Well, I worked 9 hours today. Picked up 10 and two halves (the distinction is meaningful, but too dull to go into here) complete interviews.

Reverend Falwell, need I point out that the actual perpetrators of the events were religious zealots?

Saw "The Deep End", directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel. It must be good, because I didn't entirely get it. The magnificent Tilda Swinton stars as a mother of three. When her eldest son's "friend" washes up dead on the beach behind her house, she sets off a chain of events that culminate in the very likely possibility that someone in her family will end up in prison. Ms. Swinton is terrific, being both steely and motherly at the same time, even as her problems spiral and she gets more and more desperate. Goran Visnjic ("ER"'s Dr. Kovac) is on hand as well, as a blackmailer with a CPR card. The whole thing is terrifically shot, putting the scenery in and around Lake Tahoe to excellent use. Ultimately, though, I left the theatre scratching my head, wondering exactly what the point was McGehee and Siegel were trying to make.

Today's Link Of The Day is another one from the wonderful crank file that is the Internet. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Ashida Kim, ninja. http://www.ashidakim.com
