Happy Nobel Prize
I have my doubts this this
remake (via Ceej's
black book) of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate
Factory. Johnny Depp is no Gene Wilder
and if anything, is
… freakier than Wilder's portrayal of the reclusive confectioner;
more androgenous—more wacked out fasion designer if you will. The movie
also has this wierd Clockwork Orange vibe to it,
not in the “ol' ultra-violent in-out in-out” manner, but set-wise, the
future as seen through a 60s sensibility (guess that means Charlie will
hanging out with his droogs at the milk chocolate bar).
And now I'm earwormed with the music from the preview! Aaaaaaaaaaah!
Make it stop!

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
