Netroots Nation Miscellaneous Panel Photoblogging

There were some panels I just didn’t get a lot of photos of, due to either time or lighting constraints. Some photos from the campaign finance reform panel, and the “Building A 21st Century Economy” panel.

Professor Lawrence Lessig. He gave a fantastic presentation on our corrupt finance system and the need for public campaign financing, but the house lights never came back up afterward…

Dave Donnelly of the Public Campaign Action Fund.

Dave again. The low light makes his eyes look like they’re almost all pupil, which is either kinda cool or kinda scary.

SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger, and economist Dean Baker.

Moderator Kevin Drum. Trivia: His old blog, Political Animal, was my introduction to the world of blogs and commenting. So you all have him to blame.

Important Movie Alert

This Saturday at 9PM, the Sci-Fi Channel SyFy will be showing The Greatest Movie Ever Made, Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus.

If you’re unsure whether this is worth two hours of your life, you should probably review my list of 11 reasons why Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus is The Awesomest Movie Of All Time.

You’ll thank me.

UPDATE: The 7:00 movie is Malibu Shark Attack, which is pretty hilarious in its own right.

Netroots Nation Valerie Jarrett Photoblogging

From Baratunde Thurston’s chat with Obama friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett. To be truthful, Baratunde was photographically a lot more interesting…

Friday Quote & Guinea Pig Blogging

This week’s quote is from Jacques Tourneur’s Night Of The Demon, with Dana Andrews:

She believes that she can see – she can.  She believes that she is alive – she is.  She believes that you will die tomorrow night – and you will.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s guinea pigs…

Guinea pigs like scritches, apparently.  Good to know.
