Moon trailer

July 20, 2009


This is a great sci-fi film that I saw on the weekend. Sam Rockwell was really good but I couldn’t quite work out how I knew him (he was the main guy in Choke and Zaphod Beeblebrox in the newish Hitchhikers Guide). Check it out.

Still unemployed in Meanwhile City

March 11, 2009

To allay my unemployment blues, last Thursday I went into town and saw the film The Baader-Meinhof Complex. Baader and Meinhof were communist terrorists in Germany in the 1970s. I didn’t have any sympathy for them or their fellow terrorists by the end of the film – not sure if I was expecting to sympathise with them or not. As is always the case with watching a dramatised version of true events, I was left wondering how close to reality the story was. Another dramatisation of true events I would like to see is Milk, based on the life of Harvey Milk, America’s first openly-gay person elected to official office. I have seen the (very good) documentary The Times of Harvey Milk which I would recommend highly (and so feel I don’t really need to see the dramatised version now).

On Friday night, Paul and I saw the film Franklyn. It was ok. Not brilliant but entertaining enough. It was set in London and Meanwhile City.

On Sunday we had yum cha with some people I used to work with and it was nice to catch up with them.

I have a job interview today (fingers crossed!). Afterwards I’m going to Queensland House to vote in the Queensland election and I might go to Tate Modern.

I have actually been spending a lot of time on an art project about positive and negative thoughts. See some positive affirmations below:
I deserve love and success and happiness, cross stitch, 2009
