“Reviewing Chinese Democracy is not like reviewing music. It's more like reviewing a unicorn. Should I primarily be blown away that it exists at all? Am I supposed to compare it to conventional horses? To a rhinoceros? Does its pre-existing mythology impact its actual value, or must it be examined inside a cultural vacuum, as if this creature is no more (or less) special than the remainder of the animal kingdom? I've been thinking about this record for 15 years; during that span, I've thought about this record more than I've thought about China, and maybe as much as I've thought about the principles of democracy.”

Numerous backpack reviews.
This is why I love Ebert. You'd think that after a lifetime of reviewing films he'd be jaded cynical about something as big as “Indy”. It's easier to grumble and hate; Ebert's awesome because he *loves movies*. By the way, I can't wait to see this flick.
This is amazing — 20 years of Ebert's reviews. Simply outstanding.
Great roundup of GPS units
