Vanishing Point
I have never seen Vanishing Point before yesterday. I have seen many car chase movies: Gone in 60 Seconds, Death Race 2000 and the remake and its sequels, The Cannonball Run, Convoy, Smokey and the Bandit and the sequels, Bullitt, The Blues Brothers, Mad Max, Race With the Devil, Drive Angry, Ronin, and that glorious 90 seconds of screentime that feels like ten minutes of speeding the wrong way on the freeway in To Live and Die in LA - my personal favorite car chase scene of all time. Many others.

Vanishing Point is the Platonic ideal of car chase movies.

I should play Driver: San Francisco again - one of the thirteen movie-inspired challenges is from Vanishing Point.

Not quite the correct word...
Promo marketing email received recently: "In a perfect world, companies would be mind-readers that know precisely what the consumer wants and when they want it. But telekinesis is something best left to the X-Men."

The Need for Editors, installment n
The first line of a 1-paragraph bio I just read describes the person as a "3 dementional artist". That's not saying they're a sculptor or modeler, that's saying they're three kinds of crazy.
