Bobby Fischer... Who Knew?

Posted by James Davie On 2008-01-31 2 comments

Everyone should be familiar with the name Bobby Fischer - a chess prodigy who dazzled the world with his prowess before going into reclusion.

Well apparently he died recently and in the wake of the announcement about the bio being made about him the video in the link was released. Somehow I don't think the material in the video will make it to the big screen, but if it does I may be forced to watch...

I'm not commenting one way or another. The interview segment in the short video took place mere hours after the 9/11 attacks.

Be warned the video has NSFW audio, so wear headphones if you're watching at work.

Stumbled upon this by accident, and couldn't believe the story.

Anybody else watch that pathetic excuse for a SoTU address last night? At least Obama's response was good. To bad he'll probably never be elected.

Another national survey has found that more Americans believe the news media leans more to the left than the right.

The study by Sacred Heart University Polling Institute found 45.4 percent of the respondents think journalists and broadcasters are mostly or somewhat liberal. Just 15.7 percent think they are conservative.

44.9 percent view CNN as liberal; 41.9 believe The New York Times leans left; 40.3 for National Public Radio and 38.8 for MSNBC. 48.7 percent said FOX News is mostly or somewhat conservative.

And, as far as which outlet is "most trusted?" FOX News led the way with 27 percent, CNN at 14.6 percent; NBC News at 10.9 percent; ABC at 7 percent; local news 6.9 percent; CBS at 6.8 percent; MSNBC at 4 percent and Public Broadcasting at 3 percent.


FOX News led the way. I think that puts the whole American condition into perspective. ;)

Finished Shooting Batman 2

I hope they are finished shooting that movie, 'cause, he's dead.

Wonder why he was in the apartment of an Olsen twin.

Truth be told...

I think this really captures the essence of the situation.

Is the end near?

Once Warner Brothers jumped ship, and Paramount started making similar noises, it was almost inevitable that the Next Gen DVD War might be drawing to an end. Too bad that it's gonna be Blu-Ray though - it proves to Sony that if they stamp their feet like an angry child they will eventually get their way.

Oh, well. I'll give it a while before I call this over, but the future looks dim for HD-DVD.

It is worth noting that Bill Gates, in a recent interview, had a good point when he stated that the future will see the end of discs as downloads and portable storage get cheaper, more reliable, and more prevalent.
