Theroux

Louis Theroux, Monday nights, BBC2. Watch this man. This is the second series I have watched. Last night the programme was looking at the Boers, there desire for their own state, and what the underlying thoughts were. Very interesting, and ultimately very depressing. There are still a lot of closed minds, and isolated figures in that country. If you ever catch any repeats of his last series make sure you catch the interview with the leader of the Klu Klux Klan. As I am currently paying for the entire phone call when I use the Internet, I am using it as sparingly as possible. The adjustment (from the 24/7 unmetered access I had) has been brutal. I find myself starting …

Weird Samba

Brazil. The film. Strange. Very, very strange. It’s age is obvious, but that aside it is entirely uninvolving. It’s not the most painful movie I’ve seen but more of a time-filler than anything. Ben-Hur is next on the list. Quiet weekend. Half-Life practice soon. Then more time mucking about in DreamWeaver. Shouldn’t we be doing more? Yes, usual constraints are stopping us though… and once again we didn’t win the lottery. Sigh. 😉

X-Men

X-Men. See it. Saturday night, Guinness, and a productive day behind us. Good day, in some respects, same old crap day in others. I wish life would let you have a day where it doesn’t have to remind you and kick you. Another quiet day in prospect tomorrow, then back to work. Same old, same old. Hassles still there, not fully resolved. God I wish it was 6 months from now, at present every time we begin to see daylight, someone dumps another pile of crap on us.

Double X

Tomorrow – 7pm, Odeon Springfield Quay. X-Men. I hope it lives up to the hype, mind you there hasn’t been THAT much hype, more a simmering desire. I’m behind. No, not behind you, behind in my schedule… I need to start on Project X. Need to have another discussion with C about it first. Then I’ll need to plan it properly, then… sigh… add a few more hours to the day… hmmm it might need to go on hold until I get things sorted. That’s the thing about interesting discussions, they are always the first thing to start moving down the priority list. Project X? Hell, I had to call it something.

Ally

McBeal appeal. Just finished watching it, I still don’t know why it hits home, every week there is something that jars me and I think “Damn that’s right!”. They are beginning to inspire me to write some stuff (after a healthy absence). Oh, still trying to get my re-direct changed, and the re-design is still on – it will be a pretty radical departure from the current, white, grey and blue, but you’ll have to wait and see (as will I as I haven’t decided what to do with it yet!).

Happy joy

Happy happy joy joy… working at home but not actually minding it as much as I thought I would. M:I2 last night, was OK. It has taken me until now to figure out what irked me about it. It felt constrained, like it was holding back. A time-bomb that never went off. Think the weekend will be good.
