Argh, I am discovering that I tend towards video blogging, so prepare for my spamming of your f-list with vids I found interesting...

1. Fight of the Century: Keynes vs Hayek Round Two--totally worth a look if you have a basic understanding of macroeconomics and the recession... or if you just like hip hop or people rapping in suits I suppose...



2. The Cove--just finished watching this Oscar-winning documentary on dolphin capture and slaughter in Taiji, Japan.  I dunno what to think about it yet, but I do know that the water turning red from the blood of dolphins is something you don't forget... I think what makes the film sit sort of uneasily with me is the fact that it is a sensational documentary (with Rolling Stone calling it 'The Bourne Identity Meets Flipper', I guess it's sort of expected)... that's all well and dandy if the film makes a change or impact, otherwise it's just propaganda gone flat... I guess as someone who studied journalism as a non-biased tool of reporting, the intense slant of the documentary just throws me a bit off.  But regardless, yes, definitely worth a watch, informative and emotive, also it's dolphins--my favorite animal from ages 6-14, well, except for that one year when I decided I wanted a pet giraffe--really, what's not to like?
