Americana on the silver screen

The American Film Institute (AFI) has released its latest list of the top 100 American movies. Yes, Lawrence of Arabia and Schindler's List are Americana, apparently, and some of my favourites.

The top 10 films are:

1. Citizen Kane (1941)
2. The Godfather (1972)
3. Casablanca (1942)
4. Raging Bull (1980)
5. Singin' In The Rain (1952)
6. Gone With The Wind (1939)
7. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
8. Schindler's List (1993)
9. Vertigo (1958)
10. Wizard of Oz (1939)

I'd like to have seen 12 angry men, 2001 A Space Odyssey, China Town or Taxi Driver up there.

There should be list that's a bit more 'popcorn' with a mix of cinematic quality, box-office quantity and cult status (not sure how one would measure that) with titles like Usual Suspects, Jacky Brown, Mars Attacks, Seven, The Driver (1978), Fight Club, Alien, Dark Star (1974), Pulp Fiction, Bullit, Blade Runner, The Thing (1982), The Shining, Unforgiven, The Graduate, Star Wars, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) just to name a few.

Space is not fit for ordinary man

However, if your are super fit, super bright, super disciplined and a multiple record holder, space has your name on it. As is the case with Sunita Williams.

A small list of some of her space records when she returns back to earth:
  1. Longest uninterrupted time in space by a female.
  2. No other woman has completed four space walks.
  3. Longest time for a female to work in freespace (29h 17m).
  4. Female record for days in space (188).
  5. The first person to complete a registered marathon from space (Boston: 4h 23m).

Yeah, I'm not going up to space any time soon.

Hanging Harry

I've seen some strange things in my life. Selling stuff without a pulse is one of them. Fur coats, stuffed animals, Céline Dion etc. etc.
But selling something that represents something dead is just a little bit stranger. Poor Harry.
