John Cleese on Creativity

This is an old talk but I had not seen it before. In this talk, John Cleese gives some information on creativity. It is not instruction on how to be creative, but it sets a framework on how to maximize creativity and discusses ways in which creativity is blocked. This is a worthy lecture and I will have to try some of these techniques myself.

Trailer: Pacific Rim

Ever since I saw the first trailers for the move Robot Jox so long, long ago, I’d hoped for a good giant robot movie. Transformers does’t count for what I’m talking about, I need robots piloted by humans. The initial trailers for Pacific Rim had be worried. This latest trailer is better, but I still have concerns. Please, let this be a good giant robot movie!

Trailer: The Lone Ranger

I didn’t know what to expect when this trailer came out. Now that I’ve seen it, I have an idea what the movie will look and “feel” like, but I still have no clear idea what the story will be. It involves the mythical “Old West” and the railroad plus lots of people with guns. I’m intrigued, but I’d like to know more about the story before I decide it’s something worth a visit to a theater.
