‘Skyfall’ logo

Saw Skyfall last night. Excellent movie, and a damned good Bond tribute as well. Surprisingly powerful ending, at least for me, and more than a little sad. 8.5/10.

Meanwhile, I’m busy with music-making (more specifically, music-software-work-correctly-making), so no blogging for you. Except for these links.

  • It seems the new Niagara Falls Reporter publisher/editor is a sub-literate misogynist who hates movies “where women are heroes and villains and men are just lesser versions or shadows of females”, because he “believe[s] in manliness”.

  • A more in-depth look at Nate Silver’s rather lackluster handling of climate science.

  • Jason Wakefield at New Humanist explains why anti-gay-marriage arguments are always either covertly or overtly homophobic – if not just plain silly.
