CBS News: From the archives: 60 minutes interview with John Nash
What’s Streaming Now - A BEAUTIFUL MIND (2001) Russell Crowe, in an Oscar-nominated role, portrays John Forbes Nash Jr., the mathematician who battled schizophrenia before going on to win the Nobel in economic science. Jennifer Connelly won for best supporting actress as Alicia Larde, the M.I.T. student who became Nash’s wife. The paradox of this Ron Howard film (which won for best picture, director and adapted screenplay) and the emotions it elicits is that the story “is almost entirely counterfeit,” A. O. Scott wrote in The Times. “The governing dynamic of ‘A Beautiful Mind’ is sentimentality of a familiar and not altogether unwelcome kind. The movie can — indeed, should — be intellectually rejected, but you can’t quite banish it from your mind.” Mr. Nash and his wife were killed in a car crash on Saturday. (iTunes)

“The good, bad and the ugly; Livin deep inside a me.
“With the lovin’ strangely beautiful; Take their place whenever the need
“I’m a walking contradiction; Taking chances to see if I’m free
“I’m a lonely boundary rider; Red Blooded Soul Survivor
“A lovin priest of high drama — that’s me.”

From CGee: Souths lose - It was a frantic, fast, hard hitting first half of footy, Souths had their opportunities to score but Melbourne led 16-2. Souths came back to start the second half with strong trys from Johnston and Gray. Calls went for and against, Souths kept coming and never gave up but the tenacious Storm held on to win, 16-12.

From CGee: "What a great game of footy! St. George played the first half with flare, offloading the ball, having most of the possession and Souths just hung on, making them work for their meters. Souths came out in the second half noses to the grindstone, Adam Reynolds kicking was on fire, and with a huge defensive stand late in the game Souths defeat St. George 16-10. It was a confidence building win we needed, against a team playing at the top of their game!"

PAST THE OVERFLOW
Let me ride past the West horizon
Let me leave the noise behind me,
All those women coming at me
I'm tired of talk and people
Past the West horizon
Where the wild winds blow___________________________________________________________________________________
