Eddie Izzard: Glorious

Eddie Izzard's routine has a loose trajectory from the beginning of the Old Testament and the creation of the world in seven days to Revelations; God, in the voice of James Mason, makes several appearances. Along the way, Izzard dramatizes or comments on the search for a career, bad giraffes, Prince Philip's gaffes, toilets in French campsites, the mysteries of hopscotch, becoming one's Dad, getting a computer to print, and his court victory after being the victim of tranny bashing. Izzard calls his bits "mimes," in part because his physical comedy is sans props. Filmed at Labatt's Apollo Theatre, Izzard is in a shimmering red pants suit and low heels.

The Confessions of Robert Crumb (1987)

Here's a 55 minute long BBC documentary about my favorite cartoonist. This precedes the Terry Zwigoff film bio "Crumb" by 7 years. Nowhere near as in-depth or powerful as the Zwigoff film, but probably an enjoyable view for fellow R. Crumb devotees nonetheless.


BBC: Inside the Perfect Predator

Soaring above the people of London is the fastest animal on the planet, the peregrine falcon, on a mission to kill for her chicks.

Off the coast of South Africa the world's largest predatory fish, the great white shark, has just completed a 7000 mile journey and is hungry for seal blubber. On the plains of Africa, the fastest land animal, the cheetah, struggles to provide for her cubs as her enemies move in. And having survived a drought by entering into a state of suspended animation, the prehistoric Nile crocodile is poised to ambush his dinner.

With ground-breaking computer graphics and incredible close-up photography, this documentary reveals the inner alchemy that gives these four extraordinary hunters the edge - from the moment they detect their prey through to the vital kill. But who is the Perfect Predator?

Sand Flea Jumping Robot

Sand Flea is an 11-lb robot with one trick up its sleeve: Normally it drives like an RC car, but when it needs to it can jump 30 feet into the air. An onboard stabilization system keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings. Current development of Sand Flea is funded by the The US Army's Rapid Equipping Force. For more information visit www.BostonDynamics.com.
