  ADVERTISEMENT Al Maiorino - Italian Genealogy, Public Strategy Group, & more!   http://almaiorino.blogspot.com/2011/12/al-maiorino-welcome-to-blog.html Al Maiorino Linkedin :   http://www.linkedin.com/pub/al-maiorino/a/5aa/48b http://www.energias-renovables.net/energias/renovables/index/pag/entrevistas/colleft//colright/blog/tip/articulos

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.
