Who saw the Minutemen?

I thought they were showing the Minutemen documentary twice during the Chicago Underground Film Festival but it looks like Saturday night was it.  Shoot I missed it now I'll have to wait for it to show up on Netflix.
 
The "Whole World's Watching" shows tonight. WWW contains a lot of footage and interviews from the Repulican National Convention in New York.  It's the work of a couple of Northwestern students who may or may not be influenced by one former member of the Weathermen/Political Party Convention Protestor, now a Northwestern faculty member.
 
Um, not related but I just noticed that no version of communism or socialism is in the thesaurus, although Roget made room for democratic and capitalist.
 
Oh and speaking the other day of shenanigans sure to make you famous.

I saw the Minutemen documentary at Rice. It was pretty good. Watt still looks kinda sick, though.

Cool. I put it in my Netflix queue but it's not yet available. They did that with the Jandek film and it didn't take long to come around. That was a cool little flick although I was dismayed that so few Houston "experts" showed up in the interviews. It was cool to see Ben Edmonds of WHPK in Chicago. He does a show called "Pure Hype" that reminds me of your old Local show on KTRU...when you had live bands.

Yeah, that Jandek documentary was pretty good (he's playing live again in Austin this weekend), but I was sorta put off by some of the subjects. Many of them seemed like the sort that spend their lives collecting things and never really producing things. Possibly I see too much of myself in them.

Yeah they didn't have many musicians in the bunch but then again I don't know any musicians who could give good Jandek commentary.
