I thought that the whole purpose of the Internet was that you wouldn't have to yell from one hill to another.

No, the whole purpose of the internet is, as much as I heard, porn sites.
Si

i'm reminded of that show, trigger happy tv, where the guy walks around with a huge cell phone and screaming.
The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

Last night I saw the Kronos Quartet perform a new composition in concert. For those who don't know, they performed Clint Mansell's compositions for the Requiem score. It was a fantastic show, they're really tight.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

I wonder if the Kronos Quartet are getting lots of money from the lord of the rings marketing campaigns.

I finally saw Pi.  Good movie, but I wasn't overwhelmed by it.  He uses similar techniques in Requiem, such as the quick cuts of the guy taking the pill and the weird first person camera thing.  Was Seconds the first movie to use that?

You mean the cool-named "Snorry cam"?

If that is what it is called, yes.

It's kinda cool how they attach this, from the looks of it, heavy rig on the actor.

I think the first was Mean Streets

They also used it in a Mick Jagger video and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

It was used in Seconds, made in 1966, perhaps before the "Snorrycam" moniker.

http://www.filmfreakcentral.net/dvdreviews/seconds.htm

In a way, the film is more Howe's than Frankenheimer's, with most of the director's visual hallmarks (wide angle, deep focus, forced perspective) subsumed by Howe's experimentation with long tracks (all the more impressive for the lack of a Steadicam), body-mounted POV shots (which Frankenheimer does insert at one point in a hotel stairwell in 1964's The Train), and the newly-invented 9mm ('fish-eye') lens.

Sussman Adapting Simmons' Song of Kali
Source: Variety

Screenwriter Lucas Sussman will adapt Dan Simmons' novel Song of Kali for Darren Aronofsky's New Regency-based Protozoa Pictures, says Variety.

Aronofsky and Eric Watson will produce the film, which follows an American poet who travels with his Indian wife and their baby to Calcutta. He's supposed to be picking up an Indian writer's epic poem cycle about the goddess Kali, an ancient Indian deity of evil whose only clothing is a girdle made of dead men's hands. When he arrives, however, he finds the poet has disappeared under mysterious circumstances involving a cult that worships the goddess.

Sussman previously collaborated with Aronofsky on the David Twohy-helmed submarine thriller Below. He also recently completed the sci-fi Western Silver for Fox-based Firm Films.

Regency is also developing the conspiracy thriller Flicker with Aronofsky and Jim Uhls (Fight Club) scripting. The story, told through the eyes of an obsessed Los Angeles film student, is that B movies are part of a plot to destroy life on Earth.
