Share 2007 with Jonas Mekas

I have made my first New Year's resolution of 2007. I resolve to, every day, watch a new film by Jonas Mekas.

Mekas is a legendary avant-garde filmmaker, who's been at it for six decades years now. He hung with...and made films about...Andy Warhol, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Allen Ginsberg, and Salvador Dali. Oh, he also started Film Culture magazine and has been a film reviewer for the Village Voice for 48 years.

For 2007, Mekas is going to make a three to seven minute video every day. They'll be posted on his website, and available via iTunes.

I'm looking forward to looking.

Ooooo that's a good resolution to start 2007 with -- his films are fantastic, and the project sounds amazing. I'm going for the whole "less work, more play" angle.
