good things today

  • updated my graphics website with ... well, some of the stuff it needs updated with.  Especially fic tributes.
  • rescheduled my trip out to Japan via California so that I can go see my dad and co for a couple of days before hand
  • watched one of my netflix movies - The Machinist - which wasn't as cool as it should have been given Christian Bale starved himself for it.  It pretended towards Memento, but never quite reached the same kind of tension, and was instead all about hard edges and delayed fear and ... at least to me ... almost obvious ending.

  • had good movie night with good friends last night.  We saw the new special edition of Blade Runner and it was just as amazing (maybe even more so w/out the silly voice over) as I remembered.  And we saw The Prophecy which was, in two words, pretty fantastic.  I can't believe I'd never seen it.  Erik Stoltz!  Christopher Walken!!!!
  • actually have a fic to rec on giles_fic_recs  (not that there aren't some great ones being produced at SOG, but I figure most people who watch one comm watch the other!)
