Idle Mist Prologue / From College To Film

Did your father or mother ever tell you: "You might not understand it now, but one day you will and you'll thank me"?

Well, my childhood was full of those, and it irked the heck out of me. To a stubborn and cocky know-it-all kid, that line seemed the most illogical and lazy way to bluff yourself out of an argument. Well, now I am no longer "young enough to know everything" (Oscar Wilde's words) and guess what, my mom turned out to be right just about every time.

She never b...Read more

Shelter

During my first years of life we lived in El Triangulo, a nice residential area between that stretches between the two main highways in Manizales: la Santander y la 23. I used to call our place the blue house, though it wasn't literally so. My earliest memory comes from a strong earthquake we experienced in Manizales around that time. I felt the wind on my face as my mom ran out of our place and across the street, carrying me in her arms. A couple of my parents’ closest friends, a doctor and a nurse, lived there and it also must’ve seemed safer t...Read more

Fair Play at the American Film Market

At the American Film Market, held here in Santa Monica this past week, I attended the private screening of a cool French film called Fair Play. Unfortunately, you won't find it in theaters just yet, but I bet the filmmakers were able secure a distribution deal at the event. They should have. I for one thoroughly enjoyed it. I won't spoil it for you, suffice it to say that it deals with the rapacious competitive nature exalted in capitalistic societies, and it's told through a highly engaging life-and-death sc...Read more

Little Pleasures

Mmm. What happiness a new bed brings. A late

birthday present. A warm cup of coffee in the

ungodly morning hours. Writing when I should be

sleeping. Life is good.

Torture, Religion and the Mid-term Elections

I didn't mean to imply in my last post that criminal activity should be accepted, or that one shouldn't protect one's own in self-defense, I wanted to merely point out that these two arguments are often abused in the name of further atrocities.

The methods employed for achieving what are usually lofty goals are what makes one's actions either solutions or complications or even greater crimes than the instigator's. Waterboarding or any kind of torture contaminates any claims to a higher ...Read more

The Violent Answer

Yesterday the Democratic party took control of

Congress. After much patronizing and self-

delusion, Rummy had to step down.

Bush's impopular Iraq war and the recent

Republican corruption scandals antagonized

enough voters for the Democrats to "whoop" the

asses of their opposition.

I had about lost hope in US voters. I was

almost starting to feel like Mark Twain, who

stayed in the country only as to avoid its

foreign policies.
