Amicalola, Cloudland, Johns Mountain

Here are some photographs from our hikes in North Georgia. In the spring, we went to Amicalola falls, Johns Mountain and Cloudland Canyon. All are very scenic and fun to hike. Even Michelle hiked for part of the trail.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a classic Spaghetti Western. While I enjoyed the movie, the print restoration job wasn’t very good and at times it looks washed up. Overall, I rate it 8/10.

You Are On Notice

Stephen Colbert has his On Notice board. Now you can have one too. Here is mine.

Thank You for Smoking

We saw this movie in the theater. It is a good satirical comedy about a tobacco industry lobbyist who can spin anything to his clients’ favor. I rate it 8/10.

Today is Michelle’s second birthday. She has grown a lot during the last year. Here are some photographs.

Good Night, and Good Luck

It is a movie about the conflict between journalist Murrow and Senator McCarthy. It focuses exclusively on media responsibility and other than the archive footage of McCarthy it almost never leaves the CBS studio. Overall, it is a good movie.

Muslim Occidentalism

Thabet argues that Muslims see the West similar to the way the West sees Muslims. Western Orientalism has a counterpart in Muslim Occidentalism. What is even more interesting is that Western Muslims set themselves apart from the West.

Seven Samurai

A samurai movie classic, Seven Samurai, is fun to watch despite the bad print of an oldie. Seven samurai get together to defend a village against bandits. The movie is worth watching. I rate it 8/10.
