as many of you know, i love me some documentaries

this one is unlike any i have seen before. i saw an excerpt of it in an episode of showtime's TV version of This American life

at the age of 38, mark hogancamp had his shit fucked up severely by 5 dudes at a bar. he has to relearn how to live a normal life without the memories of the past, and his treatment is then cut off. what follows is equal parts amazing art and what many could perceive as a crippling retreat from reality

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMWFhplFSEQ&feature=player_embedded

so, i'd endeavor to say this isn't so much about the documentary or a broad thread about the movies so much as it's some shit i slap on your face and you gotta roll it around on the tongue and then brain. ain't this crazy? here's a gallery of some of the photographs he took

http://www.marwencol.com/gallery/

i can't say i've really seen anything like it

    its a documentary. i'll be honest, even if the subject matter is creepy and the dude is a little creepy, as you learn more everything he does has a strange way of making sense

    NetFux keeps recommending this to me. Usually they're pretty solid about showing me shit I would like, but there was that time that Pokemon 4eva was recommended "based on your interest in Doctor Who."

    Is Netfux a sub-company owned by Micro$soft?

    Secret of the Kells is on instant watch now. I'm gonna watch it as soon as I have a day where I don't have to take a training course or go to play tabletop games.

    Possibly at night if Sarah's up for it.

    I picked four completely disparate things from my queue, it seemed funny

    Also for some reason the first season of the l word isn't on streaming so it's pointless to start that up if you haven't seen it

    Do you like doctor who? The first four seasons of the relaunch and all of torchwood are on streaming. I can't recommend it enough.

    How much of an impact were nickelodeon cartoons on your childhood? Basically everything classic from the nineties is streaming right now, and also some newer stuff. Rocko's modern life, aah! real monsters, rugrats, invader zim, danny phantom.

    There are a bunch of other good cartoons, too. Phineas and ferb. And a ton of good movies. Have you ever seen auntie mame?

    I hear real good things about Secret of Kells. I should watch that too.

    Unforgivable Blackness is a good boxing documentary on instant if you're in that kind of mood.

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.

    Do it. You will not be sorry.

    Seriously, that movie is a work of art.

    It's not my favorite animated film, mind you, and it has its share of flaws, but a LOT of hard work and love was poured into it, and it really shows.

    I saw this on PBS on independent lens a week ago. Really touching story.

    I thought it was cool that they didn't give the thugs who attacked him more than a mention. They didn't even say who their criminal cases went down. I hope they got some real prison time. I also hope that if I ever get massive brain damage and amnesia that the new foolproof turns out cool like Mark Hogancamp.

    A friend of mine at work suggested this and got me to watch the first 10 minutes of it. It seems really interesting, he's a really good photographer. Think it might be a bit hard to watch personally since i'm probably a few degrees away from doing the same with Cybertron or something.

    If you want a documentary to watch that makes you feel better about your station in life watch The Wild and Wondeful Whites, it's also on instant watch.

    As are the entirety of the Kids in the Hall, Futurama and Top Gear.

    By "makes you feel better about your station" do you mean in an uplifting way or in a shadenfreude way? I know nothing about that movie shy of the title.

    Closer to schadenfreude. It's a documentary about a year in the life of the White family of West Virginia and whoever coined the term white trash was referring to them.

    Wow I own some of the same figures he has in that movie/pictures.

    The movie does look really interesting but sadly if it comes here it's going to cost $20 or more because the two theathers that show odd flims one serves beer the other is in the up scale part of town
