#821: Nufonia Must Fall

You know how when you witness something incredible by yourself, you wish everyone you ever cared about was there too, because you want them to have this feeling you have of surprised euphoria?  So they can understand what you’re talking about when you talk about it after, too, but mainly just so they can feel the happiness piercing their skin and seeping into their veins because it’s such a singular sensation you can’t possibly describe it using words?

But then at the same time, you’re kind of pleased you’re alone for it because you’re a tiny bit scared that if you were with those people–even though these are people you love and trust and connect with–they might not feel the way you do and then it would tarnish the memory just a little?

#805: See a robot ballet

Professional ballerinas don’t have to worry about robots taking over their jobs anytime soon.

Still, it was more than a little creepy to see these machines dancing around the stage, playing music, being applauded by the audience.

#727: Read Tenth of December

10th of December, 2011: Reeling from a breakup a month prior, just after having quit a job without a plan, I am hoping against hope (a weird idiom) that a prospective freelance gig will pull through–not so much for the money and sense of self-worth, which I need, but to give me something to concentrate on other than my failed relationship, which I need more desperately.  I’m playing a lot of Christmas songs on the piano in my underwear to help calm me down.

10th of December, 2012: I’ve now been back in New York after a 5 month hiatus for 5 months, and the job I have is slowly draining my passion for living, but instead of focusing on that, I am spending my free time writing entries for a joke tumblr called Reasons to Date Us Before the World Ends (you know, that whole Mayan calendar thing?).  I haven’t yet met the man who tells me the first book he will suggest for his soon-to-be-started book club is Tenth of December by George Saunders, but I will in a few weeks.

#700: Edge of Tomorrow

According to my brother, who has seen almost every movie in existence, this movie is not like Source Code. But I think it is. Never mind that based on the previews, I’d always thought Emily Blunt was a robot in this movie.  That’s not important.

What’s important is that Edge of Tomorrow is in fact a mix of Source Code and Groundhog Day.   Read the rest of this entry »

#432: Story

The concept of this store is great for people with short attention spans (so: most people).  Described as a magazine-like store, with “issues,” Story changes its theme and offerings every few months.

Right now the theme is “Art,” so of course I love it.

There was a big touch-screen art table thing (see below), and scarfs that were over $100, and for some reason there were also male masturbation toys (which my friend pointed out that of course I picked up first, though I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean; I picked it up because I didn’t know what it was and it looked cheap).
