ha, now that's some creative use of space.

I've had the fortune to get a preview of this and can't wait for its March release. The authors get inside details of the chase for Khalid Sheik Mohammed that started in 1993. We almost caught him a number of times pre 9/11 but our own bureaucracy tragically got in the way. The characters involved from the FBI and CIA sound amazing and it's all true.
Wow, super efficient, but I think I’d get sick of having to slide walls everywhere to go to the kitchen or take a bath. On a way less extreme level, I did see an apartment in NYC where a bookshelf had rollers and it rolled out to reveal a TV and entertainment center behind it. That was pretty cool.
This will change the way you look at international development and efforts to reduce poverty. It's shocking to see how brilliant people built policies around seemingly random and untested economic hypotheses. It is provocative. Eg #1 more education can be a bad thing. Eg #2 it might be a good thing for very low income families to have more kids, not fewer.
On a sketchy corner of NYC's Nolita district, La Esquina looks like a dive-y diner you'd only go to in desperation. Not so fast - go down the back stairs, walk through the kitchen and arrive at the cave like brasserie. Great atmo with models and wannabes enjoying nicely prepared Mexican fare. Sceney, secret, and fun. Good cocktails too. NYT says "Studio 54 with chipotle instead of coke."
This is a gem. It's a deep and compelling psychological study of a broken man and addict. Through tall tales of daring-do he enlists a little girl to do his bidding, and she uses her imagination to bring these bent tales to life. One of the most beautiful movies I've seen. Incredible visuals and filmed in over 20 countries.

Just saw this on Hunch's recommendation and I have to chip in. This movie is filled with delight. It lives up to it's tag line of being a "Japanese Noodle Western" while interrupting the core plot with episodes celebrating our diverse passions for food. It's great, silly fun.
