Perhaps I’m weak at dealing with problems and stress of my real life. Thus, I
greatly enjoy sci-fi and fantasy films. Well made ones of course! Movies like
Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek. Unlike Aliens VS Predator, which I firmly believe is
one of the worst made films of the year.
And so, things I’m looking forward to for now.
Star Wars Episode III! I have watched
the trailer and it
leaves me impatient for the movie. Golden
Village has a newsletter
thing to inform it’s subscribers when advance ticket sales for this movie
begin in Singapore. Love the Darth Vader theme music!
劇場版 Air. I suppose the film was already
shown in Japan so I hope the fansub groups would release it soon. Just a few
days ago I finished watching the whole TV series. Had a “bittersweet” ending.
I’m serving Triad’s copies of the TV series in IRC. But you would be able to get it faster if you have a bittorrent client
installed. Those with routers might need to configure port forwarding.
Howl’s Moving Castle. This anime
film was recently shown in Singapore but I chose not to watch it in the local
cinemas for fear of watching it with children. Children who make lots of noises
and keep talking during the show. I understand that some people can’t resist and
want to discuss about a particular scene during the show. I would love to
discuss it only after it ends because while watching, I get absorbed and would
prefer to be left undisturbed while the film distorts my reality. Also waiting
for fansub groups.
Other than films I’m also looking forward to advancing the storyline in Final
Fantasy XI. I’m at the phase where this “game” no longer feels like any other
casual game. Because it’s players are all able to interact and communicate with
one another and there are players from many parts of the world, it feels like
having a second virtual life in a fantasy world where one does not have to
bother with filing his income taxes or worry about putting food on the table.
It’s a world where I weild a scythe and go around killing, adventuring and
meeting other people.
Oh yea, and I have yet to buy a new computer. Hope I could save enough by the
end of this month or the next. More problems are surfacing on my server machine
that’s running this blog. Seems like the harddisk begins to exhibit problems
when left running for more than 4-5 days and needs a bit of rebooting.
