Small Pecker Syndrome

[UPDATE: this video link was killed earlier today by a certain corporate entity, thus we are sincerely sorry]
As advertised…

This is a truly interesting documentary about the one thing men don’t want to talk about and the one thing that men constantly think about: wee wee’s.

RioFest International Film Festival


The second RioFest International Environmental Film Festival kicks off this weekend in Socorro.

The event features 17 independent films, panels, a benefit luncheon and a discussion with performance artist, explorer and octogenarian activist Katie Lee. Lee battled the flooding of Glen Canyon in the 1960s and is only the third woman to run all of the Grand Canyon’s river rapids.

The events all take place at the Macey Center at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. The festival takes place Jan. 25-26.

Among the films are "Gimme Green," about America’s obsession with lawns, and "French Fries to Go" about Telluride, Colo.’s biodiesel project.

There will be panels on Rio Grande water issues and discussions with filmmakers. A GreenFeast on Saturday will raise funds for an ecologically friendly bus shelter at Socorro’s public charter school.

For more information, go to [LINK]

Thanks to our on-the-ground correspondent in Socorro, New Mexico, we found out about this tight festival going down in the cut of New Mexico. We thought it was appropriate to mention the festival on the site because it was the source of yesterday’s documentary, "Oil on Ice." Among other films, we also heard that Love Song to Glen Canyon, mentioned above, about an 80 year old environmentalist, is a really good flick. Try to check it out if you can and let us know what you think. You can check out a clip below.

Oil on Ice - Documentary

In a slight departure from our usual weekly documentary format, we present to you Oil on Ice. No, this isn’t Disney on Ice, but rather a documentary film about drilling in the arctic.

Jesus Camp - Weekly Doc

Hey kids, it’s Monday, and you know that’s when we usually bring the weekly documentary. We know ya’ll are at work (usually, albeit not today) and therefore possibly don’t watch these right away - but we like to put them up early in the week hoping that you think about them during the week and make a bit of time to be entertained and educated. Or something like it. This week’s documentary is Jesus Camp; the IMDB synopsis is down below. Just to let you know, you can obviously watch this video right here on myninjaplease, just to preview it, but you can also click the video frame and watch it on google, which will let you see it in a bigger window.

Jesus Camp follows several young children as they prepare to attend a summer camp where the kids will get their daily dose of evangelical Christianity. Becky Fischer works at the camp, which is named Kids on Fire. Through interviews with Fischer, the children, and others, Jesus Camp illustrates the unswerving belief of the faithful. A housewife and homeschooling mother tells her son that creationism has all the answers. Footage from inside the camp shows young children weeping and wailing as they promise to stop their sinning. Child after child is driven to tears. Juxtapose these scenes with clips from a more moderate Christian radio host (who is appalled by such tactics), and Jesus Camp seems to pose a clear question: are these children being brainwashed? Written by Ken Miller {} from IMDB

In other news, it’s MLK Day so we’re gonna take it easy and just see what comes.

Enron - The Smartest Guys in the Room

Those of you who regularly read our site (aka real cats) know that we try to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the world with relevant documentaries on a weekly basis. Last week we had one on dolls-. That being said, this one is a little old but accurately explains the Enron controversy. It also elucidates the California brownout issue and even goes as far as to call out Arnold Schwarzenegger.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s a good watch.
