classic beard

I'd like to thank the academy...

Woke up this morning from a dream where I was being recognized for my work as technical advisor on Quentin Tarantino's latest documentary. Clips of the movie were shown; I'd apparently provided some coherent technical explanation (which was explicitly mentioned to the audience) and had a role in planting certain evidence on the web so that it looked like it had been there all along (which (1) was only ever implicit (2) was originally "part of the joke" except that it turned out to be real, for some reason having to do with how I planted it) (which was not explicit, but there.) clips of the movie were shown, I only remember darkness and car chases, and remember-remembering some dialog and plot (ah, dreams... "it made sense at the time" :-)

Oh, and some of my relatives were there - and it wasn't in a big hall, more like a lecture hall with pews and a projection screen (I remember my background being explained verbally and being displayed in text on the screen, but not quite fitting and being scrolled around.)

Just thought I'd share that - mostly because of the phrase "Quentin Tarantino's latest documentary"...
