Week 15

So, it's time for a late weekly blogpost. The reason it's almost a week late? No doubt you haven't missed that, my computer collapsed on Saturday, and since then I've been living without the reliable source of high-speed interactivity for about 5 days. That's not the week I'm here to speak about though, this is the space for the week before the phase I faced for 5 days in shameless disgrace.

Not much to say about the previous seven days, they all flew away while I surfed on the waves of suddle cyberspace. I was all over the place, posting blogs, doing jobs, voting, quoting, emoting and floating, drifting and shifting colors face-lifting my sites sitting in my office chair day and night. Lots of important tasks finished, until the Saturday arrived when all opportunity diminished.

That's about it.

Week 14

Another week gone by I feel the time I fly I see the clear blue sky above my head red with sunshines downing my frown in cold dread yay. Then the week was gone and a new starts tomorrow the clouds roll over the world fills with sorrow. I bury my troubles for new ones to borrow and strive towards future days just a phase of flames and disgrace the days pass like plays a race against age the page turns obliged I keep living my life.

I've started keeping a schedule so I get more things done, a small red notebook, and this week all pages have been filled. It's working nicely. I've been out driving a lot - practicing, walking an hour or two each day, scripting a new RPG system for my site, translating 3 script language files, translating poker articles, designing, form-processing, updating, maintaining, organizing and roaming around a few communities... among other things. Doesn't seem like that much? Updating and Maintaining process don't come easy. I've been going through a few thousand files, downloaded a few hundred new files, updated a few hundred links and filled in a few hundred forms. :P

Now, time for cake, seriously, cake, have a good day peoples. :P

Three Reviews 14

Mmm, felt like watching movies, then I felt like reviewing. What a coincidence huh?! Here you go.

Tetsuo - The Iron Man (1988)

Despite it's title, this movie has nothing to do with the more modern American box office hit with the same name. As you can probably tell by the title this is an Asian movie, more specifically from Japan, a twisted masterpiece featuring an ordinary man apparently gone crazy, with illusions of metal parts appearing from within his body. He is not alone about this, the wires intertwine, the blood flies in fountains of hideous design and the story gets more and more confusing the further it goes. That he goes crazy is just my interpretation though, maybe it's meant to portray reality, through a twisted metamorphosis of metaphors, or maybe it's all just an outtake from some bad dream the producer once had. Regardless, it's a great movie, worth watching. Did I mention it's black and white as well? Don't let that affect you though.

The Iron Man (2008)

20 years later this movie comes out, the Iron Man, a story based on yet another one of Marvels marvelous comics featuring a superhero more heroic than any other with less magic and more machinery and great punchlines. Great plot, great action, great filmography and digital input. I loved watching it, and if you liked Batman, Daredevil, Hellrider, etcetc, you'll love this. Is the twenty year gap pure coincidence? Did the above inspire this? In some twisted way they are related, the moral of the story is the same, the synthetic view on society. The only thing new here is the color and justice. Oh, and the superhero, the above just contained a massive amount of broken pipes and cables, but if you look behind the scenes you will see some similarities.

Suicide Club (2002)

We all know that Asians don't have the same unmoral view on Suicide as we do, and when a cute teenage pop band starts playing a happy song this big suicide streak starts with over fifty schoolgirls jumping in front of a train at the same time. It gets worse and worse, bloodier and bloodier, and eventually the police find rolls with pieces of patched skin on the scene. Not a scary movie, but disturbing and deep. If you don't mind large amounts of sometimes a bit exaggerated but still pulse boosting blood puddles, it's definitely a recommended watch. Unless you speak Japanese, be sure to get the version with English subtitles.
