yeah, I heard about that after that billionaire sent an email to all his employees warning them he might have to fire them if Obama is re-elected. Seems interesting.

Actually it's hilarious. One of my favourite quotes in the movie is from one of their children after they had to cut back and use public air services: "Mummy, what are all these people doing on our plane?"

I saw that 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi' movie - it was a little slow, but had some interesting themes:  If you're going to do something with your life, you should always be trying to get better.  Absolute mastery is always the goal.  Definitely had hints of a dark side though:  His 50-something year-old son is very much in his shadow, and even if he has the raw skill he will never have the reputation of his father.  Cool movie.

Speaking of Russians and tattoos, I enjoyed the documentary The Mark of Cain (2001) on "the vanishing practice and language of Russian Criminal Tattoos". Filmed inside Russian prisons. It's on YouTube.

Indie Game - The Movie: About independent video game designers, but how they talk about it, it just feels like developing your first trading strategy.

Open that old bottle of fine wine and watch it on a big screen at your home in a quiet weekend night.

Samsara

It will make you think.

Exit through the gift shop was better than I expected from the theme. Would love to find the same Sex Pistols t-shirt Shepard Fairey used.. could not find it googling :(

Jiro dreams of sushi was a bit slow as someone stated and in a way slightly simple. But still worth it.

Keep them coming. Good stuff.

Also, "To Mars by A-Bomb" (the book on Project Orion is good too):

I'm not really interested in learning about the Rothschilds, so I didn't watch. I did notice that the poster of that docu goes by, "NationalSocialism Wins," which doesn't inspire confidence.

Check out the space docus; they're pretty cool.

Gibbon wrote about it (probably taking it from Procopius):
http://www.ccel.org/g/gibbon/decline/volume2/chap40.htm

I think John Julius Norwich also did, probably in more detail, but I don't own that volume of his.
