I've voted in the past three presidential elections, but never before on Super Tuesday. All of that changed this year. This is one of the most exciting and important elections in recent history. And I'm not talking about the Republicans. I'm talking about Obama vs. Hillary. If you live in a state that's having it's primaries today, please go out and vote!
I'm a California resident now, so here's the info you'll need: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/elections_ppl.htm

From the Sundance Film Festival's official site:
A Special Jury Prize: Dramatic, Work by an Ensemble Cast was presented to the cast of CHOKE. An adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel, CHOKE is the sardonic story about mother and son relationship, fear of aging, sexual addiction, and the dark side of historical theme parks. Cast: Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Kelly MacDonald, Brad Henke.
Okay, that news title was lame. And I must confess, I spent a minute too long thinking of it. But hell, with a title like Choke, it simple screams for witty puns.
Over the past few days, reviews of Choke from Sundance have continued to pour in. Here are some more for you all. Notice that, there hasn't really been one critic yet who has overall disliked the film. It's been mainly positive, with people loving it, liking it, or simply being entertained by it, albeit, pointing out some minor flaws.
With Choke being nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, things are really heating up with for director Clark Gregg.
