Dynamic Movie Search
I own a modest number of movies, about 150. I've been meaning to write up my thoughts on all of them and how they ended up in my collection. One thing I wondered about was how to search the list of movie titles. This will be the first practical application of the XmlHttpRequest object.
I want to film a series of short pieces about my life in Dallas. I want to experiment with shooting them in the style of various directors: Ozu, Peckinpah, Anderson, Linklater, Frankenheimer, etc. The first in the series is a mock car chase up Central Expressway past downtown Dallas with a hopefully Frankenheimer feel to it.
I've long been fascinated by tools that manage the information overload that is the web. My own small effort has been to detect substantive changes on websites and to keep people informed of those changes. This is something I started three years ago for the dfwblogs.com site but it has fallen into disrepair since then. I've got some fresh ideas about change detection, and database management that I'd like to code in.
