Snapshot

Knocked back smoky shots of Jameson at 12 Galaxies while watching concert videos of Franz Ferdinand and the Pixies on the big screen, until my friend's chin hit his not too sober chest while he was sitting upright, and I realized a perfectly Zen-like moment of contentment had been reached, thus indicating it was time to go.

Vacillating between recognition, fond or eerie nostalgia, and delight, I may have injured myself internally while holding in laughter during A Scanner Darkly. I can't say anything about it that doesn't sound like a glib blurb. I was relentlessly entertained.

Now, to kick the shoes off and maybe play a little Xenogears before bed. See you Monday, and I hope you'll have a Happy Morning.

Let The Eternal Sunshine In.

MAN I WANT TO SEE A SCANNER DARKLY SO BAD I AM ACTUALLY FLAILING IN UNCONTROLLABLE NEED OF IT

I caught the first 24 minutes online at IGN and am delighted at how close they kept to not only the book's events, but the unsettlingly amusing tone held throughout. And it's gorgeous. I always said Waking Life would've been better with a plot rather than a series of potheaded musings on existentialism.

I was so prepared for the Happy Mornings commercial to end violently. Those guys are like the fusion of the Burger King and all the pop whores we wish the media would forget to shove in our faces.

An army of the tanned damned marching to KC and the Sunshine Band. Brr.

fuseji take you all, and be STONE!

Re: Let The Eternal Sunshine In.

Oh, it was really well done -- there were some moments they captured perfectly. In some ways, I even found the film to be easier to digest than the book, because I actually had a visual context and didn't have as many "Wait, who is Arctor? Am I reading Arctor NOW? What just happened?" moments. Robert Downey Jr. and Woody Harrelson are fucking hysterical. And though I had my doubts about Winona, she played her role so well that she was actually giving me deja vu moments from my So Cal days. (Admittedly, playing a pretty, addled So Cal girl should not be a stretch for her.)

Keanu, as usual, excels in any role where he needs to look slightly confused for an hour and a half.

Though I loved Waking Life, it's exactly that.

EVERYBODY seemed to expect that commercial to end with violence. But no, it's merely the quiet, gradual violence of legal drug addiction. ^_^

you can sleep when you're deeeeeeaaaaddd...!
