~ I got fresh [ :: crack! :: ] (and many related smiles...)
~ I can tell that I raised a few hackles, if not just eyebrows, with the last two morning posts... please try and understand... I don't think I have answers to these issues... I am at odds with myself over the two sides of the coin... and I only talk about stuff like that because it makes me think... and the feedback helps me think more completely. Don't ever hesitate to call me on issues... I have never faulted a person for commenting with their own attitude in my journal. I know I've become scary corto before... but that has only ever been when an unjustified attack was levelled at me. so... just don't hesitate. thinking is good... and you help. :D
~ I have been sooooo busy today it's goofy... there are mountains of paper on my desk... with little sticky notes poking out of them at what appears to be random intervals... I am officially swamped.
~ remember I mentioned that cool tool thing that searches for recently posted pictures in LJ? yeah, well I met a person in an eastern block country via that... and I'm almost speechless about how cool that is to me... !!!
~ how ... how on earth can a person justify taking another persons pictures from LJ and sharing them as if they were pictures of themselves... it just makes no sense to me. I assume, of course, there has to be wicked self-esteem issues at play in a situation like that... but... hello???? it's not like you can get away with that shit.
~ I remain completely disappointed with Kill Bill vol.1 ... Lucy Lui takes five minutes to remove her shoes... and the blood thing... I mean, the first dozen times ... I can sorta understand... but the millionth time? just dumb... I kept seeing the seeds of a powerful story ... but it's like every time the plot could have built on a story, it turned left to spite the story in favour of killing something by chopping off one of it's limbs. I know it's a terantino "art" thing... but for a wimpy hour and half movie length, too much time was waisted doing the same dumb ass thing over and over. And, personally, I was insulted by the transparent attempts to shock me with the kiddie elements. Planting a child in the middle of outrageous carnage will not distract me from noticing that the movie was nothing besides a series of animated "action gore posters".... with nothing connecting them. ok... all done with that now. :D
~ dinner at my folks house tonight... then survivor ... then... maybe some geek time... :)
