Movie of the Year

300


300 is a remarkable piece of art, it’s fresh and new-a sort of modern opera brought to the big screen. The bloody gore is very artistic.

Book of the Year

The Last Human
A Guide to Twenty-Two Species of Extinct Humans
By G. J. Sawyer (Author), Viktor Deak (Author), Esteban Sarmiento (Author), Richard Milner (Author)
 
Remarkable in scope and clarity, this stunning collaboration among scientists, scholars and artists reveals the vast panorama of hominid evolution. 

As chapters move chronologically from our most primitive antecedents, the poorly known "ape-men" of the African Sahel, through more well-known ancestors, such as the Australopithicines, Homo habilis and Neanderthals, the data grows in complexity and quantity; happily, fictional accounts of individual hominids draw readers into each new chapter.
 

Illustrated with astonishingly life-like portraits of long-gone species, this volume also includes appendices that describe in detail how those portraits were achieved. Both inspiring and humbling, this look at humanity's ancestors-the worlds they inhabited, the challenges they faced and the legacies they left behind-is fascinating, informative, and deeply provocative.

Documentary of the Year

The 11th Hour
 
My homie leo did a great job on this documentary about how humans have damaged the earth and what chance we still may have of reversing the destruction is hard to summarize, since it's a breathless amalgam of fact and opinion from dozens of experts and pundits. But here's a try: The planet is nearing meltdown. 

It's not just global warming. It began with the industrial revolution, when we started mistakenly looking on nature as external to us and endlessly exploitable. Forests have undergone major destruction.
 
The ocean is turning stagnant. The soil itself is largely damaged everywhere. Worst of all, 50,000 species a year are becoming extinct, and no ecosystem can be identified as improving. Not to mention the fact that humans suffer from increasing numbers of diseases our pollution causes. At fault is the overproduction of non-sustainable manufactures, the immense waste and destruction, and the sustaining (unsustainably) of vastly more people than the planet can support. Behind all this the primary cause is the fuels we use, petroleum being the primary one.

Person of the Year

Kemo Dedic
(a.k.a. no.7)

Ok, I know this is hard to believe but there were so many candidates for this year and it was really difficult to choose the right person. So, I came up with the idea to nominate myself because I didn’t want to offend anyone. I probably haven’t done as much stuff as some of the people we know from the media but here a few things that I’ve done in 2007 and it means a lot to me:
I made a website ( www.beyondgenes.com ) to support the scientific community.
I’ve donated money to various charities.
I think that I’ve inspired a lot of people with my journal.
I’m currently working on my first book.
And I’ve learned some new stuff about life.

MILF of the YEAR!

And the winner is… Angelina Jolie!
