2) Swarthmore students scream, shout as Springer shows all

A double showing of Jerry Springer's Too Hot For TV video on Wednesday night attracted hordes of students to Kirby Lecture Hall. Kirby, used to house such large classes as Biology 1, was filled beyond capacity with hooting, hollering students eager to watch 45 minutes of strippers, fistfights, and profanity. The show featured segments that had been edited out of Jerry Springer's talk show, which airs locally on UPN-17.

Students shouted so much that for most of the film, the dialogue could not could be heard. That dialogue which did carry was mostly four-letter words, as jilted lovers, pimps, and feuding family members squared off. Students loudly applauded as brawls developed. The nudity attracted less applause. The most applause came when the Springer audience swarmed onstage to attack racist guests, and when an overweight woman asserted that she wouldn't lose weight for anyone and began a food fight with her disapproving relatives.

"It was just unbelievable. Jerry Springer is Satan incarnate," said Chris DiLeo '99.

The tape was part of the Two-Fisted film series, organized by Justin Hall '98, Wilson Kello '98, and Duncan Kirkpatrick '99. The next film will be the Japanese anime Ninja Scroll (see below).


3) Upcoming films on campus

NINJA SCROLL Wednesday, 2/4 10:00 Kirby
A wandering samurai becomes embroiled in a ninja woman's war with seven demonic creatures who serve the Tokugawa Shogunate. Very bloody, very sexy, very lurid. Superb Japanese animation. (Fantasy, 94 minutes, 1993: Japan)

other than that, i would like to say that i date the juciest woman on the planet.
i want to live with her. so i work here. and, maybe we'll collaborate some, now that she's taking some digital media class-stuff. trade projects - the internet as collaborative medium? we'll see.

howard sends me an interesting piece on micropayments. i think he's right.
and he updated his page again.

suck also did a decent job with the web page subscription issue
(it's hard to lavish praise on the supremely snotty)
anyways, they had a way of saying something i hadn't thought of before:

comparing newspapers and yahoo,
and ending up recommending newspapers as local information centers.

sounds similar to hypertexting textbooks
arrange information not by newness so much as coupled newness with a basis of encompassing background on a particular scene and situation.

if/when i make a big load of cash, i'll make a foundation to pay young people to build websites on subjects of their passions. knowledge bases with consistent breadth and depth.

i'm ready! take me!
