The gentle swaying motion of the train…

without comments

I’m on a train, heading back to Osaka from Kyoto. Just finished watching the movie “Minority Report”, and I have to say, I was pretty impressed.

I seem to remember it getting a pretty bad rap when it was released and a lot of my friends gave it a pretty lukewarm reception, but I really liked it considering it was a huge spectacle with lots of famous people in it. The future aspect of it (of course, with it being set in the year 2054, there was a heavy future aspect) was what most excited me. Silent highways, personal propulsion devices, retina scanners all over town, targeted advertising, talking holograms in shops like the Gap welcoming you back and trying to get you buy more tanktops (or whatever it was you bought the last time you were there). That sort of stuff can *only* come true, surely.

Anyway, I am in a bit of a panic. I have to make pizza dough when I get home, prepare a lasagne, clean my apartment (this is a major job… Take a look at the first post of this blog to get an idea of the state it is in now) and do some work-related stuff before 20:00. I also need to go to the supermarket to buy more ingredients too.

I am listening to the latest Strokes album at the moment- and for a first time listen it is pretty good. I guess this also means that something so familiar the first time you hear it becomes tired pretty quickly. I hope not. It would be nice to have this kicking around the heavy rotation playlist for a few months.
