I'm a web developer/sysadmin/host (NERD TRIPLE THREAT!) and this is my attempt to write about...leaving the house. Sometimes. Like, to go backpacking. And take some pictures. And justify spending the money on all the gear WHY SO MUCH?!?

Feel free to write and complain.

I give this movie .23 What's-the-Problem-Occifers
Smokey and the Bandit was a 1977 feature film that was Not Star Wars. It was a sober (!) meditation on many of American society's ills at her bicentennial. Some of the topics covered were

3) Police fitness for duty
4) American cars and cornering
9) Class warfare
10) The peak of American masculinity and attractiveness
