Fahrenheit Hawaii

Been watching the news on “Fahrenheit 9/11” lately, anticipating its release in the U.S. I just recently read “Stupid White Men” and am halfway through “Dude, Where’s My Country.” Most of the same will probably be in this film, but Moore’s got a way of rehashing things and making them fun again.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it’s opening in Canada anytime soon. I read that Alliance Atlantis has picked up the distribution in Canada, but I haven’t been able to locate a theatre or a release date anywhere. I don’t want to have to go to the U.S. to see it either. They might fingerprint me, or something. Last time I went through U.S. Customs, they practically had me undress to my skivvies. I had to remove my shoes, hat, belt (yes, completely out of the loops and everything). I even had to unbutton my pants and down the zipper. When the metal detector passed over the nipples, they almost had me remove my shirt too (heh)! I got them back by pretending to enjoy it, asking (eagerly) if there was anything else they wanted from me.

The worst part of that customs nightmare was that A) it almost made us late for our flight, and B) it was only because the plane was refuelling in Honolulu! I spent maybe an hour on “U.S. soil”, and even then was only allowed access to maybe 1500 square feet of it. We literally got off the plane, walked around a corner, and got back on the plane again.

Anyway. Talked to an American dude on the phone today (the son of an ISP owner), and he brought up the topic of “Fahrenheit 9/11” on his own. He’s totally in to it, thinks Moore is a complete spaz, and thinks Bush will lose by a landslide. Nice kid.
