Sir Geoffery of Lebowski

This past weekend, I went to CELLspace to catch a performance by The Primitive Screwheads. This Shakespearean twist on the Coen Brothers film, The Big Lebowski was very well done: quite funny, worked great with audience participation, went through the entire story and balanced incorporation of contemporary and "olde" elements. The production, Much Ado About Lebowski, has only one weekend left, June 24 and 25.

Verily, that rug did tie the room together

Murals and Graffiti on Bryant Street

Went into San Francisco last night and saw some cool spray painted artwork on Bryant Street, around 18th Street. Thought I would share a few photos I took.

Hindi Support For Linux

Some Indic script support missing

Ever visited a web site, like the one pictured above, and saw a bunch of (Unicode) blocks instead of the text you expected? Install support for the language you want on your Linux host, just like I did for the above-pictured Punjabi.

Kung Fu Panda 2 Credits

If you have not watched Kung Fu Panda 2, what are you waiting for? Call in sick, remove your kids from school, and get to the theater! This film is an excellent follow-up to the first and you must see it in 3D. Just amazing!

This is the scene in the credits where my name is listed. No, I am not a part of the creative staff, although us geeks must be creative at times to support the artists.

Enjoy the movie...
