Money is material

Saw this awesome piece on CBS Sunday morning:

Once again, Grant Wood is the cultural common denominator:

Jodorowsky’s Dune

I have semi-followed Jodorowsky’s Dune for a long, long time. Not as long as the movie hasn’t been made, but a long time, ne’ertheless. I got to see it see it in all its glory last night, and I was not disappoint. This documentary has everything: crazy concept art, fascinating anecdotes about famous people, a mind opening coda which reveals just how influential this unmade movie was, and, most of all, a charismatic cult leader whose enthusiasm is infectious. When I walked out of this picture, I felt like I had a new perspective on life, primarily due to Jodorowsky’s crazy obsessiveness.
I could go into a lengthy (or even brief) plot outline, but it’s not necessary. Just watch the trailer below and know that it serves as a great encapsulation of the movie’s fabulous realities. (The stories of serendipity in the preproduction do often play like fables. Like a tale where the hero must solve a series of riddles to find the macguffin.) In the end, I’m only a little sad it didn’t get made. I’m happy the documentary did, though.

What a deal

So many jokes about the short bus and/or squealing like a pig. At any rate, this happened on my amazon local email:
