    We took a break from our usual “look-how-shitty-the-world-is” documentaries this weekend and watched Being Elmo[/url] on Netflix. Really nice film; I have a new respect for puppeteers.

    I just watched this yesterday. Great story!

    Just finished. Very awesome, very touching story. Nearly lost it at several points, especially the Make a Wish scene.

    The rest are on youtube if you follow the numbers: Chernobyl and Jonestown. Both are good documentaries IMO.

    Indeed, there were definitely some emotional moments in there. Amazing how many lives he’s touched through something as seemingly simple as a puppet—he’s a very talented and gifted man.

    I really liked the Singing Revolution[/url] about Estonia’s peaceful fight for independence from the Soviets. It’s really personal for me, my parents were born there and escaped during WWII. My mom was 18 when she had to leave Estonia and my dad was 23 (they met here in the States). I was in Estonia in July, 1991, a month before the USSR collapsed and Estonia gained her freedom.

    Reviving an old thread here after watching a terrific documentary today.

    The Sheik is the story of the wrestler, The Iron Sheik. Amazing life story, pretty big fall from grace, been reborn as an internet sensation (and the only reason I started reading Twitter). Even if you’ve never watched professional wrestling, this is totally worth checking out.

    Gateway has been celebrating documentaries all weekend. Plenty of interesting choices, but I know my wife well. Watched A Year in Champagne last night with ThaMissus and it was gorgeous.

    Followed the movie with Alana’s state minimum pricing and wonderful dining al fresco.
    A night well spent.
