Sdtrk: ‘Bossa nova supernova’ by Harmonic 33
As I’d mentioned, this past Friday, my mates and I caught ‘Steamboy’ on the big screen. I don’t know if it was worth almost a ten-year wait, and there were a couple of similarities between it and ‘Giant robo’ (
mad scientist overzealous inventor creates the Shizuma drive the Steam Ball, an unlimited fuel source that several parties want for themselves; also, Ray Steam’s granddad bore more than a passing resemblance to Franken von Folger), but we all agreed that it was pretty ace. I’ll give you this — it was indeed an ‘orgy of destruction’, as some review wag typed. Remember what happened to Neo-Tokyo towards the end of ‘Akira’? Well, ‘Steamboy’ gets rather close to that… *sigh* Gotta add that to my list of DVDs now…
Also, before we headed our separate ways after the film, Tim mentioned that he got four tickets to go see Bloc party, so I guess I’ll be at that show. I’ll be sure to wear comfortable shoes this time…
On Saturday eve, Derek, Tomas & I convened at Jeff’s abode, and watched ‘The Incredibles’ (which was better than I expected it to be) and the second ‘Lady Snowblood’ film. That Meiko Kaji’s a hottie, even when she’s drenched in the blood of her enemies. She’s got moxie!
Sunday I had full intention of taking a brand-new portrait of myself with Shi-chan, but the zit on the bridge of my nose prevented me from doing so. Gah. Hopefully later this week..
And there’s this thing.
‘”Poisonous”? But who would attempt to eat a robot?’ you ask. ‘And a giant one at that?’ No matter! Fight me, damnit! FIGHT ME!!
