Jean-Luc Godard?s ?Made in U.S.A.? is being billed as a ?classic mod film noir,? but don?t let any of that fool you. It?s still the same old rubbish that was passed off as art and was popular back in the 1960s. Fueled by tensions created by the Cold War and dressed up by dialogue that became popular during the beatnik era from the decade before, this sort of story telling is absolutely idiotic, convoluted mishmash presented as intellectual observation of the shenanigans of the day. I am not quite sure what this film is about.

The British invasion hits Burbank in the shape of MODS production company.Ian Robinson's vision of the future is quite graphic. It is animated. It is stylized. It's digital, and part of it will take place from a 6,500-square-foot new North Varney Street studio, influenced by images he and his colleagues have seen from their native Britain and fueled by their graphic design skills. Robinson and his colleagues, Simon Reeves, Stephen Marsh and Toby Evetts have started MODS, a new production company that caters to entertainment productions who simply need space, or who need production services from MODS staffers, who do everything from creating three-dimensional graphics to motion-capture elements for everything from television to video games.

Kudos to Derrick Kolus for his excellent research on energy-efficient school buildings. It has been clear since the topic of dual-pane windows was first raised in the Budget Advisory Committee almost a year ago that BUSD has neglected to do its homework on research-based school design. We took up Derrick on his challenge to "make the call" and he gave us some additional information. According to Lisa Heschong of the Heschong Mahone Group, the practice of lowering classroom ceilings should be outlawed.

Swinging London in the spring of 1967 was a feverish hot house of British big beat, the very latest mod fashions and a burgeoning psychedelic culture. Music was ruled by the Rolling Stones and Beatles, yet in the Ides of March saw a version of the 20-year-old country & western standard "Please Release Me" roar to the top of the UK charts and remain there for six weeks. The singer was, of course, Engelbert Humperdinck and the record ignited one of the most extraordinary careers in pop music.
