Sando - Shin Angyo Onshi

(no subject)

I keep registering for all kinds of sites, and unless I use a throw away password, I keep forgetting the passwords.

I have been logging into livejournal so rarely these days, that sometime soon I'll forget the password I have used on this site.

Till then:
run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run...


I haven't watched Blue, but I think I want to like the movie. Watching the sun recede as you sink deeper through the darker blues while you steadily grow every more desperate for air must be spectacularly beautiful.

Been diving, serially, through forty years of series by David Attenborough. I will try and write at length about it, but it has been a wonderful insight into progress of technology in TV, especially given that David Attenborough has apparently been an early adopter for a lot of technology.

I don't know if I have mentioned this, but I have become a huge Stephen Fry fan. Some[1] believe he is a pretender. I however think that he is one of the most intelligent, and, more importantly, funny persons around. Having said that, I believe that, while he is not as lazy as his friend Douglas Adams, Fry hasn't created enough lasting works[2].

There is a magnificent moment in the 'Bat' episode of Series B of QI, where he narrates two anecdotes about the Attenborough brothers, the first about David's encounter with some bats, and the second about Richard's assistant director in 'Gandhi' who beautifully captured the mood at Gandhi's funeral.

The most beautiful thing about the internet in general, and search engines in particular, is that fact that accidental connections appear that you may never have, in your normal life, encountered.

While trying to find a clip of Fry mimicking the Attenborough brothers, I searched for "Attenborough gandhi bat", which lead me to the website for a very promising movie: Gandhi at Bat with a promising 9.5/10 on IMDB.

1: This is not wikipedia. Weasel words are welcome.
2: The fault lies, probably, in my appetite, and not in his production volume.
