Well, my car is, thankfully, back in my possession. I can't driver her until January 30th, but at least she's not getting auctioned off.

Incidentally, I was quite surprised to find that everything that I had left in the car was still there. Everything.

My inner child is sixteen years old today

My inner child is sixteen years old!

Life's not fair! It's never been fair, but while
adults might just accept that, I know
something's gotta change. And it's gonna
change, just as soon as I become an adult and
get some power of my own.

On the lighter side, I watched Gattaca for the first time in a while the other night. Although it is not a perfect film by any means, it is nice to see a genuine and rewarding attempt at creating thought-provoking adult science fiction.

Between Slawomir Idziak's autumnal photography and Michael Nyman's most lyrical score this side of The End of the Affair, Gattaca is a visual and aural feast, tied together by an engaging cautionary tale.

There are many details in the film that reward additional viewings from the helix-shaped stairwell to the Esperanto announcements in the Gattaca complex. Literally every element of the film is a reference to its main subject, in one form or another.

The Superbit edition of the film is quite handsome indeed. Although I have read reviews referring to edge-enhancement and digital artifacting on this transfer, I saw none. In addition to a sharper picture than the standard DVD, the DTS track smokes the Dolby track on the other disc. The sound is much more detailed here, completely ignoring the audible "procenium" that is found on many 5.1 tracks.

...probably comes as a surprise to no-one.

You know, I really have meant to cut down on the amount of pictures that I throw on here. My friend Art mentioned that the page takes a while to load nowadays. I'm trying, I really am.
