The Finer Points of Execution

The trailer for Steven Spielberg's newest movie just came out. And thought it hardly looks like a laff riot (to say the least), I'm intrigued.

He's at his best when he takes risks, after all. And this looks to have risk all over it, with protests almost certain to come from many different directions.

I'm not a huge fan of Gorillaz one way or the other (though Blur is one of my all-time faves)... but if you caught their "performance" at the European VMAs or whatever the hell it was (I swear, I only happened upon it), you saw something really staggering. They performed live.

Or with holograms. Or something.

These pictures (click on the news item about their performance, then on the thumbnails to enlarge) do it no justice... the "band members" seemed extraordinarily life-like. You knew something was off... but you couldn't place it. Really cool, and a credit to all involved for creating a new technology.
