Why Customers Are Always Wrong Part 1000

"Are you showing The Lovely Bones in 3D here?"

Why Customers Are Always Wrong Part 1001

"You know, only here would Avatar in 3D be big news. Because back in America they're showing it right, the way it was meant to be. In 4D. All screenings of Avatar there are in 4D."

A Moment of Anjelica

January 13, 2010

It's not that I'm bored so much as financially housebound.
I've indulged some old hobbies, taken up a new one, re-watched all The A-Team episodes you could imagine, worked and worked some more... but still, I am essentially housebound and growing incredibly numb of mind because of it.
I go out sometimes. But are you aware that a good many things out there involve the spending of money? And if I spend the money now, I won't have it to pay for a trip back home which I dearly want to happen soon.
So... to reiterate...
It's not that I'm bored so much as financially housebound.
I'm working on creating my own diversions.
Some days are more successful than others.
I'd like to say that catnapping is not one of my hobbies but it kind of is. (And I don't mean the sort of catnap where one sleeps, either.)

One day when I'm no longer on Alcatraz I will look back on this time and be grateful that I found the discipline required to put money aside instead of blowing it on pointless material objects but, to quote Aragorn, IT IS NOT THIS DAY.

I'm not unhappy.
I'm just restless.
And I think that's fair enough. January is typically full of doldrums anyway.

Thoughts On The A-Team Movie Trailer

"This is... huh. Different."

"Oooh, the van! I love the van."

"Okay, I take back what I said about Liam Neeson being no good as Hannibal."

"Bradley Cooper is no Dirk Benedict."

"Why does BA now remind me of a barely-literate gansta-rapper instead of a fool-hating wrestling aficionado who loves milk?"

"This has Michael Bay all over it. How did he not direct this?"

"Man I hate Jessica Biel."

"I reiterate: Bradley Cooper is no Dirk Benedict."

"Overall it kind of just looks bad. Not awesome-bad like the show, but plain ordinary no-good bad."
I'm a bit late in admiring the work of photographer Nick Knight. He's been creating sumptuous images for leading magazines for quite some time and is the founder and director of the fashion and art internet broadcasting channel SHOWstudio.com. But better late than not at all when it comes to portraits as arresting and gorgeous as his.
