So bizzare. Condry was out of town this week, and his substitute was the move Perfect Blue. It's by Satoshi Kon, who would later do Paprika, and it's certainly the most freaky supernatural-free movie I've seen. Fight Club, once you figure out the gimmick it all make sense, but here there were so many false leads and layers of indirection, it's just like boingo. I was sorta hoping the dude would get redeemed, but this way was probably better. I can totally imagine having a conversation with Mom at an unZanish restaurant trying to figure out what "actually happened".

Speaking of movies, I also saw Mar adentro/The Sea Inside, a movie about euthanasia, for Spanish class recently. I thought it was well done. It was certainly very touching at times, but it wasn't nearly as sad as I had been lead to belive. It's no Todo sobre mi madre, but it's still good.

In jamakusai news, Gigo seems to be trying to die again, and this time it's not something I can fix myself. Mass Storage error 2STF/1/4. It's out of warrenty, but I guess I'll just have to see if I can get my junk off of it and then actually pay for repairs this time or something. You'd think I'd have learned not to keep any photos uniquely on Gigo HD after what happened last time... ah, well.
