How about that?

Brother, you can believe in stones... as long as you don't throw them at me!
After I saw that, I was just speachless... Interesting point of view, a new perspective from what I was used to...

Working to calm the techno-fearful

All I can say is that when I saw this image I've remembered all of the sudden of a fresh teacher I had in my 1st faculty year. One day she obviously couldn’t make her laptop and the projector work together…

Her solution was to give us the presentation by mail…

Just wish I had this image then... I'm sure it would have been very, very helpful!

Wong Kar Wai

It seems that I'm starting to be a Wong Kar Wai fan!
Was it worth it to
lose a finger for a
basket of eggs?
Last week I saw Dung che sai duk (Ashes of Time, 1994). It took me a while to get the meaning of this movie. Still, in the end, I realised that this movie has taught me something! I suggest you take your time with it; all I'm going to say is that it has a nice perspective on the fear of rejection...
If my memory of her
has an expiration date,
let it be 10,000 years...
The thing is that I couldn't stop only for one movie... This week I've also tried Chung hing sam lam (Chungking Express, 1994). I can say that I could feel Wong Kar Wai's fingerprint: his non-linear style of story-telling, intricate action plus a great recipe for a movie: two love-struck cops with their differeces and similarities.
Wong Kar Wai was also writer and director for both movies. His style made me both realise things I allready knew and learn new emotions. Now, there are at least ten new movies added to my "to watch" list...
All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray.
I've been for a walk on a winter's day.
I'd be safe and warm if I was in L.A.;
California dreamin' on such a winter's day.

Stopped in to a church I passed along the way.
Well I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray.
You know the preacher liked the cold;
He knows I'm gonna stay.
California dreamin' on such a winter's day.

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray.
I've been for a walk on a winter's day.
If I didn't tell her I could leave today;
California dreamin' on such a winter's day.
