June 2017 News

June 2017 newsletter with links on dysgenics, genetics, AI, PC history, and 5 movie reviews

This is the June 2017 edition of the newsletter; previous, May 2017 (archives). This is a collation of links and summary of major changes, overlapping with my Changelog; brought to you by my donors on Patreon.





  • L.A. Confidential (one of the best noir films; Exley is particularly interesting as neither hero nor anti-hero)

  • Amy (2015) (review)

  • 8 1⁄2 (a lame waste of time; not remotely funny nor insightful nor rendered sufficiently interesting by the now-exotic setting of 1960s Catholic Italy, as the making of 8 1⁄2 is Fellini’s excuse for making 8 1⁄2 in a third-rate breaking-the-fourth-wall exercise)

  • Annie Hall (a few one-liners aside, Woody Allen’s neurotic humor is unbearable to watch. It would seem that Allen movies are not for me.)
