Catching Up #4 - February 29, 2008

Spring training games have started. The Giants have won some and lost some. Vizquel is out for the whole Cactus League season.
The new hotel at Fifth and Mission opened today.
Alain Robbe-Grillet died. I remember reading Le Voyeur in college. It was a hard slog. I saw Last Year at Marienbad about the same time.
William S Buckley also died. I didn't like most of his ideas, but I liked the way he expressed them.
TCM was showing Seven Samurai the other night. The subtitles looked new. They had black borders around the white letters and some of the swear words were translated correctly.
I took this photo at Pac Bell Park on 09-June-2007.
