At long last, I got to revisit one of my main sushi haunts.. and the chef immediately enthused over my return. ^_^;; My bento was indeed still waiting, and it wasn't long before it was performing a noble function once more.



It wasn't much longer before the fish appeared. ^_^



Also finally got to see The Fall, which primaeros may recall; Tarsem Singh's visual epic from 2006. It happened to be running for two days, and I happened to have a few passes, thanks to amelitatwinstar. As cinematographically lush as you could have ever hoped for. The storyline was merely an off-the-cuff piece of storytelling, which really didn't hurt things, though perhaps the pacing towards the end became somewhat fragmented.

And I really need to try arranging some more meetups! ^_^;
 
 
 
 
 
 
Was lucky enough to see The Fall twice in theaters, once back home and again when it was at the independent theater here at school. Couldn't let my friends miss it. You're definitely right about the issues near the end, but what endeared the movie to me was how the pretension of some bits was tempered by a general sense of humor and self-awareness. I tend to forgive the faults of any movie (hell, any form of "art" or the like) that doesn't take itself too seriously. (This is, at least, the impression I remember having. It's been a while, and I can't actually remember any specific examples...)

And wow, does that boat look appetizing. Beats the hell out of our Panda Express imitation sushi. If (nay, when!) I ever get out to the west coast, I'm heading straight from the airport to the nearest sushi joint.
