Went to a program over lunch sponsored by the company’s diversity networks. It included a showing of the 1994 Best Live Action Short film Trevor with an introduction by Ellen DeGeneres. Below is the intro and the trailer for the short is here. Please watch them, and if you get an opportunity to see the full short, do watch it. And stop by the Trevor Project’s home page.
From one of my colleagues in Poland:
Well, I don’t know why but that brings a memory of what I read about Lord of the rings….
You see, back in the communist era, there were people that were writing things aligned to what the party’s doctrine was and so some idiot wrote a review of the LotR
And so in his review, sauron was a poor land owner who was struggling with adverse actions lead by the revolutionary hobbits who were ugly sinners because they were so close with each other and wanted to grab Sauron’s land.
Totally skewed view of the whole book. Now, it’s entertaining to read, hehe.

Not a movie I even heard of, but one I am very glad I saw. I highly recommend it. Oh, and be Italian!

Admin: “You know those supplies you had me order last November?”
Me: “Ummmm….. maybe…..”

I feel really bad for Bob, as he had a light bulb in that order.
This is awesome!
