I guess I've been home about a week now, so the excuses for not getting on are diminishing rapidly.

The short list of reading material includes Practices of an Agile Developer...er, well...thats it for now...excluding the 8 volumes of xxxHolic and beginnings of Tsubasa that I hauled back from Japan. ^_^

Along the skating front I finally got by the 10 mile mark during this mornings workout at roughly 5 minutes per mile. An initial goal is to skate a half-marathon under an hour...which shouldn't be too far off. Then work up from there...the afternoon thunderstorms during this time of year put a crimp in the workout though...

And I just got back from Superman Returns. There are enough reviews out there on it so i won't comment much but it was fun seeing all the tributes and references to the previous Superman movies...and I suspect there was even more that I missed along those lines. For those that haven't yet made it to the theatres I won't mention any spoilers but many parts of the movie were rather predictable... though I suspect if Lois...no...'said I wasn't going to go there...

Blade Runner: The Director's Cut

I saw of the original release of this film way too many years ago. I finally saw the Director's Cut DVD tonight. I'm not sure if it's good or bad to say the impact this film made on me has been deep and lasting. It certainly was a dark film, but there were too many aspects that resonated too closely for reasons I'm not sure of even today. Of the curious, I'm not sure I realized it at the time that all of the language in the background was Japanese; some of which I understood *this* time around...hmm... ^_^

I think Priss' and Batty's death scenes were parts most remembered from almost 2 decades ago...and two lines from the film that I wonder, would they not apply to any place...any person?

"All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain."

"It's too bad she won't live. But then again who does?"
