New Brazil Documentary: Manda Bala

Manda Bala (Send A Bullet) is a new documentary causing a bit of a stir at Sundance. It's about the connection between political corruption and street crime in Brazil told through the story of, amongst other things, an organic frog farm that acts as a money laundering operation for a corrupt official. The director, Jason Kohn, is a disciple of Errol Morris (who was a producer on the film). For more info:

Clash of the Titans

Colbert is in tip-top form in this clip. O'Reilly's tone, by contrast, is totally impossible to gauge. Although it's a rip to hear the titters escaping from his camera crew throughout the segment; I'm sure they were all summarily fired after the show ended.

Danger: Pants Pee

In the eternal search for YouTube's funniest video, I think we have a winner. Unless I'm wrong and only musicians can enjoy this. But I think there's at least one thing going on here that everyone can appreciate.

Dark Restaurants

Apparently, the hip international cuisine trend is restaurants with no lights. They have them in Paris, Zurich, and a new one in Beijing (above) where the waiters where night vision goggles and cell phones are not allowed (because they generate light).

Did I miss the announcement of William Gibson's election to World Culture Czar?

For you Angelinos out there: the Los Angeles Organic Vegetable Express is a produce delivery service that, unlike many of its kind, allows you to completely customize the frequency and (importantly) selection.
