A Post For The Capital Region

If you're looking for a fun movie to watch some evening when nothing is going on (and you don't mind a few English sub-titles*) I recommend DHOOM:2! It's a cleverly crafted visually stunning adventure - musical - fantasy film out of Bollywood. Compared to the usual American film fare, it is delicieux. The presentation methods and formatting may startle you at first, but after you watch I think you'll agree DHOOM:2 is a motion picture joyride. No cuss words! Great dance numbers! I have the 2-DVD all-region set which I borrowed from the Bethlehem Public Library.

*the sub-titles don't overwhelm the picture: there is a fair amount of English dialog. This film is best viewed on a large-screen HDTV with a 5.1 sound system. The DVD features alternate language and sub-title tracks including English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Dutch, Portugese, Indian Kannada and Malayalam.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
