Just a speck of an entry this time, by way of contrast. ^_^ (Assuming I can actually submit this.. looks like today may have seen the threshold met for RFI disrupting DSL connections, due to locals using Mr Hertz' popular new invention, Old Sparky Brand Lights of Seasonally Flickering Illumination) I also wanted to post this before it went stale: tomorrow (Thursday) evening at 7.30pm, Asifa Hollywood members can see The Incredibles. With a Q&A session with Brad Bird. Moderated by Matt Groening. Not such a bad way to spend an evening, ne?

An interesting glimpse inside North Korea (11MB QuickTime), portraying an atmosphere of fear of an outside attack, and continued reverence for their leader.

A curious cross-marketing agreement should see fruition in the coming summer, between the California Tree Fruit Agreement and Apple, offering iTMS tracks with the purchase of peaches, plums, and nectarines.

Interesting inclusion in the 2005 Meeting of the Canadian Sociology and Anthropology Association: "[F5] Pervert Studies: Considerations of the Social Life of Sex, Pleasure and the Erotic"

A look into the one possible future of DVD cryptography, as explained by the scheme's architect.

Finally, for the otaku with not enough music in their life: Bandai's limited run of 2000 units of the Neon Genesis Evangelion iPod. Meet the end (or rebirth) of the world in style!

And tonight.. I'm making toast!'ll be seeing the aforementioned flick. At last!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Interesting. I'll admit, my first thought was "This can't be real." I thought it might have been, as you said, a big ol' propaganda pamphlet specially pumped out by a government institution upon this journalist's arrival-- just because North Korea is the sort of place where that's not at all out of the question.

And hmm... the ccTLD trivia could be the subject of a very good Quiz Bowl question in the near future. =;)
