My friend Mike Feldman just opened up a swanky gaming store on 11640 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD. Just want all of you to know that. The store's name is X3O. It's got games, training, technical support services, drinks, and very comfortable cushions. It's opened until 2 a.m. on weekends. If you live in the suburban Maryland area, be sure to check it out.

On another positive note, I saw "Me and You and Everyone We Know" this weekend. It's the first noteworthy movie this year. Steven Spielberg, you should be ashamed of making "War of the Worlds." It's a very artistic, meticulously calculated film with lots of unforgettable moments. Compared to another film involving children, Todd Solondz's "Palindromes," this film surpasses it because it focuses more on the innocence of children rather than their precociousness. One cool scene goes like this: The father tells the kids to "be like kids and do what kids do." And that's only one cool scene. There are many more...

Ms. Miranda July, the film's writer and director, is a joy to watch. This is a refreshing movie because it midst of Hollywood's cliches and silliness, at last there's something that courageously tackles real issues instead of focusing on aliens who are doomed to fail invading the earth because of our air. This air is different than that air.

Check out Ms. July's blog. It's not much different from mine, except it has more photos.

If you were to watch two movies this year, wtach "Me and You" and "Batman Begins."
