It seems like even though I had time to get ready for this here job thing, that I found myself forgetting things, like the food I prepared for out here. Luckily, I had some snack stuff in the truck.
My first great action with the laptop, since I couldn’t get it to connect to either of the two unsecured signals, was to watch a movie called “Once.”
I really enjoyed it. It’s about a songwriter. It seems to spend an awful lot of the movie showcasing the songs, but that’s not too big a deal if you like the songs, which I do. There was a little awkward dialogue in there, but I think that’s my only complaint. It doesn’t have a typical Hollywood ending, but it has an ending that I felt made sense based on what we as the audience know about the characters. It’s nice seeing a movie pay attention to the wants and needs of its characters rather than forcing something that doesn’t fit. And he does something a little grandiose for those of you who need a little over the top romanticism, but even that doesn’t detract from it. I sort of walked away from the movie realizing that neither character is likely to be happy, but that they made the choices the were likely to make.
I sorted some Cyberpunk cards while I was watching, and I guess what amazes me is how many TV shows and movies I will probably end up watching going through all those boxes. So I guess some folks need to make me a list of good stuff, so I can get to it.
